A walk a day keeps Konnie happy!
Boy, a good walk with my sis, Kris, does the heart good. Yesterday, I was feeling lower than low. I could not shake the doom and gloom mood all day. I did go to my book club last night and had a great time as usual, but that was the only reprieve I had in my sadness. Feeling more myself now. I met Kris at her house before 8:00 this morning and we went for our long walk up the Abbey hill, walked our laps around the courtyard, went down the hill and back up it again. Quite the workout. Then stopped at the Abbey coffee shop and had our morning joe. Then, just to make it more spectacular, as we started heading down the hill again, we saw 4 dear, one a fawn. We stood there and just enjoyed them for a moment.
So my heart is feeling better. I bought a couple of cards to send to my cousins to let them know I am praying and to extend an offer of help in any way I can. So I will send them off today, work around here, take Reggie for a long walk with my camera, because I think our dry days are numbered. This evening is the only evening that LL and I have together during the week, so I need to go get a few things at the grocery store and make a nice dinner for tonight. I have no idea what I will be making. But it will bound to be a “fall” meal. I love food during the fall. Root vegetables, squash, soups, meat loaf, etc. I think I will just go look around the store and see what is on sale and decide what to make then. Oh, and I can’t forget the coffee. Oh man, this morning I realized I forgot to buy coffee yesterday and we are totally out. You don’t want to be around me when I am out of coffee. I quickly ran to convenience store this morning and bought a cup. Lucky for Kris because our walk this morning would not have been quite so cheery.
As I said before, I am hoping to go for a picture-taking walk today. This time of year, leaves turning, the lighting, porches decorated with pumpkins, etc. My favorite time for walks and pictures. So if any are interesting, I will post some.
