I’m so happy. Happiness is such a good state of mind to be in. What is it about being happy that makes a day seem brighter, chores less of a burden, its a feel good feeling.
When we are cheerful, it affects those around us, it tends to make for a more pleasant day, AND everyone wants to be part of the “smile”
Yellow is a happy colour
Yellow makes me smile
Sunflowers, always seem to bring out the best in the day
Aside from running down the street
singing out, I’m so happy……
What is it we do to show the world we are happy?
When I think back on the day,
I don’t recall wanting to jump up at anytime
and shout, I’m happy.
Yet we grumble at the drop of a hat
or complain if something doesn’t go right
mutter our discontent,
How do you express your Happy!
St.John’s work (Hypericum) 5 yellow petals, is a perennial herb. It is believed to help with relief for overwhelming stress and negative feelings. It makes me happy just looking at it. Erect stems and trailing rhizomes. hmmmm share my happy?
When we smile and have a pleasant attitude, we encourage those around us to feel the joy and share in the positives in life.

This is an Inca rope bridge (Qeswachaka) above the Apurimac river in Peru. Rope bridges were simple suspension bridges over canyons and gorges (Pongos) that provided access for the Inca Empire. traffic was limited to pedestrians and livestock and were an integral part of the Inca road system …
This bridge is known as the most dangerous bridge in the world. The Hussaini Hanging bridge is only one of many precarious rope bridges in Northern Pakistan. These rickety cable and plank bridges are long and poorly maintained. Planks go missing, and strong winds shake the bridge as you cross it.
OK 1 more. This is how one scales Putucusi, (Peru) it is a hike that brings you up adjacent to Machu Picchu, it is said to be about 5 stories high. One hiker hiked for 4 days over the top of the Andes on the Inca trail to get to this ladder.
PL lesson, Everything that happens to us, is material for Growth.
I lost my cell phone today. Won’t bore you with the details, suffice to say after searching and searching some more, it has not turned up. There are a few more steps to be taken tomorrow, but the long and short of it is that I simply will likely find myself with out a phone. (cell) Didn’t use it much, will I miss it, it will be inconvenient at times. However…interestingly I am not really concerned. whatever happens it will be for the best. I believe that.
Would I cross the bridges I’ve shown you in this blog. If I needed to get to the other side,and that was my option, yes I would. Would you?
Peru – me and you?

Jalapeno bacon, scrambled with eggs and hot chili spice, topped with another jalapeno sliced, seeds left in.
Side of calamari, battered in salt and pepper. accompanied by a garden fresh juicy tomato.
Dear reader who asked the question, would I eat this when my taste buds are not busy battling a nasty flu bug. Answer, yes and no. I am on the mend, the omelet I am eating no problem, I cannot do the sliced jalapeno even with the tomato to cool it down. The jalapeno bacon, ,hmmmm yes.. it is sooo good. I cook the bacon up on it’s on with about as many slices of jalapeno as you see in the picture. The whole package of very thinly sliced bacon goes into a wok type pan and is slowly cooked in its own juices along with the peppers.
When the bacon has simmered and cooked for about 20 minutes it is taken out with tongs and well-drained, When I cook I used the bacon for flavouring, in the mornings it is used to do up an omelet such as the one above… It is delicious, no extra seasoning is needed, but hey, go crazy with whatever you feel will grab your morning appetite.
This morning I am treating myself to a hearty breakfast since I know we will be on the road for a couple of hours. It is a beautiful autumn day, Hubby will take us for a drive, so the dogs can have a good run in the dog park by the St. Lawrence River. (body of water that runs between Canada and the United States.
Principle #12 in Perfect Liberty is about starting the day with a pleasant and positive attitude.
Whatever your plans for today, I hope that you succeed at accomplishing what you want to do, you are all in my thoughts and prayers no matter where I am, In heart and spirit you are with me always…
