Oh Shirley,
That's such good plan.
I know this year is hard for you.
I admire your attitude and do believe staying busy has proven to lengthen life.
I think being able to make money doing something you love goes a long way towards being happy.
However I get very little work now I'm about to reach the peak of that hill. I'll be over that hill in 18 months and 9 days, but who's counting? LOL

Love that photo Taggets!

What makes me happy, is balance, albeit one of my own interpretation! For example, spending 10 hours a day in my garden surrounded by blissful dirt, creativity and life falls in the balance range for me, where as working in an office the same amount would nudge me towards the grumpy side!

Good friends make me happy, I call them my chosen family and they are!

While some would consider me a little under middle income, I consider myself a person of wonderful luck and wealth and am enjoying my first home I purchased at age 45. I really adore the house and garden. The garden is a creative process that ..well makes me happy! I try new and unorthodox things in the garden frequently.

While those stand out, there are many contributions to my happiness, good job, wonderful co workers, the allure of jungles, keeping up with the bills etc------

I'm up early to initiate OPERATION SPRING CLEAN!!..

Cheers,
Rj

While I am not as successful as Randy, my garden gives me great pleasure to the point of keeping me mostly sane. This winter has been particularly hard on it and we still have several weeks to go before the effects will be known. This morning a pink ananome and one little swiss chard is blooming. Predictions are for more temps below freezing this coming week so I am still just peering through the windows. The poppy seeds I broadcast last fall are thriving. Will be extra beautiful when they bloom. I can hardly wait.

How could I forget the joy of the 3 year old great-grandaughter. She thinks I am wonderful and I know she is.

Christi,
I too am expecting more freeze here in Jacksonville.
I took last year off from gardening so all that cold left me with a clean slate.
Now I know those Poppies are happy and will be gorgeous this spring.
A kind gentleman is sending some Brug cuttings this week, I'll get those rooted before summer.
;)

Brinda I try hard to have a good attitude. Sandy just will not let me do anything else. She makes it her game plan to keep me busy with fun things. The deck is blooming with our winter flowers. Bird seed abounds for the numerous birds in the yard. We have started identifying them. We have new ones this year. We had a special dinner for she and I in memory of PP last night. Yesterday would have been our 50th anniversary. We almost made it. Heaven Sent fifty red roses a beautiful cake and champagne. We took him new flowers. She said PP was with us and we would celebrate. We did and only cried once all night. She was proud of me. We listened to Glass Tiger's Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone, Had our cry and then just had a pleasant night with Grey's Anatomy. Friday we leave for our trip to Arkansas. Busy Busy Busy. Something to look forward to. Try it. I will post a pic of my roses and the cake after our Who Dat party tonight. Shirleyt

One of the secrets for me at this stage of life is having a house and having it paid for.
I was thinking earlier this evening about how I need to just go ahead and make it my perfect place.
Now is such a good time to do it. The yard is freeze dried for the first time in 10 years.
It's the perfect time to regroup.
Time to repurpose all my outside space for when I may not be able to do it the same way I have for years.
To make my gardens more food productive and easier to control my weeds.
Rooms I did ten years ago need to have total redos.
That's the kitchen and bath.
Thanks for stoppiing in and posting here.

I have read many posts both here and on DG remarking about how different the garden will be in the future. I, too, am rethinking a lot of the hard and difficult work I have made for myself.

What makes me happy?
Reading Barefoot's stories.
Finding a Christmas Cactus Blooming, even in Feb.
Finding that $100 bill I misplaced last April....still waiting on this one. lol
Being FORGIVEN by my best friend.
Being alive right now and being able to provide for myself.
Opening a box and finding a surprise, even when I packed that box back when...
Solving a man's problem with the humble pride of a quiet *grin* lady.
Getting a great parking spot.
Just being grateful I grin 95% of any day.
Having faith.
Knowing God is good all the time.
Knowing all the time God is good,
Being here amongst the Cubies.
