I got my garden in this weekend. When all you've got is a window box, it takes all of about 15 minutes! I pulled out my froze-back pansies and added some basil and dill to the surviving rosemary. I also added a few purple petunias for color, but they will go as soon as some more herbs become available. One of the added benefits of The Closet is that my "kitchen garden" is readily accessible and I will throw some fresh herbs into just about anything. The picture is not mine, of course. I always forget to take pictures.
While the weather was warm (perhaps too warm) it was very, very windy this weekend, plus the big foot races were swirling around the area that I live, so I did not get out on Cha-Cha on Saturday. I do need to get an old-fashioned foot pump, as I'd just not facile with my frame pump. Clementine needs a bit of a pump up. And I think I can start sneaking some rides in after work.
Today marks the end of February and the end of my love letters to me experiment. I think I gained some things from it. Mostly as a centering contemplative exercise and a way of setting a positive state of mind. As the old saying goes, "we are just as happy as we make up our minds to be". The older I get, the more work I do, the truer I believe that sentiment to be.
And speaking of work, it's time to hop back on the bus, I think. I just paid a ridiculous amount of money for a tank of gas. I have the bus option and it's just silly of me not to use it. I'll have to adjust my morning routine a skosh, as if I was to try to catch the bus, I should be scrambling out the door right now instead of sitting in my recliner in my bathrobe and drinking coffee. Taking the bus, getting on the ground is good for me and I need to do more of it. There is a goal in the making for March!
I'm wavering between TNT class and elliptical time at lunch today. I'll chose something. Then after work it's off to my favorite independent hardware store to buy a foot pump. I'm having dinner with Barbie on Tuesday (she cancelled last night, work obligations) and then on Friday, another GNO - one of those group art class things. Should be fun.
Food has been spot on. I've dropped the travel bloat and am feeling much more normal. As usual, it takes about three days.
I'm putting together a symposium for a regional group that will take place in April and that is keeping me hopping. Planning the program, corralling speakers, getting facilities and food. I shall be the hostess with the mostess. Me and my crazy ideas. This one is all self-inflicted.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Plan(t) something.
