Let's Get Physical!

Sunday morning I rolled out of bed slowly. My arms and back were achy from the kayaking and swimming I had done on Saturday. I hobbled down to the kitchen to have my morning cup of coffee which my husband lovingly prepares for me each morning. I thought about the agenda of my day - lazy, lazier and laziest of activities loomed ahead for me. No company was scheduled to come up to the camp so it looked like I might be spending my day laying in the hammock reading Jodi Piccoult's 'Change of Heart.' Nice.

It was at this point I noticed my husband pouring over his map. "Whatcha doing?" I asked as I walked by on my way to grab a pillow and blanket for the hammock. I wanted to be comfortable in case I got exhausted from reading and swinging in the hammock. A nap would be in order.

"I think we should do something physical today. The key to longevity is staying in good physical condition. I am planning a hike for us today."

Oh.

"Does that sound good to you? Did you have any other plans for today?"

"No, not really." I tried to hide the pillow behind my back. I can easily fall into slug mode so I am grateful that I have a husband who is energetic and keeps me moving. I ran upstairs, got my sneakers and I didn't even turn to look back at the hammock as we climbed into the car to head out for a day of adventuring.The time for living, moving, exploring is NOW - and I enjoyed hiking, laughing, and getting physical ! If I had stayed in that hammock, I wouldn't have seen any of the following sights. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did! Get Physical!

Beautiful sights, imagine that was a wonderful hike! Maybe you found a bit of time later to cuddle up and read? :-)

Oh those sights were so much nicer than lying in a hammock!

A virtual hike! Just what a needed today to motivate me as am I getting ready for a morning strolling through the Farmer's Market! I hope you had some quality time with your hammock later.

sounds like a lot of fun, though I could use a hammock right now. Hopefully you found time later in the day to cozy up in the hammock.

Wow. That looks like a beautiful place. You can always do the hammock tomorrow. There's always a tomorrow. (Well, hopefully!)

Oh! A snapping turtle. You would never have seen that from your hammock.

Deb: What great adventures you had and beautiful scenery. I love it when my boyfriend, Gary, shows up on his Honda Goldwing and we just go for a ride. I never know what I am going to see or where we will end up but the fun and laughs are always on the agenda. Have a great day and weekend!

Wow, this was exactly what I needed to hear today. The hammock (or cozy chair) always seems to call my name. I wish there was someone around to motivate me like that...but I suppose I'll have to motivate myself.

Beautiful photos. I'm glad you were there to capture them, and that you shared them.

Thanks for stopping by my place, and I'm very glad to have found yours.

What a beautiful hike you got. And I loved your commentary on it. Did you get to sneak a little nap when it was over? No matter, it was still a beautiful day as evidenced by your pictures.

Beverly said...

Wow, you did get physical. And, such beautiful sights you saw. I am glad you shared them with us.

My husband is always busy with something, too. He is the greatest.

Marg said...

Who wouldn't be up to a exercise program like that?
It's great to share it with your mate.
Way to go...
Great pictures. I like that..
The pictures speak for themselves.
