It rained all day so I wasn't enthusiastic about going outdoors. I waited until 7:45 pm before venturing out. I walked around our country block with my son and my dog. But after the walk, I took a shovel to the ice at the bottom of the driveway. That was the last remnant of what was a white Christmas. Only ten minutes of scrapping and shoveling and I had built up a good sweat!
I've decided to fast icecream for at least a month. I find that I crave it every day after dinner and so instead of indulging in the creamy delight, I plan to pray for God's direction for my writing life.
I slept in today 'cause I stayed up so late for New Year's last night. I took it easy, watching Seinfeld reruns and taking down the Christmas tree and decorations.
