I went for a walk this afternoon and got caught in a thunder storm, but the forest looked so fresh and green afterwards it was worth getting soaked for.
Should have been carrying an umbrella! ⛈

So, I was using my umbrella for the sun, but then in the second hour, it started to rain! How convenient to already have an umbrella with me. :lol:
Who knew you'd be using your umbrella for more than sun protection! ☔

Walking on that road is scary, because it's all forest except for that one house. A coyote could get me, or I could be kidnapped and nobody would know.
Hmmm... maybe your brother should get you a cell phone next. 📱

I'm not sure if a cell phone would work on that road, it's all forest. Dad has one, it's just a flip phone that you buy minutes for, not a smartphone. He only turns it on when he has to call me from town. I'll ask him if I can try it.
Might be a good idea to carry it with you, just in case you needed to contact someone.

I didn't go for a walk today, but dug weeds and put down soil and grass seeds, so got 3 hours of outdoor exercise.

My arms were too tired to hold one up after all the yoga.

Is it legal to carry bear spray or something like that in your state? I'm thinking more for coyotes than anything else. If you get surrounded by them you'd need something to keep them away until your dad or brother can come out and help you.

I don't know. Usually the coyotes here leave people alone. But I'm scared the entire time I'm walking on that road. I like walking on the road to the right, since there are more houses, but puppy lives on the forest road to the left.

I stayed on the driveway today. I tried to use the FitBit watch my brother sent me, but it turned off as soon as I got outside. Maybe I need to bring the ipad with me? It would be hard to carry it though, it's rather big.
