It’s the first day of summer, and I am so excited! I just love the feeling summer gives me. Summer is about being a kid. No matter how old we get, we always feel like we did when we were 21. It’s time off, vacations, and just getting a load off. It seems like everyone is happier in the summer. Not to mention, it’s time to hit the pool! With the temperature hitting the triple digits here in Dallas later this week, I thought I’d share my favorite smoothie recipe to help you cool off.
I'm here at the hospital with my mom as she's getting a cardioversion. Check out this cool way to treat a nurse's station/concierge, etc. The staff really likes it because it gives them a little bit of privacy.
Life has a way of testing your mental strength when you least expect it. The true sign of mental strength doesn't lie in what you do; it's what you don't and absolutely won't do. The greater the challenge, the more difficult it is to respond with mental fortitude.
Ok, I knew I had to have closed-toe shoes, but I forgot to put some in my car today. NOTE TO SELF: You also need to have 4-inch sleeves and it's helpful to have socks when wearing other people's boots!
We hiked up 3500 feet through challenging terrain, including a lot of snow trail (very slick) to reach the top of Exit Glacier, part of the Harding Icefield outside of Seward, Alaska. Three 10-year-olds, too, including my son! Needless to say, it was quite an accomplishment after all my surgeries and injuries over the last year and a half!
I met this cute couple, Anna Mae and Fred, on the Katy Trail in Dallas while I was walking on Saturday. They live at Five Star Senior Living Premier Residences of Dallas a few minutes north of the trail and had driven down for a walk. Anna Mae was walking with a difficult metal walker so I asked if she wanted to upgrade! We just dropped off her new walker which even has a seat for resting!
