Growing up in the Okanagan I was a "beach bum" and belonged to the baby oil generation of sun tanners.....
Ok I know better now.....but for most of my adult life I've been too heavy to sit outside comfortably for even the shortest time. Totally intolerant of the heat and sun!
Ah fast forward.....
Here I am still only 2lbs away from my goal weight of having lost 100lbs (posted that yesterday)....but revelling in the fact that I am thoroughly enjoying having a bathing suit and shorts on, a tall glass of ice water by my side, sunscreen on, good historical romance novel resting by my deck chair and just listening to the sound of the little waterfall we have in our back pond.
I've had such a relaxing day!
Painted a little (outside on the deck the first of 5 large paintings),
Read a little (great thick romance novel...being thoroughly swept away by my imagination!)
Sipped cold water all day (9 - 8 oz glasses so far),
Listened to music streaming from an online radio station.....
Yup.... finding the sunshine restorative and wonderful!
