Bah. Almost 3 weeks since my last upload! I know I've been away longer but not in recent times, ya? I can't remember how this one started, but it became mainly about me being mentally preoccupied with blood sugar issues. I started my brisk walking again on Jan 28th (hadn't been in 6 months plus) and have been watching what I eat (went a bit crazy in November and December) and things are starting to normalise...*phew*. I've felt fine (peace-of-mind-wise, especially) for over a week now but still haven't found my EPZ mojo Sad

I couldn't miss Valentine's Day, though Smile

Ok fine...I acknowledge the fact that it's a commercial time of the year. And that love, gestures and appreciation shouldn't be reserved for just one day. And yadda yadda yadda. I don’t care. I still love Valentine's Day. So there Smile And if you make an extra big deal of someone on February 14th, what’s the harm in that, eh?

Anywho…Happy Valentine's Day, people.

Have a good 'un Wink

I’ll be back in the swing of things soon enough. For now, I hope this image ain’t too bright or dark. Just got a new monitor and I haven’t fiddled with the settings. My old one gave up the ghost on the weekend Sad As much as I like the new one, I miss the old one.
