Little Things

Love this, isn't it the truth? I had Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles who "molded me," I had teachers (Like Mrs. Hayes) who made me realize I could do anything if I put my mind to it and I've had friends who didn't give up on me because I never seem to have time for them.

I don't know about you, but my life is a little crazy. Not "Mommy-worked-all-day-and-now-I-have-to-cook-dinner-and-do-3-loads-of-wash-crazy," but busy enough that I am worn out at the end of the day.

Maybe I should get a day timer and schedule my to do list, to make me realize I HAVE a list. I store my list up here in my head, and if I get to it I get to it. If I don't, and I don't a lot anymore...well then, there's always tomorrow!

On my list this week are two parent's doctors appointments, getting the flowers on the decks and patios into the garage before frost gets them, cleaning the windows inside and out, giving the dog a bath, washing and ironing, cooking, cleaning, going to Ulta...I have to go there, I have a coupon for free lotion! 


  1. That is so true, people don't forget how you make them feel. I like that. Thanks for sharing...

  2. My husband has a couple of projects going and I plan to help him today along with what I have to do.

    I don't worry if I cant complete my list anymore because after all "Tomorrow is another Day". Enjoy!

  3. I have always thought ..if we can help two people in our life become kind and caring adults then we have done a good thing. Every morning I read your little blip on gratitude to start my day...and I am always grateful for having the day to do pretty much what I want even though it is busy at times...

  4. I love that quote--I've not seen it in awhile and it's a good reminder...Also a reminder that I need to get dog food today--I hope I don't forget! :-))) Enjoy your day and THANKS for the thoughts!

  5. What a beautiful quote to start this beautiful day! Thankyou!! It reminds me of a 91 year young lady on Hospice that I visit at the nursing home. She told me "it's all about LOVE." Boy she's got that nailed doesn't she?!
    Agape love my new Arkyfriend!

  6. Welcome to my small group of followers, Joycee.

    My husband and I are taking a reprieve from posting for the next couple of weeks, so please don't think I've left the country! I am leaving town Sunday to take care of my new granddaughter for a week. It will be a precious time for me for sure.

    Thanks again for becoming a follower. I hope to begin posting again next month.

  7. Thanks for stopping by today. Your blog is beautiful and I love the header.
    Hope next week is a little calmer for you!

  8. Great quote and oh so very true :-)


  9. I have always loved that quote, Joycee! It is jsut wonderful and oh, so true!

    Thank you so much for dropping by my blog tonight. I have been a periodic foodie poster since Michael first started her blog, but I haven't posted in a bit because my husband had surgery and a long recuperation. He's doing great now! Yea! :-)

    Generally the recipes I post are something silly or something like takeout. I have also tortured her readers with my pea soup in a can and other things and tempted them with Publix Chocolate Ganache Bon Bon cakes, but I actually have a wonderful recipe tonight for a fab-u-lous coconut cake that is out of this world. Just had to share.

    But mainly, I like to visit all of the food posters and read their recipes. I am from a family of exceptional cooks (even a chef), but I crawled under the table when they handed out that skill. ;-)

    It's so nice to meet you, and what a lovely respite it is to come here and visit. Love that music. Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead...


    Sheila :-)
