Right now we have a brief lull in activities, so I’m trying to lay low and take it easy. Spring is always a busy time, with April being the busiest month of the year, so I know it’s not going to last long. And this year we have a grandbaby coming in April as well. In a few weeks, it will be time to shift into overdrive!
I already have an event planned for every weekend in April. They keep stacking up, so there are some Saturdays that I have three places I need to be. Ain’t gonna happen!
Last week I ran four miles for the first time since I sprained my ankle. It was slower than all get out, but that’s ok. My doctor says it should be healed and he thinks the pain I’m feeling is just from it being stiff and not as elastic as it used to be, so I’m trying to move more and keep it loosened up.
I am definitely loving daylight savings time. It is so nice to have more daylight in the evening and to be able to get outside. It certainly is taking some adjustment, though. Everytime I look at my watch, it’s an hour or two later than I think. It seems like it’s making the time fly away.
I unintentionally took a break from juicing for several months. I just got out of the habit of making it. I was starting to feel the effects of not having juice in my diet, so I have gotten back to making juice again. I was expecting it not to taste good to me after not having it for so long. Actually, it was delicious, and I felt like I had been missing something special. Lesson learned.
It seems like it has been a longer, harder winter than what we’ve had in the past. It got cold earlier in the fall than what we’re used to. I remember going to the sports store looking for winter running accessories in October and the sales clerk telling me that it had gotten cold earlier than usual so they weren’t going to have winter items in for a few weeks yet. We didn’t have a lot of snow this year, but we had a lot of small snow falls or even sleet and ice. Our weather wasn’t necessarily harsh or severe, it just made it more difficult to get out. As you know, once you start slacking off, it’s easy to continue.
Now that we are in daylight savings time and it’s a bit warmer, I feel like spring is just around the corner. Time to break free!
