After a frosty night the whole nature was glistening in the morning sunshine - every young leaf, every grass blade, every blossom. It looked more exquisite than the finest jewellery, it felt like walking amongst the most precious treasures of the world. I felt like the richest person on earth.
Beauty is the moment when time vanishes and eternity arises. - Amit Ray

i had a stair way built into a hilside. The kid i hired ended up taking out more of the hill than i expected and i am going to need to put some sort of retaining wall. I measured it last night and realized that the work wil be less than 4 feet so i won't need a permit
It will be relatively easy and cheap to fix. and it will not take a lot of thought or care

The nurse that gave me my vaccine shot this afternoon was very kind and take good care of me as I suddenly choked. She went to get me some water.
This made me stop coughing right away and I felt better, calmer and ready to receive my shot.

I got my second shot of Covid-19 vaccine.
It makes me realize what a year we all had and see brighter days coming up soon. It makes me feel safe.

I feel grateful that I got to spend the afternoon with my boyfriend. He took me on a drive way way out and up, and we found some spectacular views.. feeling like we were on top of the world.
Being out in nature boosts my mood tremendously. We had a very nice time together.

Mi esposa Andrea, con su forma de ser me hace entender que ella es una maestra en mi vida.
No le digo gracias a ella por que es un aprendizaje personal, sin embargo agradezco a todos aquellos maestros en mi vida, aquellos que me enseñan a auto-generar Paz, Tranquilidad y Serenidad n mi vida.

Glad to be back at work again.
Getting out there interacting with people again has been rejuvenating and refreshing. People want to connect again and share stories. I miss this part the most in the past year.

It was snowing today, but instead of being frustrated with such a cold weather in mid-April, I felt grateful for this exotic experience, for the beauty of snow, the way it brings calm and light. It reminded me that pretty unexpected things happen sometimes, and it's up to us whether to love it or hate it.
We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same. – Carlos Castaneda

My husband cooked pancakes for all the family for lunch.
It was delicious and for once, I didn’t have to do it.

Staying with my sister and her family for a few days.
Playing with the children gave me lots of laughs while getting to hang out with my sister was really lovely and helped me feel connected and that I'm part of a unit that's bigger than me. Then I saw a beautiful sunrise which I'd not normally encounter by being up early for a bus. This made me thankful that I get to see different skies and roam underneath them.

GF called to thank us for the last 3 dinners we have hosted here, with her, this last week.
Appreciated being thanked; she is a difficult person.

Ability to eat inside together--Glor, Julie, me, Mike--unmasked, all fully vaccinated. First indoor dinner with anyone in 13+ months of this difficult pandemic year.
Felt grateful!

At the Tires shop I have been to repair my car, the clerck was polite and kind toward me even if I had expressed some impatience after waiting for my car for more than 1 1/2 hours.
This made me realize how I am prompted to react and make assumptions based on my perceptions and the needs of my ego.

I spent the morning at Hamner Springs with my extended family.
I've been building back the relationship with my step dad over the years and this opportunity to hang out at the hot pools with him and his partner's family showed me that we all can change and not be effected by past events that have haunted us. I was grateful for my brother in law for driving us down even though he was tired and for my nephews who chatted away to me and played eye spy with, for that was really fun. I'm thankful nothing was said to me that hurt me and that I didn't have to play defense.
