This is the rest of the yarn for my crochet project. And just before that, I got a nice email from UPS saying they are bringing the replacement remote for my bed tomorrow.
Nice way to start off the week.
I did all the laundry yesterday so nothing to clean today. Actually, I have nothing planned for today at all. I think I need to start getting out and at least walking around the block once a day.
As often happens, someone today remarked about my dedication to daily swimming or my perseverance to it. I get this a lot. I've got a new way of explaining it now. Some people - a lot of people - most people? - feel like getting outside into the fresh air is something they want and need to do and feel sad if they don't get to at least once a day.
Swimming is my fresh air. I don't care if I ever get outside. Outside, to me, is simply a necessity to getting places. I don't crave it, I don't enjoy it, I avoid it as much as I can. I don't like the wind, I don't like the sun's glare, I don't like it too hot or too cold. Outside is just one big crap shoot.
But, if I can't get to the pool every day, I'm not a happy camper. Plus it's the way I like to start my day. I kind of think that impressing people by doing it is like cheating. Doesn't stop my enjoyment of it, tho. I spent the first 65 years of my life avoiding anything that came close to athletic activity. That I now enjoy a physical activity so much that I want to do it the first thing every single day amazes me.
Never the less, I do find that cumulatively, walking for a bit - 15, 20 minutes a day - inside or out - has beneficial results. So I don't like it but I'll do it and I'll do it today.
But I will also sit and work with yarn and watch baseball.
