Arboretum morning: 5 Friday photos

As you might already know, my husband has taken on a one-year commitment as my personal trainer. It’s not an easy job; the hours are long, the goal is lofty, and I can be a master complainer. He also has to meal plan and prepare healthy foods (which, sadly, do not include significant quantities of chocolate). To his credit, the meals have mostly been delightful and he is finding interesting things to do for our activities.

Today we took a walk through the arboretum in our city.

The weather was cold and damp. I was grateful for my warm hiking boots that kept the wet ground from seeping moisture onto my toes.

There wasn’t a lot of  the gorgeous fall color I’d become accustomed to when living a few hours outside our nation’s capital, but I did notice quite a bit of pink!

I’ll be out of town again for a few days next week — back to Mom’s house to help a bit more with the cleaning out. I wanted to get at least one more trip in before the mountain passes get their winter snows. It gives my husband a break, too. Being my personal trainer and chef is a full-time job!


Thanks to Aunt Snow over at Doves Today, I’ve been inspired to join in PINK SATURDAY, hosted by Beverly at the blog “How Sweet the Sound”. Let the color pink inspire you!

  1. Gosh, these are amazing pictures. Especially the first one. Wow. I don’t know Spokane, I really only know Western WA, so I am unfamiliar with the beauties of “East of the Mountains.”

    Thanks for your comment on my blog, Karen. I don’t know about the Weekly Words Challenge – tell me how did it work? Maybe we should start it back up.

  2. You are going to be just fine Wednesday morning. Believe me, the whole deal is an anticlimax after the prep. And you will be fine. I’m crossing my fingers for you. Just think of what you want to eat, later!

  3. I still think you should have moved over here, then your husband could march both of us around to great picture taking places. I just am not motivated to go alone.
