This is a bit off subject as it's not fiber related.....yet in a way it is. Those of us who'd rather stitch 24-7....somewhere in the back of our minds realize all that sitting may not be good for our health!
"The husband" took up daily walking about 14 years ago.....and after MUCH nagging....I began about 9 years ago. Don't get me wrong....I still do not like it, but I do it. Our mountain roads are steep....so we get a lot of cardiovascular activity since we make a 1,000 foot elevation change 4 times in our 70-85 minute walk.Summer is in full swing here and black berry bushes are taking over. Actually, it's a bit worrisome since there's little if any traffic where we walk and parts are quite isolated. So what?....... you might ask......Well.....because of the black bears who like these berries!
This section is so rarely used that it's becoming overgrown....makes me wonder what's lurking on either side!
Our rescue black lab, like all labs is always hungry and will eat just about anything. I've been giving her carrot slices as a treat, rather than dog biscuits....healthier and less calories. Even dogs have to worry about calories! (or their owners do.)
So...here's Sooty always trying to munch on the low hanging blackberries (or red...she doesn't care if they are ripe!) as we walk.
Sometimes a walk is just the thing to give you time to reflect on your projects.......passive designing I call it.
