"You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way." ~ Walter Hagen
When I stop and smell the flowers in my back yard I usually get a grasshopper up my nose. Is it just me or are these crazy things as big as hummingbirds this year? Sheesh!
They can lift a whole watermelon from my garden and I'm NOT EVEN lying.
Luckily, some of the flowers in my yard are survivors. OH! Don't EVEN get me started. I've watched every season every year and I can attest that EVERY friend I have is probably tired of me when SURVIVOR starts. Because the world stops. Everything stops. Cook dinner? Whhaaat are you talking about? These people are surviving on rice & ants. It's real. They could DIE.
whoops. sorry - went a little wacko for a second. Kids, see what TV does to your brain?
Here's a little monday motivation for those dog days of August summer when even your WELCOME MAT is tired.
30 minute walk outside
10 sun salutations (slo mo burpees & add a couple lunges & push ups)
Choose your ab love here
And some loving advice from my glass half full mom - "Oh for crying out loud, Josie! There's ALWAYS something to be grateful for. Some kids don't even have a dog to pick up dog poop after. So be happy you have a dog, take your brother and get back outside and clean that $h!t up!"
Go make it a great Monday and be positive. Like my mom.
