Cindy - Florida - 9:45-10:45 AM

Todays walk got off to a rocky start. I woke up this morning later than usual, around 8:00, with a headache, neck and shoulder ache. I decided that I was going to take the day off. Then the phone rang about 9:00. It was my Creatively Fit teammate, Hayley. Uh-Oh, busted.
Hayley: "What's going on?"
Me: "Huh?"
Hayley: "Where's your post?"
Me: "I'm taking the day off, I don't feel that well."
Hayley then proceeds to tell me about her morning walk and the pictures that she took. She inspired me to get my butt out there!
Thank you Hayley!

So, I took some aspirin and got my walking shoes on. I decided to walk in the neighbor today, rather than around the perimeter of the neighborhood. About 5 minutes into my walk the batteries in my camera died. Tip #5 Make sure batteries in camera are fully charged. I was bummed but I was already out, so I just kept walking. Very few pictures today.

I saw a lot of American flags and was going to try to do a little series. Maybe tomorrow.
I thought this little house looked funny engulfed by the towering trees.

I love the way these trees touched the sky... And that's when my batteries went_____________________

Better luck tomorrow.

Still looking for teammates. We hope you will join!

Love the little house shot!!! I'm so glad you got out the door. Bummer about the batteries...I was thinking that maybe should be a tip...For me, a clear disk is always important as well. I'm proud of you! I'm proud of me! I can't wait for others that I can be proud of...
