Musings of an afternoon walk
Sunday, January 17, 2021
I am so very thankful for my husband. Not only on the weekends but because he has been working from home since the pandemic hit, we often take a walk together sometime during the day. And because of the habit we developed, even when he has meetings throughout the day I have started taking walks by myself.
But today we walked together. We walked for 40 minutes. We walked through the neighborhood out to a divided street. Most of the streets have sidewalks. Going North we walked past the street where our Pastor and his family live. Past a nursing home, down a few blocks East a short street, South on another divided street, past another senior living complex. We walked West to walk past our first home in Texas some 35 years ago. That street has sidewalks. We remembered our years in that house, the birth of two children, remembering how our oldest learned to ride a bike, (the other two also did, we just didn’t talk about it.) Remembering our neighbors, things we did in that house.
Then back to the Main Street, a quick right and left to our current home street. Our current home and our first in this city would be on the same street if they went through the houses at the end of one. My move to our current city, I learned about cul-de-sacs. We didn’t have them back east where I grew up.
It was a good walk. I hate to log exercise that is not a multiple of five, so I walked around in the house for two minutes to even out my minutes.
I really do enjoy our walks together.
