Sunday walk in the woods

The humidity today felt as thick as a wool blanket with sporadic showers all day. The pressure changed which made breathing more of a challenge. Thunderstorms are moving in later, but hopefully it won't be another sleepless night.

My niece came over this evening to walk with us. We'd walked earlier in the day but didn't get enought to meet our daily goals so and evening stroll resonated with us all.

It was a pleasant experience. She's getting serious in her relationship but her boyfriend is a city boy and not really interested in living where he can hear rooster crow in the mornings. I dread the day when she moves away.

At the end or our walk after getting the chickens in their pen for the evening, I had to snap a picture of our camelias. A friend gave us this bush last year and as soon as the weather warmed a little, thick buds appeared. A few days ago, they did their work.

Jilda blogged about them a few days ago, but I thought it would be a shame if I didn't share a picture and mention how much we enjoy them.

I hope you all have a great week.



  1. Walking is so important, we were doing well in Florida, but when we are home other stuff gets in the way. We admire you guys and you dedication to the # of steps, good stuff.
    Love that picture,

  2. It's always difficult to see the kids growing up and moving away but there's no other way. It's even harder when they are your own kids.

    Your Camellia looks so pretty.
    Have a great day

  3. What a soft, delicate flower. You will enjoy that bush for years to come. Nice gift.

  4. Like a Hallmark Movie. You know the city boy rarely gets the girl until he turns into a country boy.
    Beautiful flower. Your getting really good at the photography.
