Hello everyone! After three weeks of (mostly) silence, I’m back! It was a much-needed break and a good vacation, but now I have a lot to catch up on. To note, I went ahead and marked all posts in Feedly as read before this morning, so if there’s been anything cool I ought to hear about in the last few weeks, please let me know! Leave me links to your blogs or comment on how you’re doing. I’ve missed my blog-friends!
As for my extended vacation, I’m happy to say that I got to do many of the things I set out to do in San Antonio. I drove around my old neighborhood in town, visited my old library (where my librarian friends told me they’d be happy to renew my card even though I live in WI now, so I can keep checking out e-audiobooks!), ate at a few of my favorite restaurants, saw a lot more of my family than I thought I’d get to see (including some who just happened to be in town), hung out with a few friends, spent a lot of time in bookstores, and just generally relaxed.
Some surprising good notes: Despite lots of eating out, I also had a lot of really good home-cooked meals with a much wider variety of produce than we have available in northern WI at this time of year. I could just feel the way my body sucked in all that nutrition I’ve been lacking up north. I also got in tons of exercise, walking around neighborhoods and doing yoga for 15- or 30-minute stretches most days. Compared to the first half of February, I was much more active! Unfortunately, the one thing I didn’t get to do was the 5K that I went down to Texas for. Ironic, huh? I signed up, got my packet, bought some fantastic new shoes to use…and then the morning-of, it was storming, and between super-wet ground and a rocky trail, I opted not to risk further injury to my foot. Boo. At least I still supported the cause!
Anyway, I hope to be more present here soon, and I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone! Love y’all! 🙂
