Walking

 

We have had persistent fog during what was supposed to be a dry, sunny weekend. After our walk on Friday along the shore of the sound, we worked in the yard on Saturday, getting some cleanup done. 


Daffodils are emerging. It will be a long time before they bloom though.

Sunday afternoon we drove over to our nearby park for a walk. 

The sun never quite broke through, but we had a good walk and enjoyed seeing dogs running and playing in the dog park. 
I use the phone app Map My Walk to measure my distance, hoping for about 1.25 miles for each walk. Sunday I made it. In fact I completed the McMicken Chicken. See the chicken?


We live in McMicken Heights and this is Crestview Park. Paved paths wind around the playfields and through the woods of what used to be a school site. By repeating loops you can add up the distance. 1.33 miles is about my limit these days. 

Today, Monday, was housecleaning and laundry day. I was on my feet all morning, but since it wasn't raining we tried for another walk. After sitting for an hour for my late lunch, my back stiffened up, so I only made it a mile before getting back home where we sat down on the patio to extend our time of being outside.
The fog finally lifted and it was actually sunny here around mid day, but clouds are slowly moving in. 

Looks like we'll have showers off and on for the rest of the week. We'll try to catch some more walks between them.

  2. It looks like nice weather after Thursday's rain. I am getting better, too, but 3-3.5 miles is about all I can do these days, too! I see the chicken! :-)

  4. Spring and warmer weather is on the way for you. I walked about 2 1/2 miles today. I've only started getting out after the very cold weather.

  5. Keep walking. Here rain and mist and rain and mist. Longing for the sun, shining an hour of two.

  6. I love being able to say you walked the chicken today. Kind of puts a little fun in the walk. This time of year, you have to take advantage of the good days

  8. I can definitely see the chicken. That makes for an interesting walk in itself and the park paths look very inviting.

  9. I am envious of your emerging Daffodils. We still have snow in shaded areas and where the snowplow piled it up. But soon....

  11. Here in Honolulu we are having cool clear evenings and warm sunny days. And I don't get my walking done. I admire how you are disciplined and determined to get things done no matter the weather.

  12. I've noticed Daffodils coming up in our yard too. Seems like every year they come up too early. You have such pretty places to walk, and you are so determined. You always look pretty and happy, like you feel good.

  13. I'm always surprised at how early your springs are since we didn't get real spring until late March into April when we lived in Illinois.

    By the way, do you know that you can already order COVID test kits? https://www.covidtests.gov/
    They opened it up early to test it. Might be easier to do it now than tomorrow.

  14. We don’t have any sign of Spring in the garden yet. I wish I could walk with you!
    It would be good for my back!
