January Walks



 I miss my January walks.
 I miss the clouds and the rain and the cold wind as it grabs my face. 
 I miss the sound of my own footsteps.


I miss the towering trees, my friends the trees.
I miss the road before me, ever welcoming my journey.
And the mist, precursor to beloved rain...


When my body is racked with pain, dear husband holds my hand as we walk as one.
I miss our walks in January.
I miss our walks in January.


Winter owns January!
When the temperature drops,
we can no longer walk!


Thank you for coming along with me on my pretend walk.  
When it is 17 degrees outside, all I can do is pretend and
 miss my January walk.


Love,
Lottie

  1. That is too cold for me too.
    Hopefully it will warm up enough
    for you to get outside.

    In the meantime stay warm.

  2. It is that cold in SC. I live in Ohio and it is freezing. I love the snow and winter but not this cold. Stay in and pretend . I hope you aren't in pain. If so feel better.

    1. Thank you Debby! It was 42 degrees today so I was able to take a long walk. Felt better after the walk.

  3. Aww... Sorry to hear you are missing your walks.
    The road and area in which you walk is quite lovely, I can see why you miss it.
    Stay warm and enjoy the indoors for just a little while as this cold weather will only last a short time.

    Joy!
    Debbie
