Monday Musings

What a wonderful string of Indian Summer days we have had here in Upstate NY. The weather has been glorious and I have enjoyed every minute of every beautiful day.

I had intended to write an essay about Cousins, which I fully intend to do sometime soon. However, the day has gotten away from me. While cleaning my desk drawer this afternoon, I ran across this little gem and thought you, my bloggy friends, might enjoy it.

Inspirational Thoughts
  • Try everything once.
  • Invent a holiday.
  • Learn three jokes that get laughs every time.
  • Be a mentor.
  • Wear only comfortable shoes.
  • Write a sonnet.
  • Start a reading group. (Or join one)
  • Store snowballs in the freezer and pull them out for a summer party.
  • Enjoy fresh tomatoes in December.
  • Do nothing all day and feel no guilt.
  • Wake up.
  • Dance all night.
  • Take the road less traveled.

Beauty seen is never lost.

God's colors are all fast.

I can remember putting snowballs in the freezer as a kid. Wouldn't dream of it now, though.

We had a week of fabulous weather last week, it has turned now to the bleak November days that I hate.

Love your list. We really should do some of those things, I especially like the Do nothing all day and feel no guilt. I feel like I should be doing 'something' all the time. I think I will take a day this winter and just do nothing and watch the snow come down, maybe watch a good movie on the Hallmark channel with a bowl of popcorn WITH some butter! Doesn't that sound like a good day?!
