Okay, so, the list is probably endless. I know. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous, so last night I had a plan when I left work to get home, drop my stuff and go for a walk.
This is something I don’t do often, even though I should. When we were living in our old apartment and I was working my old job, I would walk home from work every night, so that was my walk, my time to unwind. As we now live downtown but work in midtown, the only way I can walk home is if I have two hours to kill. We live in a great part of the city with water only minutes away, as perfect for an evening walk as it is for a morning run.
Woody wasn’t home yet so I had some time to kill before we’d eat dinner, so by 7:15 I was out the front door of our building. I came upon a wedding reception in high gear, kids running through a fountain, men fishing, ferries speeding through the harbor, tourists taking pictures, commuters on their way home, couples enjoying a beautiful night together, the sun setting, and unfortunately, a few people finding their spot to spend the night. This walk made me thankful for the beautiful evening, and reminded me how lucky I am to live in this historic neighborhood and to have all that I have. It was a refreshing way to start the week.
