God Bless America! 🇺🇸

I started out this morning headed to the post office to get some stamps… You know what happened 😊

In my rush to get started, I forgot what today is & Who it honors…

So, let me say –

‘Have a Great Martin Luther King, Jr. Day’!

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections…

It’s already starting out to be a very… Interesting 2021. Thank the Lord for Sunday!

We started out with breakfast 🥞 🍳 or should I say Brunch…

Brunch was good! Buttermilk pancakes 🥞 with whipped butter and blueberry 🫐 syrup, ham and eggs 🍳 Don’t forget the coffee ☕️

Now, it’s on to Football 🏈 Go Titans!

I’m rooting for the Titans!

Enjoy your day off! My advice for the future is to turn off the TV 📺 and all other news sources. Your mental health will skyrocket! 😊

Playoff Fever/Exhaustion

Yes, I laid off today… Did some personal things, forgot about my blog, then sat down to watch a little football at the house… With my crew!

Here’s my “Football crew” today! They know a little something about competition 😂
Tomorrow’s agenda.

With all the B.S. going on in the world, a little football sounds pretty good!

Have an “Uneventful” weekend…

Go TITANS!

Thanks Pete! We all need a long weekend! 

By the way, I’m talking about Mr. – 👇🏻
“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”

Sunday Reflections…

Rainy night followed by a rainy morning. I’ve been sipping coffee since early, thinking about the holidays and all the family we got to see and all the stuff we did. We are having one more late holiday get together with some out of town family and then it’s all about New Years!

Only a few days left in this decade! What will I do with them…

Today is the last Sunday of the year! Last Sunday of the decade to be exact! It’s been a good year! Fast but good. I have started a list of goals for 2020. #1 in the list, spend more quality time with family and friends. The more I think about it, that’s a goal worth striving for.

Have a great Sunday with family and friends!

New Years is Coming!

Black Friday – “The Morning After”…

It’s been a great holiday! Family & Friends came to visit, catch up a bit & eat!

The meal was followed by Football 🏈 and an epic nap! That’s a hat trick for an old man😊

Now, it’s a road trip for Black Friday! Wish us luck …

Y’all have a wonderful weekend!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful, cold morning! I was going to do this blog on the porch with my morning coffee, but I didn’t make it 😊 A little too cold 🥶 … Yesterday was our Annual Fall Fest, and it was a Great one! Lots of family’s came out to take part in the festivities & Eat lunch with us. Kids fell in love with the animals, all the pumpkins were carved, the piñata was busted by a determined group of kids 😊 And Adam led a great class on seasonal pond maintenance.

I made a collage out of the 200 pictures I had to choose from 😊 Lots of Fun yesterday!

This was the last event of the season for the Nursery, which is always bittersweet… We have had some really high notes this year at our events & as always, I can’t wait till next year! ❤️

Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas are coming fast now. I hope we can all enjoy every minute!

Have a Great Sunday!
