Happy Hearts And Broken Toes

I know I's been so long since I posted.  I apologize but it's summer, and I have had no desire for the computer at all.  I have just been cleaning and gardening and enjoying the warm weather.  Sometimes suffering in the crazy heat!

Last Sunday was my birthday and I had such a lovely weekend.  Saturday I went to Denver and went shopping.  R was so good about it, he didn't sigh or tap his foot once.  And he only grimaced slightly when I bought out the mall! 

Then on Sunday we went for dinner at P.F. Changs.  I had Chilean sea bass...yum!

One of the treasures I picked up was the book above.  It presented itself at exactly the right time as things tend to do.  I have been thinking a lot about happiness lately.  Now don't get me wrong, I am not unhappy by any stretch.  But I have been wondering if I am truly happy?  How do you know exactly? 

They say money can't buy happiness, but I am not sure that's entirely accurate.  I have stuff in my house that makes me quite happy just to lay eyes upon it and most of it cost money.  Of course I don't think things bring you true happiness.  (Except for teddy bears of course!)

So what is true happiness?  How do you live happily?  I would have to imagine that the answer is different for everyone.  For me I think happiness is being satisfied with all that you are and that you have in your life right in this moment!

The book....which I have only read a little of so far...says to be happy you simply choose to be happy.  Sounds easy, but is it?  It says you have to align your thinking to the fact that every incident in your life is the best possible event right that moment.  Now I know that is hard.  But maybe it's true. 

Monday morning I got up at 4 am...I have been sleeping nights again...and I walked right into Ridley.  I didn't see him in the dark and my toes went onto either side of his leg.  I heard them snap.  I break my toes all the time.  I suspect it's because I break my toes all the time and they are weak.  This is the first time I have broken two at once.  So why would this be the best possible event right now for me?

Pain aside...maybe it's because I needed to slow down and sew again.  Maybe it's because it gives me time to enjoy some of my favorite movies while I sew.  And maybe there is a larger reason I can't see right now?  Who knows maybe it kept me from something bad that I might have done if they hadn't broken.

I think I am going to take the advice from the book and choose to look at this in the best way possible.  Afterall...I do need to sew, and who doesn't love to watch their favorite movies?

Hopefully I will have something new to show you soon.

Also I must say that receiving all those birthday wishes on Facebook really did make me feel special, and that makes my heart just that much happier!

Have a lovely day, and be matter what happens!

Hugs, K. <3

I know I haven't posted in a while again.  But I have had computer burn out a little bit and it's just simply Summer!  So I have been enjoying that. 

I also have a kitten which of course takes up more time than you might think.  Above are pictures of Penelope with Buster.  He loves kitties, and she growing and getting into all the sorts of trouble kittens get into.

I also wanted to let you know that I am going to do the class in October.  I think that's best since people are outside and on vacation...and classes are just fun in the Autumn.  At least I think so.

I hope you are all enjoying your Summer as well!  I will return soon!

Hugs, K. <3

Independence Day And Other Things

First of all, Mozzie and I would like to wish you a cracker jack 4th Of July if you live in the US!  We hope your fireworks are the sparkliest!

Speaking of Mozzie...I told you several months ago that he was named after the enigmatic and mysterious character of Mozzie on White Collar.  In last Tuesday's new episode we learned that Mozzie was an orphan and is so named after his teddy bear "Mozart" but he couldn't pronounce it so he called the bear "Mozzie."  How cool is that!  I guess I picked a bear name for my Mozzie afterall!

Now I have a little bit of bad news.  It's been 90 degrees and over here quite a bit lately.  If I turn on the air conditioning I get sick.  If I don't, it's too hot to work.  So unfortunately the website update I had scheduled for Wednesday isn't going to happen.  I will however post the one bear I do have made.  I want to apologize to those of you who were patiently waiting.  I have several bears in the works, but until this crazy heat spell we are having breaks I don't foresee a whole lot of work getting done.  In Colorado we just aren't used to extended periods of extreme heat.

I will keep you updated!  Enjoy your holiday, or if you're across the ocean...enjoy your day!  I am off to eat BBQ chicken, corn on the cob and strawberries...yum!
