Get Outside and Exercise

Since our daughter retired and moved in with us, until her house next door is finished, we have enjoyed getting outside and walking together. In our community, we have some nice farm paths to walk. This has been fun and has kept my mind off the troubles of the world.


She has been a big help around the house and has done all our grocery shopping so we can stay home. She has taken precautions in sanitizing, keeping her hands clean and keeping her distance from others.

Yesterday, she helped me pick up litter on the roadside in our neighborhood. It's much easier when there are two of you. Less zigzagging back and forth.

We had on gloves and used reach extenders and did not touch any of the litter. I felt safe doing this even with the coronavirus spreading. We live in a rural county and fortunately, so far, we have had only 5 cases of the virus.

On our way to take the trash to the dump, we stopped a couple of times and picked up litter that someone lost on their way to the dump. I do wish everyone would secure their loads.

It didn't take long to get this done and it sure did make a difference in the appearance of our country road.

Looks like we are going to be home bound for another month at least. I might have to cut my hair with the Flowbee. The beauty salons are closed until further notice.

Stay safe ya'll, but do get outside and exercise if you can. It's a real mood booster.

Today, we walked down to our neighbor's pond. The trees are beautiful and the pollen count has gotten much better. It has been a beautiful spring day here in North Carolina.

We saw some wild turkeys and also a Canadian goose in the field. The goose looked like it may be nesting there as it is on a hill and close to the pond. We didn't get near her but she kept a watchful eye on us.

Thanks for all the country pictures - reminds us that we are fortunate in so many ways we so often overlook.
I hope your neighbor's chickens are all doing okay as I love to read your postings you've shared with us.

Chickens are doing great. Did you read my chicken story "You don't have to kneel to pray"?

No, I must have missed it but I will definitely read it soon.
Thanks for letting me know about it.
I'm glad the chickens are doing good.
I wish I lived where I could still have chickens as they fill a void and seems comforting to me.

Another stroll down to the pond today to soak up the beauty of God's creation. The water was still and I was able to get a reflection picture.

This is a picture my daughter took with her phone. It turned out better than mine.

It must be marvelous to be able to observe such beauty first hand but very nice of you share it with us.

I think the blackberries are going to be plentiful this year. The wild ones are full of blooms.

You are so fortunate to be able to walk in such a beautiful area.
Sadly, I now live in a residential area and I still like to take walks but I do enjoy seeing your pictures that are taken 'first hand' as this makes it real and not just something on the TV.
My youngest daughter and I also live together - she is a wonderful companion and I know that I am blessed to have her.
Thanks and take care
