I walked up to Herkimer College to vote this afternoon. I counted it as my 34 (or more) minutes for diabetes awareness. Additionally, I took some pictures along the way for a blog post. Who says I can’t multi-task? (OK, I am usually the one to say it.)
I took a picture of these flowers, because they brightened my day.
I ran up this hill just the other day. I like walking up hills, although you can get too much of a good thing.
I walked up the back way, which is not as steep. The road is open to authorized vehicles only, but I think it is OK for pedestrians. And, as regular readers know, I love to enter when it says not to.
I had the idea that Early Voting was in the building right at the top of the back way. I soon found I was wrong.
It had only taken me about 20 minutes to walk thus far, so I was happy to continue my walk.
When I reached the gym, I worried I had overshot my target.
I quickly saw some others signs which told me where to go. While I was taking a picture of this sign, a lady called to me from her car window that I was supposed to go around the back.
There were no lines, no waiting in the gym. When I came out, a couple was trying to take a selfie by the sign. I said that was a good idea; I should do that. The lady offered to take my picture, then asked me to take theirs.
I walked a different way back, by the dormitories. I paused to take a couple more pictures.
It took me just over an hour altogether. The beauty part was that I did not get rained on. It had been raining most of the day and began again shortly after I got home.
I was delighted to have discharged my civic duty for the year, and I encourage all my readers to do the same, if you have not already done so.
