The weather is very dreary here today, liquid air, 48 °, heavy gray sky.
With all of the holiday eating, I wanted to get in a walk, but ugh! So today I became a mall walker! Southcenter is just a few miles from my house, so I was there at 8:30, thinking it would just be me and other mall walkers. But no! Stores were already open, and more opened at 9:00, so I had lots of company. I got in my 3.5 miles and managed to get out of there without giving in to the temptations of all the goodies to be had there.
Back home I prepared an actual breakfast for Tom and me, read the paper, and did a few exercises before settling down at my desk top computer to catch up - again- with my blogger buddies.
I have read some wonderful, heartwarming posts this morning. What an amazing group of friends I have out there, real people experiencing real emotions: heartache, pain, joy and love.
Stay happy and healthy, my friends.
And now it's time to go watch some football! Seahawks!
