Sunshine came softly...

More sunshine than clouds this week... WooHoo!!


The green beans and baked sweet potatoes were the prefect suppertime treat... especially with the fried chicken that rounded out the meal. While fried chicken was on the menu several times a week during my growing up years, it is relegated to "very seldom" status at this stage of our lives!



This week's smile: The first daffodil... very welcome, indeed! There are promises of many more to come. 

Enjoy your week.. hope it's filled with sunshine and smiles! Don't forget to spread a little love... Valentine's Day is Saturday. Remember an elderly or shut-in friend with a call or card. It will mean more than you know!

Joining Karen of My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday. Please visit and spread the sunshine!

    1. Lorrie.. I am delighted each day as more and more buds open. I am not a winter person so the yellow daffodils bring many smiles!

  5. I love that first photo! We have a few daffodils blooming too...it makes me so happy. Even though winters here in GA are far different than back home in Nebraska, I'm ready for blooming flowers and gardens.

    Happy Monday! ♥

    1. Sarah... I often think of my native Georgian nephew when you mention your Nebraska home. He traded our southwest Georgia home for Omaha! Definitely a different world for a South Georgia boy and his family! Hope you are enjoying our glimpses of Spring in your new home.

  7. Dear Susan,
    the beans, potatoes and chicken sound nice to me (we eat less meat nowadays too). Did you stuff a lemon into the bird - first boiled a bit, the lemon, than pricked a bit? The first tiny daffodils start on my windowsill (inside), then I put them on the balcony. I wish you a beautiful week!

    1. Britta... I love lemon chicken, but this time we were a bit naughty on the health side. I soaked chicken breasts in egg with a dash of Tobassco sauce (hot pepper sauce) then dredged in flour and fried in peanut oil... The most Southern way to prepare chicken. Not something we indulge in often, but a delicious reminder of our Southern roots! I will definitely try your lemon instructions soon!

  8. Your dinner sounds delicious, Susan! The vegetables look great with the sunlight on them and the daffodil is beautiful. I'm always thrilled to see the first bloom in the garden. Right now, though, it's off to shovel I go!

    1. Oh, Karen... I have never been anything but a Southern girl so I can only commiserate through images rather than experience! I hope that Spring comes soon to all of us! Take care... stay warm and safe!
