Sunshine always makes me happy!

Monday, April 27, 2020

Today was forecast to rain along with the next 3 days that follow. Can you imagine my surprise when I awoke to brilliant sunshine and no clouds?!
IT is gorgeous outside and I have just returned from a 45 minute power walk which I feel is the happiest walk I have had this year although not the longest. I went for almost 3 miles but it is the distance, it is the sunshine and fresh air that felt so good.

Lots of people were out walking so I just had to cross the street if they were coming my way to keep with the safe distancing. I know that is more than 6 feet but farther away can be safer. It didn't stop us from all greeting each other with salutations if "great weather today, hellos and good afternoons".

Everyone seems to be so much more friendly or unafraid to acknowledge you when you pass by which is so nice to see. I think people are grateful to at least see anyone outside as we all acknowledge our need for human camaraderie.

Here's hoping that there will be more sunshine tomorrow.

    It's great that the weather report was wrong and you could get out and do what you love most, Susan. A brisk walk in the spring sunshine--there's nothing better! I took out fur balls out for their walk yesterday morning and was amazed at the loveliness of spring. I met a friend, and we did the social-distancing thing, too, as we briefly exchanged reports on our children and so on. These are weird times, but it can be pretty unifying to know that we're all in this together, and that we all definitely have something in common at the moment.

    Hope you get more beautiful weather that lets you stay active outside! Take care and stay well, my dear!

    The sun came out this afternoon and we went for a 30 minute walk. I agree - it felt so good to get out and get some fresh air.

    Stay safe!!

    How great! emoticon really makes a difference, as I know I enjoyed as well today. We are now getting cloudy and windy. Have rain storms coming. Next 3 days will be grey and rainy and actually one storm is suppose to be quite bad. I'm hoping not.

    Again glad to know you were able to get out. Better days are coming. Stay safe.
