Some New Things with a review

No excuse for my absence, just laziness. My search for “New Things” has continued,here are a few of my latest with a little review.

First a place to go, RISD Museum on South Main Street in Providence, RI. I attended the Impressionist Exhibit a couple of weeks ago. The exhibit itself was worth the visit, but there was so much more, I spent two hours wandering about with a group of new acquaintances from one of my Meet Up Groups.  The museum also has a good coffee shop and a more than adaquate gift shop, it offers free admission on Sundays. I’m embarrased to say this was my first visit , but it won’t be my last.

Secondly, something healthy: Zeal For Life, is a nutritional drink from Zurvita, that was reccomended to me by my brother. I decided to give it try the beginning of this month and since starting Zeal, I have more energy, I’m not falling asleep in the middle of the day,my mood is better I feel great! Zeal is all natural and is easily absorbed and assimilated by the body. Believe me I was very skeptical when I first tried zeal and I honestly have made no other changes in my diet, or life that could account for my feeling 10 to 15 years younger!

Number three, a skin product; Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer. This was a freebie from one of my runs this past fall and I used it on a whim two weeks ago. Anyone who knows me, knows that every winter I get dry skin that gets irritated on both hip bones (weird I know). Every year I look for something to relieve the irritation, laundry soap, lotions (some very expensive) soaps all natural ect… the list is endless, until I tried this it works!

The fourth thing on my list is ironically the book 52 Lists for Happiness, weekly journaling for positivity, balance and joy by Moorea Seal. I’m a list maker from way back and this sort of thing appealed to me right away. I was also looking for something to fill the gap after completing the Love Your Life in 30 Days. So far it has been fun but also eyeopening. It gets you to list things that make you smile, you’re good at ect… It has given me a better appreciation of myself.

I haven’t started the fifth thing but wanted to mention it here it is a Tony Robbins CD course The Time of Your Life, three steps to take controll of your life. I start that tomorrow. A review or at least a mention will be made in my next posting.

Til then check out a thing or two from my list, you won’t regret any!

This brings my total 46! fourteen more before the 24th of March!

New Sundays

These past few Sundays have been about getting on my bicycle and finding a lunch treat…

I’m fortunate enough to live close enough to an outstanding bike path in one of the most beautiful coastal areas in the world! The East Bay Bike Path is a rails to trails path that runs 15 miles between the gorgeous town of Bristol RI, to Rhode Island’s capitol city Providence — Along the way, are incredible views and venues to enjoy.

For three of the past four weeks I’ve ventured out onto the path for a bike ride. I’ve enjoyed visiting downtown Bristol and had an ice cream lunch 1st at Grey’s ice-cream annex and yesterday at the Daily Scoop where I tried for the first time chocolate espresso crunch.  After that delightful adventure I stopped at the SchoolYard Farmer’s Market at Hope and Main!  Where I was able to pick up some local honey and onions.  Last week’s ride took me to East Providence and a delightful smoothie at Edible Arrangements in Warren.

There is something wonderful about a bike ride, being unplugged and outdoors at a pace where all the senses are evoked; the sounds of birds chirping, waves crashing on the rocks, seeing baby rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels, and osprey, smelling the fragrant flowers along the path, feeling the cool breeze on your skin and then the taste of the promised lunch treat. This is one New Thing that I’m going to try and keep up with as long as time and the weather permit.

Do yourself a favor get on your bike be a kid again and find an adventure!
