Sunday Reflections…

For the first time in years I slept past 8am on Sunday morning. It was good sleep 😴 but… Sleeping in, ain’t what it used to be 😊

Brunch is on!

sausage and onions with fresh made pancakes, whipped butter and warm maple 🍁 syrup, over medium eggs 🍳 and oolong tea ☕️

Today is Super Bowl Sunday! Always a fun day! And a milepost in the seasons for my business! For Carter’s Nursery, Tomorrow is Super Bowl Monday! A day when we start LOTS of seasonal Landscape chores… So I got that goin for me 😊

Question- Who are you pulling for in the big game? For Jo and I, we got Brady’s team – The Buccaneers 🏴‍☠️ 🏈 The biggest reason, besides the fact that Brady is probably the best ever at his position (Quarterback), is that The night that Jo had our son Jacob, was the very night that Brady made his first mark on the NFL winning a snowy game against The Raiders to move forward into the Super Bowl – His 1st. Super Bowl win! Can you say “Tuck Rule”… 😳. She laid there, in labor, and watched the entire game with me! At times of serious pain, she would ask, what’s going on? What’s the score? How’s Brady doing? A football 🏈 fan was born! And, a beautiful, bouncing baby boy to boot! Boom💥 Yes, that’s 6 B’s in a row! Thank you, thank you very much!

No matter the outcome of today’s game though, we will have fun watching it!

Have a great Sunday! And, Go Bucs!🏈💥

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! Sunny ☀️ with a bluebird sky. It’s Groundhog Day & I saw my shadow… You know what that means, yep, I need to loose a few pounds 😮

If ground-hog day was bright and fair,
The beast came forth, but not to stay;
His shadow turned him to his lair,
Where six weeks more, he dormant lay
Secure in subterranean hold—
So wondrous weatherwise was he—
Against six weeks of ice and cold,
Which, very certain, there would be…
~H.L. Fisher, “Popular Superstitions,”

I may have seen my shadow, but old Punxsutawney Phil did not! What does that mean? Well, if you trust the worlds most famous rodent prognosticator, it means Spring is coming early!!! Boom 💥 What have I been saying – Spring IS Coming! 💐🍾🌈

Ok, back in the real 🌎 I have a game to prepare for! My team didn’t make it this year  (❤️ Titans) so I’m rooting for the Chiefs… The hard parts gonna be finding Super Bowl snacks that help slim my shadow 😎

Groundhog Day made me think about MY shadow… I guess it’s Crudité for Super Bowl snacks 😊

Have a great day! Go Chiefs! And here’s to an early Spring!
