Do watch commercials and grade them on their effectiveness?
Why I do I do not know, but I do.
One such commercial that has struck me so funny lately is the
Bart Reagor played football at Texas Tech and while he might have been a great player and now a great car salesmen...he's not much of an actor...but he tries so hard and that's the thing I like best about him.
In his latest over animated commercial, he asks if you are pumped about your car...do you go out and look at it and feel like you can't wait to jump in it and drive it? If not...WHY NOT?
I think this is how we should feel about the place we live
I have lived in many a fixer upper--8 to be exact--
homes that began quite humbly, including this one
but no matter what house I was living in and working on, there was only one thing that it had to be and that thing was
today, I live in the house that I will live in forever
and I am pretty pumped about that
I look at it a lot from all angles
I never hesitate to enjoy that hard work that we have put into it
TEAM PURA VIDA
Mr. P.V. mows his grass, with a push mower, once a week
I wash the windows, on a ladder, myself
I feed the roses epsom salt mixed in water often
my nails are proof
and when it's fall, I find big pumpkins and use flicker bulbs
and think about the kids who drive by and wish they could live here when they grow up
just like I did when I was 8
I consider it a privilege to clean the muck out of my fountain
I consider it a privilege for Mr. PV to do that too when it's his turn
you can't see my comfy chair, but I sit here often
with a glass of wine and wait on the butterflies to eat my parsley
yes, I am pumped about my house
but I was pumped about each one of them while I was there
if you're not pumped?
just a little bit of seed...
