It’s Friday again already, so that means it’s time for . . .
I just LOVE what Kailani is doing over at An Island Life with “Aloha Friday.”
In Hawaii, she says, “Aloha Friday is the day when we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.”
I can’t really say that Friday is any less frantic than any other day of the week here, but I like the idea. Wouldn’t you love to be on “island time?”
I’m participating in Kailani’s Aloha Friday and I thought I’d bring a bit of the islands to Everydaywoman. I’ll be posting a simple question to stir up a little conversation before the weekend. If you’d like to participate, please respond to the question in a comment, and feel free to post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
My “Aloha Friday” question this week is:
DO YOU USE SUNSCREEN?
I know that this seems like a simple, innocuous question, but coming from a sun-lover, ok, pretty much a sun-worshiper, I’ve recently changed my answer to this one!
I must admit when my kids were growing up, I’d slather the sunscreen on them and then let myself bake poolside while they played (and I weeded the flower gardens, vacuumed the pool, etc.) to golden perfection. It always made me feel healthier, happier, browner. Then, just recently, in the harsh paleness of winter I was forced to undergo some pretty ugly skin treatments for pre-cancer (which involved using a chemotherapy cream to BURN the skin off my forehead, creating UGLY scabs and lesions……ugh!) According to my doc, I now have a new lease on life and MUST use sunscreen, hats, covering, etc., etc. I know I’ve been in denial for a long time, but as hard as I know it’ll be, I’ll cover up this summer . . . and YES, use sunscreen. (I know those wrinkles came from overexposure, too, and fortunately there are now some pretty decent bronzers so I won’t have to feel sickly pale.)
