The sun is bright, air crisp and clear, sky blue, remnants of snow cover most of the lawn.  It’s Super Bird Party time today at the bird feeders.

Goldfinches still in winter plumage, chickadees, house finches, juncos, white breasted nuthatches, downy, hairy, and red-breasted woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays, and occasional house sparrows.

Take time to enjoy the world around you.  Live in the “Blue Zones”.

Take Time For The Important Things in Life

We are taking time for the most important things in our lives.  This most basic Blue Zones concept too often gets lost in modern life.

Family is important, especially children and grandchildren.  We are finishing 2 weeks on the west coast with our grown children and our (now 3) grandchildren.  It has been wonderful – most of the time.

Our newest grandchild is indeed a wonder.  The others, and our own children doubtless were too.  This is the first time I have been able to take the time to simply marvel at the wonder of a newborn.  And I don’t even have to change a diaper!

At not quite 3 weeks old, he still is mostly on a cycle of eat-sleep-poop.  But now there are periods of wakefulness as he begins to look at the world around him.  The wonder of a new little person!

Take time to enjoy the wonders of life.

Grandsons are Blue Zones

Cedar Valley Bone Health Institute of Iowa staff gained 2 grandsons this weekend.

Yesterday evening Shari, our receptionist/office lead, welcomed her first.  He was born in Waterloo and she was there to hold him within the first hour.

This afternoon, Grammy and I welcomed our third grandchild, and first from our older boy.  He is in California and we will see him in a week when we go to visit.  For now we have to settle for a video.

Family is a Blue Zone.
