I've Had a Great Day!!

Who would have thought that a dental appointment would turn out to be the beginning of a great day! He was a new dentist who was going to replace a filling and I had no idea what to expect! To my amazement, it turned out that his hobby was genealogy! I listened to all kinds of stories as he worked on my tooth and then exchanged stories when I was able to talk lol!

At the moment, I am home, still half frozen, but quite able to sip icy cold apple cider (the hard stuff lol) and watching a movie! I think that we are going to call out for dinner... maybe a pizza because hubby and I both have a craving for a deep dish lol. The perfect end to a perfect day!!

I hope that you are having as great a day!!

Decisions... The Good Bad and the Ugly

Life is just a series of trying to make up your mind.
Timothy fuller

So, why are there so many difficult decisions to make? Yeah, I'm doing a bit of whining!! Maybe by the end of the summer, I will feel better about the decision that I make!! Decisions can be sooooo hard!

How Enthusiastic Are You Feeling Today??

Found a great quote this morning because I'm not feeling all that enthusiastic at the moment.

"What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog!"
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Guess that it is time to give my enthusiasm a bit of of push in the right direction... Lets just say that I had a hard weekend. My mom lives 5 hours each way! I'm just too tired to be enthusiastic but that's no excuse

Julia Child Says That I Can Have More Peanut Brittle!!

"It's fun to get together and have something good to eat at least once a day. That's what human life is all about-enjoying things."
Julia Child

I think that I love this woman, but every once in a while, she gets me into trouble! At the moment, I have a container of peanut brittle sitting under my desk and it's calling my name yet again!  She does say... at least once a day lol... that means I can have more as long as they are tiny pieces... right??

Just Sitting Under a Tree

 When one devotes oneself to meditation, mental burdens, unnecessary worries and wandering thoughts, drop off one by one; life seems to run smoothly and pleasantly.
Nyogen Senzaki

Today, as I was doing up the dishes, I saw a man stop, get off of his bike and go and sit under the shade of a tree. I'm not sure what he was doing, but he seemed to be enjoying himself. I was thinking that it would be a great place to meditate, other than the fact that the tree was right next to  parking lot and a bank. Now if you could find a way to blur out the noise... it would indeed be a perfect place just to close your eyes and just drift!
