A Walk and A Swing

I go through periods of working out and not working out.  Coming off a very sedentary winter, I have gained more weight.  So I am trying to jumpstart myself into working out again.  With this in mind, I have been making myself take a walk everyday.  Now I live on the middle of a hill.  So either way I get a decent workout, going up or down, as eventually I have to go up or down again…

I’ve been taking my camera with me.  Last week I started taking pictures of some of the old houses around here….but today I went to the park and I swang (??) on the swings….

DSC03782 My new Sketchers…had to replace my old ones when I realized they had a hole in the side.  I love me some Sketchers!  Look at those white legs!

I also watched a softball practice while I swang…mainly so I could watch for those balls…some came kinda close…

The best part of today?  I received some genuine Irish yarn!!  My bestest bud was on the lookout for me last week….Look at these beauties!

Swing, Swang, Swung! I've never smelled, smelt, sniffed a real live sheep- what's it smell like? I do have some winkle shells from an Irish beach, they smell beachy!

Good luck with your walking!

Love your spring background! How lucky you were to receive such a nice gift - any plans for it yet?

Glad you have spring. And if they still smell like sheep, they must feel great too.
