Today should be part 3 of a the pantry project - but honestly my brain and my body are fried!
I am beyond tired. Summer yard work has taken it's hold on me this week.
I have been working on finishing the garden and getting the yard mowed and trimmed and cutting bushes and.........................................such is life!
It is going to get hotter this weekend and the humidity is supposed to be back - so now is the time!
So I thought I would share a bit of humor with you today. At least I thought it was funny. I was out mowing the front lawn this morning and a car came down the road. It stopped in front of the house. Now normally I would not stop, as you just can't be too careful nowadays!
There was a sweet looking white haired lady in the car, so I stopped the mower.
She rolled her window down, and I am thinking she probably needs directions or something. She says "Honey, it just warms my heart to see you young kids taking and interest in your yards and homes. You have everything so pretty."
OK, the funny part - "you young kids"!!!!!!!
I walked over to the car, and thanked her . I told her it means a lot that others find it pretty - but I wasn't a kid any more!!! She says "You sure are, just look at you." She says "I am 72, I should know a kid when I see one". Again I thanked her, and told her my age - and she just stared at me. Laughingly, I told her my brother and my sister were older than her. She was amazed.
"Well" she says "you look like a kid and your yard is lovely". How sweet.
I smiled and chuckled to myself the rest of the morning.
I guess it is all about perspective - maybe that is why I call people in their 40's kids! LOL
All I know is it sure made my day. Me standing there in my old grubby t-shirt and jeans, sweating like crazy, and all red faced.
I guess I was 'rocking' that 70's workout headband I had on!!!!!!! LOL
So all you KIDS take it easy today and don't work too hard. Sit back and remember, what you see and feel may be a blessing to someone else. They MAY be glad to have your worst day.
We just never know how we affect the world.
BLESSINGS FOR A WONDERFUL DAY!
