|Reflection in still water at Lake Padden|
I had a great time with my sister and nephew, along with their two dogs. I really miss them, if I give myself a chance to go there in my mind. But the beauty of Lake Padden this morning, walking in mild temperatures without the normal rain, was healing to my heart and soul. It's lovely to have traveled there, and it's lovely to come home.
And I didn't get sick! Usually, when I travel I pick up a bug because of the stress of travel. This time, I can safely say, "so far, so good." I have a massage scheduled for tomorrow, and I'll happily enjoy it. After the nine-mile hike on Thursday, my right hip has been bothering me. Each day, however, it has felt a little bit better, and it wasn't an issue at all today. All is well.
Other than the couple pounds I brought back from Florida, I'm doing just fine. If I haven't lost them by the first of February, I'll think about restricting my diet. Otherwise, the ice cream habit I acquired might continue for a bit longer.
