Please forgive my silence! I'm making up for lost time in my beloved mountains! I've hiked over 60 miles this month.
Mr. B and I have just returned from a Fabulous February weekend in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. On Saturday, we did a beautiful hike in the Cataloochee Valley area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He leaves on Friday for a week in France with one of his choral groups.
My eye doctor appointment last Tuesday brought a good news, bad news scenario. The good news is that he was very pleased that my corneal eye infection continues to heal "nicely." The bad news was two more weeks before being given the green light to wear my contacts again. He said the infection had been quite severe and attempting to put them in too soon could do more damage and was just not worth the risk. I didn't like it one little bit, but simply decided to make the best of it.
I have done well with healthy eating all month and expect some good things on March 1. I will do quite well while Mr. B is gone and look forward to a significant weight loss in March!
In the meantime, I'm taking full advantage of warmer days and cooler nights. It is perfect conditions for hiking and I'm choosing to spend every free moment in some area of the National Park. I am so very lucky to live within an hour of most entrances and have promised to NEVER take that for granted! So, forgive my lack of posting. I promise to be back soon!
What are your plans for March?
