We're finally starting to figure that out. On Monday as you well know we headed out down the road to Door County for the first time ever. This was an honest to goodness vacation, one that didn't involve working during it. We actually relaxed and did some fun things for us, and I'm still in vacation mode right now, especially with the HOT weather we are having. On our way home yesterday we found out that there is a burn restriction in our county and surrounding counties, especially for those that live in the country. We burn probably 50% of our garbage, which consists mostly of paper products, we recycle everything else and what garbage doesn't burn hardly fills up the small can we use. Walking out in the yard today, every time we stepped, it would crunch under our feet. I'm not sure if we'll be having fireworks in town for the 4th or if they'll be cancelled. I'd rather be safe than sorry, especially with the wildfires in Colorado. I think of my Blogging friend Ann who lives out there.
I'm going to try and look at life more like it's a BIG bowl of cherries, and now I'm off to go and have some.
Have a listen to this song from the 1930's sung by Doris Day, here are the lyrics if you'd like to sing along, the lyrics start about the 1:15 mark...Enjoy!
Life is just a bowl of cherries;
Don't make it serious;
Life's too mysterious.
You work, you save, you worry so,
But you can't take your dough when you go, go, go.
So keep repeating it's the berries;
The strongest oak must fall.
The sweet things in life
To you were just loaned,
So how can you lose what you've never owned?
Life is just a bowl of cherries,
So live and laugh at it all.
