We sang a little song when I was a child that went, “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.” I love all of my old friends from where we used to live. But I am excited to be making new friends out here in the Hill Country.
Tuesday I met one of these new friends in town for lunch. She is a Type A and her husband is Type O. We had fun comparing the foods we are just naturally attracted to.
We had lunch at a tea room. They had several kinds of iced tea, but all of them were black tea based. They had three kinds of green tea, but all were served as hot tea. It may not be summery enough for me to enjoy swimming yet, but it is way too warm for me to enjoy hot tea. I must have looked really disappointed, because the waitress said, “I’ll bring you a pot of tea and a carafe of ice.” I chose green tea with passion fruit (super beneficial on both counts) Oooh it was good.
I tried something new at the fitness room. I do a program on the elliptical trainer that goes up and down in intensity. When I am on the low intensity, I take my hands off of the machine and work on balance and core strength. I know it is a good idea, because my muscles are really sore. Ouch!
