Frozen computer

Thank goodness for a computer savvy husband. XD

Feel Good Friday

The Girl Next Door Grows Up started this Feel Good Friday meme. See lia sophia’s blog, ( the current hostess) for the Mclinky.

My happy day included receiving size 50 knitting needles in the mail. I won them in an auction on eBay. I love using e-snipe to minimize bidding wars.

In two hours I got 1/3 of a baby blanket finished —

And in 20 minutes I can make an eyelash lei —

I am having fun and it gets better. Soon I’ll be getting my first circular knitting needles.

Have your best day ever!

This week’s post is a sister to last week’s. This week the suggestion is to give a little more than is expected. It can be a little more of intangibles, like service or attitude.

It contributes to your consciousness of abundance. If you are giving a head of lettuce from your garden to your neighbor, check over the heads and give them an especially nice one. It’s win win for both of you.

Once I was putting a deposit on a workshop. I had an extra $5. with me and put the requested deposit plus the $5. It will make it easier when I have to pay the remainder, I thought. As it turns out, they were swamped with deposits, more than they could accommodate.

They accepted anyone who paid in full and the rest were left to a lottery — except, because I had paid that little bit more than, I was accepted.

Think of it, those businesses that give you a little more than, in service or quality or products. You notice. It feels good to be the recipient.

Consider trying this for your own good. It just happens to be good for everyone. I think that is often the case. What is good for you is good for all involved.

Have you had any experiences with this?

When I find myself saying or thinking that I don’t have enough money for something, it is much more empowering to say –

I don’t value that.

Or –

That is not something I am interested in doing.


That doesn’t work for me.

I guess this only happens when others are pushing me to do something.

If it is something I really want to do and it seems out of my budget, then I am more likely to look at how I can make it happen another way. I believe the things that are our destiny, that are in line with our purpose; those things will happen and we will have the resources we need.

I have often said, okay God, I think you want me to do this and I don’t see how. Would you help me out here please? Heck, I say that little prayer a lot when it comes to convincing my husband of something.

When I’m 64!

When I’m 64!

Ah, that would be today! Yay, I’m alive. I’m not a wasn’t or an isn’t. I love the Dr. Seuss Happy Birthday To You book.

A younger blogger wrote about having crow’s feet. Here is me trying to hide my crow’s face.

Today is mine. I am letting go of all the things on my plate

— the drawing I am working on for OWOH. It was supposed to be ‘easy’. I’ve been at it over 20 hours so far and it’s what I want to do but not today. XD


I find myself cleaning of all things. I love everything all clean and uncluttered. My inner child loves to clean. My outer child does NOT. I will make it fun however.

I’m wearing my favorite blouse. It’s knit silk and I already got some kukui oil on it and I will be cleaning in it, but hey, It’s my birthday. I asked dh to take a photo of me to show you, I was so pleased that I didn’t have muffin top. Turns out my delusions are better than my eyesight, so no photo.

Since it’s my birthday and that is like being Queen of the universe, I wish for you all to have your best day ever!

My Favorite Tea House In All The World.

After my Geisha photo session, my next stop was the  Jidai Matsuri parade. I was at the far end of the parade route, and very early, so I walked toward the place the parade begins. When I got there, I was still early so I decided to stop at Somushi’s, a recommended tea house. Oh my, their link has beautiful pictures.

OMG, I am so glad I went. It is my favorite of all time. It is furnished with old Japanese mixed with contemporary wall hangings.

They had interesting teas like mugwort. I was in the mood for coffee however. I thought this cup and saucer were Bizen pottery but they are not. They gave me this name and I think it is the town they are made in -Ishii Nooto, and a business card that says Do Kka To Yu.

I love this beautiful old bill holder made of wood.

And this fabric coaster.

The checkout counter is made of stone and had this cute fabric cover.

If I could I would take my valentine here. He would like this vegetable chili. I was thrilled by the fresh taste and the variety of vegetables.

I moved a slice of lotus root to the center back of the plate so you can see it’s lacy beauty.  Under the vegetables is a mound of rice.

Enchanted, I went to check out the bathroom.

Blue ceramic urinal

The pot and scoop are to purify your hands.

Blue ceramic Japanese toilet

The bamboo pole is helpful for steadying yourself.

A beautiful old metal sink.

They have counter service and cute little tables if you like. Some are outdoors in a garden area.

I chose to sit Japanese style on the floor.

Wall hangings and antique wood adorn the place.

This one from old kimonos with Sashiko stitches, divides two areas.

I loved these beautifully sewn organza ones.

I don’t know why they have the tails? They are for sale. Maybe I could buy a small one?

Alas, too many zeros for my budget.

Well, I have my memory of this lovely place.

The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!


What makes me happy today? Well I get to go to the beach and jog a little and crochet, then I go to an art  group and work on the cover for my novel.

I finished my granddaughter’s zebra blanket and will mail it off in time for her birthday.

All my Christmas stuff is packed away, (I know), and I even mended the wise man’s hand and Santa’s foot and an angel that had been broken for years. So what could be better? Well, actually how about a 6 foot tall pop up tree. You open it out and a fully decorated tree pops up. Then it folds flat to put it away.

Lastly, I’ve been wanting to give back something and last Wednesday I started writing a series of posts about creating abundance. It’s scary because I am so exposed. It’s what I have to share with the world. Gee, I hope the posts will be easier to write than this is.

Have your best Friday ever!
