Vacation is coming soon! I went through all my summer clothes and honestly, do not need to buy a single thing. What I would LIKE to have is one more bathing suit and a pair of gold sandals. But if I don't find anything, I'm not sweating it. Also, very oddly,even though I am not at all where I want to be weight-wise, I am not letting it bother me one iota. I intend to enjoy this vacation and fully participate (in laying around and eating good food lol!). I think our vacation to the Grand Canyon last year just made me realize that life is too short to not participate in wonderful experiences, weight be damned!
The new window scarves arrived last Friday and this time they are perfect! Now, we're just waiting for the area rug and the living room will be done. Photos coming as soon as that happens. I am very happy with how it has come together and can't wait to start working on artwork, etc. for the walls. I am also VERY happy that I found a sectional that will go down my stairs! I took some measurements and went back and worked with our salesman and he talked with the driver who did the first delivery and we found something! Bonus #1 was that they are not charging us a second delivery fee. Bonus #2 is that Mr.Helen was so swamped at work he told me to just take care of it since I work 2 miles away from the furniture store - wheeeee! Bonus #3 is that I got to pick every single aspect of the unit: the pieces I wanted, the fabrics I wanted, the pillows I wanted - even the welting on the cushions. The whole experience was like I was spending big money - a very fun, satisfying and happy experience!
I got to have a sunshiny, short-sleeved 6 mile run last Saturday. I somehow managed to run it faster than I've been running lately. I was hysterically happy. If I didn't have so much to do, I would have kept running, it was just going that well.
My hot sweaty, freckled, happy face
Finally a video (from a friend who never posts such things) posted on Facebook. I'm so glad I took the 10 minutes to watch it through as my friend suggested, because it reaffirmed to me that we should leap on every chance we have to live our lives fully!
P.S. Fran, I think these ladies are Dutch!
