My dad used to tell us,
"When your feet hit the floor in the mornings,
you have a choice about what kind of mood you can be in....
good or bad.
I want to feel good, so I choose good over bad
You may as well put a smile on your face,
and savor each day,
enjoying every moment.
I was out early this morning,
listening to the birdsong.
Sounds like they got up in a good mood! :)
My two little 'air' plants I placed on an old log
are doing good. I did lose one, as I had three to begin with.
I also have a baby staghorn fern, but it's kind of wimpy.
Hopefully it will take hold too and I will get a photo of it one day.
I guess my garden isn't doing too bad for the dog days of summer,
and in the middle of a drought.
We sit out in the evenings on our yard swing,
listening to the cicadas sing their song.
Paying attention to each moment is part of my day.
I guess it's really past the 'dog days of summer'
as the dictionary says that dog days are....
the sultry part of the summer, supposed to occur during the period that Sirius, the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun: now often reckoned from July 3 to August 11.
But it still feels like it around here.
Fall is just around the corner,
and I don't know about you,
but I'm ready for it.
Savor the Day!
