the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly,
but the bumble bee doesn't know it so...
it goes on flying anyway."

Life is sometimes complicated,
and things can get a little mazy.
But a nice walk outdoors...
usually keeps me from going crazy.

To get out with the trees, birds and flowers to clear my mind...
 and to take a short break from the daily grind.
Appreciating the beauty as I step outside...
wraps me in peace that only Nature provides.
I start to feel quiet, calm and unweighted...
enjoying the wonderful things that God created.

I hope you have a beautiful week !! :)

Because....I was in the mood for something
Have you ever found yourself wishing...
there was something like brownies or some cookies in the house ?
I do...but I also know, that if there were...
I wouldn't stop munching on them till they were gone.
[ask hubby what happens when I get out his box of vanilla wafers]
I have bad impulse control when it comes to sweets.
So I TRY to keep them out of the house.
Except for the aforementioned wafers...
and Dove Chocolates for me.
I am only human.

I had a craving the other night for something
...and it wasn't just a piece of chocolate.
Oh no. I wanted to indulge !!
So I tired this little recipe I had tucked away. [SUPER EASY]
[*temptation're welcome !]


4 TBS. Flour
4 TBS. Sugar
2 TBS. Cocoa
2 TBS. veg, oil
2 TBS. water
pinch of salt
Stir well in a mug
Microwave 1 minute. [gooey-ish]
I did mine for 1 1/2 min.
The recipe also said you can sprinkle chocolate chips on top...
I didn't.
I sprinkled Vanilla ice-cream on top !! :)

It. Is. Yummy.
There is plenty to share...and I did.
Hubby had a couple of bites...
and that was enough.
Not because I wanted to hog it all.
He's just not that into sweets.
Which works out well for me !

Have a sweet day !!

Because.... I was fascinated by the geese
warding off a snapping turtle,
while we sat on a park bench
feeding them cheerios.

And, I love a day, that hanging out with my guy,
and satisfying my craving for frozen custard
are top priority on my"to do" list. :)

Recovery in the slow lane
can be a little challenging.

bad pic...they were checking on him. sweet.

But throughout the weeks... there has been laughter,
long talks, exercise, and naps.
We have sat on the porch and read,
taken drives in the country and
watched movies.
Truth is...
minus hubby's discomfort....
I could really get used to this. :)

“If I wasn't a human girl I think I'd like to be a bee and live among the flowers.”  

These are Dana's flowers. 
Her gardens are a labor of love.
And this week has been a scorcher.
She is away.
 I have flowers too...
like....3, if your comparing.
Not watering, isn't an option.
I love my flowers !!
And I love her's too... mornings while hubby is in PT...
this has become my little oasis.
I love the time to play with my camera too.
It's been a great way to start my day...
and to keep the grouchies away.
And also....

this happened.

Happy weekend.
Stay cool :)



Because..."aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so... it goes on ...
