The sky is a bright blue this morning - there is hardly a cloud in the sky - the sun is shining in the living room - and Miss Ashes has curled up in a sunbeam fast asleep. Warren and I were watching the Sunday News before he headed home. I found myself getting drowsy (lazy might be a more accurate description) in the sunshine.
So when Warren got up to leave - I decided to pull on some jeans and a turtle neck and go for a long walk with my camera. After all how cold could it be??!!!
I headed off with confidence - though it was a bit nippy. I took the back paths strolling along enjoying the sunshine and the cool nip of the wind on my cheeks. I remember even thinking 'I will have rosy cheeks when I get home'.
I walked and walked until I came out the other side of the complex on the main road. I headed north and then west - heading home. I figured I had walked far enough for my first major outing.......... and besides I wanted/needed a second cup of coffee.
As I turned west - the wind bit into my face. Stupid me.. that brisk wind that had been on my back all the way out - was now a deep freeze winter gale blowing in my face!!
I have never been so happy to see my lil condo. My nose was dripping - my ears were burning but yes I have rosy cheeks. I checked - I had walked for 30 minutes - not bad for my first jaunt.
Now I will curl up in the sunbeam - enjoy it's warmth and feel lazy without a guilty conscience !!
