Quickie Quote: Painting by Attitude

It’s a birrizzy rainy day here in Williamsburg. Dreariness abounds as cold winds whip sleety rain (and dreariness) around. It’s the kind of day that makes hiding out under warm blankets an inviting endeavor: maybe the sun will come out tomorrow, so let’s fast-forward the bleakness of today?

warm (comfortingly inviting) blankeys

One of my flippy calendars had this quote for today:

“Attitude is the mind’s paintbrush. It can color any situation.” Barbara Johnson

Even though today’s forecast is cold, dreary & bleak, I can outcast it with my attitude by painting something brighter inside?

’nuff said. Here’s something to do in the rain: sing!

This one-minute video is brought to you by VA’s iPhone & Freddy the Frog (of Astaire aspirations) — a giftie from big sis Shere (so rainy days & Mondays won’t get me down!)

grace, peace & rainy-day attitudes

    Love the voice and personality of that cute little ophthalmologically-challenged amphibian.

      Although he’s definitely a rainy day crooner, he adds ‘ribbeting’ delight to any day! ☔️🐸☔️☀️🐸☀️

    Quite a cold front has moved in … the winds have REALLY picked up, even way down here in Wilmington. That looks like a very warm blanket and cozy place to hold up. Great quote from Barbara Johnson, and Freddie the 🐸 definitely makes you smile 😊

      Cin – Monday’s pouring rain became pounding snow – I’ve never seen such big snowflakes! It all melted Tuesday, but what a riot to have snow in March in Virginia. I am a Barbara Johnson groupie. She gives us the gift of laughter to help deal with hard stuff. ❄️🐸❄️💨😜💨
