Lets Do This Now

Author:

Thank You All For Being Here

Every day does not have to be the extreme

It can be easy as pie

A sweet thought to ponder

A feeling of wonder

Not go big or go home

Enjoying this time we have together

The news will make you crazy

Three days of rain can make you lazy

A little today and more tomorrow

Sometimes there is no right or wrong

Just a different way to spend your day

It's like having breakfast for supper

Bacon and eggs will do just fine

So many thoughts going through my head

We make our day different

By cutting here and extending there

Trying to do things that matter the most

When we see chaos

We don't have to make it part of our life

No second-guessing

Going with our instincts

What we take away from the day

Behind the scenes

Think on your feet

Make life a little messy

In the end, it really is something special

No cold feet

Why not, make things up as we go

First thing I want to do

Write my heart out

As I listen to a cricket and firework combo

It only gets better

When we share life together

Ann Carr Holidays can be so much fun. My job is in a restaurant so I end up working most holidays. I still love watching people when they are so happy with their family and doing things. Thank you so much for reading and sharing a little more love. Have a great night.

Definitely not too hot here! We've had cold winds and rain but today is sunny and the winds have dropped.

You asked about celebrations: we have Bonfire Night (or Guy Fawkes' Day) which celebrates the fact that Guy Fawkes failed to blow up Parlliament. It's on 5th November and there are fireworks and bonfires with jacket potatoes cooked in the fire and mince pies made for afterwards when we come in to get warm. We also have May Day (1st May of course), the originally pagan day of spring and fertility, when some still dance round the Maypole on the village green - I did that as a little girl, at school, and I also did it for my 50th birthday (a day later), in the garden! I have some loyal friends who joined in.

Boxing Day is another - the day after Christmas was the traditional day that the Victorians gave presents (in boxes) so they started something. Most people do presents on Christmas Day now but Boxing Day is still a holiday, usually for walks with the family and friends.

As for the garden, I'm growing raspberries, gooseberries, runner beans, thyme, oregano, various mints, and sage.

I hope you're keeping safe and well, and that you too have a lovely day.

Ann Carr When I walk out in the yard there is nothing more I like better than to see plants grow. We are trying to grow tomato plants in pots this year. We will see how that goes. I even get excited with weeds. What are you growing in your garden? Have fun and enjoy all that fresh air. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. You make me very happy. Have a nice day tomorrow. I hope it won't be too hot.

Ann Carr What a lovely way to enjoy life. Chickens sound so cool. Fresh eggs now that is absolutely delicious. What big celebrations do you have they we might not have here? Life can have many valleys but the peaks really make it special. Keeping up with the family and making sure everyone is doing o.k. Thank you so much for all your kind thoughts and wishes. Pleasant dreams.

We don't celebrate of course (!) but I had a great day, tending to garden and chickens. Our local wildlife also continues to delight so I'm a happy bunny!

My day was in the garden and keeping an eye on our new chickens. We let them out for the first time yesterday - their independence day!

It's great to have them and they've given us lost of eggs already, in just one week!

I'm enjoying the days, like you, just taking each one at a time and seeing what we can come up with. I check on the children and as long as they're fine, I'm fine too.

Keep up the positivity!

Ann Carr I ended up working for the 4th but I loved listening to some local fireworks people were having when I got home. How was your day? I love walking around our yard and seeing the chipmunks run across or the birds eating birdseed. Thank you for visiting and sharing.

Genna East However your day turns out it can be very special. I enjoy many mornings just watering our flowers around our yard. Weeding after to keep it looking nice. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope you had a lovely 4th Of July.

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on July 05, 2020:

What a delightful poem! And what a refreshing perspective on life. Thank you.

Ann Carr from SW England on July 04, 2020:

I love this! It's exactly how I look at life at the moment.

Do as you think best to feel safe and well and entertained - perfect.

Happy 4th July!
