thought for the day...

As I spend my day painting everything that is not bolted down around here,
with the chalk paint recipe provided by
Carole from the fabulous blog Maynard Greenhouse a few weeks ago, 
this will be in my head.
I am outside and although working like crazy,
I am taking in the beautiful fall day that has been 
gifted to us here in Michigan.
The colors are spectacular and the warm breeze is very welcome while I paint!

I got the kids off to school and then Duane and I went on our daily bike ride, and
I am finishing up my lunch of a peanut butter, apple, honey sandwich ~
my new favorite.

life. is. good.

I hope you are able to take the time to really live today.

  1. ...yes dear Theresa
    life. is. good.
    thank you for reminding us to be in the present and savor each and every moment of our lives!!

    xo, Rosemary

    p.s. i will have to give your new fav sandwich a try ~ it sounds tasty!

  2. Hi Theresa,
    Thanks for the beautiful words of inspiration. Sometimes I forget to remember that life is, indeed good!!


  3. Theresa...yes it is absolutely gorgeous here along the lakeshore also. Perfect,
    Thank you for the thought from Dalai Lama. .....sad to think so many do not live for today.

  4. What an awesome quote....so true, so wise. And yummm - that sammy sounds great - I'm somewhat of a sandwich snob - but sounds like a combination this crow would love!! Happy Tuesday to you dear friend....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  5. It sure is Theresa!
    This quote is great (and sadly true).
    I hope we get to see everything you've been painting.
    hugs from here...

  6. I've gotten lots of outdoor projects finished lately, thanks to our nice Michigan weather. I've never visited Maynard Greenhouse, so I'm going to do that next. Keep up the great job painting, Theresa!


  7. A daily bike ride? Holy crap Batman! You are a super hero! The quote is great. I am sure that you are busier than a "one legged man at a butt kicking contest" getting ready for this weekend! I hope it is a big success for you! Good luck! I am loving this weather here lately too.

  8. Thanks for the big ups!!!! meant to write earlier to thank you but haven't been on my puter much in the last couple of days.
    Hope you liked the paint. I've used it everywhere and really like it. Dries super fast!

    Enjoy the great fall weather. We had a gorgeous day today after tons of rain and now more on the way...oh well!



Thank you so much for visiting me here at The Old White House, your comments make my day! ~ Theresa xoxo
