Throwback Thursday… #throwbackthursday

I’ve been going through pictures again 😊 Grouping, dating, archiving, etc… I LOVE timeline photos equally as well as I do “before and after” pictures of projects and places. Here’s a couple of my sister and me – Kids (early 70’s), Young adults (89) & a fairly recent one. Wow! How time flies !

We haven’t aged tooo bad… I mean, I’ve seen worse 😊 Christie looks great!

My offering for #throwbackthursday !

 

PS: 1989 is the year I started my business! I was just a kid 😊

The Daily Grind Affects Us All!

Back by popular demand… A day in the life of MIKE! 

They tell me that most of us get more conservative as we get older. It makes sense, we get married, have kids, we earn more $$ and have more to conserve! We also set up routines that we follow throughout our daily lives  – exercise, eating, checking email, etc.. So I got to wondering if everyone across all boundaries followed suit?

Check this out! – A day in the life of Mike…

Mike likes his morning brew! You wouldn’t believe how cranky he gets if he ain’t had his Java!!’

You know how it is, coffee gets you started, then you gotta get ready for the day!

The old “morning constitutional” – With all the daily chores ahead – this is a great time to do a little multitasking & check my email & texts!

If I don’t stretch and exercise, my whole day is off…

Believe me folks, the “middle age spread” is REAL! Gotta eat right and do my crunches!

This time of the year with school & church festivities, there is always something to contribute 🎃

Guess who drew “bake sale” at the school fundraiser… Red Velvet Cake is the perfect choice!

It’s hard to catch a minute to just… Relax

Mike needs a little “Me time” every now and again – nothing better than kicking off my shoes 👠 and enjoying a good show and a cold drink!

You might even think the monotonous life we all leed has tamed & subdued Mike to the point that Murder is just off the menu… ?

Oh well… You know it’s hard for a leopard to change his spots 🎃

Happy Halloween 🎃 👻

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

Old Glory waving in the breeze conveys a wonderful feeling. This was a milder morning than today. But any day that she still waves in the breeze is a good day! Something ALL Americans can agree on!

God Bless America! 🇺🇸💥

Do you still display the Stars and Stripes?

My offering to bring a little Zen into your day!

God Bless America! 🇺🇸💥

Sunday Reflections…

The color is really changing in the landscape now. The Maples and Dogwoods are at peak. I try to keep my eye on the changing colors every Fall. It’s such a beautiful time of the year 🍁 But, blink and you’ll miss something. You just gotta get out there to enjoy it 😊

Fall color is here today, gone tomorrow… Get out and see it now 😊

”In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.”

~ Rose G. Kingsley

Have a Happy Day!

1 Dozen Days To Go! Have YOU Carved A Jack-O-Lantern Yet? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We are 12 days away from Halloween 🎃 We LOVE to carve pumpkins 🎃 in our house! In fact, we will carve at least 1 Jack-O-Lantern every day from now to ‘All Hallows Eve’… Think “12 days of Halloween” 👻

Here are a few of my favorites. Some are ours, some were done by others & some are just  deco Jack-O-Lanterns that we display every year. To me, they just set the mood for the season 😊

Get as creative as you want! Pumpkin carving is good for the soul!😊 This was carved by a very creative young lady at our recent Fall Fest! 

Have some fun this weekend and carve a Pumpkin 🎃 ‘Tis’ The Season!
