My morning and fits Skywatch
Starting this week I teach an early morning Seminary class (New Testament) at 6:00am and so I cannot walk w/ my walking partner at 6 any more --
:( and I had only walked one day this week on my own it is because the couch keeps calling my name -- 'Marcia' "come take a nap", "you're tired", "you get up so early"hmmm I have to stop listening--- and get out there to walk my legs are firm, strong, I don't want to loose that-- but my will is sooo sleepy(yawn)
So, today I knew I had to do something to trick myself, or force me, to not listen to the couch and just walk (does anyone else play tricks on themselves ?? or is it just me? Cause who am I really kidding??? Well the plan was to stick my walking clothes and shoes in a bag, in the car, so I would not think about it in the AM. Then after teaching, walk home the 1 1/2 miles, then after seeing Z off to work, walk back the 1 1/2 mile to pick up my car,before my 9:00 appointment, Well I must be easily fooled, because it worked. I grabbed my camera to be my walking buddy but still tried to keep a good pace -- I was home in about 25 minutes because I encountered a few distractions like the pretty acorn above
The pre- sunrise flags
And these crazy sprinklers I did not know they oscillated till I was running past them LOL it was fun
When I looked back I got a little wet:)
I snapped a picture of this man in the park he amazes me -he is in his 70's and we have seen him daily for years 6 AM walking one day and running every other day- he always says something like "Hi Pretty ladies" but lately he has been asking where my tall friend is? -- my friend that only gets to walk w/ me occasionally now I guess he misses her:)
and this pretty little flower
My last un- named thing was a gas line sign in the park
I also saw this can you guess what it is ?
It took me a couple of minutes to figure it out my self and people stared at me taking the picture too.
