HappyUP!!! Day 4525


HappyUP!!! - jumpin on Christmas
Why it happened - I said that I would
Why it makes me happy - I got a late start today. I think that the distraction, however, put me in a better mindset to get as much done OR more than if I had started earlier. Sharpened the old axe before heading out to work

HappyUP!!! - re-purposing
Why it happened - the “paint shop” was open
Why it makes me happy - see the picture. Old pickle jars...the dishwasher...some painted lids. I love turning a trash into an extremely cool treasure!

<—— you see used pickle jars...I see a lovely canister set. Why? Because I have permission to see things a little differently as I sojourn this orb. Hell NO!!! that will NOT be a Christmas present. It’s for ME!!!


HappyUP!!! -DD to the rescue
Why it happened - I reached out
Why it makes me happy - ...and he delivered weight her GREAT idea I was looking for!!! It’s going to be a FANTASTIC present!!!

HappyUP!!! - stuff to garage
Why it happened - neede to clear space

HappyUP!!! Day 4524

HappyUP!!! - Katie bug teaching
Why it happened - I had an idea
Why it makes me happy -it was AMAZING what this little girl learned. She impressed her parents and grandparents.....and her desire to learn was fantastic. It was joyous watching her giggle while we made up the story that would help her remember the material. A 12 year old learned the names of the first 20 elements of the periodic table...in order.....in less than 15 minutes! 

HappyUP!!! - “AbraCadabra POW!!!”
Why it happened -Mason
Why it makes me happy - why do adults like playing with children? Because they give themselves permission to be children. I give YOU permission to look at the world a little differently as you sojourn this orb (read the moniker above)...and have for over 4500 days.  This includes seeing and acting like a child at times. As a matter of fact, it demands it!!!

HappyUP!!! - some amazing wedge work
Why it happened - it’s in me
Why it makes me happy - THIS is the kind of wedge play that should happen all of the time. It is happening more and more frequently. I’m gaining on it. So happy I “ground it out” in the wind today!

HappyUP!!! Day 4523

HUUUUGE DAY today......I must contain myself!!! 



HappyUP!!! - Q-bollous care
Why it happened - I got off my fanny
Why it makes me happy - SPCA helped me out with the chipping. They gave me a recommendation for shots.....I bee lined it over there. None of this was on my today list of things to do but it is something overdue. DONE! Q-ball doesn’t like shots! Learned that today

<——I know....that’s one cool teapot!

HappyUP!!! - A.H. the guest
Why it happened - she was invited
Why it makes me happy -I KNOW she is going to join.  She is going to get so much out of what we do. At the same time, she is going to teach us so much. She is adding a diversity we have not seen

HappyUP!!! - delivering a great speech
Why it happened -iPad
Why it makes me happy - not only did I use it at my speech, I came up with another possible use... and people really dug it! Hey, just proves people LOVE their name up in lights!!!

HappyUP!!! -trip to the mall
Why it happened - iPad class
Why it makes me happy- Mike at Apple was GREAT! I got an hour of one on one. Cassie at LoveSac has been very helpful. I stopped by Restoration Hardware just to browse....they had a ROBE there. It was on sale and would do the job. I needed a new one forever and wasn’t even shopping for one. Then, right across the aisle, I saw Crate N Barrel. “Hey, I need a teapot...a really cool black one. I wonder if they would.......”...no sooner did I step in the door but ...BAM!!!...there it was. In and out in minutes!!!

HappyUP!!! Day 4522

HappyUP!!! - my annual 
Why it happened -I do that
Why it makes me happy -all ACES!!! I had a lot of questions. I was hell bent on getting my money’s worth this time! Bloodwork was fantastic. Doc concluded with, “keep doing what you are doing...I am proud of you.” Hey, that’s like getting the “Good Boy” sticker from the dentist!

HappyUP!!! - writing a speech
Why it happened - we needed one more
Why it makes me happy - got a quality one ready!...with a Keynote display!!!

HappyUP!!! - Sunrise Health
Why it happened -I go there
Why it makes me happy - got some new stuff...nice supply of old stuff I needed. Also had a synchronicity moment...and I acted on it. I hope it helps my friend!

HappyUP!!! Day 4521

HappyUP!!! - Christmas Dinner with friends
Why it happened - it’s a tradition
Why it makes me happy - just good fellowship...and killer food! Glad I did my pre-meal “hack” because I ate a BUNCH!!!

HappyUP!!! - 74 and 3 birdies
Why it happened - mindset
Why it makes me happy - didn’t even have the A game today. Just “golfed my ball,” as we like to say. Turned something that started quite modestly into something that could have been something! Love those birdies...could have easily been 5 of them. I’m still waiting for that day to pop up again. It’s been a long time.

