This month I’m participating in 30 Days of Thanks (#30DaysofThanks) by writing a blog post about 30 things I’m thankful for. To join in, go to the link above. The best part is, you don’t need to have a blog or even be on social media to take part in the project; you just need to be thankful. I can’t wait to see how my life might change by spending the 30 days in November giving thanks for things in my life — every single day.
Today I am thankful that the rain let up and Sofi and I were able to take a nice, long afternoon walk. I’m also thankful that the steroid shot that I got last week helped to keep the plantar fasciitis pain at bay. On the walk this afternoon, it felt like it had been a really long time since we’d taken a good walk together. With the time change, working late, and Sofi going to doggy daycare twice last week (where they walk her 1-2 times per session), it had been a little while since we’d gone.
I love taking walks with Sofi because nothing helps me clear my head or manage feelings of stress like taking a walk with her. It gives me time to slow down life’s hectic pace and just enjoy the surroundings. Appreciate the everyday. With that spirit in mind, I decided to take some photos along our 35-minute walk.
Even an everyday path becomes something worth exploring after the rain.
Sofi saw another dog and his owner taking advantage of the break in the weather.
I have a special affinity for vintage/old cars. This one caught my eye.
Sofi got a bit tangled in the leash. Silly girl!
I love this shot, both for the leaves, and for the “action” shown.
Sofi’s favorite places to sniff out the “news” – bushes.
It was so nice to get out of the house, get the blood pumping, and breathe in the fresh air. I’m thankful for today’s walk with Sofi.
