Hey, I didn't post at all yesterday! Nothing to report. Lots of moving slowly and lifting heavy things. Shoveled snow for a looooooong time. Can't tell if my shovelgloving 1-2 times a week over the past few months has helped or not. I'm still standing, so I guess it did. Also swam, which may have been a bit of overkill, but I wanted to really badly. The pool is jammed these days! Luckily the college kids tend to come in packs and they share lanes, and the young kids also share lanes - in fact they seem to prefer it. Only we old farts like our own lanes. Yesterday a decent looking old fart looked me over in the sauna and started chatting. I got pretty turned off when he 1) mentioned his wife and 2) told me how he didn't get any snow on his part of the peninsula and he was all upset about that because it's so pretty. Now I think snow is pretty too, but when I've just spent 3+ hours shoveling and have gotten stuck twice I don't really want to hear some old retired geezer talk about how pretty it is. I always want to say, "If you like it so much, just come on over. The shovels are right inside the garage door. I'll give you an hour's head start, please have a nice spot for my car ready."
Weighed myself this morning, something I have not done for a long time. 135. Pretty happy with that. Can't believe I've maintained over the holidays, although I don't have the temptations many people do, I still have plenty. And I indulged myself shamelessly on several occasions. Also I drank too much, something that has to stop. In fact it will. I'm sworn off the juice for awhile. Think of the money I will save! I have a stock of nice herbal teas to help me through those cold dark evenings when it is tempting to pop a cork.
The carnivores are wild! They woke me up at 5 AM. The full moon was right above the skylights and the room was so light I probably could have read by it. There was a lot of romping and galloping and those weird vocalizations that cats make - howling and chirping. Slim Cat kept coming up to sit by my head and lay his paw on my face. Funny habit of his. I finally got up and fed them. That just wound them up even more! I think it is hard for them because with the snow there isn't much to look at right now.
