Everyday Magic

4 Comments

I follow the Magic in the Everyday blog. It is cool. You might like it too. It’s upbeat and fun.

Recently the author posted a list of things that made her feel lucky and she challenged her readers to give it a try.

Here is my list of things that make me feel lucky.

1. I am still alive. My pacemaker keeps the ticker ticking.
2. I live in my rolling home and go where I please.
3. I am active and in pretty good physical shape.
4. I feel free.
5. I don’t need permission.
6. I have sufficient income.
7. My time is my own.
8. I drive a wonderful Jeep Wrangler.
9. I love and I am loved.
10. I love my lifestyle.

These also things that make me happy and things for which I am grateful.

What makes you feel lucky?

Peace and love and luck!

1.  Safe Water

Knowing the water is tested and safe is great. Definitely a happy thing.

2.  Quote of the day

Talking about himself, the child said, “My life is awesome!” That will put a smile on my face.

3. Turkey

I like turkey. I look forward to it at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Today I cooked some. Yep, it’s not Thanksgiving or Christmas. I rubbed the 3 pound turkey (beast)* breast with Cajun seasoning and popped it in the slow cooker. Five hours later it was moist, tender, and delicious.

Gratitude Helps and Heals

I am grateful for the opportunities I have to travel and for the random turkey moments.

Peace and love

1.  Yellow Hammer RV

Life on the road entails finding places to land for varying periods of time. I managed a spot here for a week or so while I visit my cardiologist. I’m not sure where is next. That’s ok.

2.  Vero

I’m enjoying this new social media outlet.

3. My Mentor

My mentor has come to play for a few days. It’s always good when he visits.

Gratitude Helps and Heals

I am grateful for safe travels. I’ve driven a lot more than usual in the last couple of weeks.

Much love to you.

Starting a new year out right.

1.  NOLA-My Spirit City

My sweet friend Tina recently noticed I was starting the new year in my Spirit City. She said that was good for me. She is so right. I am elated to be beginning this magical, earth grounding, transformative year in New Orleans LA. My spirits soars.

2.  A Sunny Day

As I type this I’m sitting in the gazebo at Jude Travel Park soaking the rays from the first sunny day in a week. It’s not really warm in the wind, but here in the sun it’s great with coffee.

3.  Making silly videos

I have so fallen behind on silly videos. I’m excited and happy by the possibility of getting back to making that content. I have so much foolishness to share. lol

Happy in the month of thanksgiving.

1.  MBWR

Magnolia Branch Wildlife Refuge is a hidden gem in Central Alabama. We have have a large campsite. The (boathouse)* bathhouse is adequate. There are great bike riding spaces, a nice lake, a river, and we have cell service. It’s a bit remote which is great.

2.  A travel companion

I’ve enjoyed having a traveling companion for the last few weeks. It always seems like more fun sharing the adventure.

3.  New Front Curtains

Season of Thanksgiving

Leave a comment

A little thankfulness is a good thing. On this Thanksgiving weekend I am thankful for my rolling home and safe travels. I am thankful I am alive (very)*. I am thankful for my family.

It's another fun day to be alive!  Here are some happinesses from my life to yours.  

1.  Ollies
Ollies was a lot of fun.  I had never been in one and exploring the merchandise was a grand adventure.  They say the selection changes daily so repeat visits might be fun.
2.  Those days when things just go right 
We all have them.  We are in the flow.  We are on top of our game.  Things work out. I love those days. 

3.  My toe
I  have been having problems with one of my toes. It started a couple of months ago when the toe swelled up and hurt. I am so happy it is no longer swollen or painful.

It’s another fun day to be alive!  Here are some happinesses from my life to yours.  

1.  Painted Rocks
You know the ones, the surprises from strangers.

New Hope
Eat More Beef painted rock
Every time I find one a huge grin spreads across my face.  Sometimes I even laugh out loud. 

2.  A real shower 
After a month of showering in the RV it was wonderful to enjoy the luxury of great water pressure, room to turn and move my arms without bumping the shower walls, and lots of hot water.  WOW! 😃

3.  Last Day at The Eclipse 
I will not be back before they close.  Actually when you read this they will be closed.   I’m happy to be here one more time.  This is melancholy happiness but happiness all the same.

Happy Happy
Joy Joy
Another happy blog. 

1.  Babies 
I almost had a wonderful weekend with my <1 year old grandson.   Talk about fun.  All that beginner’s mind, curiosity, unconditional love, unbridled joy, and newness is awesome.  I can’t help but happy being with someone so fresh from “what is not this”. Maybe I’ll get another opportunity.  
2.  OD – The Order of Disorder 
It doesn’t get much more Zen than this.  I want to be a boobiesattva.   
3.  Answer change
I am usually carrying around at least two cameras. As a result I’m often asked, “Are you a photographer?”   I’m much happier now that I answer “yes”.   That doesn’t mean I’m a good photographer, but I do travel around taking photos on an almost daily basis.  That is one of my primary creative activities.

Positivity Week: Day 5

6 Comments

My friend Cherokeewriter has been doing Positivity Week for several years. I try to participate each year.

Day 5: Positivity in Paintings
Like writing, art can can stir emotions and that means it can make you feel positive or happy. On this day, share one or more of your favorite paintings.

As some of you know, my daughter, Starr, is an accomplished artist working out of Oak Ridge TN. As a result, my life is filled with wonderful paintings and other pieces of her art.

Once upon a time my son, Starr, and I were eating in an out of the way restaurant in Gatlingburg TN. Hanging over the table was a painting we called the groper fish. Sometime later, Starr gifted me her interpretation of that. I love it.
