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...
