Weekly Challenge: Step Out of Your Box and Try Something NEW

Weekly Challenge: Step Out of Your Box and Try Something NEW

 

WEEKLY CHALLENGE: Try Something NEW!   As the summer comes to an end, I have been finding myself in a rut. I am doing the same things on the same days week after week after week and it feels like Groundhog Day. Nothing feels new or fresh? Am I alone? Or do some of you feel the same way too?

This week's challenge is about breaking out of the rut, monotony, doldrums or whatever you want to call it...Trying something new might lead to a fun new hobby, a healthy new habit or even new friends or adventures.

Your challenge: Try something NEW! Try a new workout class, a new recipe, a new activity, a new book, etc.

Triple digit days are great for solar cooking

SACRAMENTO, CA    Solar Cookers International (SCI) celebrated nearly 25 years of promoting solar cooking for the benefit of people at the Sierra 2 Center in the Curtis Park neighborhood of Sacramento.
