Yes! We have Hope!

Just a quick piece of advice from my viewpoint. Stop watching the news! The 24 hour news cycle will drag you down and steal your hope! 

Instead, do something you don’t normally get to do while at home.. Do a puzzle! Play a board game ♟ Read a book 📚 Draw or paint 🎨 or go outside on the porch and listen to the birds sing 🐦 

The birds are out in force feasting on seeds, berries & worms 🐛 It’s Springtime in Tennessee!

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
 
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
 
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

 ~ Emily Dickinson 

Stay positive and keep your hope. This will be over sooner than later ❤️

Staycations
stay·ca·tion • /ˌstāˈkāSHn/ • noun  INFORMAL
noun: staycation; plural noun: staycations; noun: stay-cation; plural noun: stay-cations
– A vacation spent in ones home rather than abroad.
 
A “Stay at home Vacation”? Sound familiar? 
Well, you can’t go to Disney World right now, or out to eat or even to a movie! So, the way you look at it is ALL up to you… Lockdown or time off. Shelter at home, or a “Staycation”!  

If you could take the family to Disney for the week, do you know what the average cost would be? Depending on how much discounting and coupons and deals you work out, expect to spend as much as $10,000.00! You keep the memories and the pictures of course. 

– That my friends is another reason more and more people are Staycationing! They are putting in Water Gardens, swimming pools, patios, grilling stations, fire pits 🔥and creating Outdoor Living Space right in the comfort of their own backyard! And why not!? You can access and enjoy these areas day and night! They add to your daily enjoyment AND to your property value! 

My personal Outdoor Living Area at night. The Pond is the centerpiece, surrounded by gardens both edible and ornamental with sitting and lounging areas, a Grilling station and a nice fire pit. I’m down for a “Staycation”! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I am doing remote designs during this critical period of social distancing. We can discuss ideas on the phone or through email. You can send me pictures of your backyard areas and I can develop ideas and work up sketch’s that you can ‘Ponder’ 😊 For the future. Hopefully the not to distant future 😎 

Thanks for reading and watching! Stay safe! And enjoy your Staycation.
