I enjoy my walks, even in the rain as I have good waterproof clothing.
But, the dogs, even Herbie, will only go so far before turning for home.
At the weekend I put "walking" into the you tube channel and came up with scads. I looked at a few,
boot camp style, mmm No Thanks.
Airy Fairy laid back to horizontal, No Thanks
Aha, walk a mile in 15 minutes, At Home, mmm maybe.
So I had a look at Leslie Sansone, all teeth and hair like one of Charlie's Angels, the originals.
There was the usual backing group, all fit as fleas with a couple of obligatory men thrown into the mix.
I turned the sound off and watched.
I rewound and Joined in.
I pressed pause and removed Herbie from the equation, he was as mad as a March Hare.
Then started again, I did the whole thing and felt fine, I was quite warm but not steaming hot.
I have done this every morning since and it has got so easy, so fast, that I am going to try the next step tomorrow. A 2 mile walk.
It is dry,windy and sunny here this morning so I have also walked about a mile outside. It is much nicer than the living room, breathing in the fresh air, looking at all the leaves unfurling in the hedgerows and so on.
I will keep up the walking first thing though, it makes me feel energised and fit to face the day.
Whether I will make the 2 mile tomorrow or not, who knows, I will give it a go and keep you posted.
I still have that heel to finish, that is because Herbie stole my yarn out of the bag that was on the table and spread it round the room. He managed this in total silence while I ran hot water for washing up, so about a minute at the very most.
He was told off in no uncertain terms and banished for a little while.
Then my knitting time was taken up with turning a hot mess back into a usable ball of yarn. Not an inch was wasted, as I patiently!, me Patient wonders will never cease, sorted through all the tangles I listened to my audio book, Mary Poppins in the book is not as sugary sweet as in the film, but much more entertaining.
i loved the Dancing Cow story.
I will have to make certain that I put my project bag on the dresser from now on. The coffee table is just too accessible.
Oh Dear, I have just noticed that the sunshine has gone and a cold murky grey has taken over. Ah Well, it was good while it lasted.
back to the lavender pouches for me.
