August Happiness Challenge ~ Aug 3


Shannon has inspired me to climb on board the August Happiness Challenge wagon. I know I've sort of disappeared from the blogdom a bit lately, and I'm finding this challenge teasing me back gently! So I'm diving in even if it is day 3!

Today what's making me happy is a French pedicure! One of my friends was so kind as to pass along to me a spa gift certificate that she couldn't use. I love the spa! Going to the spa is like a mini vacation to me. I feel relaxed, pampered. One of the things I really appreciate is that it tends to be quiet. Quiet is something I almost never experience and so I really appreciate those rare and precious moments when I do. This week I was able to go to the spa, relax in the steamroom all by myself, use the whirpool, sit in a room full of candles and orchids, drink herbal tea and read and then get this beautiful French pedicure. So today when I look at my feet I'm happy and smiling!

I like the pedicure & the sandals. I get pedis a lot; no manis, tho, as my hands are too busy to look nice.

I knew you'd be right all over this challenge Jamie! It's right up your alley.

What pretty feet, good for you for indulging.

I know what you mean about the quiet, it has a profoundly positive impact on me too which is why I am living on an island and have lived on a mountain. Even here it is still rare. Enjoy those moments.
