Beautiful evening

This is one of the more stressful weeks of the year in our area at work and I haven't been doing much but going to work and coming home to just sit and watch tv, plus I was still getting over being sick. Today I walked to work and felt good and then decided to walk home. It was just finally dark when I got home but it was a beautiful walk. Everything started out with that pink glow, the mountains, the trees and a lot of the houses since the area I walk through is an older area with quite a few houses with pink stucco. I like walking toward the mountains when they are pink and blue from the sunset. It sounds tacky but they are beautiful.

It was a nice walk. My shoes are bothering me in one place but I just loosened my laces a little and it was a fine walk. Dusk is always my favorite time and I've always enjoyed walking in the dark. It's a little spooky sometimes and I'm usually too tired to walk home when it's very late, but when I do walk at night I really enjoy it. That's one reason I like walking to work right now since it is dark.

I'm feeling much more cheerful than I have been. It's like my psyche is saying it's a new year and I can start over. I'm sure there are more efficient ways to mourn but you take what you get. I'm mentally keeping my fingers crossed so we'll see. I do feel better if I walk so I don't know why I put it off when I get busy or stressed because then I feel worse. Humans are so silly.
