Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good Morning! 🌞 The weekend was Awesome! But, it’s Monday morning and before I can saddle up for another week, I need to get my mind right. A calm, focused mind is a powerful thing. Sitting by my waterfall for a few minutes always does the trick… I’m able to clear my mind and focus, I get that feeling of Zen

I hope you enjoyed this little clip. A Waterfall is a little bit of magic 🪄 A bit of Zen.

Have a great Monday!

Christmas Eve is Here! Were YOU Good?

All of our childhood dreams and fantasies hinge on this day and night 🌝 Santa flying through the sky in a magical sleigh 🛷 delivering toys and gifts to all the good kids… Was Santa a big part of your life as a child? He was ‘IT’ for me… Santa with Elvis a very close second 😊 (I’m being serious baby)…

I think Santa was in awe of Elvis…

So, here’s to all the good boys and girls out there 🥂 Were making a comeback 🎅🏻

Merry Christmas 🎄

A Visit from St. Nicholas

By: Clement Clarke Moore

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ’kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap, 
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow 
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, 
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St. Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack.
His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle,
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”

Have a Wonderful Christmas Eve!

Good Monday Morning! And “Merry Christmas”! 🎄🎅🏻 Only a few days left before the big day and tensions are running high… Here’s a little something that always helps to lower stress and tension for me – A Waterfall!

The mossy stone, the natural driftwood and oh that sound… All I have to do is sit down with my coffee and sip while I listen to the waterfalls splash and gurgle and all that tension just melts away. It’s the best Sound Therapy that I know of! Can you say Zen…

Have a wonderful day! And a very Merry Christmas 🎄
