Room with a View & Wonderful Weather

Just like one of my favorite movies...
If you haven't seen A Room with a View ~
Please check it out

Woke up to church bells ringing a few blocks away

We're having wonderful weather
in the 70s here in California

Sending warm breezes your way
wherever you are~

Grabbed my new camera

Walked around the yard...
Now that reminded me of Howard's End
One of my lazy cats just lounging

A little bouquet I put on my front porch

My other silly cat trying to play Petanque
in the shade of the bistro table

Just wanted to send a little sunshine
Your Way ;)

Au Revoir for now~

Gorgeous photos my dear, and I will have to watch both Howard's End and Room with a View again - it's been a while!! Both are great.. Emma Thompson is one of my favorite actresses aside from Meryl Streep - Hope you have a pleasant week Tracie! xoxo

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for such a heart-warming comment. I never imagined I would meet such nice people when I entered blog land a few months ago. Your words were very much appreciated.

Love the photos.

I am very behind with watching old movies...but I am headed out for this one.

I cannot believe I was not one of your followers...but I am NOW

I have the 12.2 Rebel and LOVE it

What a great shot of your silly cat. I love cats but with Sammie, I can't have an indoor one and sure wouldn't subject a cat to the great outdoors here.

Jenny Craig is great. I lost 4 1/2 lbs in one week! I can feel my pants slowly becoming just a little loser and I feel so much better, knowing I'm finally doing something I only complained about before.

It's 80 degrees here today and I'm lovin' it!

Hi Tracie,
Thanks for the sunny thoughts. Your state is so-o- gorgeous and I know that you are enjoying the Spring like weather there.
Happy days!

Beautiful photos! I love where I live now, but when I see photos of California, it makes me kinda miss it...the weather is wonderful.

Marilyn in NM said...

I was just thinking of watching Howard's End again. One of my friends loves that movie so we've been planning a movie afternoon. You inspired me to get it out and call her!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am feeling lots better and am walking upright once

Simply Dandy said...

Ahh very envious of your weather. We still have lots and lots and lots of snow and it is a whopping 10 degrees today.

I have missed you, we have definitely lost touch with each other haven't we?


Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hey LeAnn,
I'm headed over to find you right now... I think you changed your blog again. Always keeping things fresh! On my way ;)

Counting Your Blessings said...

Thanks for the warm up - we need it in the Mid West. Polly and I have been begging for the warm weather to invite itself back and the snow to begin piddling away. Howard has the right idea - stretch out on the sun warmed pebbles and have a relaxing day dream. -Mr Blessings

shabbydreaming said...

Hi Sweet tracie!!Ohh how lovely to be woken by the sound of church bells ringing!! Now that would be nice!! All we get woken up by around here is the sound of fast cars speeding around the streets! AH NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT!! I love being at my dad's in the morning's you get woken by the birds making their morning calls to each other!! so sweet!!
Hope you are well Ive got a a new blog please pop over soon!!

Brissonte' said...

So love seeing photos of your precious kittys. My two cats bring such joy and contentment to me. I cannot imagine a life without them. Colleen

Counting Your Blessings said...

And we need some warm weather and sunshine around here. It's been really cold but I've been hearing some shallow promises by the weathermen that it's supposed to "warm" up to the 40's this weekend. LOL Blessings... Polly

What happened to our beautiful weather? I have the fireplace on today. Wanted to let you know that I received my first issue of Porch. Love it. Am working on my article next week. Thank you again for asking me!!

Warm Wishes,
Karen Eileen

Michelle said...

Oh Tracie, we are so alike in taste when it comes to movies. Room with a View is one of my FAVORITES! I also loved Howard's End. Heck, I love any Merchant Ivory film. Aren't they British. :) Your garden is so lovely, no wonder your cats look so relaxed. I envy the weather you are having. Send some sun my way!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Gypsy Mermaid said...

Sandi said...

Wow...70's sounds wonderful! We were in the 50's today and it is supposed to be 65 tomorrow, but then right back to COLD and possible snow. I think I will move to California!!
