HappyUP!!! Day 4543

HappyUP!!! - Strum Shop
Why it happened - I busted a string
Why it makes me happy -nice to have this little store so close by. Easy in, easy out. Repair in the days to come

HappyUP!!! - doing some Tidy (as Marie Kondo would say)
Why it happened - all part of the transcendence
Why it makes me happy - it is NOT my favorite thing to do...but I am enjoying it more. Dare say, I am even getting a little better at it. I was using some focus technique. I love what I heard a guy say, “we are so good at distraction because that is what we practice everyday. Practice focus.”  This was a HUGE Aha for me. My focus muscle had gotten a little weak. That’s all. It’s not that I can’t...or you can’t. It just feels hard when we do because we do so little of it. When we do, we stop because it just is easier to be distracted. That’s not how things work. You have to develop the weak muscle in this area. Yes, self-discipline is involved but it is really just building one’s concentration

HappyUP!!! - a lovely night out
Why it happened - my friend hit me up
Why it makes me happy - what a nice chat. A perfect little “cherry on top” of 2018.  Learned some cool stuff and got some great ideas.  We are going to have some fun!

HappyUP1!! Day 4540


HappyUP!!! - birdie 17
Why it happened -skills
Why it makes me happy -ok..a little luck too. This hole had to be playing close to two bills when you factor in the wind. Caught it just a hair thin...but it was right at the stick and flighted low under the breeze. Knocked in the 5 footer to save a little dough. My round needed the uplift

HappyUP!!! Day 4539


Just another winning day - and I ain’t apologizing for it! So much I could prattle on about!!!

HappyUP!!! - iPad stand
Why it happened -I acted

HappyUP!!! Day 4538


HappyUP!!! - new friends in the hood
Why it happened - they were walking by
Why it makes me happy - great to meet some old Roseville peeps that live nearby today. We hit it off immediately.  A visit is in the offing

HappyUP!!! - coming back
Why it happened - great attitude
Why it makes me happy - the game was a little shakey on the front 9....and the putter left too. Yet, I said, “nope, THIS day is going to get better. Threw a very nice back 9 in and narrowly escaped with the victory.

HappyUP!!! - nice morning groove
Why it happened -Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders
Why it makes me happy - their rendition of “Second That Emotion” was pretty inspiring. It got me picking up the axe myself and fretting around in places I don’t usually go. Gave myself a little education regarding the “tonic” chord. Nice morning jam

HappyUP!!! - Landrover Truck
Why it happened - I asked
Why it makes me happy- saw another neighbor driving a unique vechile the other day. I queried him as he walked by. It was a 60’s Landrover Pickup. Good reason I had never seen one before. There weren’t many around.  There is one just two doors down from me! Nice chat!

HappyUP!!! Day 4536

HappyUP!!! - the final Christmas trip this year
Why it happened - it’s Christmas Eve
Why it makes me happy - the people at BF Deli were fantastic....Aldon at Sunrise Health was a wealth of knowledge....the swing through Hobby Lobby could not have been quicker. Even picked up a couple of things that are “nice to haves” that were not on the list. I did it all tooling around in the 2015 CRV of my brother’s. GREAT little ride that is perfect for around town!

HappyUP!!! - shooting the vignettes
Why it happened -it’s Christmas
Why it makes me happy - I learned SO MUCH! Yep, I had bitten off a bit more than I could chew. I learned something about myself when I get in that situation.....I like to snack!!! Good to know there! Something to work on. Once I figured it all out, I breezed through the tail end of putting the extravaganza together.  Better for the labor of love

HappyUP!!! - Ho’opponopono
Why it happened - I had it playing in the background
Why it makes me happy - what a fantastic audio segment from Joe Vitale! I can see this little mantra of gratitude and responsibility working MAGIC in my life. Good things just keep raining down upon me!!!

HappyUP!!! - setting the stage
Why it happened - tomorrow is the big day
Why it makes me happy- the gifts were dropped off. The Apple TV worked to perfection. The numbering system with the rePURPOSEful cards will work out to perfection. All set to go and I will sleep well tonight!

BONUS - just love Q-Bollous the cat. He was a pain in the butt during those videos but his “cameos” are going to be priceless!


