That's something I'll be thinking more about over the next while, and I'm going to write more here about it soon -- and ask your thoughts on the matter as well -- but right now I'm needing some recovery time from a series of longer, busier days than my waning cold was willing to tolerate. It might just be the hours of talking with friends (three hours with another friend over breakfast the next day, an hour over afternoon coffee, and then another four hours over dinner with friends!), but the sore throat is back.
And next week promises to be a busy one as well: coffee with a friend from way back whom I haven't seen in several years; a possible breakfast with a former neighbour, in the city for a conference; a visit with a new physio, an important ally in my determination to regain fitness; and a French lesson. Plus that "determination to regain fitness" means prioritising a daily walk, at the very least, and also, I hope, fitting in at least one yoga class...
As well, of course, my week's To-Do list includes blogging. I'm going to post an update on our Nesting Progress now that we've sorted a few key pieces and have one room looking much closer to what we'd hoped for. I might include some thoughts about adapting to condo living. We'll see. . . .
But gently, and slowly, and paying attention to the "sore-throat meter."
Finally, although my sore-throat warning kept me home yesterday, I must say, "Wasn't that Marvellous?!" To see those numbers of women and their allies marching in solidarity was so uplifting, so hope-inspiring. Check out my Instagram account to see my own favourite marchers, but there are so many splendid images from the day. Perhaps you have a favourite yourself. I know some of you were at some of those marches -- Brava!
Have to go now -- the 4-year-old granddaughter wants to come over to tell Nana and Granddad all about yesterday's marching. But I'll be back later to read any comments you have time to leave. What are you up to this Sunday? What plans for the week ahead? What will you be recovering from or looking forward to? How are you Recharging?
