This will be a bit of a rambling post. It might not be my best, but I am posting it anyway because it represents my efforts to get back on track after the emotional roller coaster that was my November. I would write and take pictures every day with the intention of actually finishing a post. Sometimes, I was sidetracked and never made it back to the computer. Sometimes, I was just not in the mood. But overall, I am moving in the right direction.
The day before Thanksgiving I finally got back out walking. I walked less than two miles and I was in no hurry. I just wanted to put myself back out there. I didn't even bother to change into "workout" wear.
Now that I am back to walking, the neighborhood is once again under surveillance. This poor tree got a massive trim. I wonder how long it will take to recover.
The cold and the rain is taking a toll on the streets.
This street runs east and west. The yards on the left have southern exposure and the snow had already melted.
Saturday afternoon, my niece and I took Millie out to the farm to visit and work off some of her energy. She always has a great time playing with my in-laws' dogs. She plays hard and I think she was glad to get in the car to leave so she could take a break. One of their dogs NEVER tires and poor Millie tries her best to keep up.
While we were out at the farm we took a little walk down the road to pick up some eggs from a nearby farm.
Of course, it was fun to see y niece's junior high squad qualify for state on their first attempt :)
And then it was December. I am working out some specific and realistic goals to get myself back on track and stop the scale from going up. More on that next time.
