Hi Pumpkin!

Earlier this month hubby and I went to the pumpkin patch.  I was having a really good day.  We had a great day together.  We played in the pumpkin patch, went through the petting zoo, and had kettle corn.  Last weekend I had another great day and carved the pumpkin I picked!   Yay Pumpkins!   (sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you pay for things later, it’s worth the fun you have in the moment)pumpking-patch-wendy



KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON a poster that was made to during World War II in Britain but was never used.  It was to be put up if full-scale invasion happened.  It never happened, so the posters were destroyed, well most of them.  You can read all about how a poster was found and the Calm-O-Matic was started here http://www.keepcalm-o-matic.co.uk/guide-to-keep-calm/

This prompt is very interesting.  We are asked to make a poster of our own, and possibly make it about our own illness.  Well, I have so many illnesses, I decided to make it more about a motto.

We all have bad days, and we all have good days, I think we should make sure to not take the good days for granted.  Every good day you have, do something you really want to do!  That doesn’t mean you have to run off and do something adventurous or over tire yourself.  If you really want to just relax and watch a movie, Do It!  If you want to sit in the backyard and enjoy the sun, Do It!  If you want to go for a ride with your husband and just enjoy being out of the house, as I often do, then do it!  All I’m saying is, do not continue to lie in bed on those days when you feel like you could move to the couch.  Do not stay on the couch when you feel you could walk outside.  If you love to cook, and think you could that night, go for it!  Make sure you have a back up in case you feel you are over doing it.

I promise even on those days you do a little too much, and you are a bit more tired or sore the next day, you will feel better that you accomplished something, and felt free for a little while.  (if you are as isolated as I often am, you know what I mean by feeling free)


May you have many, many Good Days!
