Day #40- no damage from yesterday's celebrations!
Sunday, February 04, 2018      1 comments

After stuffing myself with a black bean burger, sweet potato fries, a raspberry crumble with handmade ice cream and a Blue Heron craft beer yesterday I slept like a baby last night and have hit the road running today. No guilty feelings knowing... Read more
Day #39- Celebrating
Saturday, February 03, 2018      3 comments

How fitting that blog #39 happens to fall on my birthday, the perpetual #39, lol. As someone recently quipped "be happy to be on top of the green grass rather than under it!" And how wonderful to be taken for lunch at my favourite local restau... Read more
Day #38- Thanks Sam, maybe...
Friday, February 02, 2018      4 comments

Nova Scotia's resident groundhog, Shubenacadie Sam, was coaxed out of his burrow at 8:00 am, AST and groggily proclaimed that Spring will be early this year. Are we doing the happy dance? Not quite; more of a scurry as we are under a flash fre... Read more
Day #37- A new month to celebrate
Thursday, February 01, 2018      2 comments

Hello February! The "perfect" month, 3 out of 4 years exactly four weeks long, the month where a rodent tells us if we might see an early Spring or heaven forbid six more weeks of winter and finally my birthday month at which time I will once a... Read more
Day #36- Still happy?
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      2 comments

Our storm did a bit of a U-turn overnight and dumped another load of snow so once again I have had a date with the shovel. Cleared out in time to get the garbage to the road for pickup, cleared around the bird feeders so the pheasants can forag... Read more
Day #35- Happy in a blizzard?
Tuesday, January 30, 2018      2 comments

I woke to the sound of roaring wind. Snow had been forecast for overnight and was delivered followed by high winds. Schools, flights, ferries cancelled and road crews gearing up to start clearing the mess as folks still need to get to work if ... Read more

Monday, January 29, 2018      2 comments

1/3 of the way through my 100 day challenge, I am learning a great deal about myself and what happiness means to me. My days are busy and I need fuel to keep my energy levels constant and that starts with my favourite meal of the day, breakfast... Read more
Day #33- going outside of one's comfort zone
Sunday, January 28, 2018      2 comments

We are creatures of habit and often tend to avoid physical and mental challenges. Unfortunately by doing that we stop learning and miss out on a world of exciting opportunities. We put our feet up, eat the same old foods and let our lives beco... Read more
Day #32- happiness through movement
Saturday, January 27, 2018      3 comments

I love to move, to use my legs for locomotion, to talk with my hands, to boogie to music, to dig and haul and kneel in my garden. I get restless and bored easily if I have to sit still for periods of time. I am a "doer", totally unfit for any ... Read more
Happy #31- Finding balance at maintenance
Friday, January 26, 2018      5 comments

Leaders of the At Goal or Maintaining team have asked the question " what does maintenance mean for you?" For me the answer is BALANCE. Four years ago we received the news that my husband's prostate cancer had metastasized to bone and that f... Read more

Day #28- being lazy and why not?
Tuesday, January 23, 2018      3 comments

Great core workout early this morning followed by breakfast and vacuuming, then it was time to get in my daily walk. I had planned for a 45 minute session and managed to finish 25 minutes before our light snowfall suddenly changed to ice pellet... Read more
Day #27- High tech?...not even close
Monday, January 22, 2018      4 comments

I am a Luddite, partly because I don't exactly trust the latest technological whiz bangs but mostly because I don't need them to "enhance" my lifestyle. One of my kids has all the latest gadgets at what seems to me to be great expense for littl... Read more
Day #26- Eating local
Sunday, January 21, 2018      4 comments

Today is the start of the second quarter of my 100 day "happy challenge". The sun is shining and I had a robin in the yard this morning which means that their flocks are gradually moving out of the shelter of the deep bush. There are lots of w... Read more
