A task in my Happify track this week was the Walk of Inspiration: Take a meditative walk in a place that always inspires your best ideas. It could be a busy street, a hiking trail, or even the mall. (Hey, great ideas can come from anywhere.) Walk slowly at first, with eyes on the ground.... Continue Reading →
May 23rd – Gastronomical Beauty!
A blissfully uneventful day at work. That will change tomorrow as we now have less than 48 hours to the software upgrade changeover. It felt like the calm before the storm today really. I was able to listen to the audio version of the entire module of lessons that I had read yesterday. A great... Continue Reading →
Let the sun shine!
Saturday version of Friday beauty. Some pictures from this week in the back yard. I know daffodils are supposed to be February flowers, but these mini daffodil bulbs that I bought several years ago can't wait that long. They are also becoming more and more prolific year to year. The spikes poked out in... Continue Reading →
Friday beauty – Merry Christmas!
My favorite view of tree. I love the way the tree lights reflect on the floors & side door, that some of the outside lights are visible through the window to the backyard, and that Chip is resting on one of the kitty mats. Wishing you and your families a peaceful, relaxed Christmas weekend filled... Continue Reading →
Friday Beauty – winter wonderland

I admit to being exceptionally thin skinned in that regard. From afar however - gorgeous! The Boy is currently at home fighting a winter cold. Rain is due... Continue Reading →

Friday Beauty – Mood Reflection
Not a bad week. But certainly a weird, out of focus week. So there is color, because it's very pretty all around me. Twinkly lights are everywhere. At work. Inside & outside my house. On web pages & avatars - the holidays are in full swing.! But a sinus headache day on Tuesday threw off... Continue Reading →
Friday beauty – cloud colors
Some fog off on the horizon, but otherwise everything is a brilliant, deep blue. Contrast that with the same time of day in early January when a very muggy heat wave rolled through. Rain rolls back into town this weekend - unfortunately creating an adventure for the Breast Cancer 3 Day walkers this... Continue Reading →
Friday Beauty – in the eye of the beholder
I kept it traditional yesterday, but I can't resist sharing a couple of more politically oriented Veteran's Day today - and yes, I consider these beautiful because sometimes it takes a proper visual representation of an issue to get a very very critical point to be made: And one more traditional representation of beauty (in...
