Life is what you make it – sounds dumb, but it’s so true!

You ever get in one of those moods, you want to run around the yard yelling, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!” 

I’ve just felt negative lately.

Today I have decided to snap out of it. Biscuit says, “let’s go outside…”

Cheer up Sleepyhead, and then get out here with a pair of snippers and do some dead-heading.

Dead-heading. Good idea. I’ve let myself get bogged down with worries. Snip!

I just can't stay grumpy with friends like this to cheer me up.

I just can’t stay grumpy with smiling faces all around.

Life is full of Trouble, that’s for sure. Sometimes it just seems like Trouble has got your number, and she won’t stop dialing it. Well today I’m going to hang up without even saying Hello!  Quit calling my house Bitch!

Sometimes you have to search out the Positive - so I went in the green house this morning and searched out all these ripe strawberries.

I don’t think you have to be Pollyanna to tell yourself, for everything bad going on in my life right now, there is at least one good thing.  And look for that good thing, like it was your car keys.  Oh there it is! I knew there was something around here…

Looking over the garden this morning, I noticed the weeds had picked up where I’d left off, and I realized I have to get back on my “weeding for 15 minutes a day” routine.  That’s a lot of weeding, it really makes a difference, especially if you start around your sprinkler heads. As I squatted down in the tomato patch to yank some Burmuda grass I found a globule of happiness.

Aha! Summer is early this year.

Aha! Get the bacon!

My husband has been telling me we would have a ripe tomato by the end of the month, I think he was being conservative. Today we will get our chores done early and head to the grocery store for a pack of bacon, a head of iceberg lettuce, and some white bread. Yes, store bought white bread is the best stuff for a BLT, it toasts perfect.  Don’t forget the mayonnaise. 

I find, Life is What You Make It. Today I’m going to make it BLT Happy.
