And catch some rain.
Hope and I got stuck in a little shower during our walk today.
So in addition to me moving a bit faster (Go Cardio), we caught raindrops on our tongues. Had there been any puddles we might have stopped and splashed around a bit. See I am movin’ again.
After my last whiney post (sorry, it was a downer), I realized that sure, UnBlogAbles happen and they can throw you for a loop, mess with your mental and all. However, I was also allowing it to be a crutch for allowing prior
emotional eating, lack of exercise bad habits to sneak back into my life. No crutch today – ate right, got off my duff and went for a walk with my little munchkin. We were loving the brisk air and changing colors, and yes even the rain.
Hope was convinced that the leaves were touched by fall fairies, and she had to collect her favorites. How else could leaves change into such vibrant colors. To a kid, fairies seem much more logical than air temperatures and light cycles affecting seasonal change.
We must have interrupted the fairies because they had just began their work on this tree.
And I think it’s time to pick this beauty out of our garden and put the patch to rest for the winter.
Had another FawnDear first this week. Saw a Black Bear in the wild about 1 mile from my home. Tried to take a picture but he scampered into the tall grass.
The furry guy was sitting under this ancient apple tree two nights in a row. The first night I was so in shock from seeing a bear in the wild so close to home, I just parked the car and watched him watch me. Silly camera was in my purse the whole time but I was too in awe to think of it. Abner and Evo-man were with me and they were as wowed as I was. The next night Prince Erik told me Fuzzy-Wuzzy was back (same evening time, same place) and so I flew there in the car this time with the camera ready. However, he didn’t wait around. I saw him scurry over to the tall grass - Just missed him. I guess he likes apples and is filling up for his hibernation nap. For the short time being I’m not taking any walks through the neighborhood in that direction. Still was magnificent to see him. Viewing these amazing creatures in the wild so buries the zoo experience, and gives you a little thrill. Love the Pacific Northwest for showing me Bald Eagles, Orca’s and now Bears in the wild. Not too sure yet that I want to see a cougar – but hey, if' I’m in my car like I was with the Bear it might be okay.
