Since the bike was back in Fort Worth awaiting new wheels, today was a day for all sorts of treats. My sister regularly attends a yoga class on Wednesday mornings, and so I was able to accompany her. Jan gave us a great workout! And then, a real treat - a massage that Becky had arranged for me. Yes, I know I had one not even a week ago. But who can resist a massage? And Elvira has a magic touch. Sigh.

Becky and her husband Jim live on a lake, and so we also had a chance to go play on the lake. Now, I will ride the bike with Roger anywhere - and I have - but I didn't choose to go tandem with him on the SeaDoo! Instead, I chose to ride with Becky, who took us around the lake and up the creek for a great look at some of the wild life there. Since I am a bird watcher, it was a particular treat to be able to see some egrets and kingfishers over the water as we cruised along. We also got a good view of an osprey over the lake.

And then there was dinner - more home-cooking and a chance to visit with my niece and nephew and his girlfriend. We had some great goodies from our cousins in Croatia, who had sent Becky and Jim home with a suitcase full of their home made brandies, meats and jams.

|Jim, Paula, me, Becky and Rachel with a toast - Hvala!|
So, that's what I did on my day off - ate, drank, played, rested, and enjoyed my family. All is well.
