Good morning, everyone! I hope this is the beginning of a wonderful day for you. Don't you just love this picture? I don't know about you, but sometimes my world is very little... just my neighborhood. But the world is very big and so is our God.
I told you earlier this week about the new vlog I am watching. Let me tell you, this lady, Cas, is organized! I should have a mind like hers. And she is just like me in so many ways, so it makes me think that if she can do it, so can I. One of the videos I watched yesterday was called "Eat the Frog!" She was talking about the book of the same name. The title is taken from a saying of Mark Twain's. He once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long. In other words, get the thing you most dread doing done first thing in the morning and the rest of your day will just flow into place. There is one spot in my living room that I keep putting off cleaning because it is a HUGE job. And then at the end of the day it is still not done and I tell myself that tomorrow I will do it. I am going to try to do it FIRST this morning. I bet it doesn't take me as long as I think it will. I'm beginning to think dreading to do it is worse than actually sitting down and getting it done.
The weather has been beautiful here. It is getting warmer again. I am loving it, but I know it won't last. I have actually gotten out my jacket and am wearing it. *sigh* I hate wearing sweaters, jackets and coats. Hopefully this will not be a bad winter.
I haven't done a Photo Friday in a long time so I thought it was a good day to do this. Actually this photo isn't mine, but one from my brother, Larry. (See the link to his blog Exploration Photography at the end of my list.) Every day he comes up with a photo of the day. And one of his favorite topics is squirrels. This is one he posted the other day and I just thought it was so cute and so fall looking.
If you get a chance, check out his blog. It's really great seeing a new photo every day.
And since Photo Friday is all about showing you an everyday view of the Philadelphia I live in, here is one of mine from November 2011 taken outside of Richmond Library where I used to work. The modern buildings of center city are framed by the early 20th century row houses of this working class neighborhood.
So you got two for the price of one today. Now it is time for me to start my day. Hope you all have a good one.
