FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday thing. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*

Being very disgruntled about things today means I NEED this meme today.

*

Five things I am happy about are:

1. On vacation I released another 5 pounds and now weigh 17 pounds less than I did in early 2010.

2. I easily fit into some previously tight shorts today.

3. I am feeling deeply contented and happy after visiting family.

4. Most of the mangos on my tree waited till I got home to ripen and my coffee beans are ready for me to start harvesting them.

5. Hubby and I are going for a swim. I love to feel the water surround me.

*

Have your best week ever.

Travel to Japan

Home on Monday, and I had a thirty page itinerary to go over from Esprit Tours and Travel regarding my upcoming trip to Japan.

*

It’s so many pages for two weeks because they pay such attention to detail.

*

This is why I love to use them. This will be my third trip to Japan that was orchestrated by them.

*

Besides having a deep appreciation for many of Japan’s treasures and making great recommendations; they tell you little facts like, there aren’t taxi’s in this area so arrange for one ahead of time or If you take this train you won’t have to change trains or how to find good viewing for a parade.

*

I can’t say enough good things about them. I wish you could all come with me.

*

I don’t receive any compensation for writing about Esprit, just the

extraordinary cultural travel experiences.

that they provide to all their clients.

Home at last

Last night, I arrived home. Hubby picked me up and I went to bed. Now, after 9 hours of sleep, I am human again.

*

My hubby even put clean sheets on the bed. I am impressed and grateful.

*

The house looks so uncluttered.

*

And hubby made the comment that now it’s going to have things around all over the place again.

*

Hmm.

*

I love uncluttered.

*

One problem I have is out of sight, out of mind. So I leave everything I am working on – out.

*

I have an opportunity here to do things differently.

*

So far, I put away two things in my room that were out the whole time I was traveling.

*

I am going to empty my suitcases by putting everything where it goes. This is instead of sorting it into piles that I leave until they age properly.

*

I think while it’s uncluttered, I’ll see what else I can put away before I even start unpacking. I saw two shopping bags near the door that I can put into my car trunk.

*

Then, I want to clean the house thoroughly.

*

That sounds like tomorrow. Oh yes, and catch up on blog reading. : )

Crocheted blanket

The blanket

*

While here at my grandchildren’s, I am finishing crocheting a blanket that my daughter started before she went back to work full time.

*

My granddaughter picked out a variegated rainbow colored yarn.

*

There were 26 skeins of yarn to be crocheted. I’m on the second to last one now.

*

I set myself a goal of one skein a day. It takes me about four hours.

*

When I am here time is very precious, but I made this a priority. I crochet every chance I get.

*

Excuse me, back to my hook.

*

Here is another blanket I made for a grandson.

Weight Loss – Hurray.

My weight is down 5 pounds since I left on vacation. I am so happy about this.

*

My pants were so loose I could take them off without unbuttoning them.

*

So I gave them to charity and got a new pair. Yay. When I get home next week, I have some tight clothes  I’ve been waiting to be able to wear.

*

My comments are off because I’m still traveling.

Have your best weekend ever.

GIRL’S ON THE RUN

Two days ago I picked my granddaughter up at an after school program called  GIRL’S ON THE RUN.

*

I went early so I could watch her at this girl’s running group designed to foster self esteem.

*

It was very impressive how well run it was. Pun intended.

*

They did fun activities that were purposeful in clarifying  values and  were uplifting. Later that evening her father said she was “pumped” about the program.

*

It’s for girl’s from 3rd to 5th grade and at the end they do a 5K race. There is also a group for older girls.

*

My granddaughter told me that she has run 1/4 mile races so far.

*

The coaches pointed out that the girls can walk as needed and that they will all be there to support each other through it.

*

Well, I was “pumped”  too. I am very grateful that this is available and that the women who run it are willing to give their time twice a week.

*
