I woke up feeling great! I cleaned myself up and headed out the door. I was on a mission to see some friends that are such beautiful souls.
My friend Dele was doing the Surf City AIDS Ride. Esplanade Park, in the Capitola Village, close to where I live, was the first stop on their map.
I loved cheering on the riders and they came in. Then here came Dele and her friend, Richard. Woo hoo!!! Right on riders!
Can you believe that she was doing 65 miles that day?! Isn’t that just amazing! She has done the AIDS Ride several times as well. I am just so proud of what she does for others. Constantly! She is always an inspiration to me.
As for Kristofer, he will be doing the AIDS ride for his first time coming up. I am so proud of his will and the endeavors he pursues. Another true inspiration! For sure!
What a wonderful way to start my day. Also, to set the tone for the rest of my week. 🙂
After dropping the kiddos at school I came home, made myself a little breakfast, then took off for a walk. Headphones on, hit play on the podcast and off I went.
I never get bored walking around my home. So many beautiful things to look at. So many different paths to take. Every single one of the breathtaking.
My walks each day have been making me feel so very good. Good for the mind. Good for my soul. Good for my mood. Good for my body. Just so many ways to list.
Here are a few pics from this wonderful town that I call home. Enjoy! 🙂
What an amazing day this was. A field trip with the 5th graders! Woo hoo!
We met with a Guide, by the name of Todd. I believe that he is a Survival Trainer. Anyway, he was fantastic. On point. Patient with the kids and super informative. I would love to take my family back for a day, or even a weekend and just have him teach us. Great stuff!
We saw Banana Slugs, raccoon tracks at the creeks edge, learned how to walk like a fox and be aware of our surroundings. We were shown what we need to make fire and how to do it. We made shelters with what was available in our surroundings.
I could just imagine what else we could have learned in a smaller group. I was very impressed. It made me really think about booking some really quality time with my family. Away from the house. Away from electricity and the distractions that it brings. Back to family, talking, stories, bonding. I miss that so much. xoxo
All in all, I must say that my mornings have been amazing. It usually works out that if my morning stays calm, then the rest of my days does as well. Kind of setting the day, if you will. I love my life when it falls into place this way. This month has been a very hard one for me. A new chapter in the book of learning for sure! As for today, I couldn’t be happier. 🙂
