What Makes You Happy

My sweet husband did this when he and Hope (border collie) went on an early walk and I saw it later walking with Hope and Joy (sheltie) – it just makes me smile – makes my heart smile – a love note in the snow – takes a moment – means so much…

 

Our son texted asking if we wanted to zoom…so thoughtful.

Mountain Magic

 

Rainbow Clouds

 Nature almost always plays a part in a really good day for me. This morning’s walk on our nature trail included a rainbow cloud. It is a fairly rare phenomenon. It’s a little miracle to me that I was in the right place at the right time to get to see this.

Measuring Success

In graduate school, I had a professor who, for whatever reason, didn’t want to give me an ‘A’. I was three points away from my ‘A’. I KNEW what was coming – and I was correct:

                                                         

“Professor, you said that if we came to every class and always participated that we would get extra credit.”

There’s Magic in Ordinary Days

 

In a world with global warming, Covid, war, bullying…my love and I live in the mountains, enjoy each other and try not to think too much…

                                                                                                                                               

The autumn color is awe-inspiring. My flower boxes against the golden aspen can’t be ignored.

Happiness Is A Choice

What’s 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.

New Year’s Day 2022

WORKING AT LIFE

 

 

New Year’s Day 2022 this is my view in our tiny mountain village at 9,000 feet. Most people just want to visit in the summer. So this peacefulness is blessed.

 

 

What’s MOST IMPORTANT to me:

 

Continually:

 

Connecting with my husband

 

Staying healthy – physically, mentally, spiritually

 

Publishing my work & connecting with my readers

 

 

 

I don’t know if I can keep up this pace but my goal is to keep at it:

 

 

Christmas Eve service with husband

                                                                                                                 

 

 

New Year’s Eve dinner with husband – shared my gratitude jar entries for 2021 and we laughed, remembered and were thankful

 

 

 

We shared dessert – I took 1 bite of each

 

 

 

Husband & I are continually working at us.
