Today's Ten on Tuesday topic is: 10 Favorite Summer Beverages.
Well, I'm a pretty boring person. I mainly drink water. I love Dr. Pepper, so I "allow" myself to have one (or two) Dr. Peppers a day. When it's really hot out and/or I'm really hot, Dr. Pepper just doesn't do it, so I stick to water (with lots of ice). I used to drink a lot more sweet drinks (and not much plain water), but over the past few years, I've been making myself drink more water & now I do it without thinking about it. When it's really hot out, I'll also drink coconut water (to help to replenish electrolytes).
Over the weekend, I decided to organize a bus trip to Rhinebeck in October. I requested quotes from several local tour bus companies and one of them got back to me first thing Monday morning. My contact person, Tim, sent me the quote yesterday and I accepted it today. Within minutes of our phone conversation this morning, he sent me a confirmation email of my acceptance, along with the supporting documents. The main reason I accepted this company's offer (without seeing any quotes from the other companies) is because of Tim's quick response time. I appreciate good customer service. He also answered all of my questions (this is my first time organizing a bus trip).
I am SO excited about this trip!!! I'm a little nervous, because I need to find 38 other people who want to take this trip, but I'm going with the "if you build it, they will come" philosophy. Go big or go home, right??
Having said that, if you're in the Lancaster, PA area, and are interested in the trip, you'll find the details on the "Rhinebeck Bus Trip - 2014" page on this blog (the cost is cheaper the earlier you register for the trip). Oh! That's the other new thing I did! I added a page to my blog AND I added a "buy now" Paypal button. I feel so technically savvy.
A bus trip - with my people! Going to the Mecca for my people, the NY State Sheep & Wool Festival! If I read the info right, each of us can have 50lb of "luggage". That, my friends, is a lot of yarn/fiber per person!
So....what are you looking forward to and/or what are your favorite summer beverages?
