A to Z Blogging Challenge: Z is for ZZZZZ's

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

While I do love my uninterrupted sleep, naps run a close second to make up for all those interrupted nights.  There is nothing better than dozing off on a rainy afternoon or in a hammock in the dappled area of the yard.  I love the way I feel after a solid afternoon nap.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: Y is for Yoga

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

I had to stop doing yoga for two months after surgery last summer.  When I resumed last fall I couldn’t believe how good those stretches felt. I mostly workout in the morning but the movement feels just as good later in the day.  The important bit is to remember to do it mindfully.

Happy A to Z April!

‘X’ being an unknown quantity.  I like not knowing what the future holds.  I could be living anywhere, doing anything six years from now.  Just thinking about all the possibilities takes my breath away.  It brings me joy to know I still have so much life to live and control over my choices.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: W is for Water

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

While I wouldn’t say running water brings me great joy, not having running water does bring misery. I have had the experience of being without gas, electricity and running water at various times and being without water was by far the hardest to cope with. So today I am grateful for running water.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: V is for Virtual Walks

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

I am lucky that I have been able to set up my treadmill so I can use my laptop as I walk (yup, walking and writing right now).  But often it is better to escape outdoors, tramping around some lovely, maybe faraway, certainly cooler, place.  I use both YouTube and DVDs to pretend.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: U is for Uninterrupted Sleep

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

Between hormonal woes and being a natural night owl I seldom sleep through the night.  Whenever it does happen it is a cause for joyous celebration and boy does it feel good.  I suspect my future life will include a return to my vampire ways and the joy of uninterrupted daytime sleeping though.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: T is for "This is Us"

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

I don’t watch much network television but I have been watching “This is Us” since the beginning. I love all the different story lines, characters, locations and changes in time.  Seeing glimpses of the future and stories from the past and how they impact the present.  I hope the script writing stays strong.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: S is for Seasons

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

I always describe myself as a four seasons girl.  I need the pleasures and hardships of each season. I have always enjoyed shoveling snow, raking leaves and cutting the grass.  Front porch and fireplace living. I love the idea of existing in rhythm with nature. (But yeah, autumn will always be my favorite.) 

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: R is for Reading

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

If I am ever stuck on a “dessert” island in addition to chocolate chip ice cream and cookies I would NEED books.  Yes, NEED. I can’t imagine going even one day without reading.  I have filled bookshelves in every room of my house.  I think books are the most perfect functional decoration ever.

Happy A to Z April!

A to Z Blogging Challenge: Q is for Quiet

This month I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. My theme is my Joy (sometimes Gratitude) List and each entry will be 53 words which is my current age. Enjoy!

I can drive in my car in a bubble of silence. I can spend the day in the house with no music or television.  And when we go camping I love it when there is no sound but the gurgle of a stream or the crackle of a fire.  Quiet makes me happy.

Happy A to Z April!
