Happiness Is A Choice

What Good Going On With You?


Little things delight me: a walk in nature,  an unexpected snowfall, a good book, fresh flowers, a tasty meal, happiness is a choice…


We live here! This still amazes and delights me! My husband and I took our border collie Hope on this stunning, Saturday morning,  walk in the mountains. Most people are happy to visit but don’t want to live here and that’s what makes this place so special. If everyone lived here we’d be just another town with all the ‘conveniences’ and noise and congestion of everywhere.


I’ve been going through a difficult time for a long while now – no doubt will again, such is life – but today I feel so carefree, lighthearted – as if on vacation.

This is a sad story that’s hard to put down. This novel is fiction that reads like real life – a reminder that life can change in an instant.





This was yesterday evening’s dinner – so delicious! We get Hello Fresh sometimes – the ingredients are delivered to our door and my husband happily cooks.


This evening’s dinner looks delicious! I believe we have two new favorites in these meals. It’s so much fun to have something different for dinner and for us, dine at home. We are happy watching a movie as we dine, eating in our sunroom while listening to music or an interesting podcast or eating on our deck overlooking the river and Crystal Peak.



Purple tulips from my husband – just because – he knew I’d like them!


We enjoyed the recent spring snowfall…



Mother Nature make stunning snow art…


So fun to see animal prints in the untouched snow…


The blue and white day was just magical…made me feel so happy!





I’m reading The Untethered Soul by Michael A Singer. Here’s a radical thought: he says happiness is a choice. Of course it’s easy to be happy when things are going well but stuff is going to happen. The purpose of your life is to enjoy and learn from your experiences. We were born and we are going to die. During the time in between we get to choose if we are going to be happy. You can be happy just to be alive. I’m working on it. How about you?
