    Hi again Jo,

Thanks for your comment on my SPARK page! Just to let you know as I'm feeding the wild birds in my backyard, we've come across some interesting sites. A couple of times there has been a couple of wild ducks in my back yard, red tailed hawks and much to my surprise, on the high wires, were a couple of huge green parrots. It's amazing especially since we don't leave in the country.

    Wow 25 blocks! That is amazing! I could be wrong about this,but I always thought for some reason that 12 blocks generally equals a mile, however in some places thats not true, it could be 10 blocks..Thats a really good walk! emoticon

Update on walk around town

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

A week ago I made a commitment to get back into walking by walking around town. I began by walking 13 blocks and today I walked 19 blocks. I was dragging by the time I got home and certainly didn't set any speed records, but tomorrow is another day. :)

New Commitment

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I used to walk a lot with my husband, but had to give that up several years ago due to problems with my right ankle. My ankle is so much better now though, and I have decided now is the time to get back to my love of walking.

So my new commitment is to walk around the perimeter of our small town by the end of summer, maybe sooner. :) That isn't a huge walk, maybe 2 1/2 to 3 miles, but would be huge to me. I started yesterday by walking from my home up to the main street through town and the plan is to increase that distance by a few blocks as I can. Wish me luck and good walking weather! :)
