I’m happy for no reason on this 3rd day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. A good night’s sleep and a walk in the park always help. It is a warm sunny day – +10℃ outside and 27.9℃ in the greenhouse with 3 vents opened. The greens are doing very well. So are the 3 Red Alert Tomatoes and the 2 cucumbers. I’m looking forward to happy gardening and fresh salad greens. Maybe there will be a tomato or two at the end of May. Cross my fingers and toes.

Talking about feet, my left heel pain is gone. It’s a good reason to be happy. I’ve had that pain for months, if not for a year. It doesn’t hurt all the time but I sure feel it when I get up from sitting or laying. I would hobble around for it a bit before it would ease. I’ve been doing heel stretches for weeks at a stretch with no result. I’ve lived with this pain for so long that it’s part of me. I hadn’t noticed the exact moment it left. I am sure it was the functional exercise class Friday that did it. It’s such a good class, seemingly easy and simple with no heavy breathing or sweating. This is the set of exercises. We did it for 8 minutes or so.

  • leaning hands on wall for support at an angle, lift heels up 20 times
  • then leaning with back on wall at an angle, lift toes up 20 times
  • walk a straight line on toes x 10 steps then walk backwards on toes
  • walk a straight line on heels x 10 steps then walk backwards on heels

I hope my happiness lasts or is a frequent visitor. My get-with-the-program is going well. I am on my 50th day of #the100dayproject. I’m drawing/painting my memories and history. I am learning and understanding more of myself and life. How’s that for killing a few birds with a pen/pencil and a paint brush?

I think this is enough for today. I have to admit that I am a little distracted and frazzled with my projects. I have to save some time and quiet for myself. I lost on Wordle today. It’s a good thing we can play only once a day. Otherwise, I might not get here having this conversation.

  1. Being happy for no reason is a great way to live!

    When you’re happy for no reason, it’s easy to be content with life. You don’t need anything else to make you happy; you’re just happy because you are. This can be a great way to live, since it means you’re always in a good mood and don’t have to worry about things that might upset you. I love it!

  2. Happy is good and it doesn’t have to have a reason! And wordle! I haven’t tried it yet! Maybe one day. In the meantime, there’s words with friends to keep me entertained!!! Thank you for the enjoyable post.

  3. Lily, how wonderful that you are happy for no reason! When I was a child, I dreamed of being happy one day, and now I am. I love your paintings and the stories they tell. Keep your “Happy”– like the Beatles sang, “Let it be…”

  4. Yay, good for you to be happy for no reason 🙂 Keep it up!
    I did well on Wordle yesterday but needed five attempts today.
    Love your memory paintings.
    We had snow this weekend, so +10° at your end sounds really nice!

  5. Oh yay, we have to find that happiness even if you think it is for no reason. That is the best part sometimes. Keep with the happy thoughts.
    I understand your foot pain. I had plantar’s fasciitis for years. I believe being an R.N. caused mine. I don’t have it anymore and that makes me happy.
