It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies once spring is here. It may be the sun that is showing itself until 930 at night, after months of being hidden. It may be the increase in the activities that we engage in because travelling is easier.
I have enjoyed my husband's first Highland Games Competition. He is just starting out and this is going to be something we will do 6 or 7 times this summer. He really did a great job and the pictures that follow are from the festival and games last weekend. I am really glad he has found an activity he enjoys so much. It has helped us both to continue to exercise and continue on the journey of being fit and losing weight.

The happiness project has an interesting challenge this month. If you recall January was the start of the year long organization project, continuing regular exercise and sleep, eating right. February was remembering love. The next three months were making memories, work place happiness and being serious about play, and taking risks that may involve failure. Friendships is Junes goal. Hmmm, I will have to think about this goal. I think things like keeping touch, random acts of kindness, and getting together are what is in order. Really the whole happiness project is really about attitudes, making goals and doing what it right. It has been very interesting because after 6 months, I do feel happier. And it isn't just the sun!
