The view from Fairways Golf course today...I tried to get out and
play but after a few holes I felt some pain in my shoulder so I just rode along
for the rest of the day. ..what a beautiful day!

Sweet Day!

Saturday morning...and I headed out "pickin"...Went to several sales but the very first one had such a wonderful assortment of strawberry themed items.

I snagged the canister set, salt & pepper shakers, and an adorable butter dish! Oh...and I also got the little doggie linens towels there too!

Didn't come home with loads of treasures but I sure do like what I got!

My Dream House!

Some people dream of owning a mansion...or at least something bigger than what they currently live in.

But me? Well..I dream of having something much smaller!

It probably wouldn't be more than 50 to 75 square feet but it would still have all the appearance of a, door, shingled roof, etc.

So while I was out driving around the other day I was waiting at a stop light and I glanced over and there it was! My dream house! It even has a "for sale" sign on it!

This darling little cottage comes with vinyl windows, lights, outlets, a heater, planter boxes and even a front porch and cathedral ceiling!

Oooohhh...I can just imagine how wonderful this would look out in my back yard. There's a perfect little spot..right behind my garage.
It would be my own little "create" and to store some of my vintage treasures.
I can even see a sweet sign on the front..above the front window...

"Welcome to A Little Shabby Shack..."

Maybe if I wish hard dream will come true...

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content when they are. After that, we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice vacation, when we retire.

The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway.

One of my favorite quotes comes from Alfred D Souza. He said, "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, Something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my "life". This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness.

Happiness is the way.

So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time...and remember that time waits for no one.

So, stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until you are off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink, until you've sobered up, until you die, until you are born again to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
