60 Seconds Away

Happiness is 60 seconds away!

Want to feel great all day long? Send a quick e-mail praising or thanking someone you know!

According to a recent Harvard research, people who sent a grateful e-note every workday for three weeks

were significantly happier as a result!

The reason’s simple: Even a brief online exchange reaffirms your bond with others, and social support triggers feelings of happiness!

I found this little tidbit of smiles in my Woman’s World Magazine, my hubby grabbed for me from our local grocery store. It warms my heart when I can send a note to a friend and knowing it made them smile.

There have been many times after checking my email and knowing someone has thought of me, it has lifted my spirits.

Have a wonderful weekend.

A Little Bit More

Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more~ Dr. Seuss


This photo was taken by our son while he was truck driving.  Thank-you my Son and safe travels. May God keep you safe always. I love you.


It’s Christmas time.

We celebrate it in our own way.

My Hubby and I find the stores commercialize Christmas way too much.

I like to keep Christmas fun and more relaxing.

When asked what I wanted for Christmas I said, “I am so blessed already”.

I have a grateful heart.

My wish for you is that you are healthy, happy and find something that warms your heart.



Refuse to let heavy traffic and long lines dampen your Christmas spirit.

Being at the GYM this morning helps me throughout my days of the hustle and bustle of the season.


Keep It Up

As hectic as the holidays are, try to keep up with your regular fitness routine.

I know I feel tons better when I keep my regular fitness routine.

My week was started at the GYM first thing this morning.

Exercise is a great stress reliever.

The hustle and bustle of Christmas can bring on loads of stress.

Please remember to take time out just for you.

Have a great week.




Childlike Heart

The great Man is he who does not lose his childlike heart. ~Mencius


I think in many ways Christmas brings out our inner child.

My Hubby and I usually sneak away and get our Santa photo taken.

Great memories as we grow more mature together.

Hello, December

Hi everybody,

I feel like I have been gone forever as it has been a number of days since I have posted.

My Hubby and I were taking care of our grand kidlets while their mommy and daddy were in Mexico. Lucky bums!  :)

We were living in their home and looking after their dog and cat as well.

With all that said, we were busy!!

We survived and did manage to play a couple board games.  “Apples to Apples” is a really fun, full of laughter game to play with a variety of ages. Adults enjoy it as well.


We played Monopoly another evening.

My Hubby and I hadn’t played Monopoly in years.  It was a fun night, although Monopoly is a long game.

Our daughter and son-in-law are home safe and well tanned.

Grand kidlets are happy they are back and needless to say we  are too.  :)

December has arrived!  Where do the days go? Are you getting ready for Christmas?

We have our home decorated and our tree up. My Hubby loves to decorate and the outdoors is all lit up.  Such beauty.

I enjoyed my regular routine of being at the GYM on Monday morning. A 90 minute workout does wonders for my body and soul.

There is no place like home.

My Hubby and I are happy to be home again.

Have a fabulous week. Take good care of yourself.

Friday Chuckle

I thought I would share a Friday chuckle with you.  My daughter and son-in-law are going to Mexico for a week and my hubby and I will be living in their home while they are away.  Busy and fun times ahead with a 10 and 13 year old.  I will try to get to my blog throughout the week.

Have a fabulous weekend.

I thought of myself when I read this joke, not because of the false teeth. I am blessed to still have my own teeth, although my hubby tells me I can be a chatter box.  ha ha   ;)


A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes.

The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes.

The following Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes.
The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened.

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn’t talk for more than 8 minutes.

The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes.

But, the third Sunday, he put his Wife’s’ teeth in by mistake and he couldn’t shut up..

I KNOW you are smiling.




A Beautiful Thing

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~Mother Teresa
