I had a much better day today. It’s wild to me how one day can be so low I think I’ll never see light again and the next can be very good, almost to the point of feeling normal and forgetting. Twenty four hours can really change things.
I “Walked Away The Pounds” this morning. That’s an exercise video for jumbo sized people who can’t do too much. I really do feel so much better mentally if I move more. I’m issuing myself a four day challenge to do an exercise vid every day. I’m going to try to
sucker encourage Belinda to be in the challenge too.
I went to the Tile Place and gave Tile Lady a down payment for the kitchen stuff. Whew. What a load off my mind. Like so many things these days, it doesn’t really matter to me that the couch has become a storage place for dry goods or that even if I did want to make brownies, I probably wouldn’t want to dig the mixing bowls out from under the bed where lots of kitchen stuff is being stored for the duration but it will be nice when the actual kitchen is functioning again. Unfortunately, that won’t be for at least four more weeks.
Then I took myself to see Black Swan. What a beautiful clusterf*&^ of a movie! I really identified with Natalie Portman’s character because I’m a dancer too. NOT a thin starving ballerina striving for perfection. However, I do dance on the edge of sanity just like her character did. She did a fancy ballerina leap over to crazytown. I hope I never have the need to do that. I’d probably throw out my back. I loved looking for all the foreshadows, background references to birds and all the control and mind games. I can see why there is Oscar buzz.
I was staring out the window this morning, as I’m wont to do so often these days, and I couldn’t help but notice the way the rising sun shone on the ice covered tree making it look as though it was made of glass.
Inspired by my camera wielding friends here and there , I had to snap a pic to share with you. I wish I was a better photographer with a better camera so you could see it like I did. It probably didn’t help that I was too lazy to actually go outside and take the picture but took it from the window.
And here is a bonus shot of Clara B. Dog. She has a barely noticeable limp now, however, she thinks she’s completely recovered and runs about in an untroubled and happy-go-lucky way.
Oh to be an untroubled and happy-go-lucky canine…..
