Still haven't had a freeze here in Florida. Color me happy. Some days ago I heard predictions of the mid-twenties and I was so not looking forward to that. Accuweather only showed a potential low of 31, then 33, then 35. I think we hit 40. It's all good. When I first stepped outside with the dog today, I knew we hadn't even had a touch of frost because the ferns were all green and happy, the butterfly gingers tall and green.

Walking has begun to show a positive effect. A few days ago when I turned on to University and looked towards the bus stop sign, I was happy, content, relaxed, not oh my god why is it still sooooooooooooooooooooooooo far away.

My pace is picking up, too.

Walked to the further stop at least twice during the week (always have to on the weekend but did so on at least Wednesday and Thursday, Monday and Tuesday are already not even a distant memory).

Had a lovely conversation with a lady named Gail who does the free giftwrap at BAM every year. She runs an animal rescue, Animal People. I asked her if she would like some snuggly blankets for the fur babies and she said she would.

Dropped off my Christmas gifts at Publix. I hope Tiesh likes them.

Used my round loom and made a hat. A hat for people with small heads. I could force it on me. But I come from a family of people with big heads. Once I figured out what I was doing, it was easy and fun. I'm going to make more. Next year at Christmas I hope to have hats, scarves, blankets, and the like to donate to folks. It's good to have a plan.

So, to sum up, chilly but not cold (crazy cold in Big Brother Land, they're at 6 degrees fahrenheit at almost eight thirty pm), made a new, almost friend in Gail, knitting is good, and walking is wonderful and I'm beginning to look forward to my daily walk.

And I almost plucked rosehips off Gartendirektor Otto Linne and Champneys Pink Cluster with the intention of popping them into some potting soil. Maybe tomorrow.
