Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Good Morning My Fun Fri-Yay Friends!

If you’re feeling fun or not so much this morning, I’ll hope to give you a lift somewhere somehow durning this post. Let me just say to start, if I could get up on this chair and reach both of my legs to the side with a smile all the while of feeling like I might rip in 2, you’re doing ok! I used to do the splits no problem and now.. oh NVM it’s Friday and we’re gearing for the weekend and the question remains: To be a sloth or get out in nature? I’ll be doing a little of both. What about you?

Santa Monica, California

Stretch but not too far
Get out of your comfort zone
Gems found exploring

On to San Bernadino to visit my nephew and his roommate:

Hearts remembering
Special times with family
memories sublime

Next Stop: Palm Desert, California

This is a must do when we visit amongst other hikes but it is straight up and down and gets the job done. As you can imagine the views at the top are awesome!

Rocks Hold Emotions
Release it to the mountains
tears tucked behind pride

The Palm Desert Bump-n-Grind Trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in the Coachella Valley. Locals may also refer to the trail as the Patton Trail, Desert Drive Trail, Dog Poop Trail, and Desert Mirage Trail. The trail starts out narrow at the trailhead and widens as you go along. It is popular among those looking to get a workout and has an elevation gain of about 1,000 feet as it climbs to an overlook that offers nice views of Palm Desert. A number of endangered wildlife species inhabit the area and it may be possible to view them during your hike, especially bighorn sheep.

On top of the world
People look like ants below
Strength for one and all

Final Stop: Desert Hot Springs:

To be honest the only reason we go to Desert Hot Springs at the end of the trip is to decompress which is the best but we don’t leave the place we’re staying except maybe to go to Joshua Tree (not to be missed if you visit with their awesome hiking).

HEAVEN!!!!!


Natural Sauna
Release Toxins Through Organs
Hydrate Rest Refresh

So my rule of thumb when saying somewhere is they must have a bathtub since I miss mine so much. When I finally got one I stayed in it for 4 hours and meditated, wrote etc. I know crazy but crazy good to me. Check out this cool Igloo and Himalayan Sea Salt room which was so awesome.

Living like a prune
Decompressing happily
Aging at it’s best

And that sums it up. Now I’m just living in memories of that amazing experience. Thanks truly for visiting and have a wonderful Fri-Yay and weekend doing whatever floats your boat.

Blessings of Love to you and all those you love!

Cindy, stretching in the big chair reminds me of Edith Ann, Lily Tomlin’s little girl character in the big chair. And, that’s the whole truth, as she would say. Thanks for taking us on your journey, prunes toes and all. Keith

Of course, you, Nancy and I are showing our age by knowing immediately who Edith Ann is. Your prune toes remind me of how the kids would react in horror when their fingers and toes did that after swimming. Dad, Mom! Keith

A lovely post Cindy. Looks like a great hike up the mountain but the name “Dog Poop Trail” might make me hesitate. πŸ™‚ And I laughed when I saw your “prune” feet. If anyone needed more proof about how you love soaking, that is it! Grin. Have a great weekend. –Curt

Wow, aren’t you a great boulevard, darling! I like all the places you visited. And your toes after walking on salt cracked my ribs, I wouldn’t pass it with a πŸ˜‚. Personally, I love mountain views, feels just like sitting on top of the world and watching the beautiful little creations of God. Makes me imagine of how God sees us here on earth, like little dots on a large drawing? πŸ˜… ❀ Thanks for walking us these place, and have an amazing weekend too, my friend. πŸ’–πŸ’–

It’s always great catching up with you on Fri-Yay Fun Days; that pic of you in the chair reminds me of Lily Tomlin when she did her little girl skit on Laugh In. Remember that silly show? Well I’m definitely a sloth at the moment but it’s only 8:30 AM here and it’s very dreary looking outside. We’ll see what the day brings. Be well and have fun, my friend!
