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.
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.
