Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! The river is smooth as glass and it feels so good outside 😊 Sunday morning with my family, on the river, at the marina for breakfast is always a Great Day! ❤️

The dogs know what Sunday morning means… BACON 🥓💥

 

This is the final leg of Jo & I’s 26th Anniversary celebration 😊 We had to include Jacob and the pups to really celebrate! What better way than a day on the river 😊

“That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Beautiful sunrise this morning! I Love watching the Sunrise! I was thinking this morning how simple & available it is, but few take advantage of the beauty & power of a Sunrise. To me it’s a simple blessing that comes everyday to enjoy… The older I get the more I crave it 😊

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”

~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

 

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Memorial Day is so much more than the beginning of the Summer season. It’s our time as a nation to reflect upon and honor the memory of the many soldiers & sailors who gave their lives in the service of our great country. We are literally standing on their shoulders… If not for their sacrifices, we would not have the freedom that we enjoy! We owe them everything…

Thank you! To all the men and women who gave all so we could have so much… 

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.”
    ~ John McCrae

 

God Bless America!

Sunday Reflections…

Cold, icy mornings are great for sleeping in 😴 We stayed up late watching movies 🎥 with our son last night – Tha’ Birthday boy 😊

My little boy ain’t so little any more… 17 years old & 6’2”!

We are going to stay in today & watch a little football and spend some good quality time with each other. Time is flying by!  It’s here & it’s gone… 17 years it seems, in the blink of an eye…

I’m counting my blessings today. And trying to figure out where all the time has gone 🤔

Have a great Sunday!

 

PS: Go Pats! 🏈

Thanksgiving Weekend “To-Do” List… PS: I’m gonna need a day off after this!

This is always a busy weekend! Cooking & then cleaning up from the ‘Big Dinner’, is a given… But my personal list of to-dos seems to grow every year 🤔

  •  Take down and store Fall/Thanksgiving decorations with my wife.  Then –
  • Fire up the smoker & put some meat on for later…
  • Get in the attic and carry the tree, decorations & other Christmas decor down & put together/set up.

    Just a few Christmas trees from years past.

  • Plant 150 Daffodil bulbs.

    The traditional time to plant Spring flowering bulbs is between Thanksgiving & Christmas.

  • Outdoor Christmas lighting (Not a lot)…
  • Trash duty.

Then dinner and a night out…

Wow! Looking at my list, this looks a bit ambitious 🤨 😂

Have a great Holiday Weekend! And pace yourself 😊