HappyUP!!! -tech geek? Me?
Why it happened - I know stuff
Why it makes me happy - it’s funny listening to people my age and older when you show them great stuff. “You are becoming a tech geek! We can’t trust them!” First of all, at my age, it obviously doesn’t take much to be a “tech geek”.  Second, you go, “dude, embrace the technology. It can make a lot of good stuff GREAT! ...and it doesn’t take much effort. Oh...wait...yeah...you are kinda busy. You want to watch the 49ers lose again....as opposed to learning something. I get it.”

HappyUP!!! - nicely played round
Why it happened - just great thinking
Why it makes me happy - had a couple of bobbles. Ball striking was solid. Driving of the ball very straight. The putting stroke is in good shape. 12 greens in Dec from the back tees is pretty good for this golfer! Playing it out of the fairway is a good idea!...go figure

HappyUP!!! Day 4519

HappyUP!!! - coming back
Why it happened - confidence
Why it makes me happy - the front 9 was the worst score I had recorded in AGES. Did I get down? Did I give up? Nope. Calmly, I said, "Wow! That was a fluke. I can't get it all back but I am going to get some on the back 9". LOVED my attitude. And....

HappyUP!!! - great ball striking on the back 9
Why it happened - decided to finish my swing
Why it makes me happy - every fairway was hit coming in. Basically hit every green until the final hole. Made some extremely nice swings.  All it took was a little idea. I'll work on it tomorrow

HappyUP!!! -Lovesac 
Why it happened - I was at the mall

HappyUP!!! - my Taupe Shirt
Why it happened - I found it
Why it makes me happy -OK...I wasn't looking for it. I was just making tidy. Perfect shirt to wear with my ensemble today! It had been hiding. I am sure it contributed to....

HappyUP!!! - a nice round
Why it happened - I stick with it
Why it makes me happy - had it going today...even without my best stuff.  Two errors ...one on 13 and one on 14 sent me to 6 over par. Time to call it a day? Nope....played 2 under the rest of the way in and salvaged a round!

HappyUP!!! - birdie on 18
Why it happened - 4 great shots
Why it makes me happy - it's cold. The hole is playing long. Got it to on top of the hill. 145 yards out. A bit of a stretch but I hit the 8 iron anyway. Put it behind the pin (yeah...I rocked it). Tricky little downhill left to righter from about 14 feet....and it NEVER left the line to the pin. Closing with a birdie? YEAH!!! HappyUP!!!!

HappyUP!!! - nephew

HappyUP!!! - no collateral damage
Why it happened - I'm a miracle?
Why it makes me happy - took a rather awkward tumble last night. Caught my foot on a low shelf after doing some recent furniture decoration. I thought "that's gonna leave a mark"! As in...something really bad. All good....and I am INFINITELY grateful

HappyUP!!! - meggings
Why it happened - I crack me up
Why it makes me happy - too cold for shorts? too warm for pants? Throw leggings on under shorts! It was quite the fashion statement. It wasn't fully appreciated by my golfing pals.  Hey, reds go together as long as you wear as many different shades of it as possible, right?

Why it happened -I was in the neighborhood
Why it makes me happy - peeps can knock this place all they want....but it had everything that I needed....including a receipt checker/greeter who waived me by, "I saw ya pay for it...all good." Glad to get a "thing" crossed off my list here

HappyUP!!! - fixing the dishwasher
Why it happened - I looked on line
Why it makes me happy - I had this same issue long ago. I thought I had someone come out to fix it. It could have been something else. A quick look on line jogged the memory. SUPER easy fix!! No waiting for a service person and spending $80 for this dude! Full use of dw is on NOW!!!

HappyUP!!! - great group today
Why it happened - we went by handicaps
Why it makes me happy -we had a full 12 dudes out there on a Sunday. THAT is INSANE!!! We sometimes struggle to make 4 or 5. My foursome was the low handicaps and it was a competive deal.

HappyUP!!! - helping TD

Why it makes me happy- not sure why I never looked this gem before. I got a pretty good handle on most of it. Now, singing it? Hmmmmmmm......that's going to take some noodling around with. It also was in a tuning I never have played in.....I think I could do some cool stuff with this setup.

Why it makes me happy - grabbed some great brekko before the round.....then got a little something afterward that was a lite bite and a leftover for later.  Quality and convenience...sign me up!!!

HappyUP!!! - Lots of great stuff on the course
Why it happened - a lot of super mental work
Why it makes me happy - been at this sport for a long time. It can get to you. It has to me and I see it all around me.  I have found a mental groove that is helping me transcend the ups and the downs. It is more of a "BE-ing" with it.  The score will be what the score will be. No thinking, "I got to move this that way and another thing this way..."....whoa! All golfers know that drill. Just having a great time....and a lot of confidence

HappyUP!!! - Cats in the Cradle
Why it happened - they can't help it
Why it makes me happy- I caught them!!! That kitten keeps chipping away. While both curled up in a ball is unlikely, they were pretty close to it today. THAT, my friends, just melts my heart that Portia has a friend when I am not around!

