I did something today that I haven't done in a really long time. I went for a walk. By myself. For no reason than to walk. I know that doesn't sound all that special so let me explain. First, I'm not a couch potato. I don't want you to think that. Although there are moments when I can be a couch potato, a very content couch potato but I'm not thinking of those moments. I run but I don't call myself a runner. We go for family hikes and the boys and I will walk to the playground and around the neighbourhood. But since our family of two expanded to three and then four, walks by myself have been with a purpose -- to go to the grocery store, so the baby can have a nap, to get the mail, to get some much needed exercise. This morning, after bringing the boys to school, I decided to go for a walk just to go for a walk. I walked slow. I stopped. I stood still. Here are some of the things I saw.
I love when trees and plants grow from somewhere other than the ground, like this old post. And when I peeked down the rotten hole of the post, I found these guys keeping that little maple tree company.
Next time I'm going to try to capture a falling leaf on film. Not on my tongue.
