Oh the deets and the tails, as Mirielle likes to say...sunny warm weather, and again, I spent most of the day outside. We deserve it, after that long cold winter. The kids bring their school books out on blankets in the yard. The younger ones run through the sprinkler and wade in the little pool. Davian, the sweet three year old who comes over to spend days here, likes to dip his head in the water every little while.
We soaked up that sunshine today! Aaron stopped by for a few hours, and Margaret didn't have to work. It was busy yet not busy, as I did minimal maintenance, but not much real work.
Tomorrow: BEACH!!!! Oh how we have been dreaming of the beach! It is forecast to be 88 degrees (31.1c), with no wind. And sunny skies. So the beach it is! The water in Lake Ontario will be freezing, but the kids will still be able to fill their pails and splash around. Ahh, hot sand on my feet...I can't wait.
I have managed to stay in ketosis, and wow, it is interesting. I still feel a little bit weak and foggy-brained, as my body gets used to using fat for energy, but I haven't been hungry at all. No sugar for me, and for the first time ever, I don't really want it. This evening, I decided to take just a taste of dark chocolate from France...it tasted so sweet, I wanted to spit it out. Seriously. It wasn't like the old, "give me more!". Interesting.
It's late and tomorrow, bright and early, the beach!!! Then the best part...heading toward the big city...to the airport...to pick up Paul!!!
