#100happydays - Days 24 - 31

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Wow so I really need to catch up.

Day 24 - I'm happy about rainbows. I love it when it rains outside and then the sun peaks out from the clouds. A beautfiful rainbow slides across the sky and a smile forms on my face. To me it represents promises and fullfillment. It means hope and wonder.

Day 25 - I'm happy about air mattresses. Okay so I have to admit I'm getting older. I used to be able to camp in a sleeping bag on the ground. Today, once I got in it I might not get back out of it. No seriously my back goes out and I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame. So I'm am so happy that I can blow up that mattress and lay in old lady comfort.

Day 26 - I'm happy for campfires. I love the smell and the coziness of it. You can sit around telling stories of family fun or whatever. And yes I love roasted marshmellows which I refrained from eating more than one or two on the trip.

Day 27 - I'm happy for sunsets over the water. Oh my they are breathtaking. We camped by a lake with blue green water. The sun rested over it at dusk and make so many colors across it and the sky. It just took my breath away.

Day 28 - I am so excited and happy about starry skies. I would sit out at our campsite and look out at the moon and stars. It felt so peaceful and relaxing. The crickets chirped and I loved every minute of it.

Day 29 - I was so happy to have family come and visit I haven't seen in 10 years. It was nice to catch up and laugh at ourselves when we were young. I loved remembering my grandparents which passed over 10 years ago. Nothing like sharing memories to warm my heart.

Day 30 - I was so happy to be at home. Nothing like my own bed and familiar surroundings to take out the kinks. I felt kind of chaotic on my trip. Things kind of didn't go as I had planned. It rained for almost 2 days so we couldn't cook like we planned. Camping area was rural so the places to get food was limited and not the best for weight loss. I also had a few "accidents" on the trip because I am completely a clumsy person. So I was glad to be there but also glad to be home where I could have a few better options/choices.

Day 31 - I'm happy that life is fluid and flexible. I didn't do as well on vacation as I wanted. I am working on not beating myself up when I don't live up to my or others expectations. I just have to keep pushing which is becoming a favorite mantra. Hey I didn't gain w eight besides the water weight from TOM. I am feeling blah physically but I think that is from one of my little accidents.

Anyway, to summarize here I am and I'm not a quitter. I am going to rock July.

    It's great to have you back! I missed you! emoticon I am glad you had a good time camping for the most part. But I agree, its always nice coming home to your own bed. We haven't done tent camping for a few years now. We were going to go last year but my pain was so bad we cancelled it. Who knows, maybe we will go late fall this year. Although my husband says our tent camping barely qualifies. Our tent has a porch and closets and the air mattress we take is on a folded stand and has a foam top. emoticon

    I do love campfires though! Right now I am sitting on our deck next to a fire in our fire pit. Life is good!
