Choosing to Walk

Going grocery shopping today, I had the choice of taking the car or going on foot. The choice was less about distance and more about temperature. However, weighing all things, exercise was chosen over comfort. Also, it was good to get outside and breathe in the air. It might seem a rather pedestrian moment, but it was still Today’s Perfect Moment.

I’ve been working hard at my fitness, but most of that has been indoors. I haven’t taken as many opportunities as I should have to get outside. The weather hasn’t been nearly as cold as it could be, but I have not taken advantage of it.

On a positive note, we arrived at the store and were not greeted by a line of any kind. However, when we left, we noticed a rather healthy line waiting to enter. It hadn’t been too crowded in the store and perhaps that is because there was a good amount of caution when deciding how many people to let in.

I also got the chance to see the work they have mostly completed on the Viva Blue bus line. Under normal conditions, I would be taking the bus to work, but thanks to Covid 19 I am working from home and not doing the commute. I can’t say I miss it, but it is nice to see the upgrades along the route.

I made it back in time to watch the hockey game, which was quite good. I also had pizza for dinner–this is starting to sound like I am bragging. I had better end this post right now.

    Do you follow the Leafs… big win in Calgary last night 😊 I believe your weather has been very mild. Ours, too, only not as hot as usual, for Australia.

      I do indeed follow the Leafs–maybe the closes thing I have to religion.
      Our weather has been mild. I wouldn’t even call it winter–and if I could go and meet people we would probably spend a big part of the conversation talking about it and commenting about it–because that’s how people are.
      I hope you are enjoying summer. Thanks for the comments.
      Go Leafs Go!!

        We are a Jets family…. lost, very sadly, in the last 30 seconds, to the Oilers. My partner played ice hockey for Australia in the World Championships for 6 years… but is originally from Winnipeg 😊

        I was wondering why you were so well versed. What does your partner think of the trade?
        Also, I think I jinxed myself. They are now calling for ten centimetres of snow…and it has already started.

        He thinks that time will tell, but that Line had very unique talents and Dubois is more of an all rounder. He’s feeling positive. I feel like Line scores every second goal when I’m watching, so I’m dubious but hopeful 😊
