For me, Mylot, dancing, singing, any physical movement, meditation, telling jokes, good food, goood friends, seeing new places, visiting old places, doing crafts, talking to friends and relatives, so many things. What makes it enjoyable to you?

I think the things that really give me pleasure are my family and my writing. I am retired, disabled and on SSD so I don't work. Writing online affords me a great outing and keeps my mind working. I think that going to an occasional movie and going out for a meal is a nice way to enjoy life too. Gets me out and about and with my social anxiety it is good for me.

Sounds like you know how to enjoy life. I wonder how long we'll all be able to afford going to movies or out for a meal. The way things are going. Gas went up 3 times in less than a week.

I do have some joy and that is great. I am through trying to make others happy by what I do and am just making me happy now. Gas is always going to go up. The less there is the higher it will get. That is something people don't seem to understand. And they just keep plugging along like the government is going to take care of it all for them. One step away from "Oh, just give to God!" God will take care of it. RIGHT!!

Sometimes it's a job well done. Sometimes it's just sitting and enjoying doing nothing for a moment.

Since my husband is unemployed and I get work about once a week, doing nothing happens way to ofen. We keep thinking of things to stay busy. We'd like a job to do well. My husband is making stuff with wood when he can get his workshop above 50 degrees.

How is your cruise going?

I don't go out to work, but work all day! I enjoy the things I do, so that's a job well done. I don't know where the cruise idea came from. Maybe I sleep typed or wrote one things whilst thinking another (I do it talking sometimes, so maybe typing too!)! I'm actually on a residential course, and that's going very well thanks. It's nearing the end now, and I'm not sure whether to be sad it's coming to an end or happy to be heading home soon!

We are so much alike, I don't know if I can add to this, other than playing with my puppies or watching them do crazy things..Plus when the weather is nice, I like walking my neighbor's dog, only because he is old and calm, unlike my girls..lol

You play with your dogs, I'll pet my cats. At least until the cats croak and we both retire, then we'll probably have dogs because we'll have time for them. The cats are happy with just a little attention. Take care.

enjoyable life for me is being with friends without failing my studies and work, doing some artistic crafts, traveling, and surfing on the internet.

Doing my daily routine with love and devotion makes my life enjoyable for me.I need my family around me.THat is all ; I don't need to go anywhere. Reading a magazine, a novel, writing on the net,cooking some special food ,chatting with memmbers of the family , reading a paper,finishing an assigned task, --they all make my life enjoyable. When I have health problems I get bogged down .

Spending time with our kids and grandkids is my favorite thing to do. Also enjoy being on the computer, making crafts and visiting the casino. Really enjoy making a new craft since it's a challenge. Spending time with friends while enjoying a fun lunch is also special.

Hi Grandma, Glad you're enjoying those kids and crafts. Maybe we'll get a chance to get some of your company on Mylot today. Have fun and take care.

Having a day, a time, the energy to dabble in my impetuosities! I am of the impetuous nature...and so if the urge hits me to go weed my garlic, to pick some wild fruit, to knit, to sew, to write...my most favourite thing is to have my time-table clear, so that I can do what I like, want or need to do, at the time (so far that has not included installing my taps)! LOL! And now that I have put this project out for all and sundry to see, I think it will inspire me to get it done! Take care...and Cheers!

Before I do that kind of stuff to enjoy myself, but when I finished college, there's still missing. Until I found out that, to take away my phobias would be fun I think. So when I started to take away my fear of height, dang, it feels so good, and now I am still doing it. Its like accomplishment to take away those. And I enjoy it especially when you're with friends or even my family.

Let us see... Same with you, I enjoy Mylot. It kinda relieves my stress. hehe... I love traveling. If I don't have the money to go to far away places, I just try to go around the city and have a joy ride. I enjoy having dinner with my friends at a new restaurant in the city. We often do this since we were in college. A few games of bowling from time to time would be fun also. Whatelse? Oh yeah, a few drinks every weekends would be great also.

there are many ways to enjoy life, to be happy at work, home, visiting places,having friends and others. I do enjoy life by being with people whom I love, my kids, my men, go and visiting the villages where you meet old friends whom you were with at school,college, when you attended the church with them and socialise,making jokes, reminding each other about what you used to do when you were young, go and visit new places just to enjoy life,sometimes I like to be at home with my family, on week-ends do braai and some drinks, thats the way I am enjoying my life
