I managed 1600 steps yesterday; enough to walk down a deep canyon to a lake and back up the other side
and as far as - another carpark! I didn't capture a screenshot of the cars; one carpark looks pretty much like another. This picture is looking back to where I was yesterday, (virtually, of course!)
Today was one of our meet ups with Son and Daughter. After the now-traditional waffles with bacon and maple syrup in the café we found a picnic table and played a game, or part of a game, of Catan. It can go on for hours so we set a time limi, otherwise it would have had possibly a nother hour to go.
Home again. I've actually d one quite a lot of the admin stuff from yesterday which makes me feel pretty pleased with myself. I think it's quite important to celebrate, in a small way, all the small victories of the day. I learned that 'Success breeds success' from some (probably psuedo) mindfully motivational selfy-helpy article, but it works quite well in practice. Set the bar low, sez I; then you can move it up, rather than reaching for the stars constantly failing.
I've knitted the contrast for the forethought afterthought heel of my sock (yes, I meant to say that. An afterthought heel is inserted after the rest of the sock is done, and the forethought bit means that I've marked where it will be placed in advance). And I've gone an inch beyond. So that's a small win too.
