Getting back to normal
Monday, April 22, 2013
After Friday's chaos, we turned off the tv and got back to normal. Spent Saturday moving 5 yards (about 6 tons) of soil from the driveway where the landscaping company dropped it off to the backyard for our new raised vegetable beds.
Then went out to a concert and dinner in Watertown. It still seemed quiet and subdued the day after. I had salad for dinner.
Sunday we went hiking, an 8-mile hike at Mt Wachussett. It was gorgeous and clear, cool and no bugs. Terrific hiking weather. It felt good to work out the kinks from all the garden work on Saturday. I was very conscious of my legs - both glad I was back to normal after last year's car accident and grateful to have both my legs and not be wondering if I'd ever walk again like the survivors of the marathon blasts.
And of course, after a very active weekend making good food choices? The scale? Up 2 pounds from Friday. Welcome to Monday.
