Hello friends, I know you haven't seen me quite so often.
I've missed working on my blog but my life's journey has
brought me new experiences and shuffling my time has
been an adjustment. Spending time with my grandson
is a blessing and every moment I can share with Ethan
I will take and give thanks. I'm also posting on Instagram
daily wandering through the different galleries of like-
minded people and find this enjoyable as well. Spring
will be here before you know it so planning for my garden
is going to be foremost in my schedule. Thanks for the
understanding and enjoy five ramblings. Hugs go out
to you all. (insert big red heart and a smile) See you soon.
Happiness is a blooming Hyacinth. The intoxicating sent is
amazing and can be yours just by visiting your grocery or
big box store. I found several pots of bulbs that had about
4 inches of green top growth and a tiny flower cluster inside.
I placed the pots into decorative containers and put them in
front of a bright window taking care to avoid direct heat and
sunlight. January is a perfect time for blooming and they
will last for about a month. I find the purple color to be my
favorite, then the pink. It's best just to toss the bulbs into the
compost bin after flowering as most forced blooms have used
up their energy and will not bloom again.
You might remember this. My word power board has a
word I particularly like and I'll give the definition and show
a picture, offering my interpretation. Anyway, I felt inspired
to create this board after seeing something similar somewhere
out in social-media land. And, I'm pretty impressed with my-
self that I figured out (using Pic Monkey) how to finger-draw
these arrows. Ok…
adjective. [feel-goo d]
Informal definition from Dictionary.com, intended to make
one happy or satisfied.
Simple right? Well since real life isn't always simple or good,
maybe by doing these 4 things I will promote the intended
good feeling. For example… exercise for me involves walking
and gardening. Walking a specified time helps me mentally
because I'm a clock watcher, and gardening includes all
aspects of yard work. So when I can be outside doing
something, I am a happy person...ergo I feel good. I could
have put lots of sub arrows of things that always make me
happy like Sam (the Pug), grandson Ethan, coffee, wine,
hubby Ron, reading, etc., I feel these would fit into my
positive thinking topic.. another example, if i've spent time
with my grandson, I purposely think positive thoughts of
that experience and that makes me feel good. Make sense?
How about this, the topics are purposeful expectations for
yourself. WOW!!! I need to move on.
Coloring makes me happy. Deb Strain inspirational coloring
books are available on Amazon and the craft stores.
Thoughts of spring are on my mind. Hydrangeas look a little
drab and brown when compared with summer's colors added.
A little winter texture not so bad right now but really want its
true beauty. What do you think?
This outdoor wall sculpture was a gift from my husband
many years ago. It hangs outside year-round, and I still
love it as much now as when he gave it to me. Just a little
reminder Valentines Day will soon be upon us. Remember
