There are (counting today) 4 days left until April 1st. I’ve got 4.95 miles to go. I think I can do it!
I haven’t been to the Y since the day I broke my toe. I don’t think I ever told you about that but, yeah, graceful creature that I am, I stubbed my toe on the leg of the kitchen table and ~crrrrunch~ broke “this little piggy had none.” Anyway, I’ve been nervous about the treadmill causing pain since that day so I’ve ramped up the other walking opportunities in my life instead. These last few weeks I’ve been doing mostly the walking videos available from my cable provider or I’ve been taking advantage of the better weather and walking outside.
The nice thing about walking outside is that it gives me a chance to take pictures of pretty things for you guys.
Like these crocuses. My crocuses, as you may have noticed, are all yellow despite the fact that I planted a variety of bulbs. My father-in-law’s crocuses, on the other hand, are all purple. Go figure.
The walk to the river has been our regular walk of late. The dog can run free (and jump in the water!) and we get to wear our L.L. Bean boots to protect against the mud. It’s a great chance for Dale and I to talk and catch up on what’s going on in our lives. Plus, we get to look for signs of spring. There are teeny buds forming on some of the trees and bushes and there are green shoots poking up through the soil. I haven’t heard peepers yet but I know it won’t be long now.
It’s still pretty winter-y looking but at least the snow and ice are gone!
