Days Until Summer

Yesterday's recap:

Elements of fun yesterday?

I must say I was still really enjoying the song "Best Day of my Life" while at the gym in the morning.

Also, my Friend from SC, Karla, who got me thinking more about fun, left me a really crazily happy message on my cell phone saying that I had inspired her to ride a shopping cart across the parking lot in a show of solidarity for more fun in our lives.

I still need to follow up with her about that , because the message got cut off, so I hope that turned out well....

And there were two notable things that made all of this health and wellness stuff better, more pleasurable, more joyful and less of a drudge.....

Element of fun # 1:

I had a neighbor over in the morning and enjoyed coffee and a bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers and onion. The conversation was fantastic and it took me a good hour to eat my one bagel with toppings and every bite was scrumptious. The food was less important than the company and the fact that she brought over her adorable 60 lb, 6 month old golden retriever to romp with my dogs, Odette and Reo.

I wish I had a picture to share, but they literally never sat still for even the briefest moment in order to facilitate that.

I also had dinner with my crazy girlfriends, all of whom also happen to be aunts or cousins. The food was fantastic, but the company made it even better.

I don't get together with friends often (everyone, including me, is always so very busy) so yesterday was special.

Element of fun #2

I'm experimenting with flavoring my water and made a pot of Tazo Wild Sweet Orange Tea. I added it to my pitcher, diluted it with water and then added some mandarin orange slices. It was really good and worth doing again. I'll have to remember that.

    The tea sounds like an excellent sweet idea!
And, following your lead, I intend to get more connected with people than with food.
Have fun!

    Awesome. I'm really into this drinking tea stuff ever since I quit coffee months ago. I tried this one TAZO tea called Passion and it is amazing! Tast kinda like fruit punch to me. You should try it. I'm going to try your orange stuff.

    I've been on the journey since Christmas. That's 81 days ago. Looking back it seems such a short time. Now you have me looking ahead at 100 fun filled days of summer. It's 80F here today so summer has officially arrived.
Confession. I was a secret shopping cart rider, too. It makes you feel like a 10 year old. When people stare, the appropriate response is sticking out your tongue.

    That tea idea sounds awesome! Like herbal teas but I really do favor citrus flavors, even Justin the background!

HUGS and make today FUN! Sounds like you already have.
