Spare Buttons:  If you're always misplacing one earring or its back,
 take a moment to pair them through the holes of an old button.
Bonus: They'll look cute (and be easier to find) in your jewelry box.

Today's quotes I am sure you may have read or heard
before, but ones I feel need to resurface from time to time.

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
~ William W Purkey

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
~ Oscar Wilde

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Enjoy Life!

It’s summertime—time to sit out on the porch and rock for a while. Rocking soothes the

soul, comforts aching bones, and sets our thoughts adrift.

Ben Franklin extolled the merits of the rocking chair in the 1780s. By the early 19th

century, Americans were making many types of rockers. Several U.S. presidents made

history with their rocking chairs: Abraham Lincoln was assassinated while he sat in a

rocking chair, William McKinley planned his presidential campaign from his porch

rocker, and John F. Kennedy brought the rocking chair to the Oval Office.

A porch with a rocker or two is a friendly and welcoming place. But more than that, a

rocking chair invites us to slow down, relax, and enjoy life. Rock on!

The Old Farmer’s Almanac

2 SIMPLE Iingredient Cake

1- 21oz can of apple (or fruit of your choice) pie filling

1 box of angel food cake mix
(the kind that only requires water) cake mix for this to work.
 DO NOT add the water!

Mix the 2 ingredients together (the dry packet of cake
mix and the un-drained can of fruit/filling)

Pour in a greased 9x13 pan or dish and bake for about
20 minutes at 350  (or according to baking directions on the box).

  A dollop or 3 of ice cream finishes it off perfectly.

Strong words in today's song playing ... listen and do be thankful.

We all do have a lot, it could always be worse you know.

As hard as it may be, don't always want and long for more.

I believe these words can lead to peaceful thoughts,

something we all can use more of ...
