This past week has seen cold winter weather come to Atlanta. With highs in the upper 30s to low 40s it has been way too cold for my liking. Monday I pulled out my down coat for the first time. 

We were spoiled before that. The weather was springlike and flowers had started to bloom. I loved it. 

It gave me the opportunity to get out and try walking a bit in a park that a friend told me about. 

The walkways were great. Some were wooden and others paved. 

There were also a lot of people around so I felt very safe walking by myself. 

The only drawback was that it was really hilly and with my knee not being completely healed it was a bit difficult for my first effort at walking since the sprain.

I was able to do about 20 minutes, which I know isn't much, but it was a good first effort and if this cold weather would go away I would try to get out and do some more walking. 

There were some nice wooden benches in that park and as the sun was shining and the temperature was 72 I took advantage of just sitting and enjoying the afternoon. 

Unfortunately, that warm weather is on hiatus and since it has been cold and rainy I have used the time to stay at home and get some much needed work done. Yesterday I mopped my floor, cleaned out the refrigerator, and listed some things for sale on Etsy.

Next week it looks like we will be back up in the 50s, which will definitely be an improvement. 

Today I am heading off to chair yoga, picking up a couple of things at the grocery, and doing a rain rain go away chant.

Until we meet again join me on PinterestInstagramLTK, and Etsy.


  1. Looks like a beautiful park. All the wood looks great in that environment. 20 minutes is a great first start with your knee.

    Enjoy your chair yoga.


  2. Hi Laura,
    That park looks gorgeous to take a walk in. I think you are doing great with your knee to go for 20 minutes. Moving no matter how much time is always good. We are very cold up here in Illinois with snow. I can only dream of walking outside. Hopefully we will see an early Spring. Happy Friday.

  3. What is that white furry thing in the last photo? I think where you walk is beautiful and I'd be snapping photos the whole time. It's been very cold here all week. Rainy and some snow.

  4. That's a gorgeous park! Love those wood walkways through the trees. 20 minutes is good with a bad knee.. that's about what I do with my knee that has never gotten totally better from a fall 3 years ago.. but I feel fortunate I CAN walk, and though it hurts some while I'm walking, it always feels better (or not any worse) the next day, so I know the movement is good. We had a couple of 70 degree days here too in December.. what a shock that was! Now is more normal, in the 30's and 40's and nights in the 20's. I'm also looking forward to some warmer weather, though enjoying an excuse to just stay in my craftroom and create! Take care.. .Marilyn
