Slice of Life #20 Challenge Day 1: Warm Walk

Slice of Life #20 Challenge Day 1: 
Warm Walk 

It reached 45 degrees Fahrenheit this afternoon - practically hot for March in North East Wisconsin. It was one of those wild Midwest days when you see people playing outside in short sleeves, yet snow still blankets the ground. 

Of course I longed to spend my time outside today. 

Somehow, I convinced my nearly twelve-year-old daughter to take a lengthy afternoon walk with me. Donning our winter boots we ventured off the sidewalks and onto the lovliest unpaved path. 

You don't need go far/
to discover hidden charm-/
neighborhood delight.
Following our long walk, my heart seemed lighter; I felt happy. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon.

  1. What a beautiful photograph! We had one of those unseasonably warm days too--only we always have some of those scattered throughout late winter so I supposed it's not really unseasonable? Getting outside always makes my heart feel lighter too.

  2. Isn't it amazing how lighter we feel this time of year with melting snow? It's the time of year Wisconsinites remember why we endure the winters. The idea of new growth, new possibilities, and a new season is blissful! We enjoyed every minute of sunshine and warm in NW WI too!

  3. We all should spend more time outside. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. We have snow on the ground, too, and I also walked outside today, so I feel a bit as though we’re connected this March 1 in our snowy, outdoor worlds. And a haiku is a lovely tribute to being in nature.
