Fall: Moving Forward
Fall is my favorite time of the year and I have been enjoying it. I've taken a few trip to the mountains and went to an apple orchard.
I went hiking a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with it. I recently joined an all-women's hiking group.
Today I went shopping for hiking boots. They feel kind of awkward. I will continue shopping until I find the right pair. I want to start walking in them because I'm planning to go on a group hike on the 20th. It's a combination hike/birdwatching trip so I'm pretty excited.
I had to put my swimming lessons on hold for now. I cannot afford the lessons and all the hiking equipment I need right. A good pair of boots are not cheap. I need to make sure they fit properly. Even though my diabetes is controlled, I'm paranoid about getting cuts or blisters on my feet. I also need to invest in a few "million dollar" pair of hiking socks.
I purchased a backpack on Ebay yesterday. I also want to get a pair of convertible hiking pants.
Well, that's it for now. I'm so excited about enjoying this beautiful fall weather.
