being present

Happy Sunday all. The weather today is just gorgeous. My morning started with coffee and fidding with my new ipad2.  It was a weekend splurge and I totally deserve.  Unfortunately, my weekend found me at this taco stand near my old neighborhood. For as much as I disliked the old "barrio", I totally miss spots like this...

 My eating continued down hill at BIL house.  There was carne asada, tostadas and enselada de nopal (cactus salad). I stuck with the carne asada and nopales until I saw the chip... Let's just say I had crumbs all over my face by the end of the night.  I've been off my paleo eating for 5 days now.  Not to frettt...

I started my Sunday morning with a bach of turkey kelbalsa and veggies.

 Then visited with my sister and planned a family baseball game for next week.  Daniel wanted to head to the movies but honestly? The weather is too pretty to sit inside. I grabbed my bike and headed out.

 Saw some turkeys on the way to Fair Oaks. Today was the first time I rode in heavy traffic. I was nervous and because I don't have a helmet decided to ride on the back roads where the gorgeous houses are located. How lucky am I that I have streets and streets like this within walking distance of my house.

 I kept snapping random photos and this one makes me laugh.  Bootie-li-cious....
It's still pretty gorgeous outside. Makes me excited for spring. I absolutely love riding my bike. It's the closest I can come to being a kid. As I rode, I just breathed in the wonderful smells of outdoors and thanked God for blessing me the ability to ride a bike. I know that may sound silly but it's important to appreciate the small things and not take too much for granted.
What small thing are you grateful for?
