Not that I’m religious or anything (and I don’t have anything against anyone who is) but as I was walking in today’s sunshine, I kept singing Oh Happy Day! Well, I couldn’t sing much of it besides the title as I don’t even know the words but I sure did have the tune in my head!
The day was clear, the sun was high, the heat was… well, the heat was nowhere to be found! I was texting back and forth with my cousin and finally had to tell her that was it. My fingers were frozen!
That said, there was a definite spring in my step and in Zeke’s too! We ended up walking around for a good two hours. (How in the hell did I NOT get my 10,000 steps in? Whatever.) I knew I had a tonne of work waiting for me at home so I wanted to get in as much fresh air as possible.
We decided to go way to the other side where there is park after park and pathway after pathway. They wind and connect and bring you to all sorts of places. I am so happy to have discovered just how much Boucherville takes care of its pedestrians!
And to finally see proof that there is growth!
On our way back towards home, I could not help but notice this poor birdhouse all askance. Wonder if it gets any visitors willing to risk sliding right out?
And then. Oh joy! What do I spy but a beautiful Mallard, enjoying a little pond in a park. He just sat there, allowing me to get closer and closer and snap away. Wasn’t easy holding Zeke back but I did manage a few nice clicks. So, so, so pleased am I! The satisfaction I felt is probably a tad over-exaggerated but there it is. I accept it. I embrace it. And, I share it!
Oh happy day!
