Happy New Year!

And so a new year begins.  Quietly for me.  For the past few days, I’ve been crocheting and drinking tea and thinking.

I don’t do new year’s resolutions.  It never seems to work past January, and I put enough stress on myself without adding a resolution.  But my sister-in-law made a facebook post for her blog that caught my eye.  In it, she asked if her readers had picked an intention for 2018.  There’s a link to a list of words to consider.  That got me thinking.  (Remember?  I’m very good at thinking.)  What if Continue reading ‘Happy New Year!’

100 Happy Days Redux: Day 76

I met up with my friend K today before driving back to Edmonton.

I mentioned how happy I am in my current job, and she said she always knew that I was meant to train people. It got me to thinking about something I did 7 years ago.

100 Happy Days Redux: Day 45

I stopped partway through the drive home from Calgary to rest and enjoy the sunset. I think that we all Continue reading ‘100 Happy Days Redux: Day 45’
