100 Happy Days #27


I mean…YOGA!! I’ll admit, I’ve never tried it, never really given it a chance. And so here I am thinking that maybe…just maybe a slower, more relaxed approach might just help me get moving a bit. Hopefully my knee will cooperate and I’ll be the neighborhood yogi in a matter of weeks. Heh, heh.

Hey, wait…


what does that say? “…for INFLEXIBLE people.” What kind of lame-o negative affirmation is that?! Ok, my clever transposing brain will auto correct that title this very minute. From now on, it will read–to my brain at least, “Essential Yoga For Greater Flexibility.” Much, much better.

Good grief.

Somebody needs an editor.

~ Love Life ~


“Don’t be gloomy. Do not dwell on unkind things. Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face. ‘Accentuate the positive.’ Look a little deeper for the good. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life.”

–Gordon B. Hinckley


Hot Air Balloons?

Did anybody notice that there was no post for the 4th of July Balloon Festival?


Well, that, my friends is because we were totally ready to go at 5:30 am but when we arrived at the field…


all the people and cars were going the other direction.


Apparently, there was too much cloud cover and too much wind so the whole darn shootin’ match was canceled and everyone was heading back home.


Which pretty much means that this year the Hot Air Balloon Festival was just, you know….


Yeah, I crack myself up.


Luckily, even in a dreadful crisis such as this, we still know how to behave.

It was a good day.
