I'm not in the best of moods today. I've been feeling this nastiness coming on since Sunday. I'm tired, ornery and emotional. This isn't my normal disposition, so I don't exactly know how to deal with it other than a good night's rest...which isn't an option for another 11 hours or so. To combat my unfortunate frame of mind, I'd like to focus on one of the happiest of God's creations: the sunflower. Oh that I could be a sunflower today!

In fact, I rather wish I was sitting on a sunny porch somewhere, gazing out at a field of Sunflowers, sipping lemon tea, wearing this outfit:

Sunflower 2

You can join me if you'd like (with a little imagination). What kind of flower brings you up when you're down and inspires you? I'd like to know.

just looking at these pictures lifted my spirits. i'm having a jonah day too. :(

would love an outfit just like that, please.

i adore sunflowers (as you know! we're in agreement on this!!!). peonies also make me smile. they're not usually so bright, but they're so graceful and lovely...i feel honored to be in their presence. gerbera daisies are cute, bright, and quirky. hydrangeas remind me of my grandmother's house.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well--that's no fun! I had a day semi-like that earlier.

I like white roses, but really anything from the color of creation will cheer me up! :)

Hope you get to feeling better!

i LOVE daisys. always have. gerbera daisys are my favorite. so many bright colors and they are so big and wonderful!
