Recovery Day

Tis the day after Christmas and all through the Shire indoor lights are turned on and outdoor lights are turned off. It was a good holiday weekend. Nobody ended it in jail or the hospital, nobody got sick, everyone gave and was given fun and useful stuff and we ate well. Even the Beest behaved herself.

Today is gray and overcast. A soft light, welcome to tired eyes. If my back could handle it, I'd go back to bed. but it's still hurting from last night's long sleep. The starvation diet went out the window for the holidays, but it'll be back after Sunday.

Ah, the sun's broken through.

And here's some news:

I start taking vitamin D in October and take it right through until "sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee" weather is back. Hey...maybe instead of nuclear bombs they could bomb the world with vitamins.
Ahh, it's good to be back to normal isn't it?

Hadn't thought about it but it really is good to be back to normal. No pressure today, for the first time in weeks. Tomorrow will begin the prep for Sunday's party, but today I can sit here and yawn as long as I want to. Heaven.

All diets went out the window this week. I feel guilty, but I know that when the holiday is over and the refrigerator somewhat empty of the rich and wonderful food, I will return to my WW diet. It sure was fun to be on a break.
