Brook and I went to visit some friends last night.
Time spent in friendship is part of what makes this time on earth so precious.
A Perfect Day for Dreaming…
The weather is perfect today.
Daytime high was around 70 degrees. Light breeze, blue sky, flowers blooming. Perfect.
I am dreaming of having a vacation. I think I’d like to go to Cape May, NJ. I have been to the Jersey shore a good number of times. But, I have never been to Cape May. We need to stay in a place that will allow dogs. We also need an accessible room. Our schedule is very busy coming up. We’ve been looking for a chance to make a short escape… to leave our busy-ness & our business behind for a few days. I wonder when we can make that happen? I hope soon. But, in the meantime, I am getting a lot of mileage out of just simply dreaming about the vacation to come. Gotta enjoy the PROCESS…. relish each day, the dreams and hopes, as well as the planning, then the anticipation, too~!
Most of life isn’t the vacation, but the days in between.
I think it is fun to try something new.
My husband does, too.
He saw this dragon fruit in the supermarket and it piqued his interest. He asked if I thought we should try it. We both thought, “YES”~! We had never tasted it before. So here it is. Our dragon fruit adventure~! And we made directions so you can try it too, if you haven’t ever done so. It tastes a bit like kiwi, but more mild, less acidic, more floral. Subtle, sweet…
This is a simple way to have an inexpensive happiness adventure. Buy something you’ve never tasted before. It is funny how you can’t always describe it. There are few words to describe a unique flavor~!
Today I sat outside with my face facing the sun. I had to take the dogs out. But, it was good to get something for myself while I was out there with “the boys”. With increased time spent in sunlight, people find they have increased energy levels and alertness. So, taking the dogs out doesn’t have to be just a chore. It can be an energizing time reversing seasonal affective symptoms, and bringing peace and happiness. Find a way to let the sun hit your eyeballs during the day~! A few minutes goes a long way, and boosts our Vitamin D, too.
Meet Boaz, “the baby”, our little teddy bear dog. Oh, because people often ask: he is a chocolate Pomeranian.
Remember to be grateful for a few of the pleasant things that happened today.
It really was a lovely day~! Maybe write a few wonderful things down on a piece of paper, look at it again tomorrow, put it in recycling, and then start over again fresh, keeping an eye out for more good things every single day~!
