Ok…I admit it…I am tired. The holidays were fabulous. We had a wonderful time with family and friends. We ate too much. I blew my healthy eating and did not exercise. I gained an undetermined number of pounds. We cooked, baked, ate, and cooked some more. We wrapped and unwrapped packages. Attended multiple celebrations. I even threw in a few naps and did not manage to get up until well after sunrise most days.
It has been cold in Southern California. They say this will be the coldest Rose Parade in 100 years. We won’t be going and I may not even see in on TV. I was thinking of going to the gym New Years Day-you know-first day of the new year and all that.
Probably won’t happen.
The sun is out today so decided to see what was going on outside. We have been tucked into a cozy warm house with the heater on and other than mandatory outings, I have not ventured outside much since Christmas.
The lemons are still growing.
The violets are surviving the cold.
The cactus doesn’t seem to have any problems with motivation.
The cat grass looks lush.
(The kitties will be happy.)
The succulents are thriving.
A few flowers are hanging in there.
As for me, I will eat my black-eyed peas for good luck on New Years Day.
I will soon pull myself off of the couch and venture out.
The gym and I will become reconnected and those extra pounds will disappear.
(Maybe I can even get rid of a couple of extra ones too.)
The candy is gone,
and the cookies have been eaten or ready to be tossed
It is time. 2014 was a fantastic year.
I can’t wait to see what awaits me this next year.
