Spring thyme

One of my favorite things to do when the weather gets warm is go out on the mountain with my sketch book and draw all the new stuff growing.  Here's the thyme that grows wild in my favorite spot to sit.***

That WAS one of my favorite things to do in the warm weather until I discovered my new favorite thing.  Now the new favorite is so totally awesome that everything else I do in my day is just filler, a time killer, until I can do my new favorite thing.

And what is this new thing?  Exercise.  I know.  I know. You've watched me go down this road before.  Like that time that I tried to get into running.  Remember that?  Yeah, that lasted about 3 days.  All I got out of that failed attempt was a new pair of running shoes.  The shoes aren't so new any more but I don't care.  I put those puppies on in the morning and head out the door, whistling a happy tune because I GET to go exercise.  

So what's changed?  My exercise routine now has me piling one of my dogs in the car and heading to the sea.  We do an hour long walk/jog/speed walk/stroll/saunter on the bike path until we decide to go off road hitting the beach.  What's there NOT to like, whether you're into exercise or not, about being at the sea on a warm spring day with your dog?! Duh.

The sea is 5 minutes from my house, I have two hyper dogs that need to get off the mountain sometimes, and I need to move more of my body than my hands.  Let's just not wonder why it's taken me 7 years to come up with this plan.  Please?

***By the way, I wasn't drunk when I did that sketch, I like to draw with my left hand.  It makes me pay closer attention.
