Today was Day 139 of my current walking streak. My total for January is 66.15 kilometers.

Even on these cold days, I look forward to leaving the house for a walk in the fresh air. Some days it is more enjoyable than other days. Currently I walk around noon because it is usually the warmest part of the day. I am already thinking about Spring when I can go earlier in the day.

I carry my camera in case I see something to photograph. I have my phone too but I find that the picture I want is gone before I find my phone camera. Also, when I want to share pictures from my phone, they are upside down or sideways. My camera posts them the right way.

Sometimes I think I would like to listen to a book when I am walking but I haven't figured out how I could do that. I used to listen to music but I find that I prefer to listen to the birds. Today I could hear some blue jays squabbling about something. Often I spend time in prayer. These days there are so many needs. Often remembering one prayer request leads to another.

Today when I was almost home, I had passed 4 kilometers. I wanted to see if I could reach 5 km so I kept going around another block. My total for today is 5.41 km. I find that I no longer have to 'force' myself to leave the house; I actually look forward to it.

I am calmer and have more patience and I think part of it is because I have been walking. This lady and her little dog caught up and passed me. She told me the dog keeps her moving quickly.
