I was a little worried this week because our daughter gave us a wine and chocolate tasting for Anne’s birthday. No worries as it turned out – it was fabulous, but there wasn’t all that much chocolate or wine involved. It fit well with my new lifestyle – a taste is enough. Savoring the flavors of food and drink – and life itself – the warm sun, the colors of the sky, the pleasures of friendship and good company are all so wonderful in themselves. There is no need to overdo any of it.
I did my favorite walk this week for the first time since my knee surgery. Roughly 7000 steps downhill to the local marina and back uphill home. It felt good, and the knee is still doing well.
My weight seems to have stabilized and I have been hovering in the same 1-2 pound range every day for the last 2-3 weeks. This may be where I end up which is just fine. I am having fun and enjoying life. I feel healthy and strong. I am trying not to let the fact that a criminal president will stay in office bring me too far down.
This song (Lead with Love) helps me keep my courage up.
