Happy 101.2

Time to finish this project.   If you missed it, you can find the first part here.

6. Books

I’ve been an avid and voracious reader since I learned to read.  Reading is my all-time favorite past-time.  I carry a book with me pretty much everywhere.  It comes in handy for those times when I have to wait (in line, for someone, etc.).

7. Yoga

Yoga and meditation keep me on an even keel.  A good yoga workout makes me sweat while simultaneously relaxing and rejuvenating me.

8. Hiking and walking

Walking and hiking are my two favorite forms of exercise, especially hiking.  This is a good time to mention that I’m doing well with my walking mileage goal for the year.  The total so far:  204.99 miles.

9. Spending time with family

Whether we hang out at home or go somewhere to do something, I always enjoy time with my family.  Having grandchildren to spend time with is icing on the cake, with a cherry and whipped cream on top.

10. Pedicures

My feet deserve the occasional treat after all the hiking and walking they do, and nothing spoils them quite as well as a good, relaxing pedicure.  And my feet look pretty, too.

I tried to take a photo of my feet in the snow after the pedicure I had yesterday but none of the photos turned out well.  I made several attempts before deciding there is no way to make my feet look good when they’re turning blotchy and blue from the frigidness of the snow.  Plus the color I picked this time looks lovely in the sunlight, not so lovely in the snow.  The cropped version above is the best I can do (since it doesn’t show too much of the blotchy blueness).

I’m supposed to pass this award on to ten other bloggers, but I’m going to wimp out and nominate everyone on my blogroll as I think you all deserve an award.  Feel free to pick it up and do your own list of ten things you like.  🙂
