I love watching the Olympics. Although it is made up of the best of many different countries, as we watch the efforts of these athletes, how can you not be inspired, and experience the joy of a winner no matter where they call home? It is the height of achievement just to be chosen to compete. I have always dreamed of going to the Olympics. If I play my cards right, maybe I can go to the Paris games in 2024.
The weekend is upon us, and I think of what I need to accomplish....although if I don't get it all done, the beauty of it is that I can do it the next weekend :D 20 years ago I would have pushed myself to get everything done, no matter how exhausting. I don't waste time, but I strive to embrace all of what comes my way and find a way to enjoy even the smallest of things ~ a beautiful flower in my garden, or getting that spot out of one of my favorite shirts, haha.
Yesterday I took the afternoon off to help the "baking committee" to make koulourakis, a Greek cookie. I believe my friend (who is the kitchen queen, lol) said we made around 900 of them. Boy, it was hot in that kitchen! The baking will go on for weeks. Once baked and packaged, it will be frozen until the Greek festival in Oct. The baking is scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday, so I won't be able to participate often, but it's fun to do.
***Sioux update: After a particularly bad day on Wednesday, she had a much better day yesterday. Romeo is going above and beyond. I think the end is in sight, but Romeo doesn't think so. Yesterday evening I told him I would support whatever he wants to do.....what I didn't have the courage to say was that it is killing me to watch it.
Better shower and get going....enjoy your weekend!
