Not the game but the type that surrounds your property, part of your property, or an enclosure for farm animals, large pleasure animals, pets and sometimes children.

My backyard is enclosed with fencing, I can’t remember why, maybe for the safety of the grandchildren playing.  Now I can use it for the safety of them and my pet.  I know that I had no need of contacting Pool Fence Arizona, when I decided to fence in the yard.  Should I ever get a pool, then maybe they would be my source for fencing.

My life is so good at this point.  I am sometimes overwhelmed with the amount of happiness I am experiencing.  As is usual I was sitting here alone this morning, and felt so much peace within myself.  It felt as if my body had been washed over with joy.  I cannot explain how I felt but I know I am happy and satisfied with my life as it is right now and that God will always be for me.

I am not seeing anyone at this time and have not during my marriage or since my husband left me, and may never, but LIFE is GOOD.  I have been told that he was seen with someone.  I do NOT care if he has several girlfriends that he takes out.  I only hope that he can find as much happiness in his life as I have found in mine.  What we had, no matter how little or how much, is gone.  I am a better person for it because I will never again change my life and and not speak my mind because of what someone may think or do.  I will be true to myself and inner feelings.  In the future, a person will take me for who and what I am or not at all and that will be okay, too.  If I could change some things I would, but NOT the fact that he left.  I often think that maybe he should not have come back in 1981 or that when he wanted to have a fling with my best friend in 1996 that he had left then.

I have been told numerous times that I have a glow or sparkle about me.  I was recently asked if I had found someone or was I in love.  The answer is NO to the first question and to the second YES, I am finally in love and like the person I am today.  Just yesterday, someone told me I had a better attitude, no longer seemed gloomy, my eyes had a sparkle and my complexion was even better.

What will happen in my future, as everyone else, I do not know.  My plan is always be happy, always smile and whatever the situation, embrace it knowing LIFE is GOOD.

Do you have a desk and ifso, what type.  I have a very small desk, with only 1 tiny drawer.  I am always in too big of a hurry to buy when I want something and do not shop around enough.  I should have shopped more and gotten what I would have been satisfied with for long term use.

I have seen pictures of a house that a roll top desk would look right at home in it.  The style of the house is just perfect for this type desk.  Even if I had the space, my decor is not suitable for a desk with a roll top.

I have decided that I prefer to be a loner at home.  Don’t get me wrong–I love people, really enjoy being with others, but most of the time when I am home I want to be alone.  If I invite you over, all well and good, I am ready for company.

If I am alone, do not have to worry about getting in someone else’s space or have them in mine.  Do not have to worry about how I am dressed or even if I am.  Do not have to make sure I do not bump into them should we be in a small area and going in opposite directions.  Neither do I have to hear little irritating noises they may make or see movements that bother me.  (May be that I am a grouch.)

Should I get a phone call, I do not have to censure what I say or how I may say it.  I like my privacy.  I do like to talk on the phone and can for hours.  I consider it to be rude to talk on the phone with company present, so another reason to be a loner.

If I am alone, I can operate on my schedule and not worry about how it may affect others.  I can do what I want, when I want and I like that.

Yes, I am a loner, but rarely lonely!

I am familiar with two types of goggles:  safety and sports.  We all know why one would wear safety goggles, but why wear sports goggles?  If I swam, I would wear them over my glasses because I cannot see to function without my prescription lenses.  I do not ski but that is another reason to wear goggles.  Snow goggles also protect from the glare of the snow.

Julbo Goggles has several different designs and types, I am sure that you can find just what you want and need at their website.

I went to a small Christmas party last night.  I saw old friends, new friends and possibly made another new friend.

The band played good music—lots of slow tunes.  I enjoyed dancing to those, haven’t got my rhythm back yet for the fast ones and still can’t line dance.   The first slow dance was quite interesting and enjoyable.  The guy used steps that were very unfamiliar to me, but I would like to dance with him again.  Maybe I would be able to follow better the next time.

I enjoyed all the dances, especially the ones I danced but also enjoyed watching the others.  I will have to say that I did not sit out many slow ones.   I was talking with someone when the band started another slow one, I looked at him and said “I did not come here to sit in this chair”, so we danced.  Just call me ‘brazen and bold’.

I did enjoy myself, had fun, and was a lady.  When they gather again, I will probably go—enjoy having good times.

Was told again:   “You have pretty blue eyes”.

I rarely shop with coupons.  It seems that I spend more buying things I really do not need rather than saving.  I guess, as in most things, I need to exercise discipline when coupon shopping.  I have not tried the coupons available at onestopplus coupons.  May be I should.

I have read of people coupon shopping and paying very, very little for hundreds of dollars of merchandise.  That is always interesting to me.

When I was growing up, Monday was always laundry day.  Now it is any day.

I have had my winter clothes closed up in a closet and they smell musty.  I am thinking Wednesday will be a good day to laundry them and get them ready for Winter wear.

Today, I am going to change the linens on my bed and do a load of whites.  I may even laundry my jeans and work pants.  Yes, that sounds like a plan.

Better get busy!

I had a twitter account, still have it but the ticker that ran down the side of my screen has disappeared.  If I knew how to fix it, I could and then discuss triangledirect any many other topics.  Twitter reminds me a little of FaceBook.  Twitter, one follows another and FaceBook one friends another to read the updates posted.
If one wants a lot of interaction or just some will determine your choice of F/B or Twitter.

Life is GOOD!  I can’t change some of life situations that I wish I could, might be worse if I could.  I am the happiest I think I have ever been since I reached my late teen years.  My life is not a piece of cake so to speak, but I know it is the best for me.

I struggle sometimes financially but I know God never made a bird that he did not also make a worm for it.  My struggles will pass, make me a stronger person while they last.

I am lonely, only sometimes.  It is better to be lonely alone, than lonely with someone.  I am not nearly as lonely alone as I was with someone.  I no longer suffer because of emotional abuse.  I will never again be second in a relationship unless that is what I choose to be.

Will I ever be hurt in a relationship again?  I probably will, but that is my choice not a choice someone made for me.

I know that I am the one that now decides who, what, where, when and how.  So just take my word for it:  “I am as happy as I can be, if I could be any happier, I would be.”  Another quote that applies to me is:  “It is what it is and that is all that it is and nothing can change what it is.”
