Not A Fox, But Close Enough
Not A Fox, But Close Enough

We go on vacations to get away from it all, to have fun, and to be happy.

But why do we need to leave our homes to get that?

It seems counter-intuitive to me, but not in a good counter-intuitive way.

I mean, as adults, shouldn’t we make our homes a place where coming home is like an oasis from the real world?

So last night, it was late, and pulling into our long driveway, you could see the two beady eyes immediately, about 30 meters away.

A fox.

I love country living. It often feels like a vacation.

Hearing It 100 Times?

“Hearing something 100 times is not as good as seeing it once”. — Japanese proverb

“It’s not the material things in life that are important”. Most of us have heard this so many times we’ve  lost track, right?

If we know this to be true, that material things aren’t the important thing, why do we work so hard to get so much stuff?  That’s what I want to know.

I’d like to take a risk and ask you readers to leave a comment with your take on this human dilemma.  Happy Halloween.

North, To Alaska?

North, to Alaska? Soon. But not today.

Today, we’ll enjoy the warm Central Florida sunshine and a high temperature of 86 degrees.

Yesterday, we visited the Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom.

Today starts with Church, where my wife and I will lead Children’s Liturgy of the Word for our Church’s elementary school children.  Then I have a meeting with a writer.

Then south, back home.  Enjoy your day.  And keep an eye on the future.  It’s just around the corner, a little north of today.

You’re Not Gonna Believe This

This morning, we turned off the air conditioners for the first time since April! Seriously.

Central Florida daytime temps are expected to be in the 70’s this weekend.  It’s 66 right now at 5AM, so the windows and doors are only cracked open, otherwise it would be too cold.  🙂

How cool is that?  Well, for Central Floridians, it’s HUGE!

We endure the Summers to get to this point in the year.  It will last until April next year.  What’s it like October to April in Central Florida?  Glorious.
