Seen On A Tee-Shirt

Lately, I have seen soooo many Tee-Shirts with hilarious sayings that I have decided to share. What brought this on? Well, you may ask. This morning my husband and I started to look through one of those catalogues that come in the mail and they had a Tee-Shirt section that had us both in stitches. OK, so we were pretty hard up for a laugh-and who isn’t these days- but honestly, I will share a couple of them and then ask YOU to also share those you think are funny and we will see where we go with this. Thanks in advance for sharing.


Because It’s Summertime!

Yes, I plant lots of petunias every summer. They are so beautiful. They thrive, grow and spread. I buy many different colors and where I live in West Virginia the Lowes has the most healthy plants. I buy them by the six pack and they are very inexpensive. They are in my front yard, around my trees, and in the flower boxes on my back deck.

Do try petunias if they work in your climate zone. Do it just because it’s SUMMERTIME!


I noticed in my newspaper that Kung Fu Panda 4 is now playing in movie theaters. I don’t know if you have seen the movies or if you think this kind of thing is for children only or even a bit corny, but I can assure you that this is not the case. These are movies about an underdog who gains confidence through hard work and makes it.

I highly recommend this attitude and these movies. Let me know what you think!

Breakfast @Church pancakes

My husband is the pancake maker at our church breakfasts. He and his helper Chris have served literally hundreds of pancakes and their favorite brand is Kursteaz. I don’t do pancakes although I do love them, but Bill and Chris swear by this brand and won’t use anything else. I guess once the guys put on their aprons and start to cook, it is all hands on deck for pancakes and sausage gravy, pancakes and bacon, and pancakes with any and all types of fruit. My favorite? I love blueberry pancakes. How about YOU?

Eye Of The Beholder?

I love that beauty can come in any form. Flowers are lovely always. Winnie the Pooh is sweet and soft and warm. Scenery is calm and peaceful.

My favorite thing of beauty is often just the right spoken word to make one feel at peace with everything. Pooh Bear has a gift for that. For example:

“You are braver than you know.”

I think this gives one the power to face situations with courage. Sometimes we do not know how brave we actually are until something happens, do we?

Pooh has so many quotes that I absolutely love. I will continue to share them as our summer goes on. BTW one of the things that I really love is SUMMER!

Can We Spring Into Summer Yet?

Pretty soon, dear friends, it will be time for JELL-O with cottage cheese, green JELL-O, and all sorts of other yummy outdoor desserts. I love lemon aid with frozen strawberries used as ice cubes. I also really love any frozen dessert, and don’t forget sweet tea you guys from the South. Sweet tea rules in the summer right along with white bread tomato sandwiches! What are some of YOUR summer favorites?

How Much and How Many?

Okay, so let’s go for a walk. Oh, wait a minute, how far should we walk and BTW just exactly how much should we actually be exercising? Well, as you may have guessed, this is not set in stone no matter what the 10,000 steps a day people say to you.

My doctor tells me that this, like the 8 glasses a day of water, is a myth based on absolutely nothing. In fact, I recently read in Prevention Magazine that for people over 60, the recommended step amount is 3,600 and even that should be individually evaluated.

I walk 5,000 per day and my Fitbit records active minutes and I try to do 20 per day. Walking the dog or running the vacuum are my go to events.

The one bit of nutritional advice that seems to be pretty universal is the 5 servings per day of fruits and veggies. A serving is 1/2 cup and actually this is pretty easy to do. Give it a try for good health instead of taking a pill!
