The next is an award from Deb at Deb's Country Kisses. If anyone has any idea what this says, please share it! I'm pretty sure that it means something very nice like "I give you credit for a great blog" and not something like "Your blog stinks." Deb passed it on to fellow bloggers with the intent of saying she loved our blogs! Thank you, Deb! Please check out their blogs, as I love visiting theirs as well! I know I am supposed to post rules and pass this on to specific bloggers, but I am dead dog tired and have the hiccups, so let me just say that I think you all have terrific blogs and would be pleased to pass this on to all who read mine! I appreciate all the sweet friends who come here to visit.
Yesterday I took those first big steps...I started my walking routine. I put on my new sneakers, and oh my, the felt so good! There is a bounciness in the heal that almost makes me feel as though I could run! Remember when you got a new pair of Keds as a kid and it made you feel like you were Superman? It's kind of that feeling.
I just really wish I had taken my camera yesterday, because my son Sean and I walked to the football stadium and walked around the track. It was a gorgeous day with sunny blue skies and fluffy white clouds. The trees were green and swaying in the slight breeze, and the birds could be heard singing. I can't wait to take a pic of the track as its a powder blue! How cool! Instead, I'm going to show you an overcast, gray, less awesome day.
Here I am, raring to go. I just showed you the shoes, because the view from behind is quite sad ladies. Even the shot of the back of my head is not so hot.
Here I am in my athletic apparel. Ha. Come on Sean! Let's get walking!
Here we are at the end of the lane, looking toward the YMCA on the left, and the stadium on the right in the distance. Just beyond the stadium is the high school. There is superhero Sean in his Green Lantern t-shirt. He is a sweetie to want to come walking with his Mom.
Oh crap, there is a game going on at the stadium! We had to make alternate plans. Ok, let's walk to the end of this road! Can you see the end? Neither can I.
We actually walked to the end, walked up another street, than retraced our steps. I know for sure that I walked a mile yesterday, and am pretty sure that we walked at least that much again today. Oh my, the muscles in my legs were sore today! Luckily, I live in a nice neighborhood and I was looking at all the flower gardens and cute homes as we walked.
After all that, there is just one place I want to be right now! My comfy bed.
If you missed my post on my bedroom, you can find it here.
I'm sure it will take a few more days to walk off the soreness and increase my endurance, but I'm on my way!
