It’s almost 11:00 in the morning and poor Jack is passed out in bed, not moving. His new best friend Harry, my sister’s puppy, wore him out completely. My little Jack has maybe twenty minutes of running in him a day and he likes it that way. He isn’t used to two full days of intense cardio like he had with Harry. Harry can be a personal trainer for the lazy couch potato dogs such as Jack, poor lamb.
I woke up today completely wiped. I couldn’t tell you why, just that upon opening my eyes I felt so weary. The feeling of utter weariness didn’t negate my enjoyment of my breakfast. Breakfast is truly my favorite meal of the day. I had my rye toast with peach preserves today; I don’t know which preserves is my favorite; fig, peach or wild blueberry. It doesn’t really matter, I just rotate them so everyone gets a turn.
I mustered up enough energy to go run some errands downtown in Westfield; I had thought to go to the Mall in Holyoke but feeling the way I do, I thought it best to postpone returning the items at the mall some other day when I felt better. Digging the car out from the snow on top was a chore however it did give me a good deal of satisfaction feeling my biceps and core muscles at work. Any physical effort no matter how small is always good for your heart and circulation. That is what I tell myself whenever I am doing something that I would rather not be doing; it’s good for me. Believe it or not, it helps.
Right now I am resting and watching Law and Order U.K. I have been meaning to watch it for such a long time but since it’s not often advertised or promoted on other channels I miss it. My hubby recorded a marathon of episodes so I am taking advantage of my bone weariness to watch all of these episodes. The British version is just as sharp as the American one and the chemistry between the characters along with the sometime rivalry between the prosecutors and the police makes for excellent t.v. Jack has been watching it with me and he agrees. He only watches quality t.v.
I know that I’ll feel better tomorrow because I have weight class to teach. I also spent some time wrapping a few caramels into cute little packages for all the ladies in our class. A belated holiday present if you will, I was too overwhelmed before the holidays to make them anything before Christmas, so I am making up for it post holiday season. A sweet way to start the new year.
