Wisdom and My Day

I friend of mine posted this on FaceBook and I just had to reprint, they are such amazing words to reflect on:

When I woke up this morning I asked myself, "what is life about?I found the answer in my room.The fan said, "Be cool."The roof said "Aim high. The window said, "See the world." The clock said, "Every minute is precious. The mirror said, "Reflect before you act." The calendar said " Be up to date."The door said, "Push hard for your goals."The floor said, "Kneel down and pray"
It's been a great morning.  I got some cleaning done and wheat bread is on it's second rise.  Tuna fish made for lunches for the rest of the week.  I get a night off from cooking dinner, my wonderful daughter is making BBQ and having us over tonight!  Yummo can't wait.
 Last night we had a visitor to our feeder.  Princess our Doe brought her little fawn to meet us and feed.  This is the 3rd generation of deer to our yard.  We are so excited to have this new addition.
 Well I am off to bake my bread and then I think I may work on a stitching project.  Tomorrow I am going to start some salt dough bowl fillers.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Many hugs and blessings

Picture's of our home and gardens

I thought I would post a few pictures to let everyone see what I am talking about with our back yard.  Also included are some garden pics and some of the front of our house.

Day Dreaming

I love Sunday's when it's a little rainy and Jeff and I don't have a lot going on.  We call these days "stay-cations".  Today was such a day.  Jeff played some video games and I did a little reading (haven't done that since last year in OBX).
We had a quick grilled ham and cheese for lunch and then I decided to wander around the internet and some other blogs and look at some garden pics.  Damn I really shouldn't have done that.  I look out the kitchen window at our back hill and dream of flat lush land with a few raised bed veggie gardens and beautiful flower and herb beds.  All tied into our pond and deer feeder.  Maybe an occasional wicker chair to relax in and brick, stone or wood paths to wonder around and enjoy the animals.  Of course I am knocked back to reality hearing my wonderful husband killing zombies in Left 4 Dead!  I look out again and face the fact that our back hill will never be anything more then a water run off and dirt.  :-(  A country girl living in the city can dream can't she?
