All work and no play.....

...makes one want to stop and get off!!

That's pretty much what we did this morning, and it was a very welcome change. A really good reason for working hard doesn't change the fact that it gets beyond tough, at times. He's working much harder than I am, bless his heart (and it's greatly appreciated), so when the opportunity came to absolutely relax, we did stop and we did get off...and it was heavenly.

Even a little bit of that goes a long way!

Can't wait to do it again ;+)

Saturday's Sweethearts....

Someone posted this picture on one of the boards we frequent, and I thought it was too cute to not put here, anticipating Valentine's Day.

It also brought to mind how *it's all in our attitude*--let's face and embrace that which seems overwhelming and intimidating...

Most of all, I just wanted to share something that might bring a smile. Hope the days ahead will be filled with good things for us all!

Welcome, 2008....what took you so long?

That's the thought that's crossed my mind at least a half dozen times since the last burst of fireworks on New Year's Eve. There's a lot to be said for "anticipation," but that sense of "at last" packs a lot of punch, too! I guess it's pretty obvious that we've got a lot going on in the months ahead and we're anxious to get the show on the road.

I've been listening to the song SGTex gave me the other day, Alan Jackson's "Livin' On Love." It really speaks to where my heart will be after all the dust settles and our plans and projects have come to fruition...

I guess that just about covers it.
