Makes a Person Happy, Healthy and Wise

So this said, If I changed my sleep pattern and say went to bed at 12 midnight and got up at 7am would I be more happy, healthy and wise?   I go to bed at 10 pm and wake at 5am and if you do the math it is the same number of hours.  What would be the difference?

I’m going to let you think about that while I make breakfast for our B&B guests, brb.

Question: What is for breakfast this morning…..

Eggs and sausage???

or pancakes????

Can you tell I’m missing Grandchildren 🙂

You think about the reason for early to bed and early to rise, I’ll be right back.


Ok I might have an idea as to why one gets up so early.

Perhaps Benjamin Franklin’s idiom early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise lends some truth. After all, if one goes to bed early he gets quality sleep and is healthy, if one wakes early he starts his day before the rest and therefor is wealthy, and if he did the two things above he is just naturally wise.

Grandpa just thinks I need something to complain about all the time so he tells me. Besides, I’m well asleep when he turns in for the night and he is well asleep when I get up at 5 in the morning.  

If waking up early is a direct cause of productivity then I’m doing nothing when I wake up so early as to not make any noise and wake up our guests in the Bed and Breakfast. However I do find time to take a 3 km walk about the neighbourhood and I discover much when I’m out and about.


Mum had her own sayings and this was one of them!

Happy Hump Day,

I think the heat has gotten to us all. We have record breaking days and according to one news paper it’s been the driest since 1968. Drought has affected many parts of Atlantic Canada, Montreal, Ottawa and other areas as well. If we don’t get some rain soon I think crops will suffer, and some livestock already has apparently as the well ran dry, what a shame.

On the brighter side it has been wonderful skies and great days for an outing as we are going to take a little drive up to one of my favourite areas to be and that would be Souris Beach.

On the way we came across some farm art that I think you will enjoy.

We got away early morning and the mist was just lifting off the fresh plowed fields.

Just for fun I took a picture of this couple driving along enjoying the country side.

Remember I have a thing for old barns, soon to be a thing of the past.

Just one more barn, look the shingles are so worn.

A few stops at other secret spots.

It’s an amazing day the sky is so picturesque 

The beach is perfect and peaceful, with breathtaking beaches in PEI.

We came across some beach art, an old septic system.

Boys they always plan to have fun.

Back on the road we come across an eagles nest.

Finally we arrive at the beach

It seems the jelly fish have arrived as well.

However the sea glass we find makes up for the Jelly fish on the beach.

Have you found any sea glass on the beaches you have explored? We are always sure to find Sea Glass on the shores of Souris Beach.


Take care,
