Hi all, sorry for my silence. All is well, just busy and finding it difficult to be productive evenings while being BLASTED every evening by a poorly located Bluesfest stage. Also spending a lot of time calling in noise complaints, chatting with by-law enforcement officers, b****ing to fellow sufferers... The nightmare ends for me after tomorrow night as I'll be away at a beautiful resort - for work, no less! My neighbours will be in **** all weekend.
I didn't pick a tip for the week, but I've continued with the running program, slowly but surely. So far no foot problems, and fingers remain firmly crossed. Toes too.
I had a lovely day - delivered an old tv to a friend's cottage. It's a 2 hour drive each way, but I had a lovely visit, spent a good two hours swimming (first time this year), and even managed to arrive at her place just when an old friend had dropped by. Also lovely: he's about 70, in incredible shape, madly in love, and about to remarry after 35 years playing the field! AND he helped lug the tv indoors, so he was happy AND useful.
I had almost forgotten what a water baby I am. Swimming in a nice clean cold Canadian lake is amazingly delicious and healing. The water is so totally restorative, I'll have to get out more often. We're incredibly lucky here: there are public beaches on beautiful small lakes within a 20-min drive of the city. I just have to remember to get out there.
My apologies for no individual messages...
Bye for now
