Here's That Rainy Day!

"Boy, I'll really be able to get my fitness back on track once the weather gets warmer!"
The weather has been so crummy every day this week, snow, sleet, rain, ice, wind, cooler temps (notice I didn't write cold - the January cold is gone) and these days, all I want to do is go out and walk in the sunshine or ride my bike.
I know I'm not alone here; there's a lot of us who are seeing winter scenes from our windows! Once in a while, I look out and simply can't believe what I'm seeing. (Just last weekend, I was starting to think about cleaning garden beds and picking up the yard of all the junk that mysteriously appears from underneath those snow banks.)
I work about 4 blocks from the library and a walk to the library on my lunch hour is a regular activity for me. During this week I had to pick up a book I had reserved; I had a deadline or it would go back on the shelf. I ended up driving there because it just wouldn't stop precipitating! What a waste of some good exercise time!
My fitness minutes are not where they should be so just to make it fun for myself this week, I bought myself Spark goodies; some fitness toy I already own and haven't been using and then I would focus on it for that day. They were perfect to bring out for that "rainy day." And what a fun surprise on Wednesday when my friend, MSLZZY, gave me a goodie; new workout clothes! I tried to find some new exercises for my old toys and I found myself actually looking forward to each new day and each new exercise opportunity!
April Showers bring May Flowers. I guess snow showers count too, it's still precipitation.
And my glass is still (and always is) half-full!
This was taken this morning, I do admit that it is still pretty (even at this late date.) And I think I see the sun shining on the branches in the upper left hand corner!
