Happiness :)

  • Be sure to look at Crystal’s link “time to draw” of March 26!  Happiness!!
  • Spatuletail hummingbirds…so beautiful!
  • Cookie needing to go outside right after her bath…it was so cold but we made sure she came right back in so that she didn’t turn into a pupsickle :)
  • Joel Osteen
  • Forgiving and moving on
  • Wildflower seeds
  • Seeing a tv poll and thinking of Garrett’s info on “confirmation bias”
  • Luann’s beautiful huge new 4×4 Ram truck…powerful
  • You know you’re from Montana:  an SUV or pickup truck is a necessity, not some sort of status symbol :) ….  and  … if you had both sunburn and frostbite in the same week :)

Shaking it off

  2. Linda McCartney’s lemon loaf cake recipe, found in a magazine, delicious (she was vegetarian I think?)

  4. Read Wild by Cheryl Strayed- I love the way her stories wind from past to ‘present’, leaving questions that make you read on for answers
  5. Just because someone thinks something doesn’t make it true
  6. Just because I’m offended doesn’t mean it’s not
  7. Letting go letting go letting go
