This past Friday through Sunday could be described as a winner, winner, winner!
Rarely, if ever, do I hit the Weekend Fun Trifecta. By that I mean indulging in life's happy ways, day, after day, after day! Now worries, just the "F" word...F-U-N!I savored these fabulous three days and I ate up (chomp, chomp, chomp) every minute of it. I admit I was exhausted by Sunday night, but I had no control over the timing of events, so I just went with it. It was excessive and I don't have the social stamina to do this every weekend, but once a year? Why sure!
First, on Friday, was a day at the spa with the girls. Old friends, new friends.....all friends are a gift that you give yourself. Awwww....yessss, a massage! My Mother's Day gift -- I loved that! Then, lunch, siwm and chat, chat, chat with wonderful ladies. If I hit the mega lottery, this is how I would spend every Friday.
Next , a baby shower in Manhattan Beach on a gorgeous Saturday. Alas, I will be an Aunt and I count the days until this little guy rests in my arms. It has been a decade-long wait for a cousin to join our family. Here is a photo of Miss Piggy, Cutie-Pie and myself. Have I mentioned how much I love my sisters?
On Sunday I attended a wine and food festival with my hubby and peeps. Food, wine, and dancing for three hours. My body tells me I am getting too old for this and I keep telling it to shut up.
What if I could hit this Trifecta of Fun every weekend? Then it would not be special. Because of the blessings, I felt rich.... rich and wealthy with simple joys... friendship, good health and love.Those are the things that really matter in life.
Cheers to the Weekend Fun Trifecta: Relaxation, Family and Friendship!!
Riding a unicycle is like life. To be successful and enjoy the ride, they both require tremendous balance and focus. I sit up tall, shoulders back and imagine I am holding one of my young boys under each arm. My best-friend-techie-husband’s hand on my seat (hubba, hubba) to guide me, and my two wiener dogs running alongside, looking like double Dumbos. As I train to ride Blanche, my unicycle, in a half-marathon, I think how good God is as the breeze blows my brown hair, a big smile on my face. Come along for a thrilling one-wheel ride while I do my best to maintain balance... but keep an open mind, there is always something new to learn!
