Tomorrow I head back to work, starting a new contract after three months of being unemployed, and so apart from weekends, today marked the last time I expect to be able to take my morning walk around Deer Creek.
I have really enjoyed getting out of bed in the morning, and heading out around the lakes and golf course at Deer Creek to stretch my legs, listen to the birds chirping, and to watch the wildlife and trees. There is always something different to see every time I take a walk, and I will really miss it. At least I should have one weekend day when I can take my walk (the other I see my daughters and take them for breakfast, so no time).
I also still hope to go walking most evenings, which I also enjoy, and it’s different, especially in the dark. Of course now with Summer here it doesn’t get dark until late. Going out for a walk at 8pm even a few weeks ago would provide you with an awesome clear sky full of stars. Now the sun still hasn’t set by that time.
Well it looks as if my Squidoo Lens about my walks around Deer Creek has started a trend. Today Clouda9 published a lens about a Walk On Our Country Road, a lovely tour of the rural area where she lives, and it’s so different to Deer Creek, being out in the countryside.
I hope many more people will think about doing this. It’s so nice to see the places where people live, so inviting to stroll along with them on a virtual tour of their favorite places to go walking, and nice to see the photographs of these special places. So if you think you might like to do this, let me know. Just stroll out, camera in hand, create a lens or a blog post, and I will write about it. Maybe we can acquire a nice collection of these as time goes on. If nothing else, these will make great memories in years to come, something to hand down to the children and grandchildren.
Patricia Sanders (aka Jewelsofawe) also has a great lens about being out on her sister-in-laws farm. Take a look at Out On The Farm and see if you feel envious of the beautiful scenery. She also created a lens that gives a wonderful virtual tour of her Garden Of Veggies – the Apple Pie looks delicious.
