We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same.--Carlos Castaneda

The pleasantest things in the world are pleasant thoughts: and the great art of life is to have as many of them as possible. –Montaigne

I like the “happiness is a butterfly” quote. There must be a lot of them in the large garden (last photo) you have pictured. :)

How beautiful is the quote by Helen
I admire her very much. Being blind and deaf and still optimistic enough to enjoy life, is an enormous achievement.

Thanks for your visit! I wonder if somebody will solve the quiz. I don't think it is so difficult.

I love the flowers! I haven't had an opportunity to plant mine yet what with the rain and the work. I want to do it today if I have time after I deliver the cakes.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
