Gentle and Quiet

Way back between the trees on the path, if you squint and look very closely, you can see Sean and our Princess on their very first Daddy-Daughter run this last weekend.  They made it 2.4 miles, and both had a fabulous time.
  • I've started exercising again.  I'm trying to follow my doctor's advice, which is to start out as gently as possible - with walking and some yoga.  Weight lifting and more strenuous stuff is off the table for a while because my body is still adjusting to my allergy diet. 
  • It's hard enough to get enough calories when you are eating nothing but rabbit food...for now I don't need to push.
  • My doctor has told me that I need patience.  I'm not particularly good at that.
  • This week is an interesting week for me.  My extra kids are with their grandmother all week because of parent-teacher conferences, and my own kids are only in school for three days.
  • I spent ALL of yesterday at Starbucks, happily camped out in my favorite chair with my knitting.
  • Today I'm spending all day at home - and hopefully I'll get some things done this afternoon.
  • Tomorrow morning I'm getting my hair cut...and then, who knows?
  • I think I needed the wee break.  There has been a lot of stress for the last month or so.
  • Oddly enough, I've not had much to say for the last few days.  My restful time appears to also be a quiet time.
  • I received a present in the mail a few days ago, which I absolutely adore.  Once I get an official thank you in the mail, I will share it with you all. 
  • I still don't have much to say....time to go knit.

Sounds like a good week! Enjoy!

And I'm envious of a day at Starbuck's. Maybe during spring break I could do that too.

I got a little present too. Very neat. I suspect it might be similar, maybe even from the same source.

I hope you're feeling better this week. A full day at Starbucks sounds like a good start. How is the exercising going? What do you think of your haircut?
