this morning on my walk, I saw a few joggers and runners. No deer, I guess they were somewhere trying to keep warm. I think I did hear another pileated woodpecker but didn't seem it, at least I know that it is still around.

This afternoon, I did see several flocks of migrating Sand Hill Cranes going north.. It seems awfully early to be heading in that direction.

Leanna, where do you live? I have never seen a Moose in the wild. Turkey, squirrel, swans, ducks, geese, even an eagle and an alligator, but never a moose! That is very cool!

Oleander 5,
Hope your ankle feels better quickly. Even with all the energy those high school youngsters have, I don't think I'd want to return to high school. I wouldn't mind the energy but I wouldn't want to trade in my life experiences for it. I have enough energy to keep up with my husband, children and grandchildren.
My walk today was a bit less than yesterday. I'm sore and tired after working a High School music even for 10 hours. It was a long day. The gym was full of hot (sweaty) people. It was loud with the sound from the beating of all manner of percussion instruments and the cheers of the "fans". After 10 hours of pacing that area "hawking" we (my DH and I) sold enough raffle tickets to raise $450.00 for the school music program. Not a bad pay for 10 hours. My feet, legs and back were tired. I slept well. Today was a day of rest....mostly. A bit of yard work and spending time with my kids.

I really like the topic "On my walk today I saw..." I will have to go back a few days and I took a wrong step and twisted my ankle last Friday! However, I had jumped back into getting my body moving, going to curves, and taking the dogs for walks at the park. So... On my walk the other day, I way soccer teams. Little ones playing Swarm Ball and older ones looking tough. I saw highschoolers practicing their skateboard jumps, I remember having such energy! Inspiring!

On my walking today, I saw just over cast skies and very little sun.. I should be working in my yard while the weather is nice but just haven't found the gumption to do it.. It is not going anywhere soon, I'll have to get to it soon..

No sun here, but it is warm and the birds are returning. No walk for me today. I'm still waiting for the blasted blisters to heal. Instead I went outside and started to clean up my "war zone", (AKA the broken branches, tree limbs, pine cones..) in my yard. I've finished more than half of it. It's a lot of work and whileI didn't feel it while doing it, now that I have stopped my muscles are quiverring. Must have been a good work-out. Raking, lifting, dragging etc. I think I'll feel it tomorrow. Still have a lot of work to do.

It is in the 20's here. I would like 70's and flowers? Sounds really nice, but I guess the snow has to melt first so at least I can see the grass...sleeping beneath the 2 remaining feet of snow. We're making progress. No walk today....went to a travel show and walked around that...lots of walking.

On my 1.5 mile walk/jog around the bayou I saw several water birds and many varieties of wildflowers. It was a little overcast, but a gorgeous 75 degrees.

My neighborhood for a change, with some small mounds of snow-ice from three or four weeks ago, lots of tree branches down, a few walkers and runners, no flowers spotted, trees might be getting buds on them, and bored construction workers from the new sewer project that's going in.

Does treadmill walking count? If it does then, on my walk today, I saw several episodes of House Hunters International. People moving to Amsterdam, Mexico and St. Martens. I fast forward through the commercials.

Back in commission after our move. Took forever to get Internet at the new house. No walks though until I get the place in order...going to take forever though because we downsized and have way to much junk...I mean stuff. Hope to be able to scope out a few new walking routs soon though. However, with the cold temps. working indoors for a bit will be nice.

A lot of blowing snow....I went out to rescue my trees and bushes. The drifts of the snow were up to my hips in places so just getting around my yard through that resistance was more than enough to get my heart pumping not to mention the extra exercise of standing under the branches and trying to shake off the snow and ice to free those babies from the ice packs. Yeah, we got the blizzard.
