Oh, I've been walking each day - early in the AM. The weather has turned dry with showers and storms around us but not much in way of rain in my neighborhood. I did three miles this AM, bound and determined to accomplish my walk and enjoy the route. It is not beastly hot then and the bicycle route along the canal has many surprises if you keep your eyes open. This is the second time I have seen a Blue Heron in the last week. Without a sound, he glided down from the sky and across the canal.
I am keeping my word about life work balance, but work has presented some major challenges. Less funding, layoffs, and temporarily losing my assistant due to illness in the family all have added to my work hours. So my walks are close to home and are keeping me sane.
