There Are Days

Hi girls! 
 I was thinking...there are days that just don't go the way you think they will. 
We've had so many of those lately.

You know, the days when you have a long list and a plan but things 
haywire for one reason or another.

It could make you crazy but what's the point in that?
Stop and appreciate the little things.
Make a new plan. :)

That's my frame of mind today.
What's yours?

I stay at home most of the time, so my plans are generally things I do here.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

Loving the polka dot creamer! I hope your tomorrow is better than your today!

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Hey Stacey, I'm telling you, this has been the busiest year with unexpected things coming up it seems every week... So yes, I have a long list of things not getting done as quickly as I'd like. I'm always making a new plan. But I agree with you, it's nothing to get all crazy about. Hope you have a good week!

Barb @ Bella Vista said...

Stacey, it is so important to appreciate the little things...changes everything.

Have a wonderful day.


ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Pretty photos Stacey!
I had so much on my plate tonight with running my kids all around I thought my head was going to explode...I had to stop and remind myself it's all good :-)

Laura said...

You are very wise, but I knew that!

My go to say these days is-

It is what it is.

it is.

Now I'm laughing.


Dee said...

Stacey, I couldn't agree more and what's the point of stressing out? Honestly, I don't know if I'll ever see everything scratched off on my to do list anyway... lol.

Have a great week... :)

Barb @ Bella Vista said...

Stacey, thanks for letting me know about being a No Reply Blogger. Who knew? Hopefully, I have corrected the problem. Yikes!


NanaDiana said...

First of all -thanks for popping by and leaving me a sweet comment today.
What a pretty post- those flowers are just gorgeous! I did have a list today and got most of it done --- for a change! lol xo Diana

Donna said...

Agree. Don't sweat the small stuff, and have a "Plan B" :)

Nancy's Notes said...

It does happen, thankfully today was not one! One glitch, I could not sleep and I'm awake and it's 1:00 am!

I was expecting my aunt and cousin to come for a visit on Sunday and spend the night. Instead, they arrived on Saturday and stayed 2 nights. When your aunt is 90 years old and has never visited your house, you welcome her with open arms - and go kayaking with her. But, my weekend was totally thrown off.

Hope your week runs smoothly.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Stacey, I think we all have days like this once in a while. They do throw us off, but you are right, just go with it and make a new plan.
Pretty pics you share. Even the little bug on the yellow rose is precious!
Have a great day!

Hi Stacey,
I agree sometimes you just have to put the list aside and enjoy the day for what it is. Change in plans can be a good thing. Love the pics of the roses soooo pretty.

April said...

I try and appreciate the little things every single day! Pretty shots, Stacey!

Sandi B said...

Hi Stacy
Thanks for visiting my Blog! I am so happy to have found yours and you also have great ideas. I am a Mom to 2 grown sons and love all things that have to do with decorating and cooking. So nice to meet you:)

Sonia said...

Your vignette is so sweet (love the red polka dots)and what a great attitude you have when things go wrong.
I think flexibility and positive attitudes make the world a better place!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

We're always saying we're on Plan B, C....and on and on depending on how many changes were made. But that's life I guess. I hope you have a beautiful week my friend. Sweet hugs, Diane

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I think we all have days like that. I try to "roll with it" but it's hard sometimes, especially for such a strict list maker like me. :) Love those little birdies! Are they salt and pepper shakers? So cute!

Blondie's Journal said...

It goes with the territory...and it's a big territory. I've tried to learn to let it not control my feelings. I guess I'll always be working on that though! lol! Hang in there.

I could hear Amen's all over the world!!


Just a little something from Judy said...

My frame of mind right now is, to work up the energy needed to pick up my three oldest grandchildren from school and keep them for the evening. Your pretty vignette inspired me today, and your words made me smile.

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

So far this year has not gone to plan, and not for good reasons either. However, there has to be some positives soon and I will embrace them even more and treasure them. Thank you for the inspiration x

Eilis said...

We make plans and God laughs....

Kathleen Grace said...

I've had a solid two weeks of that very thing, I agree, you just have to make a new plan and wait for things to calm down a little. Hope things are calming down a bit for you. Have a great weekend!

Jaybird said...

The little things often turn out to be the very best things!!! I hope you are having a much better day today, and will have a wondrous weekend!!
Be blessed!!

Pat said...

My work days never seem to go as planned. I try to make the best of it and go on. Try to keep a good attitude but I love it when 5:00 comes around and it's time to go home.

Liz Hockamier said...

Oh For Sure! Making a new plan .... daily. :) LOL
You just never know what's going to turn up. :)

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Stacey, stopping back by again to say hi. Hope you are enjoying our perfect weather mixed with a bit of rain now and then. More coming this week but the gardens are loving it.
Happy May. Hugs CM

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

And now I hear that song in my mind "mama said there'd be days like this" :)

Gypsy Heart said...

Agreed! :) No need to cause extra stress and tension for ourselves. The flowers are so pretty and I'm loving that red & white polka dot pitcher.
