Clothes on the clothesline,,(DD helped me), daffodils and weeds sprouting everywhere,, time for snow again ,. probably next week!
I am thinking maybe we can start this hiking in the park thing more often until it gets so humid we are unable to breathe the air outdoors.
Today being bill-paying day, made me realize how blessed I am to have access to money to pay my mom;'s bills,,
I am also blessed that there are self adhesive stamps!!!! emoticon

  


I see lawns and pavement!

    We too will have snow to come.
I did go out and raked the yard had great time doing it too.
We had a record high since 1946, and I know we have more to come.
Most likely at Easter we have had quite a number of White Easters.

    Same in Ontario - beautiful - sunny and warm. It makes you feel like you can achieve anything!

Now just have to start to get the feet to pound the pavement - burn of the energy and calories by walking!

Hiking in the marsh!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I got out of work very early this morning, so DD and I planned a hike in the marsh a few miles from our home. She took the camera for pics to share, I took binoculars. We saw mute swans, geese, lots of birds, a box turtle, squirrels.
They will be posted soon. We certainly got over our 10,000 steps plus the cardio was a great feeling. We were the only ones out there until we were leaving, a few stragglers came in off the beach.

I have discovered that Michigans' state parks and rec areas are great ways to be outdoors and meet people and nature,, wish I had more days to do things like this,, it was a fluke,, working extra hours the rest of the week..
The St. Lawrence Seaway is open now for the season, but many ships are not going through the Soo Locks yet due to ice floes on Lake Superior. We will see our shipping lane get busy in a week or two. I usually can see freighters through my binoculars every time I look out on Lake Huron.

We stopped at the pharmacy on the way home to pick up my meds that the doc ordered yesterday. I took one anti-inflammatory pill as soon as we got home,, I will try a half pain pill as he suggested Friday night,, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Way to go to see birds in the early morning when they are out and about hunting for food. Great you took camera and binoculars I take ours everywhere too but now DH has eye problems and I have a lazy eye it is hard to get them in focus, it takes time and I have to be standing still which I really do not like to do.

I am so ,looking forward to some more pictures it is great you and DD like to do these things together. Great on lots of steeps, I always feel better and sleep better after a long walk. I am so glad the days are longer. HUGS Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I was looking to discover what the Dr had said on your medical issues . I read the earlier blog and found this one instead. We had a number of appointments and we had to go for New Balance shoes in Skowhegan Maine so i did very little sparking yesterday. I am trying to catch up.
I watched the ships come over the road in the Massena lock it was fascinating As soon as I get over the mountains we will go to see a spark friend there and just maybe another in NY State i love to do that. (((((HUGS)))
now I will get to today's Marsh blog HUGS Pat in Maine . emoticon emoticon

    Sorry about your pain, I am doing better after a long time I hope it will be like that for you some time soon.
We still have cold wet weather and I am hoping it will warm up soon. I played with my photos all day long. I still have IE on as well as Firefox. I could not spin the wheel today because it said I did not have Adobe Flash player but it did not download so it gave me twenty points instead but my food and my BS kept getting lost. I do not want to call the young man on the weekend I will give him a call on Monday. In the meantime I will spin on IE tomorrow.
Take care sleep well ((((HUGS))))) LINDA, Pat in Maine
