It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good”
― Leslie Bricusse,
As I was so pleased with myself following yesterday’s walk, I decided to walk again today.
This time I found some other steps leading from our road down towards the village. And this time there were not 132 steps to navigate but 154.
So I walked down and found myself in yet another road I had never seen before, then on to the village and a hot chocolate and a scone for lunch, although I was so hot I should really have had a cold drink.
Then back home, this time retracing yesterday’s walk to the village, past the primary school, along two roads and up those 132 steps. I must say this gets easier each day.
A shorter distance today – 2.90 kms and 6.9K steps. I wonder where I’ll go tomorrow.
I’m always thrilled at what one sees when walking that one completely misses when driving. And if I hadn’t been walking to the village instead of driving I wouldn’t have found these roads and would I ever have ventured down these steps.
Later I was picked up by a friend to spend the afternoon at her place, talking but mainly playing a game new to me called Upwords.
It has now become a regular weekly afternoon and I am certainly enjoying this new way of making this elderly brain work.
