It was 85 degrees farenheit today! I decided to come out of hibernation. Four weeks ago we were digging out from under a foot of snow and now it's BBQ time! No complaints though. This roller coaster weather fits in nicely with this roller coaster economy. I blame Al Gore for all of it. The fat cat knows how to groom his bottom line. Are you afraid of the dark?
I have moved on to Level 4 in Tai Chi. Things have really sped up and I'm feeling quite dangerous. I've become quite brave too, going places where this lone woman would never have gone alone before. This might have something to do with being a widow and realizing that I will probably spend the rest of my life alone and not wanting to spend that life hiding in a cave, coupled with the fact that I am becoming a lean, mean fighting machine disguised as a little old lady. Have you noticed their are lots of 'Don't mess with us gray haired grandmas' in the news lately? They are chastising burglers and pointing shotguns at trespassers. A phenomenon first brought about by Granny Clampett of the Beverly Hillbillies.
I did the MS Walk last weekend. It started out really nice and half way through the course the skies opened up. It poured and poured. I kept on walking and arrived back at the base looking more like a mudrat than a mouse but it was worth it. I know that I must do some serious walking. I am so out of shape. It's been a whole year since I last attempted such a walk and the adage 'use it or lose it' is proving it's worth.
Hopefully I'll stay out of the cave until next winter.
