a brush with bliss

Thanks to my friend Kim I've had a little pampering in the last couple of days. She posted a challenge on her blog, the prize of which is a collection of fabric that, in my eye, is to die for! How much more incentive do I need? Her challenge was to make a plan to pamper oneself (details on the blog). Hmm. I thought I could handle that!

After a little tumble in the yard the other day when McKinlee decided to take me for a, well, let's just say spin, I knew that certain muscle groups would be feeling the aches of that unexpected adventure. With a physical therapy appointment scheduled for the next morning I got on the phone and was able to wrangle an appointment with a massage therapist following the PT. Woohoo!

But not to stop there (that truly was a therapeutic massage), I determined to pamper myself yesterday with a pedicure. Ahhhhh, bliss. The salon features these fabulous massage chairs attached to the foot bath. No sooner was I in the chair to begin soaking my tootsies than I hit the remote control and let the chair begin its magic movements. I don't know quite how long the entire pedicure lasted (from first soak to dried polish), but I can tell you that most of Let's Make a Deal and the first ten minutes of Ellen were within my view from the chair. Did I mention bliss? I just closed my eyes for most of the duration of this experience and luxuriated. Oh, and they offer wine. Did I mention bliss?

Kim, how can I thank you?

PS. Another new feature in the latest Picasa that I discovered last night: you can customize the ratio of your collage instead of using preset sizes that were the previous defaults. LOVE IT!

What a great treat for yourself!

I've only ever had one pedicure before - my boss made me go with her one time LOL. I have pretty sensitive feet (tend to involuntarily kick people who touch them), but I really enjoyed that experience. The person who did my pedicure (pedicurist?) was impressed with how soft my feet were - I put lotion on them EVERY morning after my shower. I can't stand dry feet (or hands).
