Stopping to Smell the Flowers

Aug 15, 2012

For the next 10 days I am going to do my best to unwind. Those of you who know me, know I’m wound up tighter than an 8 day clock. Well, for the next 10 days, I’m deter­mined to unwind and not think of my “To-Do List” that is wait­ing for me when I get home. Although, just typ­ing the words “To-Do List” makes my inner 8 day clock wind up. Yikes! Any­way, back to the unwind­ing… Yes­ter­day, I start­ed my day look­ing at this view. As my niece Made­lyn calls these days… “It was a Blue­bird Kin­da Day”. There were hard­ly a cloud in the sky and it was blue, blue, blue.

Yes­ter­day, mom, dad and I drove around and did a lit­tle antiquing. I found some real­ly awe­some things for class­es and can­not wait to show you… super excit­ed! While in down­town Buck­han­non we saw so many beau­ti­ful flower beds, flower box­es, hang­ing bas­kets and pot­ted plants. At every turn we saw some­thing bloom­ing. I so miss see­ing flow­ers like these in Texas. The sum­mer heat just does not allow them to bloom or sur­vive (if in my yard) as they do here.

My cous­in’s yard is filled with beau­ti­ful flow­ers too… each lit­tle spot of their yard has some­thing bloom­ing and they are all old fash­ioned type flow­ers… my favorite.

I end­ed the day wait­ing for the deer and turkey to come eat and they did not dis­ap­point… it’s nice to see wildlife right in the back­yard.

I’m not sure what adven­tures are on the sched­ule for today, but I’ll share them with you all tomor­row. Today, my word for the day is “Relax”. We’ll see how well it goes.
