Getting out a little – Taking a Walk Around the Neighborhood!

Some days I feel cooped up and want to get out. Since we can’t travel very far I like to take a 2-3 mile walk around the neighborhood. That’s what my husband and I did today.

The weather was beautiful, the sky was bluer than ever with only a few cumulus clouds. It felt great to get out. Most days I have been exercising in my gym in the basement or taping to my TapFit CDs which are so much fun.

Here’s a few pics of the walk and flowers in our yard.

Huge mushroom I spotted on our walk. I wonder if it’s edible?

Maple tree already beginning to change

The above photo shows a maple tree that is beginning to change. Can fall be far behind? No, not yet!!! The year has flown by even if we didn’t do much to enjoy it other than stay at home because of COVID-19. I pray that the fall and winter will be better with less cases in this Pandemic and that we will be able to get out and about once again and feel safe. Stay safe and well, my friends! God Bless!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
