Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are had to beat.

March 26th - a walk in the park
Red, my walking companion
I love the feeling of fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.
Where I live is considered a mobil home park. So, since we had the first nice day in quite a while I went for a walk with my new friend, Red. Red was a gift for Christmas and this is the first long walk she’s been on. I can tell we are going to be great friends and will be going on many walks together in the future.
It’s not that I can’t walk on my own, but I cannot go for any length of time and needed some help, so the kids decided I needed a friend to help me out.
I walked for about 1/2 hour and really enjoyed being out about. It cleared my head and gave me some much needed exercise. As you can see, nothing much is growing here in northern Ohio. The only sign of spring I saw was a pussy willow tree turning green in back of someone’s home. They are one of the first signs of spring here .
I didn’t see many people out but that is not unusuall. A few neighbors were on their porch and they were conversing with the people on the street. A man was in his driveway working on something and a boy was out bouncing his basketball around. I didn’t see any signs of a hoop. I went as far as the lake to see if any geese were around, It was all quiet there
Fresh air is as good for the mind as for the body. Nature always seems trying to talk to us as if she had some great secret to tell . And so she has.
Back home again
I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think and the hearts that love…I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts.
