Well, when I write it like that, I see why I've been having a tough time finding my rhythm here. On top of that, the disruption to my regular exercise routine led to some injuries that could no longer be ignored. . . . honestly, abandoning my running schedule on top of so many other changes recently felt like one too many aspects of my identity lost. . .
|Oooh, this one's from a few weeks ago, taken in the hotel room in between lunches and dinners with good friends. Such a great week, when the weather warmed up enough that I could wear sneakers and bare feet!|
But I'm working with a physiotherapist now to get myself back into full running form. I'll say a bit more about that and about my health-self-care in general in another post, but for now, I thought I'd share a few photos of me getting out and about recently, working toward building some new routines in a new urban lifestyle.
All of which is to show that I have been getting out, trying to find a rhythm that will work for me in our new digs. Over the next week, this rhythm will have to include grabbing an umbrella everytime I go out the door -- we have a Rainfall Warning for the next two days, with accompanying cautions about heavy winds, and there's no hint of sunshine in the forecast for at least the next five days. So waterproofed feet and a big umbrella as I head out today to meet a Blogging Friend for lunch. We live in the same city, have corresponded through our blogs for several years, share several interests, yet have never met. Should be fun.
Now tell me the truth: are you getting weary of the sombre outfits? I worry a bit that one of these days I'll arrive home with a bag of yellow and pink and turquoise garments, perhaps even an orange palazzo pant or mauve dress, having been unable to resist the vivacious colours despite knowing I'm unlikely to wear them (although I did expand my Winter Wear palette recently with this coat . . . . Oh, spring, come quickly. . . Please!
