Sunday Reflections…

It cooled off a bit over night & it’s noticeable this morning. But the grey sky is supposed to give way later today and we will have some sun  ☀️ Signs of Spring are everywhere! I’m gonna finish my coffee and make breakfast! Then, a nap 😴 & some Football 🏈! Did I mention that I love January 😊

Emerging flowers whisperer Spring is Coming 🌼

“January is the quietest month in the garden…  But just because it looks quiet doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. The soil, open to the sky, absorbs the pure rainfall while microorganisms convert tilled-under fodder into usable nutrients for the next crop of plants. The feasting earthworms tunnel along, aerating the soil and preparing it to welcome the seeds and bare roots to come.”

Have a wonderful Sunday! Spring is Coming!

PS; Go Packers!

Sunday Reflections…

Good morning and Merry Christmas to all! We are in the final countdown to the big day…

The time is flying by! 3,2,1 Boom 💥

This world is wild as an old wives’ tale,
And strange the plain things are,
The earth is enough and the air is enough
For our wonder and our war;
But our rest is as far as the fire-drake swings
And our peace is put in impossible things
Where clashed and thundered unthinkable wings
Round an incredible star.

To an open house in the evening
Home shall men come,
To an older place than Eden
And a taller town than Rome.
To the end of the way of the wandering star,
To the things that cannot be and that are,
To the place where God was homeless
And all men are at home.

~ G.K. Chesterton “The House of Christmas”.

Merry Christmas 🎄 🎅🏻

When we’re talking music, to me there’s nothing more powerful than a man and his guitar 🎸 singing  a meaningful tune. When you add the fact that the man is a true poet, magic can happen… This is my favorite version of this old tune, perfect for this Sunday Morning.

Enjoy your Sunday Morning 🌞
