Day 148: Declare Today Ice Cream Sunday

Today's Positivity activity: Declare today Ice Cream Sunday
Do this instead of:  1 hr of random web surfing

Several years ago, we instituted Ice Cream Sundays at our house. Every Sunday we would have a mini ice cream social together. It was a time to stop for a fun "together" moment in an otherwise hectic household. Today I'm declaring that we bring that tradition back! By the way, Ice Cream Sunday can work even when watching your waistline or for those avoiding dairy. We've made our own using pureed fruit and coconut milk, gone out for lowfat frozen yogurt, opted for sugar free or lactose free ice creams, etc.  And once in a great while, we'd set up an old fashioned sundae bar at home and go for it. (Healthier alternatives for this include offering fresh fruit, sunflower seeds, compote, and homemade/organic toppings.)

Woo hoo! Today we opted for frozen yogurt, and it was a nice treat on a hot day.
