a commitment to taking more walks

I have been on many pleasant walks. So many, in fact, that I was resolved at the beginning of fall to take more walks.

Two Sundays ago, Abe & I took a mid-afternoon stroll around the neighborhood. I was fascinated with taking pictures of the beautiful scenery.

Abe was talking on the phone with his father.

Meanwhile, the sky looked like this.

We decided we'd better return before the clouds got angrier. The sprinkles started as we were walking down a dirt path back home. Abe was still talking to his dad.

The sprinkles got heavier. We started to jog. Abe was still on the phone ("Uh huh. ... Yeah, that sounds good, dad. ... Sure. ...").

Now it was pouring. And I had taken a wrong turn on the path so we were headed back the long way. Abe was still on the phone, but managed a graceful exit ("Actually, we're running through a rain storm right now - can I call you back in a minute?").

Did I mention that I was in a skirt and sandals this whole time?

The photo doesn't do our sopping selves justice.

Dawn stole what I was going to say. You guys really are cute!

I enjoy going on walks too. They're very relaxing have a calming effect on me.

I found that importing blog posts as notes in Facebook led to a weird confusion of comments there but not here.

This last time I posted a link to a post (after having disabled linking via Notes). I had more detectable visits to my blog that way. Depends how you want to roll I suppose.

Blog themes, fonts, and arrangement add to the reading experience.

And yes, you two are cute like DKing says.

Still haven't met the Mr.

Maybe someday.
