When I walked passed a neighborhood of townhouses I found a nickel between two parked cars waiting for me to pick it up.
I was home after walking a little over three miles this time too, so walked a total of 6.6 miles. My heal was just fine for the rest of the way with the band-aid and my old shoes.
I never did walk yesterday morning but I got a good amount of exercise doing yard work at the old house. We left early morning and I spent four hours doing heavy yard work with a bit of help from Ken. He is getting things ready for a yard sale he hopes to have some week in the near future at the house. When we lived there I had the front yard looking really nice with lots of gardens, with rock paths and stone walls. It was a lot to keep up but I enjoyed it and would work in the yard most days. Now that we don't live there I just can't keep up with it. So I am in the process of taking the gardens out, moving the rock and stone to the back of the yard and just making it easier in the long run to take care of. I just want to be able to go over there and mow and trim and be done with it quickly. We have let the yard go and it looks really bad. Four hours have just put a dent in the work. But with the nice weather coming up it, I should be able to get it all done. We have no plans to sell the house yet. Ken loves the huge garage we have there and he has a work shop out back too. We will sell the house one day when the prices decide to go back up.
I finally got outside today and washed my very dirty car and now she's looking good again. No car washes for my car - I like to wash it myself. : )
Such a pretty sunny day out so far. I ate lunch out on the deck and now I have to get some work done in the house. I'll be out on the deck again later though.
A happy day to you on this fine Monday.
Happyone : )
Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees
on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of the water,
or watching the clouds float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time.
