The topic for this week is Rediscover your childhood joys. This week is all about rediscovering childhood joys. Anything that reminds you of being happy as a child or you dreamed about as a child is allowed. For those of us who had bad childhoods or can’t remember that far back, show us what brings you joy now. I’m excited to see what you come up with for this week.
The next few weeks concentrate on small strategies for making your job (or home life) a joy.

My entry for the week
I don’t have a lot of photos. But one dream I had when I was six years old, I remember very well, even to this day. It was so full of life and color. I was laying looking up to the sky in the middle of a field of flowers. Guess I was destined to photography flowers.
Lincoln logs were also one of my favorite things to play as a kid. In real life from when I was 5 to 7 years old I did live in the log house pictured below, located in Tofte, Minnesota on the north shore of Lake Superior. I found the photo on the web. As an adult, I have designed on small house for some friends. I wonder if that goes back to my playing with lincoln logs? I have always loved playing with software where I could design house floor plans.
I’ve also always liked coloring. I’m not good at drawing art, but making things bright and colorful is always fun. I am just getting into dot mandalas and I would love to get good enough to do them on rocks. Then I want to leave them around various places and have people notify me if they find them.
Here is a photo from the web of dot mandala rock art.
Here are a couple of photos of my first attempt of doing a mandala on paper. Obviously I have a long way to go.
I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts. So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog. Feel free to contact me anytime. I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.
