66 - Adventures in Yellow

Even though we've had some absolutely beautiful March days this year in Philly, we've also gotten quite a lot of rain. And while I'm used to the grey days of Seattle, these are a bit different.

When it rains here, it rains. You can't really go outside to do anything, you're cold and miserable, and really, the day only feels good for curling up on the couch in front of the fire, wrapping up tightly in a blanket, and reading a good book with a steaming mug of hot chocolate to sip.

Sadly, we don't have a fireplace in our house, by the time I get home there's not really any time to "just sit", and I'm usually so tired that if I read before my actual bedtime, it'll just put me to sleep (reading is a necessary part of my bedtime ritual).

As you might've guessed, yesterday started out as one of those rainy Philly days. We've actually had a number of them the past couple weeks. So, I decided to try and cheer myself up with some good doses of brightness. And what better color to use than yellow, right?

So, here's a bit of yellow happiness from photos over the past couple of weeks - and even some from yesterday. Once the rain went away and the sun decided to come out, that is...

(One of the lovely roses Josh gave me... he's just good like that.)

Now, don't you feel better? I sure do. =)

I'm glad you two enjoyed the yellow like I did. It's seriously good medicine on a rainy day (and today happens to be another one here).

I was hoping to get a slightly different perspective on the stoplight... but, well, stoplights are usually pretty high up, and I'm only so tall!

And Robin, I very specifically thought of you with those plates. Glad it could bring you happiness :)
