{zippity doo dah}

"zippity doo dah
zippity aye
oh my what a wonderful day"

it's the weekend
my Saturday morning is looking fine
the whole weekend is a head of me 
my cozy fireplace is on
my tea in my hand
my plans on paper
what more could I ask for?

"Mister blue bird's
on my shoulder
it's the truth
everything is 

loving this song today
please make it a great day.....remember it up to you 
Every morning we have a choice
we can count our blessings
or we can count our calamities
we can count our joys
or we can count life's blows & burdens
It's our choice
we decide
we choose
and as we decide and choose 
our lives are formed

Thank you sweet Renee for the lovely bluebirds
......they now hang so sweetly on my wall
and remind me to count all my blessings
each and everyday
Renee's lovely blog is Sewn with Grace
if you have a moment please visit her
her lovely thoughts and images are sure to cheer you up

Oh joy such darling little birdies.
My Saturday is half way, it looks like Summer has arrived in stead of Autumn. Very warm temperatures and sunshine all day long. We have been cycling and had an ice cream. You see, Summer activities in stead of making Fall wreaths and hot chocolate ;)
How is your new home my friend, does it have that magical blue bird touch in every little corner already?
Much love for a great weekend xoxoxoxoxoxo

Blessings and hugs~

I love your post today.. I agree that life is what you make of it and how you decide to feel and think.

Oh Koralee, I love these! I hope the one I gave you goes well in your home as well....maybe it wasn't your style...I so wanted to give you something when I saw you. These are DEFINITELY YOU!!!!

AH YES, it is our choice. I must choose to go in on Monday and control what i can, and that which I cannot control, I must REMEMBER to do my best and just move on...stress is taking over!

Good morning sweet friend!

Oh, I think I feel rested today; yesterday I was a bit tired, but I had the most MAGICAL MEETING with Irina, who commented here. I am fortunate to have her as a friend here in my city and what a gentle soul, JUST LIKE YOU! I need gentle souls in my life and especially during stressful times. I hope you are feeling energized to go in this week and do your job. I just want to be able to do my job but unfortunately, everyone is wound up so tightly with more work, less people! SO what do we do? WE TAKE A DEEP BREATHE and BLOG!!!! So good to see you and I am glad that the glitter bird is in your home; yep, I think it would look great on a white tree! DO YOU DO WHITE or even a TURQUOISE TREE!!! WOOOO!

Have fun today my sweet, Anita

I use to sing that song to my children to cheer them up when they were little. Now I sing if for myself. Love the bluebirds! I hope you are having a good start to the school year. Do you sing this to your students?
