walk on a chilly morning
My DH called me at 8am to ask if I wanted to go for a walk when he got home from work. Sure, I said, trying to be cheery, even though he had awakened me from a strange dream. My plan was to get back on track with diet and exercise today, so that was great timing. I put on some jeans that were less than clean, pulled my hair back in a pony tail, slipped on a t-shirt and sweatshirt and waited for his arrival. Shortly after he got home, I was checking out Yoville (almost have enough coin to buy my Cape Cod) when DH made a disgusted noise...he was trying to put my shoes on. You see, my feet are big and so we get our shoes mixed up easily. Anyway, we got our walking shoes on and away we went. It was cold...32 degrees! It was good to get out and walk...I have had so many things going on the last couple weeks that I have really ignored good eating habits and exercise has only been hit or miss. We were walking under the railroad underpass (highline as they call it here) and spotted a tiny little white mouse! He looked like someone's pet. He didn't look underfed, but I wanted to go to every house and ask if anyone had lost a mouse. You just don't see white mice out in the wild like that! I am still thinking of the little guy and hoping that he hasn't become anyone's lunch! We had a good long walk, although it wasn't as vigorous as it should have been. Stopped by the bike shop and when we got home we took our bikes over to have Spring maintenance done. Last year we didn't ride at all, this year, we just have to. DH took a new bike for a test drive, but decided to wait. It seems to be warming up, maybe I can get some outside work done. First priority has to be cleaning out my car and filling it back up with work junk that is sitting on the porch.
