must hurry, on break

First of all, thank you so very much to all of you who have sent encouraging emails and comments regarding my latest endeavor.  You are too kind!!

I can already tell I’m going to enjoy this as I was drawn to the computer on my lunch break.  This may not be good for my waistline as I normally walk 2 miles on my lunch break.  Well, this SW FL girl is cold as it has dipped down below the 70s.  I needed soup and a blanket, not the wind whipping in my hair.  Yesterday I had to walk a mile before I was able to remove my arms from around myself.

Everyone asks me why I walk every day.  There are several reasons.  The first one is that I work from home on a laptop all day long, so I need fresh air and at, let’s just say forty-something, my joints and bones need to move or they tend to get stiff on me.  Secondly, its a good time to think, to contemplate my day, to pray and just enjoy the silence. Thirdly, it keeps my metabolism strong which is an absolute must at my age and helps keep the pounds off as well.  I used to run.  That was then, this is now.  Running hurts now.  It hurts my knees and my back and I’m going to just go ahead and believe an internet article I read which stated that walking is just as good for you anyway, without the joint damage.  I highly recommend it to save your sanity and keep your girlish figure.

As usual, when I settle down to do something I love, the phone rings, the husband needs something and things get all chaotic and noisy.  Since my lunch break is winding down and I must get those sweet potatoes in the oven so that I don’t end up peeling them while they are still hot like I did last year, I better run.

Peace and Blessings!

  1. Wish I could be there for the festivities! I will miss being at Dee Dee's house with everyone. Will there be a stone crab appetizer this year? I am betting dad will fall asleep on the couch by 4pm and Dee will be bringing plates to all the neighbors!
