Embracing Autumn

I was not sure what I wanted to write about this evening and then I decided that it would be a good idea to share my walk I went on today.  Yes, I actually went for a walk today. About time I got some activity in.  I even made a couple dollars on my Sweatcoin app.  Have you heard of that app yet?  It pays you to walk outside. Well, it pays in the form of gift cards and other offers. I’m waiting for it to offer cash through PayPal. It’s on their list of to-do’s. So hopefully, it’ll happen in the near future. Anyway, I did about 3,300 steps and earned $2.78. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but every little bit adds up.  I haven’t really walked much at all yet since loading this app and I’m up to $38 now. I’m not complaining.  I know a friend of mine who is well over $200.  If you’re interested, check it out sweatcoin.

Okay, so after church I decided to take a little drive north and stopped at two little parks to take in the fall colors.  One was a roadside park on M-82 in Newaygo County.  The other was Riverfront Park also in Newaygo.  This park is on the Muskegon River.  This is where I took my walk along the river.  There was a nice path that you could walk along.  The weather was perfect. I didn’t need a jacket. It was probably in the 50’s and the sun was out.  Here are some pictures from the day.  I’ve even included a couple of pictures of myself.  With how many selfies I take, one would think I was vain or something but I really am not.

I really enjoyed my time out in the fresh air enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.  But I will admit, it would’ve been more enjoyable with a special someone holding my hand.  This lonely thing is getting tougher and tougher to handle at times.  I’ll be honest.  I know it hasn’t even been a year since my divorce.  I’m crazy right? Don’t answer that! I need to get out and enjoy the weather more if there are days like today.  I need to enjoy them while they’re here before the snow flies. Ugh! I’m NOT looking forward to snow! My friends in Minnesota have had some snow. And I know friends in the U.P. are getting a dusting tonight as well.  You all can keep it there please! I’m not ready for snow!

Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and happiness.
