If only sewing counted as exercise. If it was I’d be in great shape. As it is I’ve used the heat and/or rain as an excuse to do nothing. Well, I have been sewing, and that’s good mental exercise at least. I forget sometimes that we are supposed to be staying home, that it’s not just me being a slug.
This morning I got up before 4 AM and told myself that this would be the day I headed out for sunrise pictures. To Safety Harbor where I would very likely find a few other early-riser photographers to talk and possibly have coffee with. With whom to talk and possibly have coffee, insert rolling eye emoji here. And then, suddenly, it was almost 6 AM. I had gotten on my banking site and set my bills to be paid, I’d gotten on Pinterest and looked at whatever, I’d checked out Facebook, and put up a blog post. But two hours worth? So fly out the door and barely make it out to the nearby bridge for the sunrise, or head out the door and walk the 2.5 miles around the park while it was cool-ish? I walked, I feel saintly, and I have to admit that it felt very good just to move!
Barring unforeseen circumstances I will be heading out to live up to my self-proclaimed title of ‘Snowbird’ that I have bestowed upon myself. This after exactly one summer spent traipsing around New England. This time I’m heading west, to the wide open spaces. I’m excited, and nervous, especially when it dawned on me that I probably should try on the clothes I’m planning to pack before I get there and can’t get into them. Did I mention that I’ve also been baking? A lot? Sigh…

We only started walking recently – and in the evenings. No photos for me… I’m enjoying yours 🙂

With no dogs to walk anymore it’s easy to skip a day, and then there’s the heat if I haven’t gotten up early enough to beat it. And then when I push myself to do it I feel better.
