Share the Joy: Simple Pleasures





So, let's see. . . .  where's my joy?
Let me think.

Ok, you'll think I'm nuts,
but I love going to the market
where things are all organized and colorful.
It's a feast for the eyes and nose. . .
and even the taste buds,
since there are usually free samples of interesting cheeses
and fresh fruit.


I'm enjoying my new bicycle.
This isn't mine --- my new bike is a bright blue
and customized with a shortened crank and pedals
since my left knee complained about the longer ones
(it's had four surgeries, poor thing, 
since I blew it out skiing 20 years ago).
But I love this cheery pink and especially
the basket full of flowers.
My basket -- purchased yesterday and not yet hung in place --
will be carrying a soft, furry puppy
instead of flowers.
Too bad we can't make it all the way to this cupcake dispensary.



Seeing the deer in my back yard always makes me stop
and smile and hold my breath. . . . 
not move too quickly so I don't cause them to bound away
in fright. I'm just learning about deer-resistant plants,
but hey --- everybody has to eat.

Share the Joy: Birthday Margaritas



This is my birthday week, 
so in my haste to go partying with friends
and drink my annual Margarita



I totally forgot to hit publish on the post.

Things are cooking in my life
and I have two families interested in the house,
so perhaps I'll have an offer in hand soon.
That, my friends, would indeed be a cause 
for a joyful celebration.


How are you cultivating joy?

Share the Joy -- Internet Woes



Sorry this post is later than usual.
We had a total internet outage,
apparently due to a tow truck taking out 
the main cable line from Seattle to points west.

No internet.
No phone service.

It was like going back to the old days.

Harraumph!

We're back to normal now, thank goodness.

I guess that's cause for joy.
