I allowed myself four hours for a walk today. I went at 12 and was back by 4. I was well wrapped up because it was cold. Furry hood to keep my head warm. The intention wasn't to do more miles, it was to meander, to stop and take in the winter scenery. I dawdled, I gazed, and I listened.
I took a different path and sloshed through the mud. I walked with my legs far apart as I straddled the mud, trying to get a bit of grip on the tufts of grass on each side. I should have taken my walking pole with me but I forgot.
On the side of the track I noticed a bundle of new wire. A bit like fence wire but not so thick. I picked it up and managed to scrunch it up and get it into a smallish plastic bag. That will come in useful I thought. On the way home I remembered that my friend Angela had said to me once she was looking for some wire to make an animal figure. She wants to grow a bush inside it and trim it to the shape as it grows. I dropped off the wire at her house, she was chuffed.
I found four black bin bags of fly tipping. Assorted rubbish inside. I had gloves on so I looked through it. Struck lucky, two pieces of packaging, bubble wrap bags, with a name and address on. I photographed what I found.
I've made a big pan of stew tonight. I had a couple of spicy bean burgers which were too hot for me so I put them in the stew. The whole stew was then spicy, so I put a spoon of sugar in it. That's better
As Christmas Day comes to a close I look forward to the days getting longer and the start of a new year. Maybe I will spend less time working on the computer, maybe I will concentrate on doing more of what makes me happy.
Thanks for sticking with me. Those who don't like what I put on my blog, it's ok to drop out. I have gained quite a few like minded friends, some on here, and a lot on the yoootooob channel. Welcome if you are new.
