Today was take-care-of-the-body day.
First, my own body. It was above freezing when I walked the block up to the fitness center this morning to do my hour-plus on the treadmill. A few other people came and went while I was there, young fit folks getting in their workout before heading to work.
One thing I like about our new place is that the apartment complex fitness center -- though small and with limited equipment, we do not have to share treadmills -- is a five-minute walk away. When I had to drive into Reedsburg and back, an hour of workout was a two-hour time commitment, what with driving and getting cleaned up afterward. That ate up the better part of a morning, which was one reason that I went so early in the day. Now I can eat breakfast at leisure, go to the center, exercise, return, shower, make a fresh cup of coffee and be at the desk writing before nine.
Also in the own-body-care area I suppose is cooking. A kind reader sent me links to a couple of simple recipes the other day, and tonight I plan to make Chicken with White Beans and Tomatoes. As promised, it does sound very simple to make. Click on the link if you want the recipe.
UPDATE: It was tasty, too!
The other recipe is for an Italian sausage soup, Zuppa Salsiccia, and I intend to give that one a shot on Sunday when the temperature is supposed to get brutally cold. Again, click on the link if you are interested in more information.
Then there is the car body. The insurance company sent us to a place that is right up the road and we took the car in this morning. We expect it to be in the shop until sometime next week. As soon as I get it back, I need to make an appointment, fortunately at a dealer who is also right up the road, for an oil change and tire rotation.
