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!

So many good things have been happening. Did you see this? OMG!

On a separate note, Holly over at Holistic Wellness With Holly Worton. had this post and my week has been so joyous since I took up her suggestion. Her posts are very good. I see them as a treat for myself and I am savoring my way through them. This one, it came at just the right time for me or something. Read it for yourself and See if it works for you too.

For me it catapulted me into doing more things I love, and one of my favorite side effects is I am too busy and happy to overeat.

Have your best week ever!

A day to be grateful – my prayers go to all the earth and the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

I’m grateful that there wasn’t more damage here in Hawaii, and for calls and messages of concern. It’s a bittersweet Feel Good Friday. Sad, and yet the loving is brought very present.

Thank you all. Bless us all.

My friend gave me these flowers for my birthday.
they last a long time. The flower pot was a gift form my aunt a few years a go. I love it.

At the beach I was surprised to see wild turkeys. We have them in our village but not usually at the beach. I saw a couple –

Then I noticed a baby –

Then another baby –

The second baby was limping and then I saw why his parents were leaving him – a mongoose was after him. I chased the mongoose away instead of photographing him, but I think the baby was doomed. I guess it’s a good Friday for the mongoose.

I finished two blankets, one for a grandaughter –

And one for a new baby –

I’m loving this edging I learned how to do.

I started with a new alternative health care provider this week and my sinuses are open and I am not being irrtated by sounds – halelujah.

Have your best week ever.

So many good things happened this week.

First, I got to spend a long weekend with my son in Honolulu. It was excellent and I had cheesecake too.

Second, I received this beautiful necklace as a gift from Deci at Gem Trails. I think it’s so beautiful and I love the clasp as much as the butterfly beads.

Third, Jen at Hamster Central is preparing for a solo exhibition in Japan. She sent me one of her postcard announcements. You can see a picture of it here. I love faces and I love it.

Fourth,  I got myself to the beach today to exercise and a lady gave me this.

She said, she picks up heart shaped things and this coral heart was for me. Is this a good day or what?

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY – Projections

The thing that made me happiest this week was odd.

*

Last week I went ballistic when, in my perception, my husband negated my experience. I was raving.

Then a  writer I know, had her booklet translated into Japanese by her son’s girlfriend. Oh, I wanted that for my novel. Maybe it could be a hit in Japan. It’s about … well here’s the pitch –

Koh, is a boy kidnapped as a toddler by a rainforest band that has unique customs and world view. Koh, fascinated by strange people who live near the mountain, struggles to find where he really belongs and overcome strict taboos.

These include: remaining unseen, bypassing capture by warring bands, coping with betrayal by his peers and facing death. Eventually he comes to reunion with the family he doesn’t remember.

I didn’t even tell my husband and I went and asked the writer to ask the girlfriend if she would consider translating my book. Then I set to wondering how to pay for it, a lifetime supply of lei, my firstborn…

Alas, the girl said no; it takes too much time. She did it as a labor of love.

I wasn’t even upset, I felt elated and do you know why? Normally, I would have talked myself out of asking. I WOULD HAVE NEGATED MY DESIRE. And that is why I got so upset, when I perceived my husband as negating my experience because that’s what I do to myself. I am so happy, all I have to do is not negate myself any more and not project it on others.

Wonder what I will be like when I  deal with the gazillion other things I am projecting on him and others. : )

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!
