Merry Hipmas and a Hippy New Year!

I do believe the snow is here to stay! In the last week Mother Nature has more than made up for the lack of snow. I am forever grateful for the extended nice weather so I could walk outside as long as I did. The last few days have got me using the treadmill at the gym. I do find the treadmill extremely boring but I can walk pretty darn fast (for me) on that thing. 

While our sidewalk clearing has been pretty darn fast, there's now a layer of icey snow and mushy snow. Your foot never seems to find traction. Oh well, I will keep on moving whether it is inside or outside. 

Today's walk was cold but my fastest kilometre outdoors in ages! 

We had a low key, quiet Christms here in the Little Kitchen. Christmas Eve was board games and movies. It was quite fun.  Holiday Fluxx was awesome! Christmas Day, the 3 of us ventured out to the movie theatre to see my long lost love, Star Wars.  We awakened the force! I am a Star Wars geek and have been forever. This was awesome. I am a traditionalist with my Star Wars and do not speak of the 3 movies that shall not be named. Ever. Except there.  That was it. It was an awesome movie that has returned to the proper roots of The Star Wars story telling genre.  Loved it. 

Only true Star Wars fans have this measuring cup set waiting under the tree for them!

In the mean time, stay warm and keep moving!

Up Next

This morning I'm with my dad at a hospital. No need to panic, he's having his pre admission clinic because he is having his hip replacement next week!  We like to stick together with our joint replacements!  Lucky for us (him) in done with all sorts of things like the walker, the crutches, the grab bars, the seat raisers...he can have it all!!! 

I haven't been up this early in ages!!  I just might fall asleep at the athletic therapist this afternoon.... Who am I kidding, he would NEVER let that happen! 

Stay warm and keep moving!

Me thinks I overdid it yesterday.  I was in bed before 10pm and am finally getting up at 11:15.  They warned me there would be days I just slept and rested. Wow! 
I'm going to take my time getting ready for my walk too. The middles school by my house just let the kids out for lunch.... I shall have some breakfast first. 

Good thing I have nothing else planned for today!

Stay warm and keep moving (or sleeping).
