My Favorite Things

Tevas and Kayaks
Tevas and Kayaks

Today is my birthday and this is a picture of some of my favorite things.  And not just my toes.  On my feet are my Teva sandles.   I have had them for over 3 years now and when I am having fun they are usually on my feet.  They have climbed Mayan ruins in Belize, and hiked up side canyons in the Grand Canyon.   Sometimes I just wear them around town.   Today I was kayaking.

My other favorite thing in this picture is my kayak.   Well, the very tip of my kayak.   It is short and squat, a little like me.  But very stable.  It has yet to dump me in the lake when I don’t want to go swimming.  It is getting a little banged up and faded, but that is because I use it a lot.

In this picture is also the little lake near my house where I go kayaking. I am not going to tell you the name of the lake or where it is.  Not many people know about this little lake and so it is usually empty when I want to go kayaking.

Here is a better picture of my kayak.  And the pretty little lake I like to kayak in.   You can also see another one of my favorite things inside my kayak.  Right up front there is my camelback.  It is my little backpack that holds water, lunch, and a few odds and ends.  It has gone a lot of the same places my Tevas have gone.

So today has been a good day.   I started with a nice walk in the local park.  The flowers were beautiful. I didn’t have my camera with me so you will have to take my word for it.   When I got home I showered and then went to lunch with my mother-in-law.  We had Mongolian BBQ at the local Asian buffet.  Then I went through the buffet and picked out my favorite foods.  Sushi and cream cheese wontons.   For desert I had soft serve ice cream with chocolate sprinkles, peanuts and bananas.   Then I went kayaking.   Now hubby is making BBQ for dinner, and I hear that dear daughter is bringing home chocolate cake.

I hope your day has been as nice!

Happy Birthday to Me!
