The Beauty Around Us

Neighborhood Walk

Yesterday’s blog post was about having cabin fever.  I wrote that I might go for a walk.

I did go for a walk in our neighborhood. I left our house around 2:00 pm, after dressing for the 20-degree temperature.

Dressed for 20-degree temperature

I almost didn’t go for a walk, when I discovered that my winter coat was not in the closet. My coat was in the car that was at Bob’s workplace. I took a deep breath and sifted through the closet, looking for a suitable substitute for my winter coat. I found a substitute, one of Bob’s old coats. I had to search for a neck scarf, as Bob’s coat didn’t cover my chest or neck area very well.

As stated earlier, I left the house around 2:00 pm. I walked to our friends’ shop, Slagle’s Speed and Sport. The shop is about a 0.40 mile walk from our house. I visited with our friends Debbie, Paul and Shawn but not for too long. I would get too warm inside, dressed as I was, and I didn’t want to remove my layers of clothing. Debbie, Paul and Shawn were busy too, and I didn’t want to hold them back from getting done what needed done. I walked back home, arriving there about 45 minutes after leaving.

Did the walk help alleviate my cabin fever? Yes, it did a little bit. I think today and Saturday will go a long way to eliminating my current bout of cabin fever. Today I have a beauty salon appointment, followed by a doctor’s appointment.  I will take care of a few errands too. We have outdoor plans for Saturday and for a short while on Sunday too.

    I’m proud of you for walking in those temperatures. I haven’t done a neighborhood walk in a couple of weeks, although I have been out working in the yard.

    Hello, you are braver than I am. I do not like walking in the cold weather. Also, we do not have sidewalks and I would have to walk in the street. I am walking on my treadmill. I hope all was well at the doc office. Happy weekend to you!

    Wow—great job of getting out in that weather to walk!!!!! But–I’ll admit that I prefer walking and hiking when it’s cold… Hot weather is what I don’t like. I remember one of our few big snows here several years ago when George and I got dressed and took a long walk in the snow… LOVED it…

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and CHRISTMAS.
    Hugs,
    Betsy
