Last night we had a
Pumpkin Carving
When Imagination rules
fun is bound to be had.

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.

As the sun paints its colors across the morning sky, many slumber and wonder where all the beauty has gone.
Those precious few who greet the day know that the beauty never left.

Bless Susan's Existence Day!

Happy Birthday !
I am so very blessed to have you as
a friend and co-conspirator.
I Love you
Miss Susan!

A good friend is a connection to life
- a tie to the past,
a road to the future,
the key to sanity
in a totally insane world.

As It Should Be

Sanity may be madness
but the maddest of all
is to see life as it is and
not as it should be.

Which one are you?

A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; 
a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; 
an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them.

National Chocolate Cupcake Day!

Yesterday was
National Chocolate Cupcake Day!
I Love finding a reason to Celebrate the day.
We as people seem to live so much for the big
moments of life that sometimes I think
we forget to celebrate the small things.
I have learned to appreciate the small moments
so much more and I find myself a much
happier person for it!
So find something small to Celebrate Today!

In small proportions we just beauties see,
And in short measures life may perfect be.
~Ben Jonson~

Still Celebrating

I realized it has been a while since I had shared
one of our Celebration Days.
So here you are!
On October 13th we celebrated
National Yorkshire Pudding day.
If any of you have never tried this delectable yumminess
you can find the recipe here .
These little bad boys remind me of holidays with
my Grandpa.
Food has a way of bringing all the good, sad, and best memories right to your heart
in a way not much else can.

Good food is wise medicine.

The beauty of her soul shines through her eyes
and it is haunting.

Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera
than they ever did in the cross hairs of a gun sight.
And after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims
are still around for others to enjoy.
I have developed a deep respect for animals.
I consider them fellow living creatures with certain rights
that should not be violated any more than those of humans.
~Jimmy Stewart

People make me sick.

Know what you want to do,
hold the thought firmly,
and do every day what should be done,
and every sunset will see you that much nearer to your goal.

Jazz Hands

I had a proud Mom moment yesterday.
My near teen son decided to dance.
Now that alone is worth applause,
however what makes it a super happy Mom moment
was the fact he did it at the 50 yard line in front of a
crowd of people at a Track Meet.
I love that he is so comfortable with who he is
that he can Jazz hands for the World!
Never lose that my Son,
Never lose that.

We're fools whether we dance or not,
so we might as well dance.

So Proud!

Graduation is only a concept.
In real life every day you graduate.
Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life.
If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.

Miss Susan
I am so very Proud of You!

The ideals which have lighted my way,

have given me new courage to face life cheerfully,
have been
