Good morning and best wishes to everyone for a happy 2016. Our very unholiday-ish holidays are now over, and I continue recovering from surgery. Just a little over a week ago, we traded in my car for a new one with automatic transmission, since it’s likely I won’t be able to use a manual transmission for a few months. One week ago, J had knee replacement surgery. He came home two days later, and since then we’ve both been ill with some winter virus.
In between all of that, I’ve been strategizing for the new year, have decided on this as my motto for 2016: “Make your state of mind more important than what you are doing,” or, to put it another way, anything worth doing is worth doing peacefully.
All of the work stuff that I’d hoped to catch up on during the quiet holiday time still awaits my attention, and things aren’t going to be done as quickly as usual. My goal for today is to accept that and to keep moving forward and also to complete the top three most important tasks.
It’s been bitterly cold here, with high temps in the teens only (-12C). The lowest low was -18F (-28C), and there’s tons of snow, too. Happily, my new car has heated seats!
