With any luck …

I'll be posting a photo from an OUTDOOR walk later this afternoon.

The temperature is supposed to be above freezing – in fact, it may even hit 40° – by around 4 p.m. There is a strange bright orb shining brightly from above, and according to the weather gods it will continue to do so.

Bitter cold returns tomorrow evening and lasts most of the week.

I'm sooooo over winter.

Before I take a walk (and I can't even BEGIN to tell you how much I'm looking forward to doing so) I'll be shoveling. We got another inch of snow overnight, coating the porch and creating a palette for bird and dog footprints.

I was sick yesterday. I haven't tossed my cookies (or, in this case, a Larabar) in quite a long time. I'm guessing it's been years since my stomach has been quite so upset. So I lounged around in my jammies all day and took it very easy. And even though I didn't eat much all day, my weight has ticked up a couple of pounds. I blame it on lack of activity and am trying not to get all bent out of shape about it. Heh. I had a back-to-basics breakfast of bacon and eggs and have planned a pretty basic lunch (tuna salad) and dinner (more bacon and eggs, with the addition of home-fried sweet potatoes).

Other than Friday's "I filed" post, I feel like life has been one long dreary weather report lately, punctuated with "I ate this" and "I didn't take a walk today."

Perhaps it's a bit of cabin fever. Or winter blahs. Whatever it is, it's a serious affliction and I want it GONE!

You must really like bacon and eggs -- I like them but couldn't eat them twice in one day.

My husband won't eat them twice a day. I don't mind. It's easy to fix and I'm still feeling a little wiped out.
