I ventured out yesterday. Was nice weather, not too cool, not too hot. The flower in the vase in my picture is from outside the house. I am enjoying that May has been relatively mild. I only went to Target. I wanted to see how well I could move around now. Walking is painful. The weight causes back and knee pain even after just walking a little while. I want to try to go out again today, though. Just so I can get over my social anxiety and fear of being out in public. Plus, I get more exercise than what I am getting here by walking the stairs and doing my resistance workouts.
I have a birthday coming up. My parents were Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we never celebrated birthdays. Or any holidays for that matter. So, I never actually do anything special, although I consider myself agnostic. This year will probably be no different. As a gift to myself, however, I am going to finally put my into starting my scarf line featuring my own artwork. I have been talking about this, literally, for years but just never felt confident enough. I am cautiously excited about it.
