You have to be creative!

So my walking buddy and I are really trying to get out and walk every weekday morning. We have had to skip a couple times due to previously scheduled appointments and such. But we don't want to miss unnecessarily.
It's been really cold most mornings here lately and sometimes quite windy. But still we bundle up, leash the dogs and get with it. Today was threatening a cold rain. And I just couldn't quite see walking in it. So . . . . .
. . . . . we went to Walmart!
I'm sure we didn't walk quite as fast as through the neighborhood. You don't want to be running into other shoppers. But we each got a buggy, loaded it up with bottled drinks, and large bags of bird seed and pet food and made our way throughout the whole store.
We walked for a good hour, when I could drag her away from the shoes and toys. Then we returned the items we did not intend to buy, checked out and loaded the car with the things we did buy. Of course I had to carry them in once I returned home as well.
I know it wasn't a normal morning walk, but I think it was better than sleeping through the rain!
