Bad Day Gone Good

When I awoke today I was greeted by dizziness, tunnel vision and a dull ache in my head. Such a fantastic way to start the day, right? So rather than injure myself by attempting to take a shower (I am far too young to die via a fall in the shower) I called out from work. I went back to bed and awoke a few (few=4 hours) hours later and I felt right as rain! I don't know what it all means but looking back at what I ate yesterday perhaps I had too much sodium(because I am totally licensed to make these decisions)? Now since I had already called out and I have a crazy amount of sick time I decided to take full advantage of this incredibly gorgeous day (I all hate me don't you hehe).

One of all time favorite activities is to go on nature walk (my inner hippie likes to get out and breathe every now and again). So I looked up some nature walks that I haven't been too yet and headed to the Muttontown Preserve. Normally, I am alright to go hiking by myself but this place had the creepiest vibe. I really want to go back because I didn't even get to hike in the woods.That would require me to go with someone though (any takers??) However, I did manage to get some pretty great photos. Here are just a few.

 Being out in the fresh air and sunshine really recharges me. I feel more like myself now than I have in the past few days. After leaving there I decided to take the long way home and enjoy the drive. Sometimes I am  marveled by the beauty of Long Island. On days like today I feel truly blessed to live where I do (insert nostalgic piano music here). On my way home I stopped by Cold Spring Harbor to take a few more shots.

Seeing these pictures makes me so happy. I know I am moving ever closer to my goal of 50 pounds lost and my new digital camera. Expect plenty more visual art to bombard your senses when that happens!
