Fun Monday - Walk with me...

Fun Monday today is being hosted over at "The Lurchers". She wanted to come along with us on our favorite walk. Unfortunately, as seems to be the case with me lately, I didn't find out what the theme was until it was ALMOST too I'm limited on my photos.

I actually have "two" favorite walk spots. My favorite of late is the walk I've been taking with Candid Mama (also known as Rose now in the blogospere) almost daily. We start off at mama's house, heading down the LONG driveway that many mistake for a road:

We then take a long walk around the neighborhood, and just last week we were commenting on how beautiful the trees along the way are this year. But alas, neither of us had our cameras with us, as we are walking for exercise, and then this weekend it's actually been a bit cold and rainy, so we weren't able to take our walks.

But my favorite part about the walk isn't exactly "where" we walk, it's the fact that mom and I have 30 minutes or so to ourselves every day. We chat about work (or my lack of it), about good things, bad things, funny and silly things, and sometimes "I'm so mad" things. All the while getting our blood pumping and our hearts beating faster. It's become the favorite part of my days.

But, if you want photos, I'll share some of my OTHER favorite walk. This one is one I take with Shopaholic now and again, right by the Merrimack River in my town. I really enjoy this walk, not only for the company (which is excellent) but also because we are really lucky to have such a great place to walk so close to home...don't you think?
By the way, all this talk about "Twittering" going on around the blogosphere reminded me that I signed up for Twitter months ago, and then never did anything with it. So, I've revived my account. Do you Twitter? Look me up if you do, I'm "CandidK" over there, or you can just click over on the left sidebar of my blog to follow me.
Well, I'm going back to my job searching. Have a great Monday everyone!

Hey, I'm job searching, too! Good luck, I haven't had any yet (though I'm not too sad, honestly!) Thanks for the pictures.

I walk with a bloggy friend everyday in our neighborhoods. Your walks look great. I love to walk and talk makes the minutes and the miles go quicker! Enjoy...

The neighborhood walk sounds great - especially since it gives you a chance to hang out and chat.

Rose said...

Love your pictures, and thanks for making my walks enjoyable.
Love Candidmama

Good that you have a walking buddy. Excellent time to get some exercise and solve problems of the world.
Good luck on the job search.

A nice reminder that it's not always about where you walk, but whom you're with.

I used to do the Twitter thing, but haven't in a while. Maybe I'll mess with it again...

Rebecca said...

Hehe, I signed up for Twitter a few months back, then didn't do anything with it. I still get emails occaisionally when people I know sign up.

And I love that you get to take a walk with your Mom everyday! I wish I could, but with our schedules it just doesn't work out. However, my Mom does drive past my work everyday, so if I'm not there she will always call me to find out what's wrong. I like that.

I like those pictures, you got a really great shot of the perfect blue sky and pretty white clouds, I really like that one!

(Note to self: stop over-using the words "really" and "like")

I'm happy you're twittering now. :)

I bet it is great walking with your mom everyday. :)

That other walk looks great too!

Karina said...

Thefoodsnob, job searching is a pain in the ass, isn't it? Sigh...I would enjoy unemployment much more if I didn't have to worry about the mortgage in the coming months, but you know's not all bad! ;-)

greyhound, thanks!

ellenb, that's to true, talking makes the walking so much easier and fun.

karmyn, the chatting is the best part, the health benefits are a bonus. ;-)

Thanks mama, I feel the same way!

aoj, thanks, and yes, it is nice.

janet, sigh...job hunting...sigh...good luck with yours!

iamwhoiam, well put...yes.

faye, thanks!

swampangel, so true. And yes, do twitter again, because I need someone to feed my new addiction to getting alerts on my phone! ;-)

frigga, really, like...why? ;-) But seriously, it's nice when mom checks up on you, isn't it?

lisa, yes, I was happy to find you on twitter. and yes, mom walks are the best.
