“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”

~ John Lubbock

Enjoy this Summer Day!

Im going to sit outside and watch the Sun go down tonight! Tomorrow starts the shortening of days… Leading us towards the Autumnal Equinox, aka: Fall!

Sunday Reflections…

I’ve been up since early… Drinking coffee and thinking 🤔 Reflecting. Yesterday was a fun, long, laidback day. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in grand fashion… At the river 😊 Floating, fishing, photography – Fun. The only thing I can complain about is we ran out of hours in the day, and the mosquitoes were out in force last night🦟

Yesterday was a busy, wonderful day! A beautiful sunrise, fun on the river, great food, a beautiful sunset on the water, live music at the marina & a gorgeous Full moon 🌕

We want to thank everyone who called, messaged and texted to wish us a Happy Anniversary! ❤️ It was a fun, laid back, perfect day.

“Mosquito is out,
it’s the end of the day;
she’s humming and hunting
her evening away.
Who knows why such hunger
arrives on such wings
at sundown? I guess
it’s the nature of things.”

~ N. M. Boedecker

Sunday Reflections…

Next weekend is Memorial Day weekend… 😳 Yes, it’s almost Summer! I’m not fussing now, I Love Summer!… But, Spring went by so fast 💨 I’m gonna try to slow it down a little and enjoy at least a little bit of Summer.

What do YOU enjoy about Summer? For me it’s the Garden and the River!
Sunsets from the boat 🌅
Breakfast at the Marina or diner is big on my Summer list as well.

Summer “Unofficially” begins next weekend!

Are you ready?

“Morning’s soft air, touching everything with such care,
Caresses a young face in a quiet, secluded place.
Smile planted strong, heart beating on.
Only one thing is on her mind, and that is summertime.

A joy reckless and wild, 
that’s been in the heart of every child, 
now set within her, 
for there is no cure.
Her spirit set free, soars higher than the trees.

The books that weighed her down, 
now thrown on the ground.
The rivers cleansed from winter, 
are now heated for splendor.
The happiness of knowing
no bedtimes are set, 
and no schedules to be met.
The sun now beating within her veins 
washes away all her pains.

Then without a sound, 
the sun starts to sink down.
so she heads inside, 
satisfied, 
until the next time.

But her spirit is just too wild and decides to wait a while,
so it stays outside and watches the sun, 
waiting for what is to come.

The birds fall asleep, the peepers start to peep,
and slowly the sunbeams caressing the mountains,
turn them into splendorous fountains.”

~ Abbey Silent (A Time Of Freedom).

Sunday Reflections…

Taking the time to smell the roses 🌹 and to watch the sunrises and sunsets is so important! It’s Labor Day weekend… The Summer seasons last big hurrah! Time to enter Fall… Does it seem like we should be here already? Wow! Summer has passed by like a sunset… 

Believe it or not, my dog loves watching the sunset with us. Maybe it’s because we are watching and paying attention to the setting sun ☀️ but he sure seems to love  it too ❤️

“It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.” — A.J. Lawless

Have a great Sunday!!

Sunday Reflections…

Sipping coffee looking at the water, trying to enjoy every moment of Summertime. It’s here & its gone… This is one of my favorite old Summer songs by one of the best flat top pickers that ever picked up a guitar 🎸 

Summertime and the living’ is easy…



“Summertime
And the living is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high

Oh, your daddy’s rich
And your mama’s good lookin’
So hush little baby now
don’t you cry

One of these mornin’s
You’re gonna rise up singin’
Then you’ll spread your wings
And take to the sky

But til that mornin’
Ain’t nothin’ can harm you
With your daddy
And your mammy
standin’ by.”

   ~ George Gershwin & Dubose Heyward

Enjoy your Summer Sunday 🌞
