I can only give myself a so-so grade for walking in January, but I’ll try harder this month. My February plan for improvement is stretching. I’ve never been flexible, but am getting less so as I get older. My plan is to stretch in the morning and the evening.
With snow on the ground, it's hard to believe, but we are still enjoying the vegetables from last summer’s garden. We have some onion and peppers chopped and frozen and we are still enjoying these fresh kabocha.
I’m still looking for a pair of Dorothy’s slippers! This week, on the morning I needed to go to Sapporo, it was snowing and blowing like a blizzard. The blowing snow caused drifts that closed the expressway, canceling the busses all day. The trains started running late morning, so I missed my morning Japanese class but was able get to my part time job in time for my afternoon classes. The trains were still running in the evening, so I did get home, although later than usual. Last winter I only worked at the university (across the street from where I live) so I didn't have any winter transportation problems.
As I was walking home from the train station that night, I found a phone in the snow. Ted took it to the university and with the help of one of his students, reunited it with its owner, another student.
I have several things on my calendar this weekend, so I hope the snow doesn’t prevent me from doing any of them. If I do have to stay home, I can always stitch. I just started stitching the beads on this needle book.
