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.  🙂

    I love the “toe pic”!

    I like your pick of ten things you like. I don’t think most of your readers are surprised by any of them. It’s good to know we “know you”!

    • Robin says:

      Thanks, Corina. 🙂

      One of these days I might surprise ya’all. 😉

      (Side note: I’m note sure where or when I fell into “ya’all.” Probably when we lived down south. But I grew up in New Jersey where “youse guys” is what I really think, rather than write.)

    some interesting titles on your bookshelf Robin

    and cryotherapy for feet!!! owww

    • Robin says:

      Cryotherapy! Thank you, Kel. I’ve been trying to think of that word for a while now and keep forgetting to look it up. I saw a news story about it and thought that’s what I need after some of my morning workouts. I guess I should just step outside.

      If you see any books that interest you, let me know. I’ll be glad to ship ’em off to you when I’m finished.

    Oh my! Look at those books! I love, love books… having them and reading them. I’m a voracious reader too. The photo of the woods is spectacular and how very sweet the photo of your granddaughter bowling… great shot too!

    By the way, Robin, we have moved to our own website (been very busy with that) and have a new photoblog: http://www.surfaceandsurfacephotography.com/photoblog/

    • Robin says:

      I’m so far behind on things lately, Anna. I’ll get the link to your website changed soon. Thanks for letting me know. And congratulations on getting it up and running!! 😀
