Adding a Little Zest

Every once in a while something surprising will enter into the routine of life and add a little zest. Like...

* A short getaway to a friend's house. Kathy and I have been friends since I was 17-years-old. We met in college and have remained friends all these many, many, MANY years. Spending time with her these past two days added a new zest to my thanksgiving. I am truly thankful to have this enduring friendship!
* Winning a contest!!! On Tuesday, I mozied over to A Pair of Bartletts, just to see what fun thing she would be blogging about, and lo and behold - I was the WIINER of her "Bee My Guest" contest! That added zest to my heartbeats, because I was so dang excited to see my name as 'Winner'. On Tuesdays she has a special blogger, and all you have to do to enter is leave an encouraging comment for her guest. Then, she randomly draws a name, and ta-da - this time it was moi! (Thank you, again, PoB!) Give her a visit!
* A love note....ahhhhh, be still my heart. My husband wrote me a sweet little message on our dry erase board. It added zest to the stardust!
* Figs! Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and that's probably the reason I love figs so - fresh ones are very hard to find! On my way home from Kathy's, I stopped at a fruit stand, and there they were... freshly picked just before I got there. They added zest to my lunch, because I ate three of them on the drive home! YUM!

Adding a little zest flavors up your life!
