I have started a new routine of walking Miss Magda (or Merlin) every morning. Jamie and I rotate which dog we get depending on how early he or I need to get into work. Since I head in later on Wednesdays, I get Magda on these days, and we walk 2-4 miles around 6 am. Yeah, I know — all of a sudden I’m like a senior citizen. We’ll see what happens when I’m working from home all the time, gumming my apple sauce and clipping out newspaper articles to mail to the family.
But for now, I really like this start to the day. It’s super quiet out and the lake is calm and it’s a nice morning with the pup. I keep thinking about bringing my camera with me on these walks, but as of late it’s been raining every day, so I’ve left it at home. These two images were shot with my iPhone today — I think they illustrate why it’s so calming this time of day.
