Today’s Featured Blog…Life Experiment Blog!!


Hello All 🙂

I do hope you are enjoying your summers! (Or Winter, depending on where you are in the world) Personally, things have been on super high speed since about a month before the wedding. We were so happy to just sit down and breathe when we returned. However, we quickly realized that there was so much left undone here that it was only time to ‘just do it’. So…that’s what we’ve been up to.

Today, I just couldn’t resist. The sun is shining beautifully and I had to run out with my coffee and just….enjoy it. No lists, no running to this place or the other, the dishes can wait, the work can wait.

If life is merely just a bunch of snapshots strung together, I want this moment in my file!

Danny’s World: Pool Time With the Fam

Love hanging with the family at the pool.  It’s so nice to float around and let the stress of work melt away!

It also reminds me that I need to get some sun on my pale body!

Danny’s World: My Current Situation

Lunch – check

Meds – check

Stats update – check

I appreciate the kind well-wishes.  I’m feeling a bit better than this morning thank goodness.  I have learned the valuable lesson of listening to my body.  When it says it’s time to rest, then it’s time to rest!

Why It Is Important To Plan Your Disconnect Time

Danny's iphone 022This weekend Evelina and I decided to unplug and disconnect a bit.  She was on-call yesterday for work, but other than that slight inconvenience we decided to have some planned time away.  For me this was perfectly timed as I needed time to recharge following our vacation.  I know that might sound a bit ridiculous considering we returned from vacation on Tuesday, but the truth is the driving time zapped my energy.

I believe it is important to plan time away from technology.  It is important to plan time to decompress and do absolutely nothing.  Remember, life isn’t about working the hardest all the time; it’s about working the smartest all the time.  And sometimes the smart thing to do is…nothing!

Making a nice cup of tea

Introducing Notes From the U.K.!!

(as always feel free to comment, but please be considerate and leave comments with the original blogger also.  After all, they did the work, I just hit a button)

Notes from the U.K.

When my British friends seriously want some tea, they get specific about what they want: not just tea but a nice cup of tea.

Let’s take that apart: We can leave a and of alone without destabilizing anything important. But think about the word nice. Because you don’t just have a cup of tea in this country, you have a nice cup of tea. Even when the nice is silent, if you listen carefully you can hear it resonating in the background. I need a nice cup of tea, a nice cup of tea, a nice cup of tea.

And if the cup of tea you get tastes like second-hand dishwater? It’s all the more disappointing, because what you wanted was that nice cup of tea, not this travesty you’ve been handed.

In the U.S., we never sit down to a nice cup of coffee. We drink coffee, we make coffee…

Sir Bentley

Today I am taking a break from my usual programming and relaxing.  No serious posts or deep thoughts.  No challenges.  Just chill and relax.

Porch Sitting

Today’s theme has been learning to take time to relax and recharge the ole’ mind and body. I think Seeking a Life Full of Laughter has it figured out!! This is a very good read!

Seeking a Life Full of Laughter

In the chaos, that is the school year, I often feel as though I never have time set aside time to just “relax”. One of my favorite things to do this summer, since I finally have a home in which I enjoy, is to sit on the porch.


I live in one of those neighborhoods, where single family homes are highlighted by cozy front porches where neighbors gather in the evenings and watch the happenings of the neighborhood. It is from my porch that I can watch my neighbor landscape her property, catch up on the latest gossip from Marlene across the street, watch as the ladies who live down the street take Tucker on his nightly walk, and sit on my chair listening to Mumford & Sons (and other such types of music) while sipping a glass of wine. Even my cat, Stitch, gets to enjoy the porch on…
