Merry Christmas!

It feels like a down-sized Christmas this year. I think that's because some of us are heading to PA after Christmas for a memorial service. The tree wasn't up until last Sunday and just lights, no ornaments. No lights on the house (or on any others in the neighborhood) Add to that a couple of trips out of town for me and the month passed pretty quickly. I usually enjoy shopping but this year, I didn't get to do much. Too little exercise and long days when I'm in Barrow really has me feeling run down. My WIN goal is just walking three times per week and eat more vegetables. No problem with either of those goals but I feel depressed since I've gained weight since last April. Very slowly but 10 lbs is significant and it will be hard to get rid of.

I can't wait until spring gets here. Do some skiing, get the bike ready, plan some camping trips, weekend and evening walks. Maybe I'm just getting old but it feels too cold to do much of anything outdoors. Very nice walk to church this evening. Not too cold, light snowfall, and just enough light bouncing from the clouds to see the road. Too slippery to jog (yeah, I tried believe it or not) but very quiet and peacefull. Perfect for Christmas Eve.
