Sunday Morning walk - the first of this month
I took this at a waiting shed beside a church. I discovered some months ago that You can actually have a view of the sunrise there. I do pass that by all the time and noticed that there are stairs going up to the roof but I thought there's nothing much to be seen there.
It was one of my morning walks that I climbed up the stairs and discovered that it is a nice place for sunrise.
I got lucky today for I was there at the right time to witness one. The colors quickly faded away.
Again, I was reminded that we shouldn't assume for things but rather try to do it see for ourselves what we can discover. Relying on our assumptions alone will mostly prove us wrong.
Also, grab opportunities while you can. Doing it later may be too late.
I have no plans whatsoever earlier today where to go. However, I have been feeling down again lately. I still have motivation to do things but the feeling of enjoying things, excited about doing them is what's lacking. I am getting that feeling of worthlessness again. I do feel that a lot but it's building up getting stronger. I feel the need to go for a walk because it does help in giving us happy hormones. It has been tried and tested and done and proven to be true and effective.
As most of you know, I usually bring our trash with me during these walks of mine and deposit that to areas where garbage are being collected. So after I did that, I then headed to the park.
When I got to the nearest mall, I was almost at 5k-step mark but I was feeling the effect on my body. I haven't walked that far in a long time and my body is adjusting again.
But I pushed on. I had to condition my body. I have gained weight again. We don't have a scale here to measure that but when you noticed your clothes are tighter, then you know you got bigger as what happened to me. It is a challenge to adjust again and to go back to old routines but I hope I can do this again.
When I got to the park, this was being set up. There was a race to be held that day. I don't know if it was bike or marathon but I saw lots of bikers milling around when I passed by the second time on my way.
I also noticed these clouds which look like a mountain.
Earlier boat riders at the park. You can see mist on the waters. It was colder than usual and it was not even 7 a.m. when I passed by. That's how early tourists are. It's smart to start early so you can cover more before things will get busy as the day progressed. It is a weekend so expect a crowd.
In the afternoon, it rained. I planned on going to the grocery but that had to be postponed.
It rained hard and there was hail even. Some places were flooded and those at the Session Road market encounter suffered for some tents and items were washed downhill by water. That's how hard the rain was.
Checking the weather, there are two storms heading our way with the possibility that it will merge into one but hopefully not.
I watched the sky for after the rain, I noticed the sky got lighter. I have a strong feeling there will be a rainbow and there it was. Two of them but the lighter one cannot be seen. I had to edit the phot to bring out the colors of the first rainbow.
After my walk this morning, I slept throughout the day. Exercise is important but rest is important as well. I am not getting younger anymore and recuperating takes longer than usual.
How was your Sunday? I hope all is well.
