May 13th: Walk Barefoot in the Park

This task might be a little dangerous in Denver due to the obscene amount of geese in the parks these days but lucky for me the park near my house is pretty clear of geese, meaning no worry of all those droppings. 


So today was just a nice afternoon to walk barefoot in the park. Of course I brought Mia along and she had a blast running around. She is now sleeping very soundly. 

April 29th: Stretch

It is getting to the point where everyday when I do something new I feel the need to remind myself I should always be doing these things. Yet, I have tried so many new things so far this year and pushed myself to do new things that I am beginning to forget some of those things I started off with. (Well, this is a rambling.)

Anyway, my point is, it is nice to have this blog because I can look back on the year and say “oh yes, I wanted to remind myself to do that more often”. 

This morning was one of this enexperiences. I found a morning stretch routine online: Morning Stretches.

They are nothing difficult. Just something to wake you up and get you moving. My initial rant was because I need to remind myself to do this more often. My body feels better. My mind feels better. And my morning grogginess is not so prevalent.

April 24th: Listen to Ambient Noise for a Few Hours

This might be one of my new favorite things.

I have been living in Colorado for over five years now and one thing I miss about Florida is the sound of rain… nearly all the time. So in my search to complete this I found this video of TEN HOURS of rain and light thunder.

Ambient Noise – Rain
It is so calming and soothing. I fell asleep and stayed asleep for a long time, which I do not do often. But then listen to it again when I wake up as a sort of meditation. The funny thing is, I half expect to walk outside to a rain shower… 😂☔️

April 19th: Lay in a Hammock

Spring is here! And the year is just going to get better and better as tasks on my list get more relaxing, more enjoyable, and more outdoorsy!

Today I got home from work just before 6pm. I took my book that I am trying to get through, The Red Tent (which is getting better by the page!) and went out back to lay in the hammock for a while.

It was gorgeous. 70 degrees, blue skies, and a nice breeze.


Mia ran around the backyard and only tried to join me in the hammock once… but was pretty terrified by the hammocks movement.

I got to spend almost an entire hour reading before it got windy and there was a chill in the air. Clouds started to appear and were rather dark so I ventured back inside.
