Stressed Out?

Take 2 cups of coffee in a mayonnaise jar… When things in your life seem too much to handle, when 24 hours  in a day is not enough, remember the mayonnaise and 2 cups of coffee.   A professor stood before his philosophy class And had some items in front of him When the class began, wordlessly He picked up a very large And empty mayonnaise jar And proceeded to fill it with golf balls.   He then asked the students If the jar was full. They agreed that it was full.   The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled in the open areas between the golf balls.   He then asked the students again If the jar was full They agreed it was.   The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students …

After the Storm

The early hours of this morning we were awoken by rain,hailstones and violent winds.No electricity,alarms,sirens and an eerie,scary view from our windows.Yesterday,with scorching temperatures,obviously it was natures way of cooling things down. We were lucky in one respect only one tree fell due to these forceful winds,we were amazed that there wasn’t more damage, the vineyard survived.! One of our friends lost his whole crop with damage from hailstones. This is the tree that fell on the roadside in front of our house. After harvesting this was the first Sunday morning home in a long time for Silvano, but had to work just the same… We’ve had grey skies all day, as the hour of sun set approaches however the suns rays are dazzling and playing shadows within the garden. Oak tree and acorns…. The photo above…plant unknown   The vineyard…these are table grapes,which we’ve grafted onto one vine…   These are Pinot Grigio…   A Sunday full of daydreams,writing and reading…quality time for me and with my man… My friends,I hope you had a …

Rose Petal Pink

Pink is part of my world. You won’t find any pink in my wardrobe apart from a newly purchased pair of pink pearl earrings…on the good advise from a friend. You’ll however find pink, not lollipop pink more like antique rose pink in my house… rose frosted glassware,freshly cut pink roses,scatted pink rose petals, rose colored champagne, rose cake tins and the list goes on. However,my childhood memories are lollipop pink. The strawberry pink milkshakes and ice creams, marshmallows and hundreds and thousands. Going to the local fair hand in hand with my Nonno (grandfather) to buy pink fairy floss and maybe you remember those dollies on sticks, antique looking with plastic painted hair,wanting to choose first, the one in the pink dress. I remember my mother dressing me in a Sundays best pink crochet dress and funny enough my 21st birthday party was all pink with hand painted rose invitations, so yes pink is part of my world. Why all this talk about pink…Today I received a lovely pink  award…it’s pretty and pink…and a …
