Sunday Reflections…

Why do I get up earlier than any other day on my 1 day off… ? My eyes 👀 pop open on Sunday morning (usually around 4:30’ish) & I’m wide awake! BUT, I’ve already done all my chores and I’ve got time to do a little pickin before everyone else is up – So I got that goin for me 😊

  •  Watering ✅
  • Feeding my Koi ✅ 
  • Took out trash ✅
  • Chill on swing and do some picking 💥
  • Dont forget to publish your blog ✅

After the chores and things are done ✅ and before breakfast 🍳 I found some time to do a little picking. It’s gonna rain 🌧 so I got that goin for me too 😊

There is some rain coming, I can smell it in the air. I’m gonna enjoy that as well! 

“Whenever it rains, and its earthy scent — the petrichor — hits my senses, memories come flashing and I go back in time.”
  ~ Shon Mehta

 

Y’all have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

A cool, light rain was falling this morning so I grabbed a hot cup of coffee and set outside for a little while. Time always goes by pretty quick for me, but it seems like lately, It literally Flies by! It seems I’ve blinked my eyes and were over half way through April! I’m not complaining, I just want to make sure that I am spending it wisely! Not wasting it! Because I know you can never get it back…  
I guess I’m trying to savor it, like this hot coffee on a cold morning. 

“Time is passing : not leaden stepping
But sprinting on winged feet,
Quick silver slipping by.”
 ~ Richard L. Ratliff

Time flies by us… We have to learn to savor every moment.


Have a great Sunday morning!

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!

Sunday Reflections…

Stormy morning on the river. It limits what you can do, but it’s so nice in another way… The sound of the rain & thunder and the smell of the fresh air is wonderful! I’m gonna take what the good lord gives me and be thankful 😊

A quiet, rainy morning on the river is a magical thing 😊

“The river and the garden have been the foundations of my economy here. Of the two I have liked the river best. It is wonderful to have the duty of being on the river the first and last thing every day. I have loved it even in the rain. Sometimes I have loved it most in the rain.“

  ~ Wendell Berry

 

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

Yesterday was so nice. The day began and ended around our water garden. The weather was almost perfect! Rain is forecast for today, but a garden needs rain to thrive… I’m thinking a nice Sunday nap may be in order 😊

“If it’s drama that you sigh for, plant a garden and you’ll get it. You will know the thrill of battle fighting foes that will beset it. If you long for entertainment and for pageantry most glowing, plant a garden and this summer spend your time with green things growing.”

   ~ Edward A. Guest

My Garden is my refuge.

Enjoy your Sunday 😊

Sunday Reflections…

Cool, rainy, stormy night. More of the same today… Wonderful time to catch up on some rest! April showers bring, you know what 🌺🌼🌻😊 

I helped my Grandad transplant this azalea from an old home place over 30 years ago. Still blooms so beautifully in the Spring! It brightens a cloudy morning…

 

April Rain

The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shaw and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again.

The April sun, the April sun,
Glints through the rain in fitful splendour,
And in grey shaw and woodland dun
The little leaves spring forth and tender
Their infant hands, yet weak and slender,
For warmth towards the April sun,
One after one.

And between shower and shine hath birth
The rainbow’s evanescent glory;
Heaven’s light that breaks on mists of earth!
Frail symbol of our human story,
It flowers through showers where, looming hoary,
The rain-clouds flash with April mirth,
Like Life on earth.

    ~ Mathilde Blind

 

Peace,

Sunday Reflections…

All this warm weather this last week followed by this rain last night and today is going to make all these emerging plants and trees just explode with growth. I LOVE Spring 😊 Enjoy a rainy Sunday with family and friends.

Sometimes a rainy day is a sweet thing 😊

“And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”
     ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

 

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

Rainy Sunday morning. My wife rolled over and said “let’s just sleep in”… Perfect 👌🏻 Enjoy your Sunday 😊

Sometime a rainy morning is a good thing 😊

There will come soft rain and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

   ~ Sara Teasdale
