Bandolier of Fragrant Oils

 

Not exactly the wild west of fragrant oils. 

But it's effective anyway.  ;-)

View from Starbucks

This was a nice table view from Starbucks in Potomac. 

Beautiful little brick courtyard on the side. 

Tables and chairs outside and in. 

This one had this great little pink flowers on the table. 

Happy Sunday!  ;-)

Looks Like Fun

Three-wheelers are not just for babies. 

This one is pretty cool. 

I bet it's fun to drive around town. ;-)

Sunflower and Heart Day

Nice to have a coffee next to a sunflower and heart. 

Sitting and relaxing under a blue umbrella. 

Great way to start off a day!  ;-)

Thanksgiving Beach

 

Everybody is getting ready for the beach.

Don your bathing suits.

Set up the chairs.

Get the inflatables ready.

Jump into the ocean waves.

Who needs turkey on Thanksgiving.  ;-)

My Big Kahuna

So my new massage chair came today.

Kahuna LM-7000 in this amazing red color. 

It was awesome how the chair came completely assembled. 

Just plugged it in, jumped on, and started it up. 

I was lying back in a spaceship reclining position getting kneaded, tapped, knocked, and shiatsu'ed.

This was better than I had imagined it would be. 

I am hoping this helps with aches, pains, and sleep. 

I've got my big Kahuna now!  ;-)

Street Art Florida

Thought this was some nice street art in Fort Lauderdale. 

The water and boating, the high-rise condos and hotels, and the beautiful blue skyline. 

The good Caribbean with sun, sand, and water.

Looks and feels so good!  ;-)

Nice Sitting Area

Thought this was a pretty nice lobby sitting area.

Especially liked the wall hanging combining both painting and light display. 

On the opposite side of the room was a glass wall/windows, and the light of the boy and girl holding hands reflected in there as well.

Had a nice relaxing and high-tech type effect on the room. 

Just glad the light display didn't move; I think that would be too much and actually sickening.

Anyway, off into the sunset. ;-)

Sleep Number Got My Number

I am very excited about ordering a Sleep Number bed. 

My good friend got one and recommended it!

Went to the store today and tried them out. 

I was really amazed, especially since I have some significant back pain that I am dealing with. 

I am hoping, G-d willing, for some pain relief and some extra Zzz sleep! ;-)

Beautiful Japanese Pagoda

Japanese pagoda signifying the elements of earth, air/sky, fire and water.

Beautiful integration of stone into natural surroundings. 

Centered, self-reflection, mindfulness, enlightenment, peace. 

You can see this at Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden in Delray Beach, Florida.

Now That's A Deck Chair

Love this new deck chair, finally!

Life is good!

Keep it simple!

Have a pillow to match.  

Last chair in stock.  

Grabbed the floor model. 

Reminds me of the Patagonia brand.  ;-)

Shave And A Haircut

I remember as a kid people would sing a jingle:
Shave and a haircut, dum dum.


This statue of the guy in the chair getting the shave and haircut is sort of nostalgic to me. 

Always sort of relaxing to sit back and get cleaned up!

Especially the hot lather on your face in that reclining position. 

Then of course, all is well until the gunslinger barges in and ruins everything. ;-)

Artechouse = Art + Tech + House



This place was really cool in Washington, D.C. 

Artechouse = Art + Tech + House. 

Great immersive technology, art, music, dance, and light show. 

Highly recommend it!

This exhibit "Lucid Motion" was by Japanese artist Daito Manabe X Rhizomatiks Research.

They also had a nice augmented reality display. 

Had fun with the clan. 

Hope you enjoy!

Go Years of Retirement

Thought this was an interesting perspective on retirement.

There are three phases:

1) Go-Go:  You retire and are eager to enjoy your newfound freedom, and you spend the time and money to really do the pursuits and travel that you always wanted. 

2) Slow-Go: After the initial adventurism and spending, you settle in some more and spend your time on quiet activities, socializing, and relaxing. 

3) No-Go: This is the wind down phase, where you spend most of your time at home and at a certain point, may need some assistance to do everyday activities. 

Obviously, the last phase is sort of depressing, but it too is a part of life.  

Like a bell-shaped curve, we are born, grow, mature, and then decline.

This is the cycle of life for every living thing. 

It takes maturity and courage to face it and to make the most out of every single moment that we are blessed with.  ;-)
