7/11/2014 TUT... A Note from the Universe

Friday, July 11, 2014

What if, happiness didn't have anything to do with what you had, where you've been, or who you were, and arose entirely from what you chose to think about, yet nobody knew this?

And what if changing your thoughts, so that you could feel happier more often, would entirely change what you had, who you were, and where you're headed, yet nobody knew this either?

Do you think if we told them they'd choose to think differently?

Thinking of you,
The Universe

Yep, this makes sense to me.

Wonderful Weekend

Monday, July 07, 2014

This 4th of July weekend was one of the most fun we've had in a long time. We went out to dinner and then to the movies on Friday and enjoyed a comedy.

On Saturday we had lunch with friends at PF Chang's and I'm proud to say I ordered off of the vegetarian menu which also had some low calorie options. So, even though we ate out twice, I did not blow my diet. It also helped that we made time to get our walks in.

Sunday, I worked all day and the time off really helped my creativity and productivity. I hope everyone took the time to enjoy Independence Day. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ocean Skys In the Desert

Thursday, July 03, 2014

For the past couple of weeks it has gotten increasingly muggy. High heat coupled with high humidity makes me feel as if I were walking through molasses. My morning walks have slowed down noticeably and I find that the other morning walkers are much more chatty and less focused on speed too.

This afternoon is the first time that the winds, clouds and humidity put it all together to create rain, our monsoons have arrived! Woo hoo!
These are pictures just before the wonderful rain hit. And BOY is it coming down! Celebrate!

By all means, seek to change the things you don't like and to attract the things you do, just don't put off your happiness for either or the other.

So happy,
The Universe

My Week "Off"

Saturday, June 14, 2014

For the first time in over four years, I had almost a full week "off". My daughter took my grandson to San Diego on Tuesday and I was able to walk every day but Monday. Not only was I able to fit more exercise in, jewelry was made, photographed, and priced. Applications for four juried shows were completed, and I visited a shop with my products and met with the owner. She seemed very enthused, and put me on the wait list.

On Friday my husband and I went down town and shopped at a wholesale shop to pick up more stones. We shared a lovely salad out and had a wonderful time just hanging out in a cool restaurant enjoying each other's company.

Today I had a metal clay class and learned some new techniques, took our son out to eat and did the grocery shopping on the way home.

I miss my grandson terribly, and love him with all my heart, but really enjoyed my time off. Too soon he will get older and have activities, school and other things that will take up his time and I won't be able see him as often. However, a break once in a while is a very good thing.
