Wednesday's Wonderful Weather Walk

On Wed we had wonderful weather. It was warm, but not hot or humid. There was a light breeze, but it wasn't windy. It was absolutely gorgeous.

Usually Joe has client appointments on Wed nights, but last Wed he didn't, so after dinner we decided to go for a walk. We brought Jordan with us, although we knew she'd only be able to walk with us for a while. With her age and past disc problems, she's only able to go around the block once. But she adores going for a walk so we took her, brought her back home, then set off on another walk of our own.

Walking is so good for you. Unlike running or sports, walking won't damage your body. To the contrary, its excellent for your cardiovascular system, and helps you lose wait, want to eat less, and feel happier, due to the endorphines that are released.

We walked about a mile away from our house, then turned around and walked back home. It wasn't about where we were going; it was the journey.

I like walking too, because it gives us uninterrupted time to talk about things, discuss, plan, debate, organize, joke, and laugh. No TV or radio in the background, and no telephones; just the sounds of nature and suburban life around us.

I hope we'll do this more often.
