Georges Delerue Interlude Theme.mp3

Flowers grow back, even when
stepped on, so will I ....

T-pot on, feet up ...
And this one used as a flower vase/pot.
Very clever, love it.

One who sleeps under a quilt,
is comforted by love.

If you ate today, 
thank a farmer.

Looks like he is having fun!

Popcorn time!

Wow, now, will someone tell me where January went?!
As usual time has not waited on anyone. So, make the

most of each day, get up, get going and take in the

hours that seem to fly by. Enjoy this last day of

January, be sure to join me tomorrow as I will

welcome in February, and on we go .....

Life is all about balance. You don't always
need to be getting stuff done. Sometimes
it's perfectly okay, and absolutely necessary,
to shut down, kick back and do nothing.
~ Lori Deschene

"IF" is a poem by British Nobel laureate Rudy
Kipling, written in 1895 and first published in 
Rewards and Fairies, 1910. It is a tribute to
Leander Starr Jameson. The poem is written 
in the form of paternal advice to the poet's son, John.

IF you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools: 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings 
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

~ Rudy Kipling

Love these old Western buildings.

I think this is the coolest thing!!

And your cuteness for today, 
Mom looks proud.

Making my mouth water. 
Honey - so good for you.

Keep our troops in prayer ....
