Dear Jilly -
It is quite wonderful that you focused on resting and healing! That was exactly what you needed.
Now you can see what activities you are drawn to, and enjoy those! If hiking brings you contentment, then that is wonderful
In terms of what I enjoy we are too cold here to hike, and definitely too cold to kayak. So I am focusing on my indoor enjoyments like yoga and Wii dancing. Even those, I've been so busy that I've put them off. I am pushing hard to get all sorts of household stuff listed on ebay etc. for the holiday season. So I should gain time in a few days when that no longer becomes such an imperative.
