Second Star to the Right Adventure II

Pull out your Spyglass, Cutlass, Fairy Wings, or Pixie Dust because it’s that time again to enter the world of your imagination.

Second Star invite

Last Year’s Adventure was my summer highlight, so I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to host another Enchanting Blog Party for the Young and Young at Heart.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.                Albert Einstein

This Adventure is our family’s way of making up for the lack of Holiday’s in August.  Sure you can celebrate that it’s National Catfish Month or that the…

8th is ‘Sneak a Zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch day (which I would love by-the-way)  or…

13th is Blame Someone Else Day

18th is Bad Poetry Day (Who makes this stuff up?) 

So granted I think a Second Star to the Right Adventure is merited by the fact that we need to take time to smell the roses, and enjoy life and the little treasures all around us.

‘But Peter’, said Wendy.  ‘How do we get to Never Land?’

Summer 308

It’s quite simple…

Summer 1764

Think Happy Thoughts… and then act on them.  Between now and August 21st let your inner child take flight and have an adventure or two or a dozen,  Then on the 21st you can blog about the Adventure(s) and we’ll all link up and Visit Neverland or Wonderland (whichever your preference) together.  And yes I’ll have some magical more Magical gifts that I’ll be giving away to some lucky participants.

Can’t you just feel the Pixie Dust sprinkling down on you now?

Ideas for Enchanting Fun:

Find some Pirate Treasure,

Build Sandcastles,

Spring 1768

Watch the Clouds or…

Sleep under the Stars.

And like a child don’t forget to find the beauty all around, be it in the sky or under your feet.


So embrace the spirit of imagination within, find joy and happiness in the small and simple things.  Then come tell us how it is you keep a youthful heart.  That way we can all find just how it is, that we really do find Never Land.  Remember that this is a family friendly blog so go light on the Pirate Rum and keep your content Clean or I’ll be sending Hook your way.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your Father In-Law's comment on "practicing" doctors. I've heard it before and know just how true it is. I also know of those who just wont stop until they've exhausted every avenue and come up with results. God bless 'em.

About your reminded me of how much I've been wanting to do a little backyard camping. Our budget is....well, not working. So much so that there is no budget. Ya gotta laugh. So, after reading your post, I'm planning a backyard campout...I get a feeling we might be able to get a few little creatures to join us as a surprise too. As they say, you only live once and you gotta make the best of it. Now...where's that darn tent!
