There wasn't any fog/smog over us this morning. The western mountains of our valley were pink-tipped as the sun crept over the eastern mountains. It was a breathtaking sight while I waited with my younger son for his bus to pick him up for preschool.
Later my older son made sure I got out of the house by leaving his lunch on the counter. Off I went to deliver it. I went to my older daughter's school after that to see about a possible afterschool club she could join to help her adjust to the move. I found her bike locked to a sign post a block away from the school. Is she embarrassed by the bike? Is it not cool to ride a bike to school? I looked for a bike rack at the school and didn't see one. Hmmm.
As I was driving home from her school, I saw two deer in someone's front yard. I slowed down and stopped while I saw one nonchalantly jump over the fence, cross the road in front of me, and duck under some trees in another yard. I slowly moved forward and spied the second deer follow after the first in my rearview mirror. I couldn't tell if they were just two does having a stroll or if it was a mama with an older fawn looking for some civilized brunch. Either way, it was fun to see.
I have managed to exercise six days a week for a month. No weight loss to speak of, but I do feel a lot warmer in the mornings. A big thank you to Leslie Sansone for creating a workout video that doesn't kill off those of us who are trying to get back in the exercise habit after a loooong time.
I am very aware of my blessings this morning. I hope you all have a good day.
