Anyway, I am trying to rustle up some enthusiasm for the day. I have had a lovely couple days with my sister and niece, we have done some really nice things and it has been spectacular to spend some unexpected time with them. I had today planned for a week or so, and I will be kayaking with a friend who I hadn't seen in a year! My friend Jen who I constantly channel when I am paddling. I always imagine myself kayaking like her, relaxed, calm, and not working too hard to accomplish what needs to be done- and by that I mean she never looks like she is expending unnecessary energy. If this sounds negative at all, I don't mean it that way. I think she is the zen master of kayak!!
I am a tired girl today. I have not been sleeping the best, and I have not been getting the "cardio" that I am used to and that actually wears on me quite a bit. Basically, I have worn myself to a frazzle and I am feeling the effects. I need a vacation from myself I think.
Today has some promise of surprises as well as some great friends sharing their thoughts as we paddle on a lake. Sounds like a restaurant stop will happen for lunch- paddle up dining anyone? This is cool beyond belief.
The next few days will also be a whirlwind of company, and Ella, and Flambeaurama and cooking and hopefully a lot of family time. I hope it doesn't rain Sunday, as the big parade will be going on as well.
So I hope I didn't sound ungrateful or spoiled or something, but it is not my most happy morning today. But hey, it is my birthday month and my blog and I can whine a little if I want to! :)
So I am going to have a little more coffee and get ready for the day and wait for surprises and for Ella and the Mad-first son and his lovely Sarah and anything else that the day throws at me...
And it is sure to be a joy!
