Evening Walk: The Difference a Month Makes

On as many evenings as possible, I take a walk in the 'post-supper, pre-dishes, while Hubby gives Kiddo a bath' time frame. This often means I'm still cleaning the kitchen at 9pm, but we do what we gotta do. It generally works out to be around 6pm, which can look a lot different from one month to the next...


September:


Hot, sunny, green, and wildlife all around – by "wildlife" I mean rabbits, mice and lots of people walking their dogs.


October:


Colourful, cool, and fewer people out so it's nice and quiet. I like October.


November (aka post daylight savings):


Dark. If it weren't for the flashlight on my phone I would have been walking into trees. 

Come December, this path will not only be dark by suppertime. It will also include patches of black ice. In other words, it will be a death trap (or at least an ankle-breaking trap). As much as I prefer the outdoors, I might just have to suck it up and start making use of my gym membership.
