Hello and Happy Saturday. It is rainy and cool here in East Tennessee today. I am always reminded when I complain about the weather something my daddy said many years ago. He had lung cancer and he knew he was dying. About a month before he passed away my mom was looking out the window and she said “ I am so tired of these rainy days I just hate them” my dad got a longing look on his face and said “ I love every day.” So whenever I think about the weather and want to complain I try to remember just how fortunate I am to be here. Every Day.
Anyway enough of that. I promised you some pictures of our table that we decorated on Thursday night for the Chamber of Commerce Banquet. Our table won Third place!!! We did a spring gardening theme. There were so many beautiful tables. A lot of money was raised
A much needed haircut yesterday.
The first picture was taken about 3 weeks ago when I was in St. Louis. Some bad lighting but you can see how long my hair was. I really needed a cut it had been quite a while. I have been working on my low carb eating and have lost a few pounds it amazes me how much better I feel letting go of the carbs. I am scheduled to see my doctor on Monday so I will be able to get an idea of how much I have lost this month.
I was reading one of my favorite blogs the other day and I came across something that really made me think. Why not treat every day like the weeked? (or whatever days you have off from work) A lot of time I think we are rushing to our days off. And if you’re like me a lot of my days off are used to catch up on cleaning house, grocery shopping, doing laundry oh my!!! Why not do a little something special after your work days? You could have a special meal, a nice glass of wine, a massage or facial or as someone told me yesterday, just let your hair down. Do something good for you. Take care of yourself. Be good to you. You know the old saying if you don’t love you first no one can. Do something for you and share it with me. I would love to hear it.
Have a wonderful day!!!
