Thursday September 14th~

Focus on the small things life already has 
offered you, or else you may turn your boundless
 blessings to countless disappointments...

Today I was up earlier than the usual.  I don't 
understand why I can't sleep through the night.  Of 
course I will be very exhausted by early afternoon.

My deer friends have been consistent.  6:15-6:30 every morning. 
 They stay for about two hours gobbling up every corn kernel and
 now they also get carrots cubed just for them.  Yes, I spend a
 lot of time catering to my wildlife.  I will sure miss them.

This time around we do not have that many squirrels.  I have 
maybe 3 and they are just babies.  I make sure they have their
 peanuts, and now when they steal the bird food, I let them.  Plus,
 they provide me with hours of entertainment every day 😍

Sniff is awake with me.  He just had a half an hour 
of rampant running and tearing his scratch pads apart.  Now 
he's calmer, maybe exhausted.  Time for his other nap 😹

Arvid and I have a busy day today.  Again.  Hopefully tomorrow we will
 make time to not be so busy.  Good morning to all and  just remember, 
never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. 

Appreciating the little things in life means that you focus 
your attention on what nurtures and sustains you in life. On
 everything that brings you even the smallest amount of pleasure.
 It also means practicing gratitude by noticing these everyday
 things that you take for granted so easily....
