Sunny, beautiful, cold - temps minus 28
Balmy compared to yesterday. Went out to do the composing this morning in PJs and gloves - almost froze to death in the 2 minutes it took. Even the dogs don't want to go out.
Speaking of dogs, Maggie is doing magnificently. Almost totally adjusted to life with three legs. She's playing with her sister Trudy again and even running after the ball. I think she's feeling better than she has in 6 months or more. No pain. I have such respect for people who live with chronic pain - it must be exhausting.
Heard an unfamiliar sound downstairs just now...it's Michael on the new elliptical trainer. We're taking it slow. 5 minutes at a time. Don't want to over do it then either hurt ourselves or get discouraged. Important to set the bar at a reasonable height, at first. I do the same when I'm writing. The goal is 1,000 words a day, but I start slow. 250, then 500, then creep up to 1,000 so that I enjoy the process.
Have another day to look after details before we head out next week for 5 week - starting in Arizona then off to Quebec City. Have added 2 television interviews to the events in Arizona.
Take care, hope you're well.
