“Each and every animal on earth
has as much right
to be here as you and me.”

Plan to attend this fundraiser tomorrow with all my donations from their “Wish List”. Hopefully, we won’t be rained out and I’ll have some great photos to share on my post tomorrow.
“I decided in my life that I would do
nothing that did not reflect positively
on my father’s life.”
“Together with a culture of work,
there must be a culture
of leisure as gratification.
To put it another way:
people who work must take the time
to relax, to be with their families,
to enjoy themselves, read,
listen to music, play a sport.”
Old Time Wood Poster of Redondo Beach
Such a quiet and relaxing day. So much to be thankful for, I feel very fortunate.
My son and his girlfriend stopped by for dinner. We ate early because his girlfriends grandma is in the hospital, and they wanted to pay her a visit.
We hope her grandma has a speedy recovery and will soon return back home.
“The hardest arithmetic to master is that which
enables us to count our blessings.”

“If you want an interesting party sometime,
combine cocktails and
a fresh box of crayons for everyone.”
It’s good old-fashioned child’s play. Filling in the spaces with color. The newest and best relaxation method, and stress-reducer that is soaring in popularity. It’s something that most people haven’t done since elementary school — coloring.
The draw, so to speak, is in the calming effect of picking up a crayon, marker or colored pencil and filling in the white spaces.
Lately, coloring is so popular in France, coloring books are out selling cookbooks. Amazon lists over 2,200 coloring books for sale. In fact, producers of coloring books for adults can’t seem to print them fast enough. One of the top ten best sellers on Amazon listed is Johanna Basford’s “Secret Garden” series.
What a great way to relax, be creative and engage in activity that allows you to free your mind from the stresses of the day. Call this new fad anything you want, but I’d say this new stress buster is colored with success.
