Closing Quotes
“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping”.
Bo Derek

“I went window shopping today! I bought four windows”.
Tommy Cooper

Last year at this time, I caught a cold the day of Christmas and then my furnace breaks down on the same day going down to 65 Celsius before getting fixed, my car windshield was shatter from falling frozen ice snow off a transport truck that hit the driver side windshield. Lucky not at repeat of last year and I got by this year with peace of mind! 

Lets enjoy the rest of the next 4 days leading up to the New Year. 🤸‍♂️

Cheers, 🥂

“The virtue of anyone or anything is solely in our perspective. See gold, and there is gold; see lead and there is lead. If you see this thistle as a thorny nuisance, then it is a weed. If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower. It becomes what you name it. The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.”

Quote of the Day
“Let’s say you had to report back to heaven at the end of your time on earth, tell them what your personal allotment of experience had been: wouldn’t it sound like Poppy’s speech? The smell of radiator dust on a winter morning, the taste of hot maple syrup …”

Closing Quote
“The End of the Most Amazingest Trip in the History of Time “We’re heading home after checkout, Enzo,” Dad told me one morning in the restaurant of a Sacramento hotel as I was busy scarfing down French toast stuffed with cheese and drenched in maple syrup. I will never eat stuffed French toast again. The trip was over? How did this happen? All six weeks couldn’t possibly have come and gone so fast. Time is so unfair. It whizzes by when you’re having the most incredible fun of your life, then drags when you’re totally miserable, like, say, when you’re stuck at the wedding of people you’re not even sure you know. Dad and his boss, Evan, set their hands on my shoulders, to steady me. I was feeling pretty wobbly. Then they took turns tousling my hair. I hate having my hair tousled. “Don’t!” I whined like a little kid, and pushed their hands away. Evan laughed. “Don’t take it so hard. Even the most awesome things have to come to an end”
Author: Patrick Jennings

Yes all things must come to an end and that’s it for today, hope you enjoy today’s post National Maple Syrup Day and enjoy some maple syrup on your pancakes, french toast or beans. See you back here tomorrow! 😃
