Today was just so much of the good stuff.
I was supposed to do a 10k with a couple of my Adventure Sisters today, but when we discovered it was going to be raining and cold, we decided sleeping in and spending the morning together someplace warm and dry was preferable. Plus, it was Alice’s birthday, so I figured it might be a better start to her day to NOT be drenched and soggy. We decided on yoga followed by lunch.
In a word, my love language is WARM. So when I found out the yoga class was actually heated to 95 degrees — YES, PLEASE! Child’s pose, down dog, vinyasa — so good to move my body, breathe deeply, and be grateful for the moment.
After yoga, we went to a Cuban restaurant. Woohoo—I’d never had Cuban, and I love trying new things! What a treat to celebrate my dear friend’s birthday with her. Lunch ended with some kind of gooey, caramel-ish free birthday tart of some kind….topped by a sparkler! You gotta get the free birthday treat — can’t be rude, right?!
More good stuff to come….Aunt Cho came down from LA for a visit. She is one of the most amazing human beings God ever decided to come up with. Any time she can be with us — YES, PLEASE!. Chase and Karen came over too. I love my family. Lots of laughter, stories, talk of the future, and holding the past closely—together.
Add to the mix, good friends dropped by to continue their project of patching up some drywall where they had taken down a wall-mounted bunk that had been in Chandler’s room. Not glad we’re in the same crappy club but very glad we’re friends.
Everyone’s gone to their respective homes now, and I’m about to hop in the jacuzzi with Charli and Chip. An admitted weirdness of mine — I don’t like to go in the jacuzzi even though I love most everything that’s hot. When you get out, you’re wet, and then the cool night air hits you and you’re freezing. But I love those people out there becoming prunes, so I’m going to go join them.
Thank you, God, for so much good stuff today.
