Mother’s Day and other bits

It was a rainy week last week, with bits of sun and color. We’ve started a walking challenge at work, and initially I thought I’d need to buy a pedometer to track my steps, but a friend clued me in that modern phones now have this function hard-coded in. A couple days, I was able to log around 8,000 steps, which isn’t too bad. Other days, I managed less than 1K! That’s what telework will do for you. However, even despite rain and not so optimal spring temperatures, I got my b-u-t-t outdoors and took in the local fauna. See pictures below.

I also put together a vlog of last week’s funtivities, and I included footage that my eight year old took. He’ll get a kick out of it. I’m having trouble uploading it so I’ll post it as soon as it goes live. (UPDATE: It’s live. I embedded it below. Mother’s Day bits included!)

I hope you had a great week last week. Feel free to share some of your adventures in the comments below!

      Thanks! I’ll take the sun whenever we can get it these days!

    It’s been so rainy that I haven’t had a chance to get out much, but I do get to walk quite a bit when I sub at the local high school. I use an app on my phone to track my steps.

      I telework three days a week so if I don’t go outside, I log a pathetically small number of steps. :( So, I am going to have to go out rain or shine. I can handle a little water, right? :)
