Yes, it’s Monday. And regardless of how I feel, how tired I am, etc……this is the only chance I have to live this day. So I am writing, and looking out my kitchen window. The sun is very bright. Good thing. Yesterday’s snow is melting, yet glistening. Good thing. I have a warm house and had food for my breakfast, and lots of good Irish tea. Good thing.

Thanks be to God, who puts up with my tired, unmotivated self, and lets me begin to see something good and true in the day. Very good thing.

However you are feeling this morning, be kind to yourself. And I am praying that your day goes as smoothly as it can, that you have good tea at your disposal, and a fair view to look upon. Also, that tonight’s sleep will be better than the last. 🙂 Love, Lisa

Feeling Crabby?

“I’m up….I’m up!”

Some days we just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and feel, well….kind of like this cute little guy.  So if you’re feeling crabby this morning, check out a few moments of a real crab’s day.

"I must still be tired....or sand is in my eyes."

“I must still be tired….or sand is in my eyes.”

"That's it....back to bed, my nice little hole in the ground."

“That’s it….back to bed, my nice little hole in the ground.”

Thanks to the obliging Outer Banks crab who kindly posed for these photographs.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Sheep Up and Rarin’ To Go:  It’s a bright, grand day…let’s go!  Fields and fields of green are waiting for us!  🙂

Sheep Leave Me Alone:  It’s Monday, I’m knackered, I tell ya.

No matter which sheep you feel like this morning, I pray the very best for your day.  Slainte, Lisa
