Into the New Year

   I have had a pleasant three days of doing almost nothing after the business of the holidays. I did get a few cleaning chores completed but not close to the routine I was taught to adhere to. Before the New Year, all dust and cobwebs had to be brushed out the door. Lots of cobwebs in my basement.

   I have read a lot, worked on a jigsaw puzzle and had a few long walks. The weather has been quite mild (today +7C) so it was pleasant to be out walking the ravines. Also today saw the return to Friday pickleball and I put in a couple of hours of intense physical activity at the community centre. Next week it is back to a busy social calendar and a more healthy eating regime. The chocolates are all gone! 


  1. It sounds like a lovely day but what's a 'pickleball', please?

  2. I too am intrigued to know what pickleball is...

    1. Pickleball is a blend of tennis, badminton and table tennis. It is incredibly popular here and very good cardio exercise. You should be able to google it or find a YouTube video. I only took it up last year and just play in the winter, so still learning

  3. Yes I think most of the city returns to "normal" schedules next week. In the milder days we have had rain & drizzle in our area so no outside walking, thankfully the treadmill has a good view (col).

  4. Sadly I exercise in the basement which has no view at all!

  5. I have to get down to some proper cleaning now we have the house to ourselves - just not sure where to start!
