Just an Ordinary Day . . .

. . . and my goodness, how I cherish such days after a time of "crisis"!
My workout felt good: I'm using the 8 km podrunner downloads on the elliptical trainer since running is not working for my knees, and the music keeps me moving efficiently.
I enjoyed my lower body ST routine afterwards, and a little stretch, and a little chatting with my gym buddies, and my post-workout treat: German chocolate cake coffee (no calories).
Followed by my Greek omellette, newspaper, Charlie time, light box on a very cold but sunny morning.
I've got a steady day ahead but no pressing disasters (that I know about yet!!).
Now: what to wear to work?? Hmmmm. Pale yellow wool jacket to inject a note of spring into the day despite the temperature: and olive green pleated skirt, green and yellow silk scarf. OK.
The pleasure and deep comfort of the quotidian:
The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask;
Room to deny ourselves, a road
To bring us daily nearer God.
OK, maybe not QUITE as Calvinist as that -- but yeah. Ordinary. Good.
