It Was a Good Day, With Lots of Sunshine!


July 1, 11 Nelson park pics 001

We’ve had a glorious sunny day, here in BC. 🙂

It brought this great Beatle’s classic to mind:

Good Day Sunshine 

(click to sing and dance along. some lovely, heart-warming, funny photos in this video too)

After all these years, their music is still as fresh and vibrant as ever. 

  Funny how the sun can make you feel so much more productive too!

Don’t ya love it? 😉

  1. thanks Paulette! 🙂

  2. Geraldine, it pleases me to say we had the exact same kind of day! 🙂 I love the photo and that Beatles’ song. You’re so right – sunshine just makes the soul sing. I hope we get plenty more of these gorgeous May days!

  3. Sunshine does make you feel happy. Great post and great tune.

  4. i know that song well reminds of my teens and yes it’s warm outside, sauna bath inside all those windows with sunshine in…thank God for fans….:)

  5. Love the video. Even if the sun wasn’t shining it makes the world feel sunny.

  6. We had a wonderful day in Montreal too and more in the forecast… But no flowers yet, such as the ones in your beautiful photo. Although yesterday I saw a magnolia in full bloom and it was gorgeous.
    Indeed, it’s amazing how much the sun does for us. 🙂

  7. Hi Talon, That’s perfect, sunshine DOES make the soul sing! 🙂

    Hi Joe, I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    Hi Lorraine, The Beatles will live on forever I think. Not the kind of music anyone forgets, even the young kids now. I read a cute comment on ITunes about the Beatles one day, some “youngster” said: ‘what a great new group” about them. 😉 But they still loved the music, in spite of not knowing the full story. LOL

    Hi Val, I have to keep this video handy when I’m having a bad day, it always makes me smile. Someone did a great job putting that one together. Glad you liked it.

    Hi Vesper, This is a file photo I had, its not that lush here yet. But things are budding and turning green. I’m so happy you had a beautiful day to enjoy too, on the other end of the country. And finally, NO SNOW!!! Yikes, thought it would never leave the East this year.

    Wishing You a Happy Day, G

  8. such pretty flowers!
    sunshine feels so good after a long winter~

  9. I love a day with sun; it just makes me so happy. Everything flows better and I find I get more done too! Hugs! 🙂

  10. It’s too hot here … around 40 degree Celsius … so not much need of sunshine where I stay 😛

  11. Hi Tammie, Aren’t they! I think these are a type of apple blossom but I’m hopeless with plant names so not sure. 😉

    Hi Ruinwen, Yes, everything flows…I like that, so true!

    Hi Green Speck, LOVE your blog name btw, wow, that is HOT especially for May. Where do you live?

    Happy Wednesday and hope the sun is shining where you are, G
