Like any other season, winter can be fun. Today, was sunny and with the wind now past us, sidewalks cleared, it was a day for walking. Walking like everything else, is better when shared.
Walking makes you hungry, and the food always tastes better when you've earned it, by exercising, and taking in the cool air. I wouldn't mind this routine every day, but once a week in the winter would be fine, if it were as nice as today. There aren't too many days when I find winter so agreeable. It was great! Conversation made the walk zip by and lunch, in one of our favorite places, was fabulous. I chose a cup of beef barley soup with buttered homemade bread, spinach tomato quiche, sugarless tea and topped it off with a small piece of carrot cake. The atmosphere is quaint, and each small table is set with cottons of baby flowers and dainty linens. Ahhh! the soft touch.
We went shopping after lunch and I never expected to find just the right wall picture, black framed, wheat, with golden hues with a white mat to match my dinning/entertainment room and, at a going out of business price. What a find, what a day, all around.
You can only experience happiness if you open your heart to receive it. Make your own fun. Some of my best days are found during the winter, unexpectedly!!! Especially, when your with the company of friends to warm your heart. So get out there, maybe there is a surprise waiting for you, too.
