I feel like a partially new woman. Yay!
On Friday I drove up with my friend to her cottage on Lake Ida, where others from our knitting group joined us for some very low-key and loving conversation, wonderful food – just some nice down time.
I didn’t do much – well, not much compared to what I would have done a few months ago – but it was MILES more than I’ve been doing. I carried in bags from the car (yay me!) and when everyone else went cross country skiing I went for a long walk across the lake.
I didn’t make it all the way, but Emma the dog and I went pretty far.
Here’s a video I shot of the frozen landscape. It’s so beautiful – and I was coat-less, just my hat and sweater and was very warm*
Now I’m home after so much relaxation and peace. And also more activity (mental and physical) than I’ve had in a long time. And EXCELLENT food! I’m almost afraid to hop on the wii…
I’m getting the feeling that rest is a very good idea for the balance of this active day, so this afternoon I’m surrounded by half finished projects from HoTN, finally trying to get some knitting and swatching done that I’ve put off for many weeks.
I’m firmly planted on my bottom, watching The Heiress and knitting. Who knew the frozen Minnesota waters could be so salubrious?
*yes, and pants and socks and shoes, too. Good grief.
