(Uno) 1. New bedroom furniture!!! Hours spent assembling and arranging, photos this weekend. (All the while singing “Shake it off!” by Florence and the Machine.)
(Due) 2. Finding a hill routine for running in my neighborhood. It is just about perfect, it is about a half mile from the house (warm-up distance), with hill repeats about one-third mile long (great for running repeat with a rest period on the way down).
(Tre) 3. Oh yea – no work for Jilly today!
(Quattro) 4. Connecting with my Uncle Michael on his birfday – yep, 8:30am in Sicilia is only 11:30pm in Seattle (the night before today).
Sempre Dicembre continues and my mood continues to soar, my waistline is hanging with me (despite a few extra desserts and glasses of wine each week), and most importantly, my energy level is staying high! I tend to celebrate the winter solstice so emphatically because I need the affirmation that More Sun Is Ahead! This time of year often finds me in the doldrums; while I feel them nipping at my heels this year, the Sempre Dicembre activity is creating a protective bubble around me – colds, flues and doldrums are not allowed! How do you keep the doldrums at bay?
