YODO…
Snoopy has a great point. We should enjoy each day on its on merits. Instead of waiting on a vacation or a destination, we should find happiness in each Sunrise and sunset 🌅

That’s my new motto… Instead of YOLO (You only live once) Its YODO (You Only Die Once)!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Sunday Reflections…

Sunday Morning Breakfast 🥞 🍳 🥚 It’s an institution at our house 😊 I am the short order cook taking orders… And that’s fine with me ❤️

It’s important to start the day with a smile 😊

Fried eggs, pancakes 🥞, omelettes, scrambled eggs, Maple syrup, blueberry syrup with whipped cream, you name it, I’ll fix it 😎

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.

Have a Blessed Day 🙏🏻

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.”

Y’all have a great Sunday!

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!
