How are you? How was your weekend? Mine was good. Last night I woke up around 3:30 a.m. to a thunderstorm. It rained hard for about 10 minutes, but that was it. Mabel did come in a bit wet. She was also up on the patio roof meowing when I got up at 6:30. Fletch and I were both noticing how much more affectionate Mabel has become over the past week or so. She is always coming up to us and rubbing against our legs, meowing and wanting to be with us. If one of us is outside and the other inside she goes back and forth...constantly! It has been nice to see this progression in her behavior.
Meanwhile, the weekend was good as I mentioned. Saturday morning I headed out to the canal path and took a leisurely walk. Finally (!!) I was able to do the length from Oaks to Phoenixville. That is roughly 3 miles round trip. I'm definitely walking slower than before the back issue, but I'm happy to be able to go that far.
It was peaceful along the trail, although more people than I've seen recently. It was a lovely day, so lots of walkers and bicyclists and a few runners.
Also plenty of turtles basking in the sun.
Also plenty of geese (and more turtles on the left).
I do love seeing blooms reflected in water. Just before this was a wisteria tree/vine in full bloom (ours is just starting to show buds), but the lighting was wrong and I couldn't get the blooms to show up. I was surprised not to see anyone kayaking or canoeing on the canal.
Sunday I debated about walking, but didn't want to over-do it after walking 3 miles on Saturday. So instead I opted for doing my PT exercises - stretching and strengthening and then headed out for a little archery in the back yard. Even though last week was pretty dry, things in our back yard can still be fairly mucky, plus there are so many ticks around. I had to protect myself!
Floral leggings and black & white houndstooth wellies! LOL The wellies are ones I bought years ago after the snake in the basement episode. If I'm running around in flip flops and need to do laundry, I will slip the wellies on before venturing down into the basement. Always an attractive sight to see whether I'm in PJ pants or shorts! LOL The wellies also come in handy for hanging stuff on the clothesline when the grass is still heavy with dew or after a rain.
So, I think today will be pretty much overcast all day...but up near 70 which seems appropriate for May. I'd love to get out for a walk, but will need to see how it goes. I have two conference calls this morning - one at 10 and the other at 11. I may be done in after weathering those two calls!
Wishing you all a Happy May and a great start to a new week!
