With spring weather finally showing itz face, I just cannot get enough time outdoors! I definitely do a lot of walkin’ & talkin’ as the best way to catch up with friends and family is by gabbing on the phone while moving! Rain held off most of the day, but we had some showers in the late afternoon. When it stopped, I laced up my sneakers and leashed up Zoey. She was all like, “I’m not stepping my pretty little paws in those puddles!”
Seriously, she was. Diva dog. After much coaxing, we got on with our walk and we both took our time enjoying the new signs of spring. Zoey sniffed the fresh scents of neighborhood dogs and I took note of the trees beginning to blossom.
Itz been forever (or so it seems) since Zoey and I have taken our usual outdoor walks, and she was definitely huffing and puffing and showing some tongue.
Don’t mind her ridiculously long, shaggy hair. She is so overdue for a groom. Zoey took one lap around our neighborhood and told me she was done. I dropped her off at home and walked a bit more while catching up with my newly engaged little brother. Pretty soon the clouds began looking ominous once again, so I headed home.
Itz a good thing because there were tons of tornado warnings in St. Louis yesterday evening. Jonny and I took Zoey to our basement to stay safe until the storm passed. Some parts of St. Louis had a lot of damage (not us), so our thoughts and prayers definitely go to those people and families.
By the time I joined Zoey and Jonny in bed last night, I walked in to this site:
Zoey had literally tucked herself in bed!
Anyway, my point of today’s post is that a simple walk can be so many things. For me, yesterday, it was peaceful, calming, and relaxing. It was time to myself (with my furball) to think and merely enjoy my surroundings. Itz a simple walk, but itz really so much more.
What’s the best part of a simple walk for you? How’s the weather where you live?
