Thoughts for a Monday Morning......

Song - You Can't Always Get What You Want by The Rolling Stones

Because of the drought, we have decided to let our big side lawn die.....difficult decision for me because I get so much enjoyment from the garden.  But our boys are all grown.  No more baseball practice on the side lawn, croquet, badminton, golf, wrestling, volleyball and only an occasional game of horseshoes and you don't need grass for that!

I sit on the bench under a large Oak tree and watch it slowly turn brown.

But the positive side is that we will continue to keep the flowers, shrubs and trees alive.

Golden Celebration - Mr. B's favorite!

There is so much to be thankful for!

Mika can cool off on those really hot days!

"Between stimulus and response, there is space.  In that space is our power to choose our response.  In our response lies our growth and our freedom." - Viktor E. Frankl

  1. What a sacrifice, but I congratulate you for doing the right thing! That was a beautiful lawn and maybe we'll get rain again some day...
