January 2...a good day

Yesterday I got a back brace that Dr. Davé recommended and wore it half a day. Last night my back hurt all night. Today I have put on the brace all day, took a pain pill, and walked. I have been walking on the treadmill for a week now. I am up to 14 minutes at 1.3mph, and so today I walked .3 miles. Tomorrow I will walk 15 minutes, and I am going to hold it there for about a week. Remember my goal is to walk the 3 miles around Radnor Lake in Nashville on May 5...our 30th anniversary.

I, with Raf's help, have finally almost cleaned my studio. We are still finding things the raccoon did!! Tiny finger prints on stuff.

Went to H2JO for an Italian Cream Soda...finally got them to use Club Soda instead of Sprite. Raf got his regular mocha.

I drew this little chickadee on an ATC -size watercolor paper and sent it to a Glitter Sister. I got my Swap-Bot potholders and recipe ready to go tomorrow to New York. This is my 4th Swap-Bot swap, and while some people don't play fair, I've had good luck so far!

I am back to listening to KUT Radio out of Austin and San Angelo. They really have eclectic music, and I really like it. I play it on i-TUNES.

So...that's today. Hope everyone had a good January 2.

Keep up your healthy exercise routine. It's a great way to start the year right.
