Sunday Walk

Monday, November 12, 2012

On Sundays our DS and family come over after church for dinner. I go for a walk with the four grandchildren (ages 5-10) after dinner. Yesterday our high was supposed to be 39 degrees and the wind was blowing. At that temperature I didn’t want to go for a walk so I didn’t say anything to the kids. In the afternoon the 5 yo came and wanted to know if we were going for a walk. Know how could I tell her no. We all got bundled up and off we went. Needless to say we didn’t let any grass grow under our feet. When we got back DS commented that we weren’t gone very long. As cold as it was they wouldn’t have been gone long either.

Thanks to GD I got in 20 minutes of exercise in. YAY!!!

    I'm glad you went for your walk with the grandkids that was another wonderful memory maker for them. I walked on Sunday morning before 7:00 am it was only 10 degrees. Waaaaayyyyyy too cold to be out but we were hunting so I really felt like I had to. After we got done hunting we moved all the stuff we bought at the auction on Saturday so I was out in the cold all day. Fortunately I had on my long johns and heavy coat all day.

    Way to go Yvonne! A good brisk walk in the cooler air would be good! It's great that the grandchildren are so into walking!
