Spent the whole day at work... another scrappy garage sale.  When I was done, it was such a beautiful day, I convinced myself to go for a walk.

Yes, I had to convince myself.  Actually, I had made a promise earlier to go... but as time wore on, my Laziness Factor kept growing, and growing, and growing until all I wanted to do was go home to tackle the amazing amount of stuff that needed to be done.  But, as I left, I just drove to the park, and got out and started putting one foot in front of the other.

At first I was going to walk and enjoy the sights and sounds, but then... since I was so very tired, I decided to put my earbuds in and listen to some music.  Music always has a way to keep me going, and often, if the right song is playing, I move to that beat. So, put some good beats on and the walk is over before you know it.

Besides, it was pretty busy there with more than a few kids hootin' and hollerin'.  I guess they love to hear their screeches echo in the woods. 

However, I did pause now and again to capture some sights, and thought I'd share them here with you.  The colors were so pretty... I hope my phone camera picked them up, but of course, everything looks better when you're experiencing it first hand.

About two-thirds through my walk there was a small obstruction... poor tree fell across the path.  It must have been there a while, though, because the parts over the path were starting to decompose.  This is the same path I've walked many times before - well, you would know because you went with me once remember? -  but I guess I haven't been back in a while.  Stupid summer heat.  :)

Despite the lazy pull... I'm so glad I went.  It was a nice interlude in an otherwise busy day...


  1. It is all about making the effort and getting out there isn't it? It's that first step that is the hardest! Thanks for sharing those beautiful photos.

  2. Just showing up is the hardest part. I can always enjoy a walk, a workout, or whatever, if I can just get past the roadblock of showing up! Beautiful photos.


I love hearing what you have to say. Thank you for sharing yourself with me!
