I Walked Home Tonight

We'd had a "Ready, Steady, Cook" meets "MasterChef" activity for the Young Women. Two teams of girls had 40 minutes to prepare a three-course meal using random ingredients. I'm really impressed with the pretty & tasty combos they came up with. I'm glad I was a judge.

When I got outside (about 9:20), it was still bright. The sun had set, but twilight looked like a sunny winter day. So I walked the mile home.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how it is that some people just enjoy their lives. What does it take to be happy-go-lucky? I know what it isn't: it isn't limiting myself with excuses why I shouldn't. It's not even asking for myself permission to do the things I want to do. It's just doing it. Be happy-GO-lucky! Get moving. Don't wait to be happy to go. Don't wait to be lucky to go. Just GO! The luck will follow you & happiness will catch up. So tonight I took a walk.

You don't say?

Rosie just walked up to Jason & declared, "I want a banana, I said."
