Winter hibernation

(Bella & Izzy, looking a little disgruntled after somebody woke them up.)

I’ve gone into my winter hibernation phase.  Between that and not really having anything to write about, I’ve been largely ignoring the blogs.

I’m not sure hibernation is the correct word, now that I think about it.  I’m not hiding so much as keeping busy with a variety of projects, some of the tending-the-hearth variety and some involving self-improvement.  I’m exercising, hitting the yoga mat nearly every day, and following a new healthy eating plan.  All of those things suck up a good deal of time during the day, especially the healthy eating.  It takes a lot of slicing, dicing, chopping, etc., to eat healthy meals that don’t involve processed and/or convenience foods.

I’ve also been reading quite a bit.  I’m on my fourth book of the year which is pretty good progress for me after last year’s slow-down.  Spending less time at the computer allows me more time with books.

Other than that, nothing new here in the Bogs.  The warm up continues.  It’s gray and rainy today.  Rumor has it that tomorrow we’ll have sunshine and a high temperature in the 40’s.  That’s almost beach weather for this time of year.  Sunday we’re going way up into the 50’s.  Break out the summer clothes!

All in all, life is good.
