ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, JULY 22ND, 2015
63 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 6:14 am
Sunset: 8:57 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Hammock Day. Summerr is in full swing. It's time to slow down and to relax. During the Dog Days of summer, July 3 though August 11th, there is no better place to slow down and relax, than on a hammock.
Hammock Day exists to enjoy summer as it should be enjoyed. People celebrate Hammock Day by spending as much time relaxing on it as possible. Getting out of your hammock to get a snack, or your favorite summer beverage is okay. But, it is not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
I don’t have a hammock, but relaxing is something I do know how to do in the heat we’ve been having. It doesn’t take much of doing anything outside when it’s hot to wipe me out. Thankfully I do have air conditioning in my house so I do get a few things done.
I know some folks that don’t let the heat bother them at all and get lots done while the sun shines. Some even have to work outside in the heat and no matter what the weather is, have a job to do. I give them lots of credit, but I’m all about relaxing these lazy hazy days of summer. What doesn’t get done, will wait for a cooler day.
I do love the sunshine and am not complaining, just enjoying being lazy. The winter winds will blow our way again and I need to remember these days.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
2967. for days to rest and relax
2968. for those who work in the heat
2969. for sunshine, we all need it
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
