If you had a shelf for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronic devices and things stored on them, people or animals), what would you put on it?
(1) a candle, preferably purple, that I light before writing in my journal to signify intention
(2) a prayer bowl made by a potter who belonged to one of my book clubs that signifies unity with the earth and all of nature
(3) my current journal, which holds my aspirations and testifies to the healing power of honest writing
If you had a box labelled ‘happiness’, what would you put in it?
See answers to the question above.
Then add: my husband, my daughter, and all the books on my TBR shelves.
What do you want more of in your life?
Time. For reading, writing, thinking, spending with friends and family, smiling, loving. Oh yes, time for exercising, too.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Yesterday a group of us went on our monthly Lunch Bunch excursion. This month’s restaurant was Mexican, called the best Mexican restaurant in Tacoma by people who know more than I. I’m not a huge fan of Mexican food because I don’t do spicy, especially peppery, but the spinach quesadilla I had was mild and very good. And I do appreciate a good Margarita.
Next week we will be taking a tour of the Washington State Capitol building in Olympia, WA. This is a trip we’ve been asking for for quite some time, and I’m glad that it’s about to occur. And there will be lunch after the tour, so what’s not to like?
I hope everyone has a good week!