HappyUP!!! Day 4498

HappyUP!!! - bunker shots
Why it happened - lots of opportunities
Why it makes me happy - should have batted 100% on up and downs from the kitty litter today (left a putt 1/4 of a turn short). Great feeling from the beach as of late

HappyUP!!! - clerical error by the shop
Why it happened - arrogance pretty much
Why it makes me happy - first, the guy who would have benefitted questioned me. Second, the guy that made the ruling was wrong. Third, when given the chance to "right his wrong," he was a bit arrogant. Me? I went, "OK, I'll roll with it." The outcome ended up resulting in a big win in my favor!

HappyUP!!! - body awareness
Why it happened - mental work
Why it makes me happy - great day at class today. Discoveries that I was able to take to the streets immediately

HappyUP!!! - partner 69
Why it happened -he's that good
Why it makes me happy- it was just a joy to watch this gentleman tear it up today...especially as my partner!

HappyUP!!! Day 4497


HappyUP!!! - mousie out..no kitty in
Why it happened - persistence and smarts
Why it makes me happy -the runt sent her favorite toy down into a vent. I had it open...had to use a coat hanger to get it. If you have ever worked with a coat hanger that you have to bend, you know that can be frustrating....especially when a kitten is trying to jump down the hole. THAT would have been a fire department call for sure! All is well....Q-ball and the mouse are reunited

HappyUP!!! - tidyUP!!
Why it happened - kicked in a bit
Why it makes me happy - long way to go but some GREAT progress was made today

HappyUP!!! - cookies to the shop
Why it happened - I made some
Why it makes me happy - I know the young guys...and other golfers...are going to LOVE these little gems I baked. Felt good.

HappyUP!!! -snugglers
Why it happened - progress
Why it makes me happy- I found a cat under the bed. Couldn't find the kitten.  Well, until I made a second pass. Right behind the big girl was the little guy. She was hiding him! LOL  Nope... they are just getting friendlier and friendlier. Whenever I see it, my heart melts a little

HappyUP!!! Day 4496

HappyUP!!! - good shooting
Why it happened - physcial and mental work
Why it makes me happy - it's not all put together yet, but I have been playing this game long enough to know when things are coming together. Just need to get the driver straightened out a little bit and I might sneak that GREAT round in before the weather turns

HappyUP!!! - coupons
Why it happened - system and memory
Why it makes me happy - I am less than enamored by my grocery store's rewards program. Unless you are a "coupon clipper," (I am not) it is easy to end up "burnin" these. Not today. Saved myself about $15. NICE!!!

HappyUP!!! - cookie dough delivered
Why it happened - I donated
Why it makes me happy - forgot all about buying these a couple of months ago in a fundraiser for a local school. The little neighbor girl (the student body president) delivered them tonight. I took up the initiative and put a couple of dozen in the oven. Somebody will be very happy tomorrow!

HappyUP!!! - pants
Why it happened - I live closeby
Why it makes me happy- it ended up being chilly on the range mid-day. I said, "I don't think it is going to get warmer this afternoon."  A little dash home and my shorts turned into pants and I am glad they did!

HappyUP!!! Day 4495








HappyUP !!!- JM on the range
Why it happened - he grinds
Why it makes me happy - ...well...I was out there too! Love this guy. Not a lot of people working on it today at dusk. I just had to try something out. Lots of promise here


HappyUP!!! - helping TD
Why it happened - part of our onboarding process
Why it makes me happy - the process seems to be simple to others....once it's explained to them. In a beautiful world, this step won't be necessary.  At the same time, it was good to sit down with a new member and get to know them a little better

HappyUP!!! - The Fig Tree
Why it happened - see above
Why it makes me happy- what a cool little place here in my town. It's the quintessential coffee house like from Friends.  Great addition to the community

HappyUP!!! Day 4493


HappyUP!!! - awesome transcendence
Why it happened -I work at it
Why it makes me happy - I envisioned some things today that I can only call radically uplifting... and I wasn't even in need of any uplifting. Hey, you don't have to be sick to get better!

HappyUP!!! - morning cats
Why it happened - they are buddies
Why it makes me happy -my heart was so full to see them at it today. I am so lucky that Portia has taken Ampersand (aka: Ampy, Amps, AmpyFIRE, Q-ball) in as her little buddy

HappyUP!!! - Partner's play
Why it happened - 4 birdies helped
Why it makes me happy -nice to see him have a solid, relaxed round. He needed it. 11 putts on the front 9 was insane!

HappyUP!!! - a nice day
Why it happened - who knows
Why it makes me happy-thought we would be in for another smokefest today. My heart is still breaking for the people of Paradise. It could have been the wind but I was hoping that less smoke today than yesterday means some people in other towns are getting spared.

HappyUP!!! - 4 under thru 5....5 under through 10
Why it happened -one man scramble tournament

Why it makes me happy -got out to the club a little early....and they put a nice turn on this set of eggs! Just what I needed to get through my round

HappyUP!!! - getting done before dark
Why it happened - luck
Why it makes me happy - the 4 groups behind us weren't as fortunate. I could barely see the pin on my last shot into 18.  Happy for outerwear as well!
