another Pleasant Valley Sunday...

So, I'm still on my walking program. I think I heard somewhere that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Tomorrow will be my 21st day and it feels like a habit now to get up, get dressed, walking shoes on, and head out the door. It makes my day so much better.

I'll tell you a secret. This morning I got lost. Our neighborhood has tons of side streets that sort of meander around, some of them ending up nowhere, some of them curving around eventually to another street, and some of them actually forming a sort of grid that you usually think of when you think of city streets. Anyway, I ended up pretty far from my house and what usually is a 30-minute walk ended up being over an hour and a half and almost 4 miles. The good thing is, I can't even imagine being able to do this three weeks ago. So I've come a long way in a short time and I feel really good about that.

Here are a few pictures I've taken the last couple of days. This is our horn of plenty I put on our hearth (can't see the horn, just the flowers).

Here's a better shot of it:

This is my wreath hanging on our front door.

And here's one more shot of it. You will notice Chance had to get in on the shot.

More later --
