Are you happy yet... or still?

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence. Aristotle
Sometimes others say what we are thinking better than we can.... sometimes we figure something out only to find out that someone long before us already thought it and expressed it well.

Eating can help make us happy.... take , for instance, tree ripened grapefruit. If you've never had one you are missing something fantastic. I miss my grapefruit tree that I had in Florida.
Here is a gift from one of my friends... they were tree ripened in Palm Springs ... ahhhhhh

Peaceful Wanderings

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring is right around the corner ... might snow again anyway but who cares. We love snow. We Love wandering up the hill side dueing the snow.... It's so peaceful up there.

Look for the advantages

To every disadvantage there is a corresponding advantage. -W. Clement Stone

There is a group of homeschoolers over in Arizona that have embarked on a project of forming their own special choir ..... creatively they called themselves the Homonizers   (home-onizers)... a take-off from harmonizers.
Some may see a disadvantage of home schooling being all by yourself studying in a dark corner of your own house without the social opportunities of a public shcool ... but here these kids turned it into an advantage... they have their own choir the way they want it... singing the songs they like .... where they like... when they like.
Hooray for them... and good luck.
