I really am grateful for this side gig of mine sometimes, this dog sitting. We've had a wild swing of weather in the few days I've been here- wet, sunny, cold, warm. I know I wouldn't have experienced it like I have if I wasn't walkin' the pups every day. Last night was cold, and then this morning- it was 10 degrees warmer than when I went to bed!
I know I don't spend as much time outside as I'd like, and I try to make up for it with windows, but really being outside is just different. The neighbor's forsythia is blooming, and I probably wouldn't have noticed if the dogs hadn't become inordinately interested in their own front step today. Somebody around the corner has the most beautiful, deeply yellow crocus patch. Hyacinth is appearing. Spring is finally starting to unfold, and I absolutely would be missing all this. My own little patch of garden is still to cold to do anything but shiver at me.
Exercise-wise, it's still daily walks. Work has me busy, and so does driving to and from puppy pee breaks. However, my hips continue to loosen which is WONDERFUL! My running buddy and I had a yoga class planned for later in the week that got canceled, so I'll have to come up with something else. That's my day off, so there will be some time.
But ahhh, Spring is finally beginning!
