Complaints from the "peanut gallery"




Walking daily with my camera, I have taken a number of picture of beautiful leaves. The trees are still very green, but leaves are falling at a fast rate, and those that hit the ground are sometimes beautiful - such as this one.



Can you tell I am sooo ready for fall?



My walk was less than perfect at its start today ... complaints from the peanut gallery interferred. I needed to get up early and be out the door by 7:30 am to fit a walk into my already packed day. So I set the alarm for 6:00 am thinking that I would be ready to walk by 7:30 (I am not really a morning person so 90 minutes to get all the parts of my body moving in a coordinated fashion seemed appropriate).

Once out the door little complaints were being sent from my legs, my ankles, my feet, my thighs, cycling back around again to my legs ... and so on, messages that said "too early, what are you thinking, we work better at 9:30 or so, go back in the house until 9:30, too early, too early" ... messages for the first 45 minutes of my walk. I just kept moving and ignoring. I was out for my walk, the day was beautiful and cool, and every one of my body parts just need to get their act together. At least, that is the message my mind kept sending to my legs, ankles and feet. At the 45 minute mark (8:15-ish) in the walk, I guess all the little complainers gave up, because then it was smooth sailing ... for the last 20 minutes.

And to reward myself, today was knitting group day! Another magnificent morning, with magnificent friends, sharing a magnificent hobby. My second reward was getting my two grand dogs, Meathead and Grimace, in the afternoon.
