We've been trying to walk most every night. We don't get much further than a mile or two but at least we're moving. Living in the middle of the midwestern cornfields is a tad limited but enjoyable just the same.
Would you like to come along with us and see what we see? You would? I just knew you did!
Here's a look down the Harper Highway as my son calls it. It's a lightly traveled township road next to our house which leads to a small settlement of about a dozen homes called Harper. It's kind of boring but nice, smooth walking.
Another option is alongside the railroad tracks near us. Hubby expecially likes this but it's definitely not my favorite place. Uneven walking surfaces, plus it freaks me out when the train comes by.
Our favorite is a path that leads back into the field behind our house. It runs about a mile and a quarter round trip.
The surface is pretty even and smooth enough for the grandkids stroller plus there's a nice little stream to reward us at the bottom.
The worst part is the climb back up the hill to the house. But wasn't the sunset beautiful tonight?
And who says romance can't blossom on a walk along a country road? I love wildflowers! You can keep your big bouquets of roses but take the time to stop and pick some wildflowers and you've got me.
We found this boulder down by the creek tonight and he decided to carry it back for me to put in one of the flower beds. The thing weighed 50 pounds for pete's sake! Now that's love!
Thanks for joining us!
