White Duck and Inspiration and Dancing and Sparkling

November 30 2016:

I got to see a white duck when I was walking Happy this afternoon. So beautiful!

Then we finally had our Team TLC walk right at sunset. It’s been about a week for a family walk as we waited for everyone to get healthy again! It was a blissful walk!! xoxo

How to Have a Mindful Christmas Countdown

November 25 2016:

Last year Team TLC had a mindful Christmas countdown. For the past few years we had a “spreading happiness and kindness” countdown and I I felt moved to add another layer to it last year.

Thought I’d share again for anyone interested … Have FUN! xoxo

Sample: Day 1: The word of the day is “Joy” – “Find Joy, Bring Joy, BE Joy” …. in everything you do today. Take at least 5 minutes, or more, to think about a person who brings you joy. Then spend some time bringing joy to someone today. You can do this with a smile, a kind word, helping them, or whatever you feel moved to do. On the outside of the heart the following words are written, “Keep this with you all day”.

Go here for the entire list …

Romano Duo Visit June 2016

June 26 2016:

We went over to The Romano Duo’s temporary home for the next 4 days. Had some fun at the pool. They get to have a sleepover Monday night!! First night of respite for me since last August. xoxo

We had company for tonight’s walk! They got to see the ducklings, goslings, comorants, a huge frog, and the beaver! YAY!

June 27 2016:

They just left for their sleepover with the Romano Duo! First, we all went for a swim and had lunch poolside. Now, they’re ready for some Duo lovin’! And I get the first time alone at home since last August. I love hanging out with Team TLC all together, yet I am going to cherish every moment of this alone time. xoxo
