Sometimes it's easy to dwell on the negative... the whole glass is half empty thing. Years ago someone told me "I am responsible for my own happiness." Huh. Up until that point in life, I hadn't really looked at happiness that way. That it was my own responsibility.
I'd kind of forgotten that one over the years. With the grey, dreary days for weather and the grey, dreary economy it's a good time to put this one to work again.
So this past Friday, with a new outlook and the day off of work, I went looking for my happiness. It started outdoors. After days of rain, the sun was shining at Red Gate Farm...
Flowers were blooming, even with the cooler temperatures. You just needed to know where to look.
The Rhodie has started her spring wake up.
When I stepped out my back door, I saw 2 Great Blue Herons fly over our place. One kept flying, the other stopped on top of the neighbors tree. "Hello there Mr. Heron. Thanks for the photo opportunity!"
Doesn't purple always make you smile?
And Cady, well her tail is healing nicely... and the fur is starting to grow back too.
I was thrilled to get this in the mail... there are some of the BEST ideas inside the "bookazine". I say, let's have a party this summer just so I can try them out!
And if the rain wants to come back, the grey skies... well I'll just create my own little beach, sunshine and happiness in a jar.
Starting the week off with a smile,
