In The Beginning....

There were tow old people still young at heart that want to change the way they do things.  I want to live heathy and happy.  I want to cross a long hike off my Bucket List.  So tonight we strapped on our old hiking boots and headed for the Nature Center.  We got started late so we really could't hike too far...just a little over a mile.  But it is a start.





The Second Hike

We went to the movies the other night...a real date night and saw A Walk In The Woods.  Love it but not to crazy about the language.   A wild hair popped out...hiking 100 by the end of the year.  So we have started!


One of the best parts about this little adventure is that I get to be in the woods and as Michael would say...'enjoy nature.'  And I am enjoying it so far.  Just need to figure out the dinner and walking schedule so we aren't eating dinner at 8:30PM.

Iam going tot ry to look beyond the trail and see what there is to see tother than the dirt path in front of me.

I want to notice the changes of the seasons.
I want to see the jewels of the forest.

I want to learn the names of the plants.


I want to see the beauty in all things.

One of my favorite times of year is right around the corner.

Wanderings

I love wandering around the yard when there is no one else around.  I try really hard to notice the small things.


We have been trying to attract Monarch Butterflies.  I think this is our first.

I thought Mark mascaraed all the young sunflowers...missed a few...two.

Just wish I had more hours in the day to enjoy all of this good stuff!
