Hikes and Walks and All Things Good

So far, March has been quite kind to us.  The skies have been blue.  The temperatures have moderated a bit.  I kinda like the month of March.  There is always much for which to be thankful.  Here are five things that stood out to me when I was thinking about what I could write about for Friday Fave Fives (follow the link to join!).

1. and 2.  The reason I am late posting my Fave Fives is because we took TWO walks today.  Our daughters both wanted to get out for a good long walk, but their schedules didn't mesh.  So we walked with one (and her dog), took a coffee break with our new friends (that's the #2 fave), then took another longer walk with our other daughter and her dog.

3.  A fun hike.  On Saturday, we all jumped in our cars and did a family hike at a local state reserve Blackhand Gorge.  It was a wonderful warm day. And there were lots of people out on the trails.  It was so much fun to be out on the trails!

4.  We ordered blinds for most of the windows in our new home.  This week they arrived and were installed.

5. The Professor got an all clear from his doctor for something that had been causing a lot of pain in his neck and shoulders.  Physical therapy has worked wonders, and he is so much better that the doctor doesn't need to see him again unless the pain returns.  Good news!

When you live in the Midwest, those “blue skies, smilin’ at me” come fairly often. We love them. The hikes sound great. Such good news for the Prof. Mary

Any week that includes walks, hikes and time with family and friends is a good one. So glad you are finding so much to love in Ohio!

YAY For a good hike at a great spot and for long walks with family. I'm's been bitter cold here because of the March winds of the north east. BRRRR today's high?? only 30. But the sky is blue and the sun is shining so I'll bundle up and walk before dinner. Tomorrow I'm hiking a new to me trail and we are gonna be COLD if we don't layer up. We'll need microspikes or stabilicers too as most the trail to the north where i'm going will still be pretty icy.

LOVE your faves.

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

Wonderful times outside in winter with your loved ones. Must add a new dimension of fun with a dog. Great news for the Professor. Happy to read this. Are you turning as old as me this year or are you a year younger? :)

Hiking sounds wonderful! It was brutally cold here over the weekend but it’s been so much warmer this week! I’m glad your hubby is feeling better. Being in pain is no fun.
