Let’s take a walk

I was a few thousand steps behind after I got home for work, so it was time to change clothes and have some supper.  There was a nice light rain coming down when I finished up with supper.  I put on my hat, on went a good rain proof coat and I grabbed an umbrella.


I got a couple blocks from home and the light rain decided to come down at a steady pace.  It wasn’t hard; just a good soaking rain.  Light traffic, no barking dogs and no yelling kids.  Everyone was all buttoned up inside except some nut out for a walk.


We get a little further down the course and you can smell the smoke from a wood fire that someone decided to have.  Others must have thought it was a good idea because there some other houses that decided that a fire on a day like today was a good idea.  The fireood smoke smelled kinda good as it drifted on the wet air.  Maybe it’s just me but I kinda like that smell.


I also noted that my mini umbrella was a bit worse for wear since one of the arms was broken.  It still kept the rain off but that’s one umbrella that is going to meet the recycle gods and be replaced with a new one.  It doesn’t matter.  It was a nice quiet night for a walk other than listening to the cars go by as Moms and Dads were going home.


So my Fitbit had done it’s little celebration party on my wrist and my shoes were wet from the rain.  It was time to head on home for some dry clothes and dry socks.


Oh yeh.  I had baked some pecan bars after work tonight, so there was a little treat for me when I got home.  I’ll have to take these things in tomorrow.  They’re extremely addictive.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

  1. I have a fitbit. I used to blow the thing up, but now I have a bum knee I don’t do as well. Still get in more steps than most people with good knees 🙂 I’m glad you got some rain dear.

    1. Oh, I have such a naughty mind after reading your comment. I should really put some thought into thinking about maybe going to confession some day.


      1. LOLOL you are hopeless !! Just be careful if you do go to confession, there are rumors out there about the priests . Who knows what they are doing behind that screen while you are confessing your most intimate thoughts, words, and deeds !!

      2. Nah, I had to step foot in the church over the past year since my granddaughter goes to Catholic school and the roof didn’t fall down on me, so it surely would not fall down on you, you innocent hooligan you 😉

  2. What a nice walk!
    You know, that fire smell and the quiet, is a lot of the reason I love the rain! Everyone else goes inside; theres no-one mowing lawns or chopping down trees; no-one walking or talking … for some reason, no-one wants to get wet 🙂 Love it!

    But theres none of those glorious looking bars waiting for me … I may have to remedy that 😉

      1. Eat small portions , no snacking and no carbohydrates at night. It’s hard I’m not losing the weight I want to lose. It’s harder when it’s cold. You eat more.
