H is for Hiking. #AtoZChallenge

Mon.TrailShot1.16995997_10209124369295359_6999787220647151004_n They won’t stop and pose, so here’s a sneak photo, I call it a sneakie!

Everyone is getting along.  There is plenty of fresh air and movement, no time or need for talk to fill the space, though I throw some words in now and then.  My son replies in one-word answers.  He doesn’t talk to me much lately as he has entered adulthood, but the trail does not require much talk anyhow.  Our dog is happy as a jumping bean and my son is the one holding his leash.  They are capable of the same pace; I lag behind, and that’s okay.  They have youth ahead of me.

The hike through a local trail has been an excellent way to spend family time.  Especially when my son didn’t have a job and needed to get out of the house.  It’s a good thing for my dog any day, he loves to run, sniff, explore, and to do it all with his human companions is just golden to this loyal canine.  My son has bever been overly enthusiastic about having this dog, yet they are totally compatible on the path, neck and neck.  I must add though, that my son doesn’t wait too long for the dog to sniff and I interject about that at times, but it’s all good.

Now, my son’s employed again and a bit more independent.  Not to mention, he gets a lot of exercise while working.  He may not need the hikes so we may not be taking as many.  I may just have to store this in my bag of tricks for any day in the future when he feels down and needs an excursion.  In the meantime, I may be spending more time at the dog park.  Bixby loves to run and sniff with other dogs, and we haven’t been in a while.


Blog2017 Badge

**The AtoZ Challenge theme for my blog is “Who I am.” Yes, it’s wide open.  In April, I will blog from A to Z to include little tidbits about me, poems I’ll share, and stories. Each day I will write something based on the next letter in the alphabet.  It’s been fun so far, yet it has really given me a chance to pause for reflection as well.
