Home from the Winter Storm

I have been gone a week. Did anyone miss me?

I spent 7 days in Oregon City with my bro and sil while he had surgery. We are happy to report he is doing very well.

While I was there, it SNOWED. Usually I really don't enjoy snow, but this week I ventured out to walk with Ju and her friend on the golf course every day and we weren't going to let a few inches of snow deter us.

We woke up Tuesday morning to this scene in the front of the house--


and this one in the back--


The trail along the creek was beautiful.
I returned home yesterday and it seems like I never left, except that I have committed to walking every day possible. My goal is 5 days a week, 4 miles a day. Now that I've put it in writing in a public forum, I have all of you to hold me accountable.
This afternoon, J and I walked to the store for a few groceries. Vermont to Jefferson to Western. Four miles.

Linda, you are such a trim and athletic woman! Imagine STARTING an exercise program with a four mile walk! You just blow me away.
