And hello Post #1,000 on this WordPress blog.
Today was another beautiful Fall day and it kicked off the month of October.
We were so lucky to enjoy a perfect weekend-weather day, and once again I was eager to get on my way and down to the Park to walk, then it was an afternoon of pulling weeds and taming bushes with “whiskers” or unruly branches. Sadly, that yardwork was long overdue, and the weather was absolutely perfect to do anything outside, and to enjoy the sunshine.
Meanwhile, Fall has really permeated the Park!!
Between the crumpled-up leaves on the perimeter path and hints of color beginning to infiltrate so many of the trees, it appears that Fall finally means business.
Every time I visit Council Point Park there seem to be more trees sporting shades of red, orange and yellow, and it is very picturesque looking.
My favorite season of the month is Fall, even though I know by the end of October the days will be so much shorter that long walks at the Park will have to be relegated to the weekends, so I hope the good weather will continue each weekend as we progress through the month of October.
In the meantime, I will make the most of each sunny day and keep racking up the miles toward my goal I am now at 720 miles walked for the calendar year 2017, with 35 miles left to meet my goal.
And, racking up the miles with my feet is one thing, but I’ve also racked up the posts on my blog, so that today is the 1,000th post since I began this blog on February 11, 2013. That is a monumental feat for me.
Onward and upward to my goal.
I’ll leave you with this quote:
