Scatter Joy -- Day 21


They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit... I needed a new habit... a re-boot... a way of focusing on all the good and filtering some of the bad.  These 21 days of Scattered Joy have helped me refocus and REMEMBER all the good that still surrounds me...


Our young golf pro of the gentler gender says that, if you take the "power pose" or "super hero pose" for a short while every day, it will actually change the chemistry in your brain!  Hey, doesn't hurt to try it. Strike the pose, ladies.  ;)

And, I'm back to my 21 Day Fix exercises again... along with my walking.  I've had to prove to myself, ONCE AGAIN, that walking isn't enough.  I need some core and resistance training.  Twenty-two days down: a life time to go.  Back on track.


Over the past several years I've had my feelings hurt by folks I'd love to be closer to... but, seems they really only want to come around if they want something from you.  At 61, looks like I'd have learned better by now.  I'm really working on letting go... of the hurt... you just can't make someone love you back.  Nope.  I know this.  Feeling it is another thing... but, I'm working on it.  And, really who wants to chase after someone if they don't care enough to be around you just for the joy of it????  Right??? Right!  (Remind me of this if I forget.)   Moving on...


Yep, 100%.  So far.  LOL!  Thank you for sharing this 21 Day Scattered Joy exercise.  It's been good for me.  We still have some tough times happening with friends; but through it all, we are gifted with many, many blessings.  The Little Men & Co. will be arriving tomorrow and OH, HOW MUCH WE LOOK FORWARD TO THEIR BEING HERE!!  (I will admit that I am savoring the quiet in the house right now though... hee hee).  We have so much to be THANKFUL for today.   If I don't make it back until The Little Men & Co. have left, I hope each of you have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving.

May God bless and keep you and yours ~ tanna

Scatter Joy -- Day 20


This goes a long way on demonstrating how easily I am amused... 


I was dragging the trash cans to the road this morning for garbage pick-up... in my robe, no less... when I spot these giant mushrooms across the yard!  Of course, I had to run in the house and find my camera!  Wish I had put something beside them to show their scale.  That biggest one was at LEAST six inches across!  They were so beautiful with the early light shining on them.


Photos do not do their beauty justice... but, take my word for it, they would have made you smile, too.  ;)  We are surrounded by beauty every day and I absolutely agree with Monique, from La Table de Nana, who made this comment on an earlier Scatter Joy post:  I think being able to appreciate nature and having hobbies are 2 things that matter so much in being able to continue to find and seek joy in life.  Me, too, Monique.  Me, too.

May your JOYS mushroom today!  ;)  LOL!

Scatter Joy -- Day 19


I never tire of the beautiful autumn colors... or light dappling through limbs...


Evan and I enjoyed a round of golf with Jeff today.  It was crisp and cool, but sunny... a perfect fall afternoon.


And, I've managed to move myself off high center with the sleeves... Number one is well under way.  Crossings my fingers I will stay on task.  LOL! 

Find your JOY...

Scatter Joy -- Day 17


Brother Jeff... he was leaving me behind on the morning walk... because I could not pass by a little group of crepe myrtles that were a stunning shade of orange...  They demanded a pause... and a photo.


My little brother is a JOY to me... I love when he and my SIL, Brenda, visit.  We always have such a good time.


This is the sight that had me sidetracked... Oh, such beautiful colors!!

Seek and scatter some joy today!

Scatter Joy -- Day 16


Some snowy beauty from our Colorado trip in October...


My beloved with our friends "babies"...


The aspens were dazzling...


The marble sculptures are gorgeous...


Especially capped with snow...


This is Marble, Colorado and Pat at Mille Fiori Favoriti did a WONDERFUL post about this area if you are interested...


My favorite of these was the momma buffalo and her calf...

Have a JOY filled day...

Scatter Joy -- Day 15


A GIFT on my morning walk!  Such bright, beautiful colors...


Scattered JOY on my path today...


Maybe not so much JOY is being stuck not wanting to do the sleeves on this sweater... LOL... Always something with me and sweaters (Karen, do you recognize the stitch markers?  Love 'em!)...  I can't find my size 5 DPNs and I'm not liking the Magic Loop method... yet. 

May your path be strewn with JOY today...
