Welcome back Team David followers,
I enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine we had beaming down on us today. I enjoyed my morning stroll around the yard making mental notes on what flowers will be blooming next and if any special care is needed. I noticed those darn leaf rollers on my canna seem to be hatching another new brood. I presume I will need to get out the spray again to control the pesky little critters.
I love the late summer flowering plants. I have several varieties scattered around our huge yard and down by the creek. The red cypress vine, yellow goldenrods, tall purple ironweeds, and orange butterfly weeds punctuate our green summer landscape with their vibrant rich colors. To some these are weeds, to me they are a thing of beauty to admire.
The Labor Day holiday weekend is fast approaching and we are still firming up our plans. We are planning on seeing my brother and his wife from Virginia for a cookout on Monday. It will be great to see them again and it will be a great opportunity for Keith to take some great photographs of the family gathering. I will stop dead heading the fall mums and asters after the holiday to prepare them for blooming cycle in a few weeks.
I understand today is Race Your Mouse Day on my no holiday August calendar. I learned on August 28th computer owners are encouraged to race our mouse around your desktop icons while waiting for your computers to do whatever it is they’re doing. The idea is that this silly way to pass the time will make us feel like we are not wasting our time. It was a waste of my time researching this silly holiday.
Today marks the 50th Anniversary of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historical and moving “I Have A Dream” speech. The powerful message he delivered from the step of the Lincoln Memorial that day still resonates across America today. I suggest if you have not read the text of the speech to do so, it is very uplifting. We still have a ways to go, but we have made tremendous strides in the past 50 years. The rights of every citizen must be respected and tolerated if we are to live together side by side. I feel personally there is too much hatred and not enough love in the world for our fellow man. We point the finger and blame others for our faults. We must first learn to love ourselves before we can love others. You must be able to see the world in all of the colors of its brilliant hues and shades to really enjoy living life.
Well Team David followers, I will close for today. Let’s keep our thoughts and prayers for our nation and with Syria in a positive mode. I hope an agreement can be reached.
Go Team David!
Stay positive until tomorrow…
I hope that what I am today is of positive benefit to other people.
