Long and Winding
I don't know about you, but it seems to be a little bit lighter than usual around 4:30 p.m. I was doing dishes and I thought "we should walk before it gets dark!"
If you utter the word "walk" anywhere near Frodo you are committed to walking. He looks so eager and happy, he prances all around doing twirls-he should have been in the circus.
We haven't walked the dirt road for many many weeks. Mainly because of deer season and I am afraid I might be mistaken for a deer. My dad insists that it would not happen but I do not believe him. So from Thanksgiving until one to two weeks after deer season I steer clear of the dirt road. Only paved residential roads.
It was so nice to be out and about in the woods. There might be one car that passes by. This walk there was a car and a neighbor's golden retriever walking down the road. He loves to greet Frodo. Frodo wishes he was as big as a golden retriever.
I might complain there is no snow this winter but I do enjoy walking in 40-50 degree weather and my running shoes stay squeaky clean!
I believe I will always want to live with woods nearby. I can listen to the silence and be in harmony with nature. I am so thankful that walking can be done anytime and anywhere with anyone. Frodo is thankful that he knows the word "walk"
