Words for Thursday!
You should probably read my first post for today before going on with this one!
So I went for my 2 and a half mile walk... Have I mentioned we live on a proverbial road that goes up hill BOTH ways? Seriously! See? It doesn't look so bad until you actually walk it in the sun! Whew!
I cam back home ready to tackle the house, but first I yick-yacked with my dear builders and bounced off ideas, much more fun to do without Tall Guy scowling in the background. Then I caught sight of Tink and Bear running around outside. Guess what they wanted to do??? Go for a walk! So off we went down the windmill road. I wish I had my camera at that point, but here they are at the end of the walk so you can see just how cute and different these two girls are!
Yep, Bear wore a dress, and Tink had on her basketball shirt. Bear picked flowers for the tea-party she is planning, and Tink just rolled her eyes and gave me this pleading, "Do I have to play?" look. It all reminds me of a Mac Davis song,"Stop and Smell the Roses." I have so much to do, but taking a walk with my girls is priceless. Ok, NOW it's time to get out Mr. Clean and get serious! That and Tall Guy just came inside and gave me the "Are you still on your computer?!?!?" look. Dang! Tink and Tall Guy are so much alike with their "looks!" So off I go humming....... This is the third verse of "Stop and Smell the Roses."
"Did you ever take a walk through the forest (substitute FIELDS here)
Stop and dream a while among the trees (substitute the word CORN here)
Well you can look up through the leaves right straight to heaven
You can almost hear the voice of God In each any every breeze
You got to Stop and Smell the Roses
You've got to count your many blessings every day
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't Stop and Smell the Roses along the way"
Thanks to Mac for giving us so many great songs! Look him up and see for yourself!
