Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But turn your attention to other things, it comes and softly sits on your shoulder.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
Sometimes I stop and think, "Yes I am happy this moment."
Sometimes it is at times when I am not especially looking for happiness.
It is usually in quiet moments that I feel happiest.
It has been very wet today but I ventured down into my backyard. 'Ventured' is the word. Many of the paths are overgrown and slippery and I was definitely expecting leeches.
I stayed on the top level of my yard and took some random photos in the rain.
The first is the view down the back to the old cubby house.

My brother G was listening to the radio and heard an interesting discussion by Sarah Wilson about types of sugar in our diets. He bought and printed off the eBook for me.
It seems that fructose is the villain - even in Balsamic vinegar which I am very fond of. And many skim products are higher in sugar than regular products. The book was very interesting and I intend to give it a try, as soon as I stock up on some cider vinegar and full cream milk. It is very similar to the Primal Diet but not as restrictive. One day soon I am going to hit on the right combination of foods, where I can lose some weight and not be starving and have a headache. I am too busy to have a headache.
