I know why Bears want to hibernate :)

Howdee all,

It was cold and blustery yesterday….Jeff and I were comfy cozy inside..

We both knew that we should exercise..after all we both want to loose a few pounds, and we cant very well lose it while sitting around.

We should go walking…I said..Yes..we should he said..

I don’t really want to I said…neither do I he said…

If I weigh myself and I lost weight he said..I wont feel like I need to walk.

Ok…I said..looking for any excuse not to go out into the cold.

Jeff weighed himself..nope..the scale told him we should walk.

So, we put on our many layers and headed out for a walk.

Neither of us wanting to go…

I can understand why Bears hibernate..

Its too darn cold to want to do anything ….wouldn’t it be more logical to do what a bear does?

Gorge ourselves on everything yummy and fattening…

Then curl up and nap the winter away… am not a bear..

  1. haha, you a funny sicksta. Loved your walk and I feel the same way about the cold. Hurry up on your walk, I want to see the rest of it.

  2. Dawn, at least your fingers weren't too cold to take some nice pics. I particularly like the one showing the single figure on the trail - very simple but beautiful.

  3. You sure are a slow walker. How many pounds is he walking off? ;)

    I have a hard time dragging myself out into the cold, but then always enjoy myself once there.

  4. I feel the same way, and it's not really even that cold yet! You should be here in January! But I'm the same way, having to force myself to go outside. Usually once I do it's not that bad.

    Glad you brought your camera along. It helps to make the walk more interesting.

  5. Oh man, that's one thing I definitely miss about living in New England... all the old stone walls! All through my hometown in Connecticut were miles and miles of stone walls.. Everywhere! Thanks for the nostalgia!

  6. I got a kick out of reading about you and your husband talking yourselves into going outside for a walk. I do that too. And, just like you, I am happy that I went on the walk.

    I really love the photo of the stone wall with the yellow in the trees. You have a great eye.

  7. You did a lot of walking on this one.

  8. What a terrific way to see the country, and I'm enjoying the travel journal. If You ever come up to Vermilon River country, you let Boomer and I know. Boomer will speed you through the border. He has lots of pull with Homeland Security, and the Mounties. Don't forget to visit us often.
