coldest night of the winter. working up my farewells.

Well, rock climbing today proved one thing to me: If I want to climb better, I have to shave off some weight. *sigh* I guess it's time to get serious about The Discipline again.

In very good news, I got my author copies of The Sea Thy Mistress today, which means it's likely to be in bookstores on the planned release date of February 1st, or possibly even a little before. There will be photos when I have Daphne back, as Ethel chokes on raindrops.

And now it's time to bring you my favorite January song, in honor of -10 with windchill. I can even kind of sing it, though not in Greg's gorgeous baritone.


Ohhhh, the Discipline. Ungh. I gotta get me some of that. The yoga studio owner, no less. Oy.
I share your need to "The Dicipline". I have to be ready for the rest of Vermont's Long Trail by May - only three months to go (yikes).
Whilst your are at the several summer venues, I'll be walking the LT, or finishing up the AT in Vermont and New Hampshire.
(forgive me this one) Hang in there. Cold - this too will pass.
I've not been doing so hot on the losing weight post Thansksgiving, and it was one of my goals for improving my climbing. Sigh. I'm soooo not looking forward to controlling my diet. I can do it, and I don't even really mind it on a day to day basis, it is the blunting of my ability to cook the particular meals I enjoy making for my friends (baking cookies! fancy hand shaved chocolates and ice cream and raspberries and hand made whipped cream! giant steaks! etc.) that I don't like.

But, it probably will make the climbing much better, so I'm right there with you. I had some good climbs last night, including a 10b that felt more like a 9 except for being 65' tall and overhangy. Almost ran out of steam at the top, was monkey-pawing my way through the last three or four moves.
