After a week of forced inactivity due to nonstop rain, I was finally able to start walking again this morning. I walked for about 45 minutes and trimmed shrubs (manually) for about 20 minutes, for at least an hour of exercise. Yay!
The sun is coming up about 6:30 am; I was able to get out of the house about 6:40, and get back inside in time to get ready, early enough that I had time to go to the post office on the way to work. We still have almost a month to go until the summer solstice (June 21), and the sun will come up earlier and earlier until then. With that much sunlight in the mornings, I should be able to keep up this routine until early to mid-August. (Barring any more week-long rain episodes.)
Surely by then, I’ll be able to fit into those capris that almost fit now… 🙂
