This isn't a great picture but this is a tree growing beside the bike trail that had huge blocks of ice still around it. The river and ice flow had gotten up that high.
So when I arrived home I did the unthinkable. (pssst...please don't tell them!) I. snuck. out. without. the. pups. Yep to go for a w-a-l-k. By myself. I know, I know I feel guilty enough....
However here are some of my excuses, ahem, I mean reasons...you might remember that I had some goals in mind for this year. One of them being weight loss. Well, I can't loose weight if my heart rate doesn't go above a snuffle! And let me tell you. My legs and feet are sending me messages of just how out of shape I am, that a glance at my rearview in the mirror couldn't!!! I did walk 2+ miles, got a shower, and started some laundary all in under an hour.
Now that the weather has given the appearance of letting up I have no excuses. I have to get moving.
When the light lasts longer and the snow has melted away, I have a couple of places to take the pups too that they can have a good run and I can walk as fast as I want because they will catch up to me and still sniff to their hearts content.
I think the pups may have caught on. I saw them eyeballing the mud on my shoes... and now Honey Dew is pouting...
Oh well all will be forgiven when they get their treat and their snuggle!
Happy Dogs on Thursday!
