Swim Up Bar

If you want to listen to some deep, beautiful music…

If you need/want to listen to some deep, beautiful music...

70's lite music.

The Guitar Man by Bread

As I'm sitting here at my desk working on Fathers Day with no one around, I am thinking to myself, what would make me feel better. 

A list soon started developing in my head..

Spending the day with my daughter and grandkids

Listening to some soft beautiful music

Roller Skating - ha...NO, erase that one

My friend drives up in her Motorhome with Cheryl Lynn playing  "Got To Be Real" on the stereo and invites me to take a drive to the National Park so we can have a day of fun and share a picnic.​ A walk in nature...ahh

Swimming in a BIG adult pool with a swim up bar serving my favorite adult beverages...

I'm imagining that I'm in a large pool, it’s a warm summer day, it's hot and I'm thirsty.  I hear beautiful music playing in the distance. Not too loud and just the right beats. I decide to swim in the cool pool and find my way up to the swim up bar and order a nice. BIG, frozen margarita. The bartender is friendly and even has a few jokes to share.

All my troubles are fading away as I start to feel more and more relaxed. 

I'm experiencing a level of comfort  that makes me glad to be alive. The location of my cottage is the perfect setting to show off the gorgeous mountains, the cool palm tress, the ocean, and fantastic food the chefs have ​prepared for me and my friends.

The RV Entrepreneur

June is National Camping Month

Have you ever wondered if you could truly be free from a stationary office? If you could make your living even while on vacation? Well this couple has not only done it but, they are interviewing many others who are doing it too.

​The RV Entrepreneur is a weekly podcast where Heath and Alyssa interview nomadic entrepreneurs who are running a business while full-time RVing

The entrepreneurs they interview haven’t launched multi-million dollar companies or have hundreds of employees, they’re just normal people who have started businesses that allow them to travel full-time and live a nomadic lifestyle.​

Ok, I guess I better get back to work now 🙂

Hot Tip For Travelers From Castles to Treehouses

You get to experience all the comforts of home while you’re away. Plus, in some cases the hosts will give you tips on the best local spots to visit and even pick you up from the airport! NO KIDDING I know someone that traveled all over Europe and this was their experience.

I think for some people (adventurous types…like me)  it’s the new way to travel. Want to try it? Here’s $25 towards your first stay!

If you have a trip coming up soon, you should check airbnb out. It’s simple to sign up, and it’s free to search.

6 Busy Busy Busy…

Everyone I talk to lately tells me they are sooo busy. They have never been this busy and most of them are stressed out to the max. I too have been known to say the exact same thing however, I have made a decision that things are going to be different for me and the people who I influence. From now on we are going to have fun no mater what we are doing AND we are going to let the people in our lives who try to drag us down go. I call this FREEDOM!! This is not always an easy task but well worth it in the long run. From work to relationships I feel FREE…  Feel welcome to ask me how I have been successful at this and I will GLADLY share my secrets.

I have been called a Pollyanna before and you know, that’s just fine with me. I have a peace inside me that is growing stronger and stronger everyday. I surround myself with kind, loving, generous, HAPPY people and that is a protection from the poison you just can’t buy.


I’m a Polly Anna

I am constantly asking the universe to help me with the chore of bringing me money and the physical stuff I feel I need to be comfortable. Ask and you shall receive ‘They Say’.  Just go towards what make you happy and share that happiness with your customers, family, friends and prospective customers and you will soon find that the RIGHT people are attracted to you.

I know how important it is to take care of my body as part of this happiness regimen so I have set myself up for fun exercise. I make my friends meet me to walk  3 miles, 3 days a week and I found a fun new game called Pickleball that’s free at our local community center. I play 3 days a week for 2 or 3 hours and the time flys by. Check your local YMCA or community center to see if they offer it in your area.


Fun game of Pickleball

So busy or not you can choose to live a happy life, full of people who are kind and thoughtful by asking-knowing-expecting-setting yourself up for success and receiving.
