Good Morning Sleepyhead

such joy 
sleep in
snowed in 
no school
wake up
when your 
body chooses
to view
 the world
with wonder

  1. You captured the wonder, joy and sweetness quite well. (((Laura)))

  2. thanks Lori...the house is quiet again...Sunday morning and the girls (we have my niece here) are sleeping in...I love quiet sleep in mornings.

  3. Wonderful, what an inspirational blog :D

  4. Aw, that's so cute. I used to love snow days when I lived in New York. Now, in Southern New Mexico, snow is a welcome novelty.

    But I'm having a quiet Sunday morning too. Enjoy yours.

  5. What a stunning shot, Laura!

    I love snow days - they allow us to feel like we're playing hookey without any repercussions :)

  6. Oh...that is just the best feeling ;) Lovely photo Laura. Hope you are having a beautiful day.

  7. looks like you have snow there- I am sure children love the snow days- no school plus the beauty and wonder of the snow outside.

  8. lovely!

    resons snow makes me giddy.

  9. Two lovely poems arrived with the swirl of snowflakes!

  10. A delightful, soft facial expression! And a sweet stone!

  11. A beautiful portrait of youth and hope. I love it!

    (When I clicked on your SSS entry, I got the msg that the page didn't exist...)

  12. Ah yes, I remember that 'Hooray, snow day!!!' feeling! It really was a treat when that happened to me though, since in Montreal they very rarely closed the public schools since school buses can get through almost anything...

  13. Laura,

    Such a peaceful feeling when all is still and the snow adds it's blanket to cover the sleeping household.

    I remember with joy the feeling of peering out of steamed up windows and sensing the stillness that lay around me. Here the fog serves to create a similar effect. Good weather for art making...

  14. Sleepyhead looks beautiful :)

  15. That's beautiful! Children must love being snowed in if it means a little time off from school :)

    I hope you have a lovely week ahead Laura!

  16. gorgeous photo.
    and everyday should have a snow day freedom

  17. I love this image so much. Beautifully captured.

  18. Lovely! To "wake when my body wants to" is one of the true joys of being retired. I hope I can maintain a small portion of the sense of wonder that beautiful little girl shows!

  19. Laura, you have certainly captured the joy. What a beautiful photograph!

  20. What a beautiful picture. So sweet. An angel.

  21. What a wonderful photo. The expression on her sweet face says it all!
