What impact are your words leaving on someone today?
Just the other day my Mom told me a story about my Aunt going out to lunch with a friend. While waiting she casually complimented someone she didn't know. Before leaving the restaurant the lady (she complimented) came over and thanked her for brightening her day.
It's such a simple thing to say something nice.
Do you remember the last compliment you received? How about one you gave?
Have a great Friday!

It is in Quebec City where I learned how to experiment in the kitchen.
I will always treasure those throw-together meals on Rue Marie Rollet when one
phone call turned into a table full of people, countless bottles of wine and hours of conversation.
Some of my favorite meals have been made with some of my favorite people.
Julia Child started passionately cooking when she was 32 and has reminded us all
we can be who we want to be with some effort....

but I did learn how to use a paddle board this week.
(talented and crazy) are doing yoga on them.
I can stand....that's about it.
Have you used a paddle board? Would you?

I've got a lot on my mind lately. If only this is what it looked like.
We are already 7 days into August...my Michigan clock is ticking and I want to slow it down.
In the next week or so we'll have an idea of where we are moving to and...and...I'm not ready.
That being said, it's been the best summer that I can remember, so I'll stop my whining.
What do you to relieve stress?

Are you watching the Olympics?
While in Lexington we watched a little each evening. Talk about nail biting. Entertaining. Inspiring.
I could become addicted, but we are back at the cottage where there isn't a television and for that I am thankful.
Well, I guess we could watch a wee bit on the computer.... (wink)
What has been your favorite moment or event so far?

We've been in Lexington, Kentucky since Saturday.
It's another part of the country that has swept me off my feet. The rolling hills, countless horses and southern hospitality conjures up feelings of wonder and delight. My in-laws only add to the splendor.
Each a.m. I go for a run, (I'll call it running when in actuality it's somewhere between a run/walk/crawl) but stop and talk
to each horse along the way. A long morning "run" filled with anthropomorphic conversations
eventually leads to a new list of friends. When I finally arrive back at my in-laws house it's pool time.
We went to downtown Lexington for dinner and a taping of Wood Songs Old-Time Radio Hour.
Nearly every Monday evening the historical Kentucky Theater is filled with a live-audience to hear grassroots music that broadcasts to over 500 radio stations worldwide.
We had the pleasure of hearing Adian Legg and The Dunwells both outstanding British performers.
(It you click on the link you can hear how talented they are for yourself.)
Downtown Lexington is relatively small, but full of charm.
We are going to a few horse farms and a distillery tomorrow. As for today, we are going to graze all day, sip some cocktails and enjoy each others company....poolside.
Have you been to Kentucky?
Do you like Bluegrass music?
