Sunday Reflections…

Sunday Morning Breakfast 🥞 🍳 🥚 It’s an institution at our house 😊 I am the short order cook taking orders… And that’s fine with me ❤️

It’s important to start the day with a smile 😊

Fried eggs, pancakes 🥞, omelettes, scrambled eggs, Maple syrup, blueberry syrup with whipped cream, you name it, I’ll fix it 😎

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.
   ~ A.A. Milne


Have a Blessed Day 🙏🏻

Looking at the Positive Side of Things…

Summer heat is still here, but it’s winding down… Next weekend is the big Labor Day Celebration that we all look forward too. Cookouts, boating, swimming, volleyball, etc. And even though it’s the ‘unofficial end of Summer’, it’s a long weekend for many & the beginning of a new season, So we got that goin for us 😊

What else is lining up for Holidays and long weekends in our future 👇🏻

2020 has been a struggle, but there’s always something positive if you look.

So, I’m gonna take the small things, the good things of 2020 as I find them and be thankful. I have also found that if you sit down with a pen 🖊 and paper 📝 and write down your blessings as you count them, it will blow you away!  ❤️

 

PS: Here’s one – It’s Saturday! 💥

Have a Great Day!

A Break From Performance To Training | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

One of the things about running your own business is that things get, VERY busy! The old saying “If you want something done right, do it yourself” rings true daily… LOTS of hats 🧢 to wear… The daily grind can get overwhelming & you loose that line between your personal time/life and your business. 

Don’t let your business run YOU! Take time to stay organized & to train your employees and yourself 🤔

I am switching my focus for the next couple of days to ‘organizing and training in my Business. As a business owner you find yourself constantly Performing! Work work work, perform, perform, perform! DON’T forget to train some as well! That is most of our (small business owners) biggest downfalls… 

I made a commitment long ago to stay on top of Technology and of advances in my field. I also try to invest in my Team so that we ALL stay on top of our game! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I’ve got to go to my next “Zoom Room” meeting now, so I want to wish everyone a good day!

PS: I will be sharing a few things I’m learning now with you soon.

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Good Morning! It’s #Waterfallwednesday! In fact, it’s the last Waterfall Wednesday of August! Time is flying by… But in this backyard retreat, things are a little bit slower… A bit more relaxed if you will. The lady of the house Works from home, so this is part of her ‘break room’ and her getaway for lunch. Her dogs 🐕 Love to get outside as well – Best drinking water ever 😊 

I wanted to share this gorgeous view with y’all today for Waterfall Wednesday  

This beautiful Water Garden totally changed this private backyard.

You don’t realize how much you would enjoy a Water Garden like this, until it’s right outside your back door 🚪 It will literally change your life for the better! 

Have a Great, Waterfall Wednesday!

Pond Tip | Tuesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Good Morning! 🌞 It’s late Summer and everything about our Ponds is flourishing. But  September comes next week, and with it cooler temps and Fall… That leads me to my Late Summer Pond/Koi Health Tip for the week – 

Your Koi, LOVE to eat! And it’s important that they go into Fall and Winter “Fat and Sassy”! That stored fat will last them till next Spring when the water warms back up to feed again. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

Feed twice a day if you can now. Feed the growth formula Koi food and feed some fruits 🍉 and veggies that are higher in carbs. It will help them put on some much needed Fat for the coming cooler seasons. 

Koi LOVE snacks 😊 So make sure they start loading up now. It’s great insurance for the colder months to come! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Well folks there you have it. A great excuse to get out by the Pond even more 😎 Take a little snack for yourself as well… 

Happy Pondering 🤔

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

I don’t know about you, but I Love to see our Flag blowing In the wind! Such a beautiful symbol of our great country!

Have a Wonderful Monday!

Sunday Reflections…

The weather has been so nice! Cool Sunday mornings in August mean ‘get out and look around’! Everything’s so lush, the butterfly‘s 🦋 are everywhere, the dry flies are buzzing… Late Summer in Tennessee ❤️

Such a beautiful day to get out and ‘Feel’ late Summer! Fall will be here before we know it… I’m gonna try to get all the Summer I can till it’s gone 😊





Heat still sizzles in the fields
In August summer still yields
The sun shines to no regret
Wind sauntering ’til sunset

‘though heat is being cool off by the rain
Preserving flowers, and meadow – green
But summer still taking what it brings
The August incense with fugacious wings

Bounty blooms, butterflies, bees are insane
Birds, crickets sing and the night listens
Summer’s sky, bright burst so clear
It’s the late August in summer’s fair

Summer in August still in standby
Sooner balmy weather is coming by
The hot temper will bicker with cool air
With soothing breeze here comes September

   ~ Ency Bearis


Have a great Sunday!
