Walking to Get Healthy

Walking is one of my favorite things to do because (1) I’m getting some exercise in and (2) being outdoors does wonders for my soul and (3) I learn quite a bit of history about my city and surrounding cities when I stop to read the plaques/signs posted (4) I find myself meeting new people.

The weather here n Florida can be so unpredictable and lately all it’s done is rain just about every day. Not today though so I decided to take advantage of it even though it was hot as hell outside. The real feel was around 91 I believe. Staying hydrated was very, very important and so I brought my water bottle with me filled with water and ice.

I brought a 100 calorie snack by Emerald, that has almonds, dried cranberries, and cashews to eat on my walk.

Baby Bird

About a week ago I kept hearing birds outside chirping more than usual and noticed what appeared to be a bird on the ground. I thought maybe it was sick or something and decided to go check. Turns out it was a baby bird (fledgling) which I left alone considering it wasn’t injured. Momma and daddy were close by.

I thought it was pretty cool seeing this right outside my front door. I kept a close eye out as best I could since cats like to visit my yard. There’s something peaceful about seeing nature in action. I’m not sure what type of bird this is.

(After coming home from an outing, I checked back to see if him or her was still there and it wasn’t. Hopefully it went about safely to do what it was needing (learning) to do; fly and be independent.

Not So Random Pictures!

I so love capturing moments of my family, among other things. This morning I came across so many photos that are on our desk top that I need to transfer over. I should seriously be doing some type of backup as well.

Part of my blogs name is – Now Healing/Healed. I want others to see that you can have a life after having endured some horrible things and that you can heal from it. No, that doesn’t mean the scars don’t remain, it just means that you’ve taken the steps necessary to be – Happy!

Yes, we are a family that does Halloween.
