I did something radical yesterday. I decided that there would be no pit-stop eating while doing my errands/activities around town. And as I thought about this-I truly began to see how often I do this. As a matter of fact-if I'm brutally honest-my food pit-stops are often my primary goal with the errand being secondary (pathetic!). So in an effort to get off this binging wagon, Wendy's or Subway would NOT be a detour. So here's how it went:
Library with my youngest son: We had fun picking out lots of books for him, and I located THREE historical fiction books that I am so excited to read! I also chatted with two friends while checking out. And as we were coming home around the bend, lil son says, "I like your hair. It has pizazz!" (ie auburn hi lites!) Now what could be a better reward than good books and friends and time with my man-child??? And to top it off...I have PIZAZZ!!!
Running to hubby's work to fax paperwork: It's dusk, so we decide to take my PT Cruiser convertible (Cutie Pie is her name!) cruising through the countryside. And there are some lovely things to see in my neck of the woods: fields and pastures, barns, rivers, dense green foliage, old homes and churches, tomato stands, cows and horses... and we even got to make a wish on the first star...and see all the colors of night sky....while driving with Fleetwood Mac playing and the wind in our hair.
I have decided that all that peace, contentment, and love... taste just right....all by themselves.
