After last week’s post, I headed out to a motorcycle show with my dad. As we walked in and moved through the crowd while taking in the live music, I kept thinking, “This sounds like Prince.” Then, it became clear, a Prince cover band was definitely in the house — and the singer must have watched Purple Rain a few hundred times because he knew every note to every song, not to mention every signature dance move. It was mesmerizing and I watched the gathered bikers in their black leather jackets and boots dancing right along, just as excited as I was.

I’m glad I had that dose of entertainment because the rest of the week has been rainy, cool and full of too much work. It’s time for an adventure! When I’m really into the work I’m doing, I forget to stop, stretch and take care of myself. So…I’m starting that now. Time for a mini Friday break!

In other news, I hope you have better weekend plans than I do. My Saturday involves two back-to-back tax appointments in the morning. Eek! I’ll be wearing my metallic gold sneakers for good luck and hoping for the best. 😉

Have a great weekend, friends!
