Feeling like myself again

Well, apparently the stomach bug was one of those times when God brings something good out of something bad: I've had a lot of rest and I'm starting to feel more like myself. Still going to have to ask the doc for more pain meds and a daily muscle relaxer to help with sleep, but at least I don't want to take a 3 hour nap every day.
To celebrate, tomorrow I'm borrowing a kayak from one church member and going kayaking with another.
I'm getting pretty excited about this. And the one who's lending me the kayak will let me keep it a few days, so I'm planning to find someone to go out with on Saturday as well. If I can manage to find time to go once a week between now and when the local outfit sells their rentals off at the end of the season, I think I'm going to buy one. Yay me!
To be honest, apart from walking, this is the only real physical exercise I enjoy. I will do a little gentle free-weight work and ride the exercise bike occasionally because it's the right thing to do, but I don't really enjoy it. I used to love to canoe, though, and this is even better than that.
I also have a new craft to try out tomorrow, if I get a chance. If I have as much energy tomorrow as today, I want to get the office/craft room straight. If not, I'll be making beaded bookmarks for the church bazaar, and maybe trying a couple more bookbinding techniques. I really want to learn how to do coptic binding. I'll post photos if I come up with anything at all attractive.


  1. Glad you are feeling better. Enjoy the horses and the salt air...nothing better for those of us who are coastal.

  2. hey wondering how you been feelin'... good for you that you found something that gives you exercise & peace... enjoy the crafting! yesterday i bought some canvas cards, and picture frames to make a little gift for someone near and dear... can't wait to get painting... oh wait, yah i gotta pound out 2 sermons... and pack hubhc's crap (since he's not)... and unclog the sink... then maybe next week painting?! :)

  3. I love the idea of kayaking, but I don't think I'd ever do it myself. Way to go!
