We have always been a little "into" turtles!
Thanks in part to hubs and his younger days of
Our summers always revolve around talk of the
how many you think you can snatch "bare handed"
will THIS be the year to catch Myrtle the Turtle?
Past years catch...
practicing for the turtle races or maybe during the actual race
~since he is wearing his authentic button~
Then I came across this comic....and it matched my mornings thoughts exactly!!
The morning was perfect.
I wanted to get out and walk/jog.
I did for 4 miles in 49 minutes!!!
YES...I think a turtle passed me by...but SO WHAT!
As I walked I thought~
Why do we want to keep going faster?
Why don't we take time to watch the water at the creek?
To listen to the birds chirp?
(Instead of wearing the iPod...which I did not wear this morning!)
To enjoy the cement that has been covered with ice and snow FOREVER!
To look at the bare trees with the buds just peeking out....
Everything around us is so much better than the TV, computer, iPod, phone etc...
we need to get out more and move SLOWER? to enjoy the surroundings that
we have waited a long 6 months for to enjoy!
Be a TURTLE!
What a concept?!!
See you can even win prizes when hanging with turtles!
Who wouldn't want to hang with these two more often?
I know I do.
