Flying A Kite

Flying a kite brings back so many happy childhood memories for me! The last couple of springs I have worked a lot. So this spring I am determined to spend more time outside. I have made a list of fun things that I like to do that I haven't done in a long time.

One of them is flying a kite! Yesterday there was a gentle breeze so I took my kite and went to the park that is a couple blocks from my house. It was the perfect afternoon break! I came back ready to work for a couple of more hours!

Are there things that you love to do that you haven't done for awhile? What are they?

Today is a beautiful spring day for flying a kite!

Taking The Afternoon Off

Today I took the afternoon off! It was spontaneous and fun! We went to an afternoon matinee! We had pop and popcorn! Sometimes you have to put your work aside for a couple of hours and do something that is out of character!

When was the last time you took the afternoon off and what did you do that was spontaneous and fun?

I Am Proud I Live In America's 2nd Fittest City Minneapolis-St. Paul

I am proud I live in America's 2nd Fittest City Minneapolis-St. Paul! In the second annual American Fitness Index (AFI), a publication released by the American College of Sports Medicine we ranked #2!

The index measures each city's performance on 30 indicators, including acres of parkland, death rate from cardiovascular disease, the number of primary care physicians per capita and the percent of residents who bicycle or walk to work. The metrics were gathered from government and non-profit organizations. (For the complete methodology, visit www.americanfitnessindex.org.)

I read the article on Forbes.com tonight! Now I'm off for a bike ride around the lake! Enjoy your night!

It was a beautiful spring day yesterday so I spent some time daydreaming! I sat outside in my back yard and looked up into the sky. The sky was so blue and the clouds were so white. I let my mind wander.

I find daydreaming so relaxing. My stream of consciousness is spontaneous. Afterwards I always feel invigorated and refreshed.

I would love to do this every day. Maybe I should make time each day for daydreaming! Who knows where it will lead me!

Writing Blog Posts

It is a beautiful Friday night of the long Memorial Day weekend and I am working on writing blog posts! I should be relaxing in a hammock enjoying an umbrella drink, so why am I inside, on the computer, focusing on my blog?

I am writing blog posts because it has been an entire month since my last blog post and I'm feeling really guilty! I have been blogging for 6 months. I started off slowly, but then after a month or so I really got into blogging and I started to blog every day. Since then I have blogged more infrequently. I'm not sure why. I don't have any excuses.

Today I decided that I will begin again. I will write a few extra blog posts tonight so I have a few prepared for the next few days. I want to be good at blogging. I want to develop a following. To do this I will need to be diligent and make the committment to writing blog posts!

Now I'm off to relax in my hammock and enjoy my umbrella drink!
