back to reality
my christmas vacation has ended and frankly it feels good to be back to normality. the first two days of work were long, but now i feel like i am getting back into my routine. the children at school are darling and they were eager to tell us everything the three wise men brought them for reyes. i think i might have the best job in the world and i'm glad to be working again.
the past week was rather uneventful so i don't have anything to tell you about exciting trips or delicious dinners, but here's a brief update...
i started a new diet after christmas. not to lose weight but to clear up my skin (i've been having terrible breakouts lately) and surprisingly it's working better than i thought it would. i read most of this book last week and i've been following the author's tips. no dairy products, nothing made with white flour, lots of water, daily zinc and omega 3 supplements and little to no sweets (i cheat on the weekend). i'm blown away by the results.
i've been listening to this
i can't wait to see this
i haven't been able to read as much as i'd like to lately but i've finally started reading the lord of the rings (i've wanted to for years) and i'm crazy about it. the descriptions and words tolkien uses are magical.
“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.” Tolkien
have a great week!
