Happy Friday Blessings!

*Yes I know it's Saturday but I didn't when I posted this lol*

This week has been a good one with warm temps, not fall-like at all.  Our granddaughter was has been here the last few days so that always makes our week that much more full of joy and laughter. She is sick from a flu shot but I think she is beginning to turn the corner to wellness.

My husband and Navy son have been working hard at our new station and are exhausted from a long day but always bring a smile home to share with the rest of the family. I have been able to get a few hikes in (before baby came over) and as usual been rewarded with the most beautiful skies and landscapes.  The last hike I took I saw 2-3 deer by a stream eating, up on the bank. I was across the roadway and did not have my camera so no picture to share but take my word for it, they were beautiful.

I have been getting into hiking more and road running less, I really like the way it makes me feel so strong.  We have a place here called Cathedral Hills, it's a trail system, and it is just beautiful to hike and is only about 10 minutes or less from where I live.  It has about 10 miles of trails, anything from easy to hard and so there is something for everyone. Next time I go I will take my camera along and get some shots to share with you.

Living in Southern Oregon is such a blessing, we have so much beauty to revel in, it amazes me. The best part is, it's right outside my front door.  Well that is about it for this week, enjoy your weekend and be blessed.

*Obviously, I'm a day behind..oops*

"Limitations only exist if you let them"

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.

    I know you are limited on running, so hiking is an excellent alternative. It will build up those muscles. We have trails just outside of town and my wife and I need to hit them more often.


I'm so happy you stopped by...can't wait to hear all you've got to say! Blessings and hugs!
