Saturday, we walked about 3 miles through a beautiful, very old local cemetery. We love walking through the cemeteries near our home, but hadn’t been to this one for a number of years. We both enjoyed it so very much.
After that, it was a pretty typical Saturday, went to the grocery, ran a couple of errands, worked in the yard. We fixed a huge salad with lots of great veggies for dinner.
After an awesome church service yesterday, we cooked up a quick lunch, changed into our comfy clothes headed outside again. This time, we walked a couple of miles on the track around a soccer field near our home. Surrounded almost entirely by woods, it’s beautiful…lots of wild flowers blooming along the edge of the track. Afterwards, we made our way back home and spent about an hour just relaxing in the back yard, listening to music and chatting (Glorious rest!) Then, we took about a 1/2 hour drive to visit a local arboretum (which happens to reside within a park.) What an incredible place! The walking trails are surrounded by a vast array of beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers. Truly God's creativity on display. We took a trail that was said to be 1 mile in length, but somehow managed to cross onto another trail along the way. Let me tell you, we walked ALOT further than 1 mile! Afterwards, with the help of their map, we concluded it was more like 3 and possibly more. It was positively gorgeous and we enjoyed it greatly, but we were two tired, sunburnt little cowboys by the time we finished! I carried my camera the entire time, in the hopes of capturing a few photos, but it was so windy yesterday (great for cooling you off when you walk, not so great for taking photos.) Maybe next time. = )
I typically walk 2 miles each night...I'll probably do 3 this week. I'm also being extra careful with my points, too. For some reason, this last 1.8 pounds has proven to be quite stubborn! I realize by sharing this I'll have to tell you how the weigh-in goes on Thursday. I'm hoping for a great report!
Hope it was beautiful where you live and that you, too had a great weekend!
