While the skies over the city are were rather overcast earlier, the sun has finally broken through and it promises to be a fairly nice day. I also got another ray of Sunshine from fellow blogger, Jenny Kellerford from The Dreamweaver’s Cottage. Jenny is a very sweet, talented woman who has nominated me for the Sunshine Award. I know I’ve mentioned her before, so if you haven’t dropped by her blog yet, you should really go check it out.
