It was a drop-dead gorgeous day in the Mohawk Valley today. Steven and I felt the right thing to do was to take a long walk, so we did. First I wrote a few post cards. I normally do that on Saturday, but, well, I guess it’s been kind of a lost weekend for me. Don’t judge. Oh, OK, judge if you want, but don’t nag. I won’t listen. Where was I? Ah yes, about to write a Pedestrian Post instead of my usual Wrist to Forehead Sunday.
It was so bright and sunny I put on a hat with a brim and carried my purse, which contains my prescription sunglasses. I put the sunglasses on before we reached the end of the driveway. Before leaving, though, we walked into the backyard and shook our heads over the amount of yard work that needs to be done. The delightful part was that we have some crocuses. I was afraid with the early warm days and late snow we wouldn’t get any. I noticed a few irises coming up as well. Yay!
We walked down the sidewalk positively glorying in the warmth. As we went through Meyers Park, I pointed out buds on some of the trees. How wonderful it will be so see some green finally! It was a comfortable temperature for walking, but I almost felt as if I won’t mind it too much when it does get super hot. Oh well, I suppose I will be true to form and complain about it when it happens, but right now, I feel as if I won’t mind. Does that make any sense to anybody?
After mailing the post cards, we headed toward Main Street then up Herkimer’s Historic Four Corners, one of my favorite spots. We continued up Main then over to the path over what used to be a hydraulic canal. We ended up walking down three stretches of the path, then up Washington and down Court Street to the Historic Four Corners again. We met many people out taking a stroll or hanging out on their porches. We exchanged greetings with all.
I was quite hungry when we got home so started cooking dinner. We opened front and back doors, because I ran the oven. How lovely to air out the house! I only wish I had brought our tablet on the walk so I could have taken some pictures to share. Maybe I’ll look into getting one of them there smart phones; that ought to help pep things up. Then I’ll have a Pepped Up Pedestrian Post. You know how I love alliteration. Happy Sunday, everyone.
