Winter walk

Winter walk is something I really enjoy. Now for most of you a little walk for a short while may seem silly but I have such huge problems with arthritis its hard for me. I get very depressed because in my mind I am still active, but in the real world I am not.
So Sunday was a good day and I got to walk with my husband to collect holly from a near by field. My daughter has a pub and she wants to decorate for Christmas. We found a lovely big holly tree and took some cuttings to use to decorate.
So today I also got out for a little walk which is great for me. The weather was dull and damp as we had a lot of fog the night before but I didn't care. It was peaceful and still and the leaves were falling off the trees like snow. Everywhere the light fluttering of the leaves was beautiful and I was glad that today was a good day, and I got to go out.

I am lucky I live in a beautiful place right out in the countryside. I was born in London and all my life I wanted to live in the countryside. Its just a twist of fate that when I get that wish I cant always enjoy it.
I love this time of year... the cold crisp days and being warm and safe at home. I am not a summer person so I look forward to autumn and winter even if to some I am strange.

So today my winter walk was great and I hope that there will be other good days for me to enjoy.
