i knew when i said yes to a friend in need i'd be blowing tuesday to shreds, but it wasn't a total washout - i got baby jake's carseat over to his daycare, grocery-shopped with libby, and managed to create a credible veggie dinner: green and yellow squash, peas, green beans, corn, carrots, pine nuts, pearl barley and quinoa pasta all blended together with a touch of olive oil, roasted garlic and herbs from the garden.
im pleased to no end with the progress i've made with my feet. between the accupuncture, the reiki, the tumeric, the pedicures, the yoga, and the toe dividers - my feet are actually no sorer than they ever were, despite a busy weekend driving and walking in manhattan. from a 7 on a pain scale...my pain has diminished in both feet to .5. i've decided to order a pair of customised orthotics... i like to walk too much not to be able to do so in comfort without risk of further injury, and im going to order a pair of walking shoes to fit the orthotics.
tomorrow evening im speaking at the public library in columbia, ct as part of the Connecticut Authors' Trail. im thinking of taking a page out of meg's irish professors' methods, and winging it.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
