After a year and a half I still feel like the new one in the neighborhood. Years ago I rollerskated almost every afternoon. The rollerskates were my favourite transport means, and they could get me just about everywhere. But then I started to move places, and I never could really find the perfect route for rollerskate exercise (as in a long stretch of asphalt with little to no traffic to increase the heart rate). Last Sunday’s weather report was rainy, and when the early morning showed some sun, it was the best thing to just get out. I put the baby in the stroller, so he got to enjoy the scenic route, and I got a chance to do some fast pace walking to wake up completely. I didn’t mention I got only 5 hours of sleep the night before, so I had to get out of the flat, otherwise I’d fall asleep on the floor.
I didn’t take the rollerskates, but I did check a side road I had in mind for a while. Although it’s close to the main traffic route to the nearby town, it’s blocked by a low railing, and offers a great view of the surrounding fields and mountains in the back. On my way back, I picked some wild daisy flowers to remind me of the sunny morning. I have to admit I’m enjoying them these last few days, as the weather turned grey and dull.
