back in the habit

I do believe I'm going to walk home from work more often. I already do it once a week, but why not every day? I get off late enough that the sun isn't bearing down, but early enough that it still exists. It's a very short, easy walk, and my laptop fits comfortably in my backpack. Plus, there are lots of cool photo opportunities, like this field full of dandelions:

Or the guy that was using a discman instead of an mp3 player. Unfortunately, I did not get a picture of that one. But those of you that follow me on twitter got that news as I immediately updated from my phone.

When I lived in NYC, I walked everywhere. I loved that. I miss it. You would think not having a car in Michigan would be reason enough to walk places, but I do still have a chauffeur of sorts. However, I think I am going to try & get Jay to walk with me. Can't hurt, right? But even if he doesn't wish to accompany me, I can easily do the 10-minute walk by myself. 

ps - If you want some pretty jewelry, check out my etsy store. Failing that, I can make you something special. Just tell me what to do.

pps - the other day leaving the apartment complex, we saw that a squirrel had gotten hit by a car. We swerved to avoid the little body (the guy behind us did not! Jerk.) but couldn't tell if it was Griswold or not. I haven't seen her in a bit, so I really really hope my adopted pet squirrel is ok.

I totally saw someone with a walkman. Tapedeck. I felt a rush of love and amusement.

i've walked to work basically every day for the last 4 years. with only a few exceptions. it's 3/4 of a mile one way.

I just got so used to the winters here (and having a chauffeur) that I haven't been walking. Now that it's nice weather, what am I doing?
