Saturday Fun & Saturday Songs…

Do Saturdays still hold any excitement for you? The idea ๐Ÿ’กย of something to do with no other agenda except to have fun ๐Ÿ˜Š I always liked this old song, even though his sister was the better singer ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽค


Have a great Saturday!

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

I got out in the gardens a little bit yesterday. It was such a beautiful day! Warm-ish and sunny, it strangely felt like a breezy Spring day… The soil is so soft from all the rain & warm temps & the robins and other birds were pulling worms ๐Ÿ›ย out of the ground and singing.

The birds were out in force feasting on seeds, berries & worms ๐Ÿ›

I took this short video from above one of my Waterfalls looking down the stream as it flows away.


โ€œI heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.โ€
โ€œWe are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.โ€

Have a a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful Sunday morning! We are in October now, but this last week has felt like July! I suppose I could fuss about it and say itโ€™s too Hot for Fall, yada, yada… But, Iโ€™m not ๐Ÿ˜Š I prefer to think of it as an extended Summer gift ๐Ÿ’ย Iโ€™m gonna get out today and work up a good Fall sweat & enjoy it! I hope yโ€™all do too ๐Ÿ˜…

A great day to look for that lost salt shaker…

โ€œI cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air.โ€
