You all know this is my most favorite time of the year. I wish summer could last for oh-about 11 of the 12 months of the year! I have so much energy at this time of year. I have been walking 2 or 3 miles in the mornings. It is fun looking for rabbits, checking out people's gardens as I cruise by, and seeing the occasional hawk or turkey. And because the kids don't have some of their regular commitments I have been able to fit in some Zumba classes a couple nights a week. I adore working out to good music and while I could use a video at home, a group is way more fun.
Doing such things for myself is a summer treat. I don't walk when it is cold and dark out. My body says that smart people are in bed then. Also with transport duties for Rob for college I would have to get up significantly earlier than 5:20 if I wanted to hit a gym. No thanks, 5:20 is early enough. Likewise, I am on the road with the kids during the school year when the Zumba class takes place. So I am treasuring these opportunities for indulging myself. Admittedly my wife thinks I am a tad touched in the head, that I consider this all fun, but I do!
