Weekend Rest

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

Cute Duckling Follows Man (I found this adorable and the cute sound of the pitter patter of the duckling's feet as it chases the man made me laugh).  :)

Here's What Happens if You Put Garlic in Your Ear!

Piglets - Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen  :)

Mr. Bean - Going to Bed

Teddy Brown (Drums) - Early 1930's

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

You cannot change the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around.


It's not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves. - William Shakespeare


I don't want perfect.  I want honest.


May you have peace and joy in 2017.


Hello January!  Cozy fires, fresh snow and hot cocoa.


Every time you take a shower, visualize washing away your stress and anxiety.  Concentrate on the feel of the water upon your skin.  Envision the power of the shower washing away your negative thoughts. Feel sadness, regret, anger and depression washing right off of you.  Let it all go down the drain.  You'll start to feel lighter and much more clear.


I have no country to fight for.  My country is the earth.  I am a citizen of the world. - Eugene Debs


Tell your daughter she is beautiful, but make sure she also knows she is strong, smart and capable.


When someone does something wrong, don't forget the things they did right.


My get up and go got up, looked around and said, "Seriously?" and sat right back down again.  :)


Be generous with gratitude, for it is contagious.


Dr. Pepper  :)


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;  indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead


When things seem shattered and lost...know that nothing stays broken forever.  Gather up your strength and pick up the pieces one by one.  You must keep going...always!  It's going to get better. Yes, you will make it through this.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  6. That little duck is so sweet! I also laughed at the pitter patter noise his feet made, and again when he chirruped and toppled onto his bottom. Just lovely! I’m going to look at the rest of the treats now. Have a good weekend, Barbara x

  15. Ducklings are darling and it appears this one has bonded with its owner. Love the Mr. Bean video...what a great character he is. And I think the Eugene Debs quote is exactly right and what we need for the world today!

    Have a superb weekend and thanks again for your comments. Glad you like the new header!

  16. Funny, I make lists of things to do, then anything on TV seems more important and so the dust accumulates for one more day.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Awww on the duckling and the piglets. So cute.

    I didn't know that about garlic. Good information.

    Mr. Bean cracks me up.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Linda. ♥♥♥

  21. I didn't know garlic had such healing power! I hesitate to put it in my ears, but I might try if I get cold!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yet another great post but my favourite is When someone does something wrong, don't forget the things they did right. Why is it people complain so readily but seldom say well done what a good job. We always try to drop a line or say thanks when we have had a great meal, or someone has done something really well. So important, especially so when your man is in the kitchen helping out :-) Take care and thanks for sharing Diane

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ahhhhhh .... what a cute little duckling. geweldog to the duckling to see if running behind that man whahahahahaha ..... A nice video :-)
    I love garlic and eat it very much. It is an old remedy for many ailments and in this movie is beautifully written how a clove of garlic helps relieve earache.
    Great that these piglets allowed to roam freely :-)))))
    Super is the movie Teddy Brown (Drums). A great artist and drummer!
    Your text spells are all beautiful.
    Have a great weekend.

  37. Linda, Our cat J.D. loved the little duckling! He was sleeping on my printer next to the computer screen and his head popped up as the duckling tweeted as he followed his imprinted mama figure around the house. He watched the piglets for a moment or so and then he lost interest. Thanks and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  48. That little duckling video is sweet. I loved the sound of the pitter patter of his feet walking. The "hello January" quote is so delightful. Hot cocoa is nice during these cold winter months. The shower quote was my favorite. Isn't that the truth? It feels so good to take a nice warm shower after a hectic day.

    Have a restful weekend, Linda, and thanks for the smiles I get every time I visit. :)

    love, ~Sheri

  55. I like the one about always keeping going and never giving up. As you may have noticed one of my favorite quotes is from Clemenceau: "In war, as in peace, the last word goes to those who never give up." Have a wonderful weekend, Linda!

  56. Hello there Linda! It looks like you have some adorable and neat videos up, I will come back to see them. From looking at the comments the duckling sounds like our baby duck we used to have with the little feet and all.

    Cute art on the quotes, and nice quotes as well! I hope you are doing well, it's been a busy week, I've missed your blog!

    Blessings!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi Linda! Hope you are having a great weekend! I love that little duckling! It was interesting about the garlic! I might try some of the things they mentioned! Big Hugs and thanks for the wonderful quotes!

  58. Hi, Linda! I hope that you are enjoying a cozy, relaxing weekend! I enjoyed the videos. as always. There is something so endearing and cute about baby animals, be they ducklings or piglets or whatever! That little duckling could move! No wonder it was napping at the end. Mr. Bean was funny in his odd way ~ and I couldn't imagine why he had all those lightbulbs in his nightstand. I had to laugh at the wash your stress away in the shower quote. The first trailer we rented here in Riverview RV Resort had such a small hot water heater that I couldn't get into the shower and out before I ran out of hot water. I had to open up my shampoo and conditioner and body wash before I got into the shower and race through as fast as I could ~ no time for calming thoughts as I'd barely have my conditioner in my hair when the water turned cool and cold and freezing in seconds. When I'm reunited with my hot water heater at home, I shall enjoy a leisurely shower and wash my stress and worries away! LOL Sending you hugs and much love!

    Many greetings

  61. Hi Linda. I loved that duckling video. And then you surpassed it with the information about garlic. I am a great fan of eating garlic but had never heard of those uses, especially in the ear!I will pass on this information to someone who suffers from a lot of migraine. Have a lovely day.

  70. Hi Linda! I watched the garlic video, and asked my husband if he'd ever heard of these cures. He's Italian,and always had garlic dishes growing up, but these were new ideas to him!
    Love the idea that we are a very huge partner in how our life will be. We have to get out there and do, not just wait for something to happen!
    Sunday blessings,
    Ceil

  71. Thanks for the smiles and motivation as always. That little duckling has imprinted on that man! Jeepers, he thinks it is his mother. Mr Bean is always silly, but the gun at the end scared me for a minute.
