How has your January been? I've been adjusting to my new dietary guidelines and while some days are good, I really haven't been my normal, positive self. It's a bit of a challenge trying to make dinner after working all day, especially when so many of my go-to meals aren't appropriate anymore. I am using the MyPlate app to track my calories and exercise, but since we've had so much rain, I haven't been walking as much as I should, and some days it all seems just too much work. But as I really don't have a choice, I start over again the next day. I know I'll get better at managing it all and soon enough it will be spring and I'll have more opportunities to get outside.
Steve and I went to the opening of the main library for the city of Norfolk last weekend, and it was quite a lovely experience. The old building was razed about two years ago, in part to make room for the light rail, and in part because it was terribly outdated. The new one is a beautiful blend of high tech with some old architectural details, and it's full of light.
Not sure if I shared the details of Steve's Christmas hats or not, so here they are. This one is made from Green Mountain Spinnery Alpaca Elegance, and the pattern, Ancient Mariner Watch Cap.
