Walking on Sunshine

...and don't it feel good!!

This Easter break has turned into the holiday I so badly needed. I'm enjoying the sunshine and this beautiful Spring weather. Though damn birds insist on waking me up in the wee hours of the morning with their chirping and singing. Don't they know I want to sleep in? As ususal my internet connection is doing my head in. I've finally narrowed it down to a faulty modem, but trying to get provider to send me a new one. So, in the meantime, I'm trying to keep away from the net for fear that computer rage will get the best of me.

My time has been spent doing the things I enjoy most: gardening, cooking and reading. And music everywhere!!!! I've been teaching the little guy how to cook. I was going to start with just simple stuff, like sandwiches or scrambled eggs. But the little guy aims high, so doing the works! We're talking Mediterranean cuisine! Luckily, we have quite an array of herbs & vegetables in our garden. He loves fish, so yesterday I showed him how to clean and gut them. I thought he was going to go all "this is gross" on me, but no! I think he was actually enjoying it. Ah there's hope that's he's inherited my cooking genes (and not his dad's!).

I've also been doing a lot of walking, preparing for you-know-what. (the Camino! Shhhh!) I haven't talked about it much because I'm so afraid of jinxing it. I realise how so not fit I am, meaning I fear not making it the whole way. But I'm determined to give it a try and if I have to call it quits along the way, so be it!

Tomorrow I've got my uncle Armie coming over from Canada! Yay! That means I'm getting a lot of goodies! Double yay! He also says he's bringing a surprise guest. Triple yay! I'm like a little kid in anticipation. It could be a new girlfriend; however, I have a feeling it's an old friend of mine. I had a peek at this friend's website where he mentions a trip to Europe soon. Oh the joy! Oh the excitement! I love when my uncle surprises me like this cuz it brings out the little girl inside of me.

YAY for surprises and your uncle visiting! Enjoy cooking with your little guy. You'll do fine on your walk, I believe in YOU! I singed up for a program to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks and if I don't lose the 20 pounds, at least I'm doing something to better my health. That's how I'm looking at it.
Enjoy your day!
