The day

The neighborhood cardinal is getting his voice more in shape. Doesn't sound too bad today. Should be able to find his honey with it anyway. Just seems to be nice crisp morning. Spring needs to hurry and get here! I command it! There I feel better now, at least for the moment anyway. In a minute I will pour a cup of tea, turn on the news and and will immediately have my first attitude adjustment for the day. I shouldn't even turn it on, but then I would wonder if I missed something good....Nah that won't happen.
God bless to any who may read this., and go buy an American flag MADE IN AMERICA and fly it high and proud.----johnnyb

God's creation

When I stepped outside this morning the birds were singing their happy songs. I have to imagine that they are as happy as I am that spring is getting closer. It is a beautiful crisp morning. A little frost on the ground from the moisture we had yesterday. God does such a good job of making his creation look as good as it can even at this time of year. A couple of days ago our neighborhood cardinal was getting his voice warmed up for the upcoming mating ritual. I suppose the blue jays will be showing their faces soon. Trying to get their lions share of the bird seed.
Our iris are showing signs of growth. Seems a little early,but what do I know! Once again God is doing as He sees fit. We must always appreciate God and His creation, but not put the Creation above the Creator. As beautiful as nature is, the Creator is more beautiful. HE will provide. Sometimes in ways we may not understand!
Enough rambling for today. I got clear off the subject I had in mind when I started. Oh well! Such is life. I'll just change the title and another day.----jhb

Day off!

Today was my day off, so what did I do but schedule a dental appointment! Haven't been for a number of years so it was time. I haven't had good teeth for most of my life,but should not have put off going. My teeth (all 7 of them) had finally just withered away. I have had a top denture for 2o years and that has helped with the wear. After a long consultation of my options, and settling on the one that was suggested by the dentist, he proceeded to pull 5 of the remaining, leaving 2 to anchor a plate to. So I spent the rest of the day feeling like I have been run over by a Mac truck. Pain is under control for the time, and hope it remains for the remainder of the night. Called my boss and took tomorrow off also, in case I am still miserable. I am glad that I went and got started on something that has been inevitable for a long time but was just putting it off. I will feel better for it.

My diet will definitely change for the next few months. Not much steak in the forecast! Been needing to cut back anyway, so is a good time to start. Always some good in everything!
