breaking the circle cycle

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

The weather man doesnt always get things right, and in this case, I am glad.
fell asleep last night to the sound of rain, woke up with no plans to go walking.
But after being up an hour, having had my coffee and cereal, I decided to just go, take a chance.
Not only did it NOT rain, but it was beautiful in the park.
I could have sworn that weatherman said rain.
I walked my regular hour.
But today I veered off the track and did a lap around the cemetery road, which is a pretty steep hill up and down.
The flowers everyone put out for their loved ones made me happy, and a little sad.
As, I couldnt find the right thing I wanted for my brothers grave.
So, when I went to visit on Monday, it was bare.
His wife and kids never go there, which it isnt HER fault, she has a lot of health issues and can no longer drive.
The daughter doesnt live close by and the son, I dont know what his reason is.
But its ok, because I am going Friday to pick out jus the right item.
Regular run of the mill flowers just dont appeal to me, and I dislike the styrofoam fakes that you buy along the road at sales.
So, I am going in search of something that stands out.
I dont know why no one else in the family decorated.
So anyway, I veered off the track again.
I added some apps to keep track of my time, distance, etc, and my little map looked so funny, cause I was just walking circles.
Gonna start adding some more roads and hills.

Got my walk in and going to get in a good strength workout later today.
Trying, T R Y I N G to stick to my calories today.

Hope everyone else is having a good day.

    What a sweet note, and thank you for caring about decorating your brother's gravesite. Tomorrow is Steve's mom's birthday, and we are all going out to the cemetery to visit the family plot where she, Steve's dad, and other family members are buried. She would have been 97 tomorrow. We still miss her, but we're glad that she and J.T. are together again.
