Beautiful Day

Today was sunny and not too cold. Robert and I took the dog for his usual Saturday morning two-hour walk to a local park near us with a lake. Usually we just walk along pastures full of sheep, but today there was one full of cows, and the cows (mostly bulls) loved coming up to the fence to have their ears scratched. We brought some bread and fed the ducks. The swans were eating out of our hands.

For some reason, our dog Mercury decided that the cows were a threat and growled menacingly at them, so most of them eventually moved away from the fence. He wanted to jump into the lake after the ducks but fortunately, he restrained himself.

Later in the day, Robert and I went for a bike ride. There were a lot of bugs, but other than that, it was a beautiful ride. We rode along a park path full of trees. Occassionally, we would see squirrels dashing up trees and leaping from one tree to another.

Basically, we enjoyed a lovely day and got some exercise in that was fun and pleasant enough that it didn't really feel like exercise at all.

What did you do today? What are you doing to incorporate FUN exercise into your life?


  1. I actually did JUGGLE THIS WEEKEND all in the name of fitness and getting myself moving.

    Im so ... not great yet that there was lottsa chasing the rolled up socks and lots of LAUGHING (both me and my daughter AT me. you'll have that :)).


  2. I love the idea of juggling! My kids would really be laughing to watch me try to juggle!


Sorry about the word verification. I turned it off and started getting tons of SPAM, so I had to turn it back on again.
