That I loved nature SOO much!! There is something about bringing my eating into harmony with how God would want me to eat and being able to enjoy all of His creations. When I was heavy, I don’t remember loving the outdoors or smelling that fresh air or noticing the intricate beauty of trees and mountains! I feel like I can’t get enough of it now!
To rewind back a bit... these last few days have been hard. Brent has gone back to work and I don’t know a single soul here. There is so much to do and I find myself sleeping in way late & my kids do too. I’ve layed in bed early in the mornings thinking to myself that I should go run. I haven’t run since well before my move and I have been eating extra calories. I need to get more active! But I find reasons to lay in bed and rest or think and procrastinate my mornings away. BUT today, I got up and went running! Yay me! I ran for 20 minutes until my knee started hurting. I will need to build it up again so I’ll take it easy and not push it. It was a nice run and I enjoy seeing my thin shadow on the pavement. It still surprises me that it’s my shadow! Brent and I are thinking about running another 5K in August here in Utah. That would be our first 5k running together if we do!
Then tonight, my girls had a church activity so me and the boys had a delicious dinner of salad and tai peanut chicken. There was a loud thundering and lightening storm around dinner time with a major downpour of rain. After that was all done, we went for a bike ride. WOW! Pictures just can’t do justice to the beauty here. We live in our own valley with surrounding majestic mountain ranges and amazing sunsets. There are gravel and dirt trails all over along with paved trails. There are fields of wheat and bushes of mint and all kinds of yummy smells.
We had so much fun exploring for several miles around our house and naming the dirt roads our own names so we can refer to them later. I could explore those trails for hours on end and never get bored!
Today was a good day.
Next, I hope to get my kids signed up for school and pray that they will find good friends - kindred spirit friends. And I may slip a few prayers in there that I will find some too!
Life is good!
