Encouraged by The Blue Ridge Gal’s most recent blog post, I put on my walking shoes and went for an afternoon walk. I had a destination in mind — our local water company, where I would drop off this month’s utility payment.
My neighbor, two doors down, was in her front lawn gardening. Sue invited me to see her back yard flower gardens. I’ll be sure and do that sometime this week. Sue’s yard is lovely, front and back.
I walked three blocks and heard falling water. I looked around and found this water garden. Isn’t it pretty?
As this girl approached me, she asked if I wondered why she wasn’t riding the scooter. So I asked how come she was carrying the scooter rather than riding it. The girl said it hurt her toe to ride the scooter, so she carries it to the playground. This way she will be able to ride for a longer time at the playground.
I dropped off payment for this month’s water bill and visited for a short time with Linda S. before walking back home. I enjoyed our conversation, Linda. I hope you enjoy my blog 🙂
I walked a total of 1.2 miles today. I would like to walk on a regular basis. I know that the exercise is good for me. I won’t promise anything. We’ll just see how it goes. Thank you, Di (the Blue Ridge Gal), for providing the encouragement for me to go for a walk.
