Today I woke up at 5:45 am, an unusual thing for me and I don’t know why, I guess I have enjoyed the luxury of not having to wake up early way too long. I was going to run with a friend on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and today it was our first day. But it ended being the last one too, it did not work for her, so I am going to have to do this by myself, and it can be any day, even every day if I want to.
Our morning run/walk was beautiful. As we went around the neighborhood, we wondered behind, where we have a pond and the grass is a bit more untamed, and we saw white sweet clover between the wild grass, a few distinctive cotton tail wild rabbits, beautiful flying egrets, and the most common birds I’m so far able to identify, sparrows, starlings, black and brown crows, so pretty both types, the black is iridescent, almost blue, and I heard the morning doves (I didn’t see them this morning). I need to keep running and walking and looking around early in the morning. I may come back a bit before seven, when my husband leaves for work, have breakfast with the girls, and take them out in the wagon for morning walks and an injection of lovely nature in the suburbia. Anyplace can be good for a nature walk, some are amazing, don’t take me wrong, but you can still enjoy what God has created even in the confines of your neighborhood.
