wren You'll not see nothing like the mighty wren!
Mr. Wren is back east at a family wedding that I, very sadly, am not able to attend. So the dogs & I are hiking without him. On Friday, I ended the week with a quick climb up the Dutchman’s Way & a jog down the Old Mine Road. This was my most usual after-work hike last summer, and it took an hour to complete. This Friday it took only 45 minutes. I’ve gotten a lot faster!
Yesterday we were out at the crack of dawn at my favorite state mountain park. It’s nice to get out early when the birds are singing and the rest of the world is quiet and the air is still cool. We climbed to the top of the mountain, and I ran all the way down. After I reached to mountain top, I realized that I’d spent the whole climb ruminating on unhappy things, so I made a conscious choice to count my blessings on the way back down.
