What a month of roller coaster news and time off. I still couldn’t manage to post timely!
This weeks photo challenge is to document growth. Personal growth, new plant growth, overgrowth… How to show growth when we are in an arctic freeze?!. Spring most often brings new plant growth. At the new year we do a lot of personal growth, or at least we say we are. Here’s to growing my bank account and not my waistline. May my plants grow to be fruitful and abundant.
I had lunch with some friends and the plant on the counter was so happy with it’s shiny new leaves. The cherry blossoms and the tree are from an earlier spring.

Because I am always taking pictures of everything that catches my eye I had quite a few to chose from. I hope these make you giggle as much as they made me. Each photo has a caption. If you click on the images, you can see them larger.
I’ve barely had a moment to sit still and write the last week. My happiness campaign is in full swing and I’ve worn my fingers to the bone. I’m the head of our annual fundraising committee. They’ve been doing the same events year after year after year… Yawn.
Last year I suggested a snack cart, kinda like the mountain man if you are familiar with that, rolling through the office with chips, candy, juice, fruit… you name it. Everything on the cart was $1. What?! No one is going to pay a dollar when they can walk to the cafeteria and get it for .75! The naysayers were put to shame. We made $1350!! Needless to say, the snack cart will be rolling again very soon.
This year I wanted to do more small fun things to spread joy across the department so I suggested flower pencils. Again… $1. Again… Naysayers. They have a little hang tag I designed with a frilly font for you to send a happy flower-gram to a coworker. We SOLD OUT the first day. Made $125.
Since Monday I have spent every waking minute making more flower pencils. And we’ve had requests for pens so I’m making those too. Tomorrow is our site-wide fall festival and I’ve been frantically making flowers in hopes of selling out again. My poor little fingers are worn out, but well worth it.
I’ve signed up for Blogging 201, but I’ve not had a minute to do the work. I’ll get caught up in a few days. Spreading the love is way more rewarding at the moment!
Let the happiness reign!
I am not the only one who likes my new desk…
Watching my little desktop garden flourish makes me smile almost as much as my awesome view. Green makes anything better. Happy Friday!
Side note: this is my first full, actual post from the WordPress app. I hope this looks ok.
