Weekend Romp and Happy Easter!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!

Happiness is balance between your mind and your heart. - Kaninho

Something will grow from all you are going through, and it will be you.

There are some things you can only learn in a storm.

The best feeling is when someone appreciates everything about you that someone else took for granted.

Nobody is ever "too busy," if they're interested, they'll make time.

If there is no way, create one.

If someone really wants to see you, they will find a reason, they will find a way, and they will make the effort.

A blossom can't be forced open.  Be gentle with'll bloom when you're blooming ready. :)

Being unique is better than being perfect.

Happiness held is the seed;  happiness shared is the flower. - John Harrigan

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is YOU.  Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write, draw, build, play, dance and live only as YOU can.

Be grateful and embrace the lessons before you, life is wonderful in so many's not what life brings to you, it's the attitude you bring to life.

Oh hay!  :)

Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity. - Khalil Gibran

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!


  1. Wonderful Linda, right now I am in a hotel room and enjoying your post. Thank you so much my friend. Have a great weekend and Happy Easter.

  2. Hi! A Blessed and Happy Easter to you. Have a delightful weekend.

  3. Lovely post, Linda! I love very much english gardens.

    Happy weekend!

  4. Such wonderful post, as always, dearest Linda.
    The English Country Garden video cheers me up this morning - we had -9 C when I got up. Banjo is perhaps not my favourite instrument, but the young woman is incredibly talented... and pretty.

    Happy Easter! <3

  5. Hello Linda. I love Robin. That bird is so cute. Happy and peaceful Easter to you.

  6. Beautiful gardens, smart bird!

    Have a nice day, dear Linda!

  7. I like the one about being "unique." I've been called lots of things, and some of them were less than complimentary but those I like to think relate to my "uniqueness." :))

    So sorry to hear about your labyrinthitis. I wasn't sure what that was so had to look it up and then I realized how debilitating it is. It must be painful, affect your balance, etc. I'm sure you're being treated by a doctor as that's the good thing, it can be treated. Just take good care of yourself, and I hope you're back to 100% very soon!

  8. Wishing you a very happy Easter, Linda.
    Loved the english gardens. Wow--beautiful!

  9. I like English Country Garden .... gorgeous! I wish you a nice Easter Linda.

  10. Linda, I liked 'Oh, hey' and video of robin, lovely.
    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  19. Happy Easter Linda! Greetings from northern Poland :)

  20. Hello linda
    Thank you for your nice message on my blog.
    Your movies here are great again, even though I can not dance with the music in the second movie because of my back. The gardens are truly beautiful. The movies with the animals are all very nice to see.
    I wish you a very beautiful Easter weekend.
    Greetings, Helma

  21. Hope you get better soon! Enjoyed your latest collection of quotes.

  22. Linda

    kiss kiss

  23. Hi Linda, I am praying that you be well very soon! Wishing you a lovely Easter weekend. I appreciate you!
    Great collection - especially loved those silly birds!!
    Thank you, Linda.

  24. Hi Linda, I am so sorry you are not doing well at this time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Wonderful videos, I love all the bird video's.
    Have a wonderful Easter.

  25. Linda, Sorry to hear about your bout with labyrinthitis. I had to look it up to find out what it was. The effects/symptoms aren't any fun, that's for sure... I hope that you get well soon!

    Love the English country gardens. I was reminded about hollyhocks, something that my grandmother used to have in her garden. We had a hollyhock show up unexpectedly in our garden when we lived in Chicago. We loved it!

    Foggy Mountain Breakdown by Willow Osborne is the type of music that's very popular down here in East Tennessee. Nice rendition! Loved that very smart cockatoo too! Why fly around looking for a drink when an obliging human can serve you?! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  26. love the "being unique" one, that...I DEFINITELY am! catchatwithcarenandcody

  27. My brother gets labyrinthitis. It's debilitating at times for him. I hope it passes quickly for you.

  28. Wow what wonderful videos enjoyed them especially the English garden one and that girl playing the banjo. Great quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Hope you are feeling better. Madeline

  29. Hello Linda, I too wasn't sure what labyrinthitis was and had to look it up. I do hope it passes quickly for you.

    I did like the English Country Garden video.

    Thinking of you and sending get well thoughts and prayers.

    All the best Jan

  30. Happy Easter Linda,
    Enjoyed the English Garden but even more Willow Osborne's finger picking style. Not my usual music so surprised and delighted to like two other videos from that link- the other highlight being Mean Mary singing Iron Horse.
    I normally take pouring honey for a sore throat. Not the same thing but any excuse to take some is never wasted.

  31. I loved all the videos today, Linda. Still smiling over that last one. And I'm a huge fan of Jimmy Rodgers, so the English Garden video was really special.

  32. Wishing you a blessed Easter and a speedy recovery.

  33. This week I have many problems,
    but all videos selected by you make me happy!!
    'If there is no way, creat one.' encourages me!!!
    Thank you, Linda :))


  34. I love the beautiful English Country Gardens and also the lovely song. Cute smart birds! Have a Wonderful Easter weekend!

  35. Do get well soon and hope you are feeling better now.

  36. Nobody is ever too busy...
    That is true.
    Have a good Easter

  38. Wonderful post, dear Linda! I liked the "English Country Garden" video so much! I hope you will be well soon! Happy Easter to you!

    "The best feeling is when someone appreciates everything about you that someone else took for granted." <--- I agree completely!

  64. Oh Linda! I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with labyrinthitis. I had it once, and it is awful. Vertigo is so unpleasant and scary. I was afraid that I had a brain tumor or something dreadful. My doctor was surprised when I showed up with my husband in tow sure that I was going to hear bad news. What a relief it was to find out that I had an inner ear infection following a cold. He gave me some slow gentle exercises to do and an over-the-counter medication (Meclizine HCI) for motion sickness. It cleared up in a few days. But the experience was so miserable that I keep the Meclizine on hand in my medicine cabinet. Fortunately I haven't had it again. Sending you a big hug and a prayer for a quick recovery!
