Morning Calm


The storm systems have moved to the East once again being replaced by sunny skies, warmer temperatures, but most of all no wind like we have been experiencing this past week.  

I was pleasantly surprised this morning to see the lake so calm.   There are fish jumping all across the lake as far as the eye can see.   Yesterday morning by this time, the lake was quite crowded with fisherman.    Today on the other hand, I have only seen a handful of fishing boats float  by our little piece of Heaven.   The Mockingbird is busy singing his list of songs and  wondering why this yankee doesn’t have  any food to offer him, afterall, where is my southern hospitality !   (I definitely will be bringing a bird feeder along next year.)   

Judy (travels with Emma) I want you to know that I joined in on your double dare.   I sat outdoors in my pj’s with a cup of coffee and soaked in the beautiful sunrise.   Thankfully for all of my blog readers, I don’t have anyone else to man the camera…so you are spared the visual pollution.  Take my word for it, there is a whole lot more beauty in this world than seeing me in my morning-do.

I am celebrating a victory of sorts today as well.  It is often times difficult to feed Bob as he has become somewhat picky.    Over the course of our trip he has discovered he enjoys yogurt.    This morning I threw a fruit smoothie together in hopes that I had found another healthy option and secretly added wheat germ.   Shazam, he asks for more!  I think my next step is to make homemade yogurt without the sugar and use the added fruit to sweeten naturally.   I love yogurt and it has gone along ways towards helping digestion.   If I could only interest him in some homemade granola….(that occasion is coming sooner than he realizes.) 

While here at Stillhouse Hollow Lake COE we have enjoyed meeting and visiting with the couple parked next to us.   Floyd is also battling disabilities, however they have a wonderful dry sense of humor that I am thrilled to say has had Bob laughing once again.   Life is on the upswing!   Although traveling this winter has presented challenges and some obstacles,  for the most part I am tickled with the  therapy that the both of us have received for different reasons.   I have to believe this will be a much better year than last year. 


Here is hoping there is sunshine in everyone’s back yard.   Take care





  1. Looks like a beautiful place Sue. I am surprised that you haven't thrown in a line to catch dinner! What are you waiting for? Enjoy your warm weather. Tomorrow we are expecting 54 degrees! woo hoo ;)


    1. Sharon with my fishing skills I would probably only catch a tire that some door knob camper polluted the lake with.

  2. Loved the picture of that beautifully calm lake. Plain greek yogurt is my goto goodie and I can add whatever I want. Even if you don't have time to make it, you could still get the good plain stuff and add your yummies. Nice to find something Bob likes, for sure.

  3. Maybe you can top some of his yogurt with a bit of granola, stir it in....surely, oh surely he will like that. And smoothies, you can sneak in spinach and other good veggies! You are doing a good job, Nurse Pat! Love your photos.

  4. Aw, come on Sue, we need a photo! I set my camera on the kitchen sink counter to get mine (with a timer). Really whacked my shin trying to get into position for the pic. :)

    Kudos to you for doing all you do for Bob. You are one of my heroes...

    1. If the truth is known Judy I have a is just the nerve that I lack to post pictures of myself in night is also known as indecent exposure. Aren't there laws regarding that in Mississippi???? Ha!


OOOPS! you almost missed the spot to tell us what is on your mind. Go ahead, leave a comment.....
