Day 2

Yesterday was a great day.  It was a teacher institute day and each year for this county institute it is the one day out of the teaching year we are released earlier than usual.  So with the extra time I was able to take my dog for a walk in pure daylight. Normally, if I even make it home before dark, it is a race to start the walk before the sun is just a glimmer in the horizon.  Yesterday, the sun was out! It was balmy … 34 degrees, and there was no wind! I hit the jackpot. Although I was pretty much bundled up from head to toe, my face was able draw in the rays of sunshine, an extra precious gift, that is being handed out very sparingly so far in 2019.  It was amazing to receive this warm, golden gift on my cheeks. As it warmed them up, it also warmed up my whole insides. I could feel myself being replenished by the second with vitamin D. It might sound crazy, but that 45 minutes of walking in the sun, my half empty self from the many gray days felt revitalized.  I was more than half full, I was spilling over … sunshine and vitamin D, amazing what it can do to one’s whole self. My energy and smile were back and I enjoyed every moment of this warm and balmy walk on this windless, 34 degree day with my dog.

  1. I love this line : “…my half empty self from the many gray days felt revitalize.” You craft your setting and emotion seamlessly. I can feel the joy, the sun and your mindset just from your words. Thank you for sharing.

  2. The anticipation of spring is part of the joy of spring. I can see you walking a dog as the sun sets. Balmy 34 degrees is something I can relate to in the northeast.
