My husband says I was born with an extra allotment of words compared to the average human. I see that as a strength I want to share in a new weekly “What’s Snappin”. If you aren’t interested in the rambles of my quirky brain then feel free to ignore this installment.
Last night, anxious to take our trailer ANYWHERE, we drove to a state campground ten minutes from our house. Both my husband and I grew up within a couple miles of where we live now and we haven’t been to this place in over thirty years… and never for camping… except he comes frequently for work.
Anyway, as you can see from my 360 below, there are very few people here so we have actually been way further from people than if we were home.
As I’m sitting here catching up on emails and reading some random posts, I am EXTREMELY thankful for all of the amazing people that interact with me and in my groups on social media.
I see so many people posting elsewhere their frustrations over negative comments they get in their groups.
I know things are uncertain and for many, a big struggle (to say the least). Thank you for helping keep our little corner as positive and supportive as possible.
I have to admit, many times I find myself escaping to my “Totally Snappy” Facebook group just to scroll through comments so I can see the good in people. I greatly appreciate how members comment on each other’s posts. That brief word of encouragement may do more good than you could imagine.
So back to my 360 video above…. in the past my husband and I would have looked at this location so differently … so close to the freeway and noisy, in a month or so this will be mosquito heaven, big power poles close by, campfire rings are not my fav (I have to be careful around a lot of campfire smoke because it sets off allergies and headaches)…
But this time we have just enjoyed the opportunity to be out of the house and super thankful for things we wouldn’t have seen before. The mountains are always gorgeous. The dogs have loved new smells. New things to look at, our youngest son even got to throw rocks in the water (something he has always loved doing since he was little).
My big long point is… not everything is going to be perfect or just how we want or need it all the time. We can point out all of the negatives and build on that OR we can play “I spy happy” and see if we can find just one happy thing… and then another… or create a happy if need be.
One of my favorite sayings is:
I hope you can find something happy in your part of the world or create your own.
thanks for reading my ramblings 😁

I find “happy” in my grandchildren. Their innocence and pure joy is inspiring. If you ever need a smile and a giggle I’ll send you my grandson’s (3 yrs old) skate video. His joy is infectious. I crochet for them and your patterns are perfect for them.

In sewing masks right now for all of my friends and anyone that needs one. I also want to crochet that mask thingy that everyone is doing that helps people connect the mask so they don’t hurt their ears. Love the way crochet always finds a way to help too! Cindy B.
