One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats. And, let me tell you, I do believe that I packed more small treats into this last few days than most people do in their lifetime. I am SO grateful! I am such a lucky girl. Life, really is, so good. What kind of special treats you ask? Well, in the last four days I have been to a reggae concert (dressed in a tam with dreadlocks), attended a reunion of high school friends (where I 'owled' on a wall in my friend's kitchen) spent a little time at an Indian casino (and thoroughly enjoyed gambling), delighted in bananas foster, margaritas, a taco bar, fresh bread with real butter, chocolate brownies with sprinkles, bacon and sausage, chicken fried steak with gravy, sliders, paella, and (too many glasses of) Chardonnay....I spent time at a seaside resort, the race track at Santa Anita and have the amazing pleasure of being able to tell you that I have now been to a cock fighting farm. (What? You haven't?) And, I experienced GREAT joy in the company of work friends, old school friends, my family, sweet horses and giant chickens. To top it ALL off, EVERY single minute of the weekend was FILLED to the brim with LOVE and LAUGHTER and CONVERSATION and HAPPINESS and ADVENTURE!
There's a whole lot of lost time to make up for. And it's happening...one small treat at a time.
