30 Days of Fun: Day Two

We spent Sunday on the river.

This is part of a project to do something fun every day for 30 days. Please join in.

    Sigh. I really think that there’s nothing more fun/soothing/awesome than swimming in a natural body of water.

    Also, regarding two posts down: thinking of you and your family, and hoping things get better soon. Hang in there.

    Are those your legs? Holy smokes, girl. What planet are you from. Envy.

    I’m so sorry things are not going smoothly. . .it sounds like you and I would be two peas in a pod right now. Or maybe two grenades in a. . .small, fragile space. I’ll just raise the white flag on being poetic, before I tax my brain too much. Anyway. Please, do share where you got those shoes! I’m hoping you’ll share and that you got them recently, because those are exactly the summer shoes I’ve been looking for! For the past three summers!

    @Kara, I’m not sure where Maggie’s are from, but you might look into Bensimon sneakers. They’re similar, at least!

    Maggie,
    I read this last night, then went to Day 1, then to the Matt Cutts video / TED link. Until my dreams last night, I wasn’t wholly aware how inspired I was. First, though we don’t know each other and I find it odd to dream about strangers, you were in my dream last night. We were sitting at an amazing round wooden table in a field, talking about Matt’s video and your divorce. I was wanting to console you. You told me how much the 30 day project was helping you. When I woke up this morning, I decided that I was going to get my butt off the couch and walk my dogs each day for the next 30 days. I used to do this every morning, for years. Then I lost my job, then I got depressed, then I got lazy, then I gained weight, then got more depressed. My mind and heart darkened from the lack of discovering inspiration and joy from those walks. Matt’s speech spoke to me. I didn’t have to change every single thing, correct every single wrong, make decisions beyond what my mind could contain, just a fun daily commitment to get outside and walk. Thank you for the inspiration and good luck in your 30-day journey of fun.


    I love that. Thanks. -M

    Are those friendship pins on your shoes? I haven’t seen one of those since Robin W. gave me one before her birthday party in second grade. I gave her a Glamor Gal for her birthday, fyi.


    I don’t remember what a Glamor Gal is. You mean the magazine? -M

  • Renee Says:

    I love that the inside of your shoes match your chair.

  • Anne Marie Says:

    I’m so sorry that things are rough for you right now. Hang in there. I think the 30 days of fun sounds like a step in the right direction! Take care.

  • Lena Says:

    This project (and the day on the river) sound awesome :) I definitely will try to do something fun for 30 days, too! Thanks for the inspiration!
    Take care!

  • Deirdre Says:

    OMG, I totally remember friendship pins. Now I want my fun thing to be finding those sneakers and making friendship pins for them.

  • The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful Says:

    One of our days of fun was trail-riding with a homicidal cow poke. We were never heard from again. http://shannoncolleary.blogspot.com/2011/07/i-might-be-murderer.html

  • gribbs Says:

    cute sneaks! where did you get them?

  • Maggeh Says:


    I love that so many people are joining in. Hooray!

    The shoes are HandM, the friendship pins are from Danielle Henderson. She’s good people.

    Your project (especially this day) makes me think of camp slugabed, which I created for myself and kids for one week this summer (5 days). Three days of camp slugabed are up on my blog, with the other two to come shortly, if you’d like to take a look (www.sweetslugabed.com)

    Love the friendship pins! Maybe we’ll make some friendship bracelets this week. I could sure use a dose of fun about now.
