In keeping with that new and improved attitude I spoke about in my last post, I am still singing and cheering life's praises. Things have been good, great in fact. I can't really complain! And how many people can say that?
I've been keeping busy. I have cooked and baked a ton lately. We had a visitor in town for five days and now I'm having another one come over this weekend. When you have friends over, that's always a bonus in life!
What else? We've been visiting parks, going on shopping excursions and planning each day's activities after we wake up and see how we feel. Then as I was having fun and not really thinking much about writing, my next project came to me. I need to think some more about it but I'm pretty excited at the possibilities. The only hint I will give is that Neil Simon is my inspiration and I will be re-reading his works in the coming weeks. My idea is totally different than anything I've ever done before (but so was my cookbook and that turned out well)!
So yeah, not trying to brag but.....Things have been wonderful.
Don't just take my word for it though. See for yourself.
Here is my life these days - captured in pictures:
1) I've been snuggling up with this sexy guy, my husband Kirk.
Kirk took a long weekend off from work so we had the opportunity to have a lot of family time together which was really nice.
2) Vivian and I have been having indoor slumber parties and picnics on the cold and rainy days.
I love how my girl is a nurturing type already. She is kind enough to share with all her animals. :-)
And she covers up her "kids" to keep them warm.
3) We've been accessorizing and playing dress-up!
Arrghhh! I'm a pirate.
I'm a ski-bunny. But instead of hitting the slopes, I will be on the runway strutting my stuff.
Or I'm a rock star just waiting to have some chocolate fudge.
4) We've been indulging in beverages where salt goes around the rim! ;-P
5) I've been making some wonderful and very tasty foods, like this muffuletta pizza:
Oh, trust me.... it tastes even better than it looks!
6) We've been enjoying the great outdoors on any day where it's 40 degrees or above, like our recent trip to a local bird park:
The diva gets up close and personal with some memorable birds.
7) We've just been playing, sliding, falling down, getting up, telling jokes, smilling and laughing a whole lot lately!

Also, I've started reading a new book, "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. I've only read one chapter so far but I'm enjoying it. It's right up my alley when it comes to being more appreciative, more grateful and more practical about living a joyful life. I know that things can continue on this great path if I keep my mind and my attitude focused on it.
I can't wait to see what wonderful things will happen next!
Name something good that is happening in your life right now. What's the last great moment you experienced, the last great meal you ate or the last great thought that entered your mind?
