Flip Flops

“When the same problem comes up again and again, I remind myself that it is my thinking that is flawed, not my life.”

Flip flop season is about over.  It was 66 degrees this morning when I went for a flying lesson.  It’s amazing how much more responsive the plane is when it’s cool.  I have had all my lessons in really hot weather and it’s like the plane woke up.  That little Cessna 172 got downright zippy!  It was windy and bumpy, but waaaaay fun!!!  Too windy to solo, but I’m oh so close.  Maybe next week.  🙂

    Flip flops are great! Love the texture and the colors. Cooled down, here, just like you and it has done wonders for my spirit! I actually have some energy. What I liked even more were the drenchers as the front moved through. We needed that! Happy soloing, Beth!

    Love your Americana flip flops! It’s still HOT here and now there’s a hurricane. No flip flop weather for that! I’m not a big flip flop fan. Never could walk in them comfortable, but I do like these and would wear them on the 4th of July!

    I would kill for 66 degree weather!

      Thanks, Carol. It’s your hurricane that brought us our cool weather, so the weatherman says. 🙂 It’ll be hot again by Monday. I’m glad you’re feeling better!
