Everything is tickety-boo

It's been a while since I wrote an "everything is tickety-boo" post - long overdue!  So I thought this weekend warranted one.

For those of you who don't know what "tickety-boo" means - its all about looking at the positive side of things.  It is a state of mind where not everything has to be perfect, but things are going long just fine.  And the more you look for the good things that are happening, the happier you are as you begin to see more and more good things in your life.

The little video below of Danny Kaye singing "everything is tickety-boo" is a fine example. It's war time, but Danny happily whistles and sings along his way, with the sky so "blinky blue" on a "dreamy, peaches and creamy day"!

So here is my everything is tickety-boo list for this week:

  • my brother in law is staying with us. Its so great that he has been able to come over from England this year. He missed a couple of years of visits because of ill health - so its lovely he's here, enjoying fall in Northern California.  
  • my cousin Caroline and Jamie had a little baby this week :-D  Yeah.  Welcome Little Keegan. C and J got married at our home/vineyard a few years ago, so we feel like we were instrumental in a little way in bringing Keegan into the world.  Congratulations!
  • it's Thanksgiving in Canada - to happy Thanksgiving to all my relatives and friends who live there.
  • we had new friends come for lunch yesterday and had such a good afternoon with them.  Everything was so easy and natural. We all really enjoyed it.
  • dinner out with other friends last night - lovely to catch up and spend some time with them
  • the grape vine leaves are finally beginning to change color.  Ours are at the golden stage right now.
  • the fruit harvest continues with figs everyday and we are working through the apples and pears.
  • my nephew has had a good first week at Cambridge Uni this week
  • the flowers - especially our dahlias continue to fill the garden and house with beauty
  • a little black cat came to visit yesterday - "prowling" around the vineyard - then came to say hello
  • Chrunchamame  - my new food of the week. Crunchamame  is a freeze dried nonGMO edamame/soy bean crunchy snack.   They are really tasty. I now keep a little bag in my car for those times when I need a snack to keep me going.  Give them a try.
So are you feeling tickety-boo? What has been going on with your week? Take a little time to think of the good things then you'll surely feel that everything is tickety-boo - and can sing along with Danny Kaye :-D
