Tom and I have been walking almost every day, averaging about 3.5 miles per day. It's good exercise, and with the weather dry again, it's enjoyable.
But my legs are getting weary, and it was time for a change up.
As the cold fog cleared this morning about 10:00, we decided it was time to get out into the yard to do some winter clean up. Three hours of leaf blowing and raking the lawn and and picking up debris qualifies as my exercise for the day.
It's looking clean and tidy out there again, and working in the sunshine was a treat, even if it was cold.
While I was cleaning, Tom was doing more grubby work, cleaning out some beds, clipping off perennials and vines and spading the final garden box where he harvested the last of the beets and carrots.
We've had a take-it-easy afternoon, and soon we will be leaving to go out to dinner. We are celebrating Isaac's 13th birthday this evening. Yesterday was his official birthday, and he had a party with school friends. Today is the family celebration.
Then tomorrow morning we will be in front of the TV watching football. The Seahawks are in the playoffs.