Sunday, December 23, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day 4535

HappyUP!!! - filling in for golf last minute
Why it happened - channeling the Divine
Why it makes me happy - yep, this was a strange one. Well, strange to some but more commonplace to me as I delve further into this realm. It was a synchronicity that could not be ignored

HappyUP!!! - attitude going into the back 9
Why it happened - accumulation of mental work
Why it makes me happy - some might say there was NO WAY I should be thinking I would “go low” after what happened on the front 9. I scored poorly...the guy I was GIVING strokes to shot 2 under 34 and it easily could have been a 32. I was getting waxed. Yet, I KNEW I would shoot 34 on the back 9. Did I do it? No.  It doesn’t matter. If it wasn’t for 2 bad swings it would have been 36. Drop a putt or two that could have gone in, I would have been right there. The point: I LOVE how my brain is working on the golf course

HappyUP!!! - swapping vehicles at the course
Why it happened - my brother suggested it
Why it makes me happy - I knew it was going to rain tomorrow. I needed an SUV because my truck wasn’t going to cut it. I was going to pop over tomorrow to my bro’s. He said, “let’s do it now.” It saved me time and a trip!

HappyUP!!! - sugar research
Why it happened - I was curious
Why it makes me happy- when I went off sugar a while back, I did some cursory diving for information. After nearly two months, I decided to go in a little deeper. WOW! If people knew what I knew, Coke, Pepsi, Red Bull, etc....would be out of business! It will be easy for me to pass up the treats I am sure to encounter in the days to come!

Saturday, December 22, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day 4534

HappyUP!!! - mental game
Why it happened -been working on it
Why it makes me happy - got tested today. I saw it happening though. I recognized that it  “wasn’t my stuff”...mentally left the scene...and slammed that birdie putt DOWN!

HappyUP!!! - perfect attire
Why it happened - good picking
Why it makes me happy - weird day. Temp woul rise a bit...then drop a bit. I managed to only shed/re-shed once...much less than my companions. Grateful to be comfortable.

Why it happened - needed to get it done
Why it makes me happy - I was running on a low tank...but I soldiered on. All trips ran smoothly. Very happy about that.

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!

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!

<——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

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!!! Day 4520

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

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

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).

HappyUP!!! Day 4515


HappyUP!!! - Apple Store
Why it happened - it's that time
Why it makes me happy -OK...I don't like the price tag. It's time I bite the bullett and get some new technology. I don't need to hang out there but it is a cool store to visit. Man, does it get crowded! 

HappyUP!!! - PJ helping 
Why it happened -I called him
Why it makes me happy -he gave me some insights and great ideas as it applies to the above

HappyUP!!! - transcribing
Why it happened - it's part of the project
Why it makes me happy - it is one thing to get great things from a book. It is another to go back and get to enjoy them again....and lock them down into the subconscious. Great stuff today!

HappyUP!!! - whipping along
Why it happened - I was against the grain?
Why it makes me happy - I was in some pretty good traffic....for awhile. I reset my sails to get to the other side of town. No traffic and I was "hitting green" everywhere I went. Even outraced a train! LOVE THAT!!!

HappyUP!!! Day 4514


HappyUP!!! - smoothie
Why it happened - something new
Why it makes me happy - I actually used my Vitamin! You know...the one that I have owned forever! And the concoction that I concotced was very pleasant. No, I did not say delicious... because anything full of THAT much goodness can only get "pleasant" as it's highest mark

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?

HappyUP!!! - Nutter Brothers rides again
Why it happened - we were paired up
Why it makes me happy- I never take this wonderful arrangement for granted...ever

HappyUP!!! Day 4513


HappyUP!!! - TidyUP!!!
Why it happened - it's time has come
Why it makes me happy - one month to go for the year. Why not cap off what is already one of, if not THE, best years of my life by knocking down some items that have been long overlooked! Work to do but, so far, it is feeling GREAT!!

HappyUP!!! - "new" clothes
Why it happened - see above
Why it makes me happy - I found some GREAT items that I had forgot I had today. It's like having brand new clothes.....for free!

HappyUP!!! - my body and blood work
Why it happened - I do that annual thing
Why it makes me happy - just KILLING IT on the blood. My body is truly amazing!!!

HappyUP!!! - it has come upon me!!!
Why it happened - I wait patiently
Why it makes me happy- I had an idea for awhile. I started prepping for it. The idea just wasn't jelling. Today, a different idea came upon me. The vision is kicking in. The items I was saving for the other idea can be used in the new idea. This is going to be a GREAT Christmas!!!


HappyUP!!! - an old friend stopped by
Why it happened - I'm irresistible? ...yeah...that's it!
Why it makes me happy- always great to catch up with an old pal! Q-bolous the cat got to host a visitor and show off a little bit. Got a transaction handled. Great stuff going on for all!
