Happy Valentine’s Day

Did you remember Valentine’s Day? I was fortunate to have breakfast with my folks this morning. I couldn’t ask for anything more than that on this beautiful sunny day.

I thought I would share a few of the numerous old postcards I have collected over the years.

I love collecting vintage postcards.

 

Many people would rather find blank cards. Not me, I want old postcards with handwritten notes on the back. The writing allows me to get a glimpse of the personal history of the sender.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.

Until next time….peace

 

Happy Mother’s Day!

Just want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day! Whether you are a mom, step-mom, grandma, aunt, dad playing double duty, foster mom, or a mom to four-legged babies, this day is for you!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Take care!

Until next time…peace

 

Festival of Sleep Day

Today, January 3, 2017, is known as Festival of Sleep Day. Dedicating an entire day to sleep sounds incredibly relaxing. In fact, I think my cats have been practicing for this unofficial holiday for some time. Mid-Michigan is dreary today. I woke up to dense fog, followed by rain and cold. My cats (and dogs) did not want any part of being outdoors for a long period of time. Instead, they all are curled up around the warm fire enjoying a lazy afternoon.

As for me, my sleep patterns vary. I love to stay up late in the early morning hours. I find the night time silence inspiring. What can I say, 3 a.m. and I are old friends. At least on this Festival of Sleep Day, I can sneak in afternoon nap without a twinge of guilt. I will simply blame the quick snooze on research for my blog, right?

Happy Sleeping!

Until next time…peace

Happy 2nd Day of the New Year!

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes,

then you are making new things, trying new things,

learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.

Neil Gaiman

Well, Happy 2nd Day of 2017! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

My days were filled with family, friends and a lot of food. I really couldn’t ask for anything more.

Until next time…peace

Happy Thanksgiving

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.

If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.

Oprah Winfrey

For those who are celebrating today….

Happy Thanksgiving. May your day be filled with peace,

love and an overflowing of blessings as you spend time with your family and friends.

Have a wonderful day!

Until next time…peace
