BEAUTY, MUSIC & LAUGHTER - Don't you just love a good drive on a beautiful day? Isn't it even better when you have the company of a good friend or a loved one? Now, how about if your destination is to see more people that make you happy & you love, and add Nickleback to it, along with a cool breeze (this is good for my hair - low humidty - a rare commidity in Florida, ya'll!). Well, now you have my Friday morning.
HOME SWEET HOME - My son & I took off to go see my Mom & Dad, who actually live in the same town as us for the first time in 9 years! It was the first cool, autumn morning of our season here in Florida. The skies were beautiful, the pine trees were consistently bright, dark green. It was just a wonderful, free and easy drive through the country back-roads. We played the CD way too loud, just like I like it. It was great!
BEAUTY AT HOME - The visit was good. They have made their new home beautiful in so many ways, in such a short time. I admire their style, teamwork and thrift. We went home in time for lunch and to get school work done, and much more besides.
GIVING THANKS -On days like today I just can't help but bubble with gratitude for the good life we are allowed to have. Don't get me wrong, there are challenges on every corner. But, not without blessings galore! Today I was cognizant that we need to seek out beauty, through whatever means we experience it; nature, music, wood working, mechanics, knitting, baking, a good book, the possiblities are endless. We need beauty to heal us from the threatening tide of everyday hum-drum stress, and too little time with way too much to do.
Have a beautiful weekend, ya'll!
