I have been feeling nostalgic this week for the walks that the girls and the dogs used to take with me. Every walk was an adventure, and we were guaranteed to find something interesting. I would hold the girls' little hands, and we would chat about anything and everything. J no longer cares to go for walks with me, and I no longer have 2 dogs to walk with. In fact, I find it so much more efficient to get on the elliptical for 30 minutes, that I haven't walked regularly for a long time.
This afternoon after L's soccer game, she and Stella and I took a walk around the property. We found turkey feathers, cow hoof prints, and Stella almost had a conniption when she spotted a squirrel. L held my hand, and we chatted about this and that. It was lovely.
It did a great deal to relax me too. This is J's last week of soccer, which means that we can soon eat dinner together again at a decent hour most evenings. Things are looking up!
