Don't You Want to Accomplish More In Life??

Recently I had someone ask me.. Don't you want to Accomplish More in your Life??? Are you satisfied with your Life??
After about a 20 second pause... I answered...
Yes, I am very happy with what I have Accomplished.... and I am very Satisfied with my Life.... But Are you???
This person has a fantastic job, makes lots of money, has a beautiful home, drives a brand new car, has a family.... But this person seems to have no joy in anything except going to work... Never any stories about family time..
Anyway, that is what they have Accomplished and its wonderful for them..
Me... I am thrilled that one of my Accomplishments is that the Daycare Kiddos are happy to see me each morning and greet me with a smile on their face.
I feel very Accomplished that the parents trust to leave their children in my care.
I think one of my greatest Accomplishments is the relationship I have with my Family and friends...
So Do I want to Accomplish more... Sure, I would love for my greatest Accomplishment to be to meet each day with Joy!! Hoping to have lots of those days...
Am I satisfied with my Life!!! You bet your bottom dollar I am satisfied... was met with smiling faces this morning...Happy parents going off to work, 3 critters who are happy I am taking care of them... but more importantly I woke up this morning..... and I am finding joy in the day.. Very satisfied with Life...
Oh... and My greatest accomplishment this morning.... Both bathrooms are clean!!! WooHOO!!! its a great day!!!!

My Hibiscus Bloomed this Morning!!

I woke up to a Beautiful surprise this morning... My hibiscus bloomed. These Hibiscus are not of the Hardy variety. This plant my sister Melanie purchased for my Mom for Mothers Day a couple of years ago. I love it!!

I bring it in each winter and enjoy the blooms. It has a couple of more buds on it.. so hopefully I will be able to enjoy it for a while yet.
I have 2 others that I purchased this spring. A Yellow and a peach colored one. Peach has buds.. Yellow.. nothing!!!

I love having these plants to help me remember that even with the Cold Winter Weather.. Spring is only 96 days away!!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!!

It Snowed here all morning..
Probably about 4 inches.. More then enough if you ask me.
But since its going to Snow whether I want it to or not.. might as well make the most of it.
So Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!!!!

Fisher Price Nativity...and the Puppy

I purchased the Fisher Price Nativity a couple of years ago for the Daycare Kiddos..
They love it. I only pull it out during the holidays so its a new toy every year.
This year... I forgot that Miss Lucy had come to live with us. Miss Lucy is... well a Lively Puppy. She is a year old but she is busy and fast.
I caught Miss Lucy with the camel from the nativity which is set up on the coffee table in her mouth.. I told her to DROP it.. and she did. I picked it up and put it where it belongs... then I left the room.
When I arrived back the poor camel was laying on the floor and his nose is missing.. Thats right she ate his nose right off. I was heartbroken. I have contacted Fisher Price in the hopes of purchasing a replacement camel.. If I can't I guess I will have to buy another nativity because we can't have it without the camel.
If you have small Kiddos in your house they will love the Fisher Price LIttle People Nativity... if you have a Puppy.. Hide the Camel!!
