Ghost Town…

Social Distancing is apparently working now. I went to pick up a couple of things for family (curbside and click list only)… WOW! It’s like a ghost town out there. 

This is a Saturday at 11am! About 8 cars in this 200 acre parking lot! WOW!

Almost no cars on the road, except for big trucks! I guess the silver lining is that the stores will be able to get restocked now… 

Almost NO traffic! There are a few out on bikes or walking. Social Distancing is being taken seriously…

Please pray for the country! For all the folks that can’t work! And especially for all the people who have fallen ill to this terrible virus! 

We will get through this! Lets stay vigilant through this fight for our families and for each other! 

God Bless America!

Sunday Reflections…

Beautiful morning! 🌞 We all got up together this morning and watched Sunday Morning together & I fixed breakfast. Nothing new, I always fix breakfast on Sunday Morning 😊 But this morning I took separate orders… Be careful what you ask for 😂

Homemade blueberry syrup and whipped cream for one (who couldn’t wait for the picture😃). #2 Eggs over easy on the side with a short stack – butter and real maple syrup. And finally, cheese grits with 2 egss over medium… That was me 😎

As you see, everyone ordered something different… No problem! It’s just nice to be able to fix what the ones you love really want!

Have a great Sunday Morning! 

Peace 🌱

Things Happen For A Reason | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I would normally be starting fires 🔥 about now. 1st a bonfire in the fire pit, then a load of lump charcoal for the egg… All the guys would be prepping & getting ready for the crowds to come (Hundreds of people)… The petting zoo would be setting up soon for all the kids & my wife would be hanging a big custom Piñata. 
Then, I move to the kitchen and start chopping onions 🧅 & Peppers 🌶- A LOT of both! Then prepping/cutting up sausages and chicken. If this sounds like a party, you would be correct! This was to be the day of our Annual Spring Fest…  

I’m missing the family’s that come for the Spring Fest today… All the kids playing and petting the animals…

Instead of hosting a party, the whole country is shut down. My mom told me earlier, “things happen for a reason”…. And I know she’s right! Instead of focusing on what we don’t get, or have, We ALL must count our BLESSINGS! 🙏🏻 And they are many! 🙏🏻

“You get what you focus on”… Old saying for a reason! Right now is a time to be with family and to count your blessings!
Gods Blessings to YOU 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

I’m going to spend time with my family! I’m still gonna fire up the grill 🔥 I’m still going to get outside on this beautiful day! And believe me, when this virus quarantine is over -We will ALL get together for a BIG celebration 🎉 💥

In the meantime, enjoy this time off. And tell the ones in your life that you love ❤️ them! At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about anyway 😊

Stay safe! 

Love ❤️ & Peace ✌🏻 to ALL!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

We don’t get a lot of snow ❄️ so when my son came in hollering “it’s snowing out there” the other night, I quickly slipped on my shoes and stepped out on the front porch  to see. It was windy & the light that shines on our flag caught my eye.

It was so beautiful watching the flag and the snow blowing in the wind in the light 🌬 I didn’t even notice how cold it was for whole minute or two 😊

The Flag blowing in the wind with the late night snow was almost hypnotic. God Bless America!

This is my offering for my Monday Morning Moment Of Zen. Have a Great Day!

Sorry, We Are Closed For The Holiday Weekend

I’ll keep it short today. We wish you all a wonderful weekend of joy as we enter the Christmas season! We will open up Monday morning for normal business hours.

Have a wonderful weekend!

It might seem strange to some to close on the busiest shopping weekend of the year, but it makes perfect sense to us. We hope you enjoy this time with family and friends! The Christmas season is underway. Blink and you’ll miss it 😊

Have a great weekend! See ya Monday…
