Half way through the 90 day challenge today!!
The walks continue. The time of day varies now, as it keeps getting darker, and the last few days, rainier. Today, snow. None of it is sticking, though, which is good. I’ve never looked so forward to the time change. I do think after this time change we should stop dorking around with the time though. There’s no need to “Spring Ahead” anymore.
Saturday’s walk was the best in a while. Sunny, with brilliant blue skies to contrast the fall colors.
I haven’t spent much time listening to podcasts or books this week. As I get further into my Tonglen practice, I find that my walking is giving me additional opportunities for meditation. As we get closer to the election, my energy is becoming more and more turbulent. My walks help me burn off some of the physical part of the energy, and meditating at the same time stills the mental energy.
One of the good things that has come with the cold weather is a renewed interest in making crock pot meals. Yesterday I made crock pot mushroom wild rice soup and fresh baked bread in my long unused bread machine. There are few smells as good as baking bread.
