Day 49 Destination Walk The Yard

It’s been an uninteresting day for the most part. I was essentially unimpressed throughout most of it, but there were a few highlights. 
I was pleasantly surprised to have my husband show up during his lunch, even if it was just to return a booster seat he accidentally ran off with and to pick up fishing gear. Regardless, I was happy to see him even though it was a short visit. 
Later I spent a good 45 minutes on the treadmill while the offspring enjoyed the kid center at the gym. While I worked out, through the glory of Netflix on my phone, I watched Destination Truth, a SyFy show that I’ve only watched a handful of times.


I’m not sure why I landed on that show except maybe because I had to find something quick since I didn’t plan ahead and also because I happen to enjoy listening to Joshua Gates speak. I love his narrations! I actually saw him on an episode or two of Ghosthunters and those were my favorite episodes. So, I watched an episode of Josh searching for a long lost dinosaur and a mermaid *Spoiler Alert -- They don’t find either! Shocking, I know!
After the gym, and a dinner, the kids bickered as usual. But once they were off to bed, I felt like I needed time with my husband. I invited him to take a walk with me... around the yard. Well, we couldn’t really go anywhere with the kids in bed so I improvised. Walking together was something we always did when we were dating and we still enjoy it when we get the chance. I miss those long walks, so I wanted to have a little bit of that tonight. We just made a handful of passes around the yard and talked about whatever was on our mind. It was a welcomed escape!
So while everyday may not have big whoppin’ smiles, I appreciate the moments that did ease my day and take away stress, there’s always plenty of that around. I am grateful for the smaller moments as well...


  1. I'm glad you and hubby walked your yard. :) I use to enjoy walks like that too. Hope you have a great day! Angela

  2. That sounds like a great night. We have been trying to do family walks and or runs together which has been nice. Thanks for the comment. I am now following you :)

  3. Kelly, I found you via voiceBoks and can't wait to get to know you better. My hubby and I walk the neighborhood at night, but it's been over 100 degrees in Oklahoma for too long, it's just impossible right now. Can't wait to get back to it.

  4. The small moments are the ones to cherish. I miss walking with my husband. I think I should put that on my to-do list!!

    I've been wondering about Destination Truth. I've come across it a couple of times on Netflix. I think I'll give it a watch.

    Stopping by from voiceBoks!
