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.

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.

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.

I’m still managing a weekly happy blog. lol Surprises me.    

1.  The Happiness Project  
It makes me happy I’ve been able to carry through on a weekly happiness post.  I have not been a consistent blogger in the recent past.  👍
2.  Super Powers
I have read some things about people’s super powers.   They often challenge the reader to identify a super power of their own.  After some thought I decided one of my super powers is a general feeling of optimism. I am happy with that.
3.  The Eclipse Coffee and Books 
One of my fav places is closing. I’m not happy it is closing.   I will miss the coffees, the espresso martinis, the food, and the atmosphere.  But I am happy that I’m currently living close enough to visit extra  times and try more of their menu offerings before this 16 year old hangout is gone.  I am grateful for all the good times I have had there.

Happy Things Project #10

The Happy Things Project continues.  Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. There will be repetition but Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1.   Safe travel days
Living on the road full time definitely creates a great appreciation for safe travels.   
2.  Meeting new friends on the road 
I encounter many wonderful and interesting people.  I never meet a stranger.  
3.  Unprocessed food
I enjoy starting with fresh, raw fruits and veggies.  Don’t misunderstand, I have not turned my back on processed food.  It’s just isn’t a big part of my diet.  I love pizza delivery.  lol

 The Happy Things Project continues. Once a week I post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now.  I feel there will be repetition.  I feel that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1.  My curious future:  The unknown that is created by every choice in the Now.

2.  Journaling:  I try to write in my journal every day at least once.  I usually wind up writing in it several times a day. Rather than have multiple journals, I have different sections in one:

Gratutude Helps and Heals
– my daily grateful notes 
It is helpful for me to start the day being thankful.

Dream a Little Dream
–  my dream journal
I don’t always know I dream and I don’t always remember my dreams. I write what I remember. 

My Affirmations
– Encouraging words to myself 
Never hurts to think good things about myself.  I have often battled negative self talk.  So I replace it with positive. 

The Card Game
– Each day I pull one Tarot card from the Osho Zen Tarot deck
That is my favorite deck. It’s a Zen thing. Zen is part of the name. Get it. hahahaha 


Phrases and Ideas and Stuff
– A miscellaneous category 
Project ideas, quotes, mykus, coloring and drawing, stuff glued in…this is the junk journal section.  Of course, all the sections are junk journalish to some degree. 

3.   I found an excellent deal on the LUMIX GX8.  I am excited about this new plaything.

Happy Things for this Now.  

1.  Clean laundry, especially sheets 
Life on the road does not always include a an easy way to make clean laundry.  For the most part I can find laundromats.  Sometimes I can’t. Sometimes they cost more than I’m willing to pay. Once upon a time in a magical place known as New Orleans I washed clothes in a laundromat/bar/game room.  Clean clothes, a buzz, and pool for the win that night. 

2.  Five Nights at Freddie’s masks 
My little friend and I have had hours of fun with these inexpensive masks. They were on clearance.  


3.  Warm days and nights 
I am elated that spring is near.  I am elated the weather is warming up.  I am elated the days are growing longer.
I do not thrive in cold weather.  I’m never 💯 % when it’s cold.  I will die in winter.
