    So being a Barista at a very popular cafe' I'm

    usually pretty busy and the people I serve often consist of 20 to 50 year olds. Yesterday night at about 22:00 (we had a special event) these twins that must only have been around 6yr old (there dad had come over with a colleague to discuss work) came next to the counter and...

    I made myself a book/games room in our spare

    bedroom :) I decided that if kids weren't coming along any time soon, I may as well use the space for something positive. This involved hauling three bookcases and a desk and chair up the stairs by myself (I'm super impatient and decided not to wait for my husband to help me...

    Maybe if I can post in here

    once daily it will help remind me that not all is lost in my world...after awhile hopefully I can block out the negative and focus on the good things. Today, my 14 year old son called me mommy...even though he was just playing around, it still made me happy to hear it...

    My Life

    I am generally a happy person, so I find something every day to be happy about.  Today my son playing with the new puppy made me feel happy.  Getting a bunch of typing done made me happy.  The pretty night sky.  There is always something if you look for it!

    Breakfast On Ep

    Each morning I log on to EP while sipping coffee and eating breakfast. There is always something  good going on! What a way to start a day, catching up with my EP family. I'm sometimes late for work but make up for it through the day.

    Spring Time!

    Warm days, blue skies and balmy air are very welcome after a cold but short winter. And what better way to bring in the new season other than to see a newborn calf. He's still wobbly on his feet, only knee high to me and doesn't like being too far from the milk bar. What's the...

    Today I was in a drive thru at McDonald's.

    I needed something to drink and I wouldn't be home for another couple hours so I stopped. Instead of just paying for my large iced tea, I paid for the car behind me. It made me feel so good.

    I mentioned in my earlier post a few years back,

    that whenever I try to meditate, I could not stay focus for more than five breaths - my mind would be harassed by thoughts, 'one train' after another. I would like to share that for a while now, I am able to focus and stay focussed on my breath. No thoughts. Just my breathing...
