Our whatever-is-empty rain harvesting system for potted plants, garden watering in days to come… 7 buckets full last night, no overflow yet… #hurricaneAna

Early, scattered starts. Looks like most of the storm snow this lee/west side of Mauna Kea has already melted. Just another beautiful day in our Big Island paradise.

These storm clouds are a beautiful thing after our parched dry summer. Open up sweet things and unburden yourselves!  (at Waikōloa Village)

“What do you mean, “what can I do?” You can participate. You can connect. You can get actively involved. You can turn off the tv. You can cancel the Disney vacation and buy bushels of tomatoes to can or turn into salsa. You can get some pots and grow a pot garden… of vegetables. You can put a beehive on the roof of your house. Just like today— whatever today looks like— is the manifestation of billions of individual decisions accumulated over time, tomorrow will be too. We must stop this incessant victimhood mentality. Somebody else will not fix things. Somebody else will not make me healthy. Somebody else will not make me happy. These things are my responsibility. Not the neighbor’s, not the government’s, not the church or the civic club.” Joel Salatin (via outdoor-anarchy)

I used to think of firewood when I see a pile of logs like this, now I think of hugelkultur.

Paula has appeared on the Steve Harvey TV show and in numerous publications, most recently in Working Mother magazine. Paula writes about the science of happiness in her new e-book, “10 Things Happy People Do Differently.” To learn more, please visit her website. 

Goes with the thinking that happiness is a verb, something I wholeheartedly agree with:

True happiness is a verb. It’s the ongoing dynamic performance of worthy deeds. The flourishing life, whose foundation is virtuous intention, is something we continually improvise, and in doing so our souls mature. Our life has usefulness to ourselves and to the people we touch.- Sharon Lebell, The Art of Living, as reviewed on Brain Pickings
