A Long “Weigh”to Go

The allure of the water is deceiving. You figure you are at the ocean, bay or whatever. What do you forget about?

POLLEN.

I have been doing longer walks with Kasia trying to burn up the calories. Now the problem is I have a pocket full of Kleenex I have to deal with while handling Kasia and her paraphernalia.

Sure, the flowers are a beautiful sight, and I always appreciate the view of them after the snow of winter.

I try to be good to my body with as much holistic medicine as I can get ahold of during allergy season. I figure that to throw chemicals down my throat isn’t really the relief I am looking for: as a matter of fact, I feel it is an invitation for y0ur body to start trouble where it currently may not have trouble. While I am doing the calorie counting, I feel more in tune with my body than I have in the past couple of years. So, for example, when I am congested, I use a saline wash to clean my nose out. That simple act puts the YOU in user friendly.

Well, speaking of walks, it’s time for my buddy/training partner, Kasia, and I to go and get some fresh air in our lungs and hang out together. We’ll hopefully enjoy it and come back worn out.

Waiting for More Indian Summer

Not that I am a fan of summer, but I am so delighted by the lower temperatures, that I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. By that, I mean the return of Indian summer.

Our temperatures have dropped to a high of 72, and last night we actually got into the 50’s,which qualifies as great sleeping weather.Even though I was up for a few hours thanks to my current medication,well,when I went to back to bed,I had no trouble falling back to sleep.

Normally we would be out getting our mums, but with my bum leg, I am hoping that we get out this or next weekend to catch up and buy flowers and pumpkins.There is something about autumn for me that just renews the spirits, even though technically everything is busy getting ready for the sleep of winter.I seem to thrive when I get to put on longer capris and jeans and even with a sweater!

The pups will be getting out more so they’ll be happy, too, because cooler weather is great walking weather, especially for Zush.

It can’t come quick enough.
