Our local Veteran's celebration  was this morning.  It is small town at its best.  Always remembering those in our community who have served, recognizing them and paying tribute to those who are no longer here.

After the celebration, we went to the family owned business who restores used appliances and found once again, a great washer.  They will deliver Monday or Tuesday and take our old one and hopefully be able to rebuild it and resale it one more time.  I shudder to think of all the appliances in this country which have found a final resting place in a landfill.   I appreciate this family for what they do.

We walked the dogs this evening near sundown.  The light is so different then than in the mornings.
The tops of the trees shimmered in the glow of the evening sun.  I took deep breaths of the cold fresh air, grateful for such a wonderful day.

Take some time tomorrow to think about the upcoming week.  Take some time to be grateful for those in your life who are there for you, think about ways to share your joy and ways to extend kindness to those you see daily.  May your Sunday be filled with peace.


  1. I agree, I wish there were more places like your appliance store that refurbished the old instead of letting them fill the landfills. It seems to be a disposable society. I'll be remembering our veterans today and all those that have made such a difference in my life. Hope your have a peace filled Sunday too.

  2. I'm glad that you could get a refurbished washer. They do as good a job as those flimsy electronic washer that have a life span of only 7 years or less. It's a conspiracy of big companies to suck as much money from us as possible.

    This morning at breakfast, we sat at a table with our usual breakfast group and a well decorated elderly veteran sat at the table behind us. When I was getting up to leave, I went over to thank him for all he did for us and he was so very appreciative and gave me a warm handshake and I'm so glad I did.

    Peace to you and hugs.

  3. It is sad that there are not more places that repair things instead of just have them binned
