Hi everyone. Walking days seem easier than exercising – just one type of movement. And there is always the option of having a coffee. I took enough money for a mug of flat white when I set off but as it turned out I didn’t get to have my coffee. I’ll tell you about that in a moment.
I set off on my walk after putting on a load of washing but leaving the other chores until later. Normally I would have done housework first and made an excuse that there was now no time to possibly consider exercising. How things have changed. I walked down the street and after 15 minutes was at the cafe I planned to go to. It looked busy so I went to the next one which also seemed too busy. I decided to walk a bit further to a nice little cafe that is always quiet. As I headed towards the quiet cafe I passed a man in his 60’s sitting on the nature strip, singing and playing his guitar. I thought about the $4.00 I had in my purse. I knew that if I gave this man my money, then I couldn’t have the coffee. For about 2 seconds I was thinking how I couldn’t possibly give him my coffee money, then I thought, of course I can. I’ll make a coffee when I get home. So I put my coins on his guitar case. He smiled at me and said thankyou very much. Actually, that was better than the flat white.
So I actually completed a 30 minute walk which was a really comfortable length. 15 seems too short and 40 too long. That’s it for now. Must go and make that coffee.
