So, I’m calling what I’m doing today “vegging.” In actual fact, I think I am in healing mode.
I have spent most of the day on the couch. And pay attention to how decadent this has been. I started off there right after breakfast and after Simon had left for work. I read, finishing my book at about 11. And that’s when I finally got off my butt and took Abby for a walk.
After lunch I was back on the couch for a nap, after which I stayed there to watch a movie I downloaded. Then, I heaved myself into an upright position again to take Abby for another walk. Turns out I’m the one who did the walking. Abby was willing to do the back 4 but that was all. While I continued to do the meadow loop, she sat in front of the house, waiting for me to come back, open the door and allow her to continue baking in front of the fire.
And yes, as I write this, I am fully flopped on the couch.
Simon would be so proud of me. He has been trying to turn me into a blob for years.
My excuse is that I am getting myself in fully healthy shape to tackle White Queen on Friday.
And that’s the story I’m sticking to.
