The last couple of months have been very busy and very stressful. Busy at the office as well as with my volunteer work as the annual event that I co-chair was last weekend. Now that the event is over, I can breath a little easier and slow down a bit. Work is still busy, but one of the perks at my office is that they periodically do "drawings" for Magic basketball games. I won two tickets to last Thursday's game.
If you look on the "jumbotron" you will see the back of my favorite player, Hedo Turkoglu (#15).
We lost, but it was close up to the very end. All in all, a good night. Free tickets. Free parking. Free beer from the friend I took with me. And I caught a free t-shirt :-) (Free - one of the most beautiful words in the English language.)
Today, I was able to volunteer at Bike Fest in Sanford, Florida with the Ribbon Riders. These are an amazing group of female bikers with a mission to promote breast cancer awareness and provide assistance to women and men in
Central Florida who are fighting the disease. They are professional women who love to ride motorcycles and strive to make a positive difference in our community.
I don't ride myself, but as they do so much good and are such nice women, I try to help them out when I can. (And when it's someone else's event and you are just working, it's so much more fun :-) )
Here's the sunrise over Lake Monroe, which is what greeted me as I arrived in Sanford.
A great blue heron...
...and here he is flying away when I got too close.
Here are the Ribbon Riders' tents:
And when I was "cleaning" yesterday (please ignore the dust in the photo), I found last year's "annual leaf" from my mom.
Wishing everyone a great week!
