On Monday Dave and I actually took Mosie outside! Mosie never goes outside. Even though we found her living in the wild, since then she’s become quite the domesticated
scaredy-cat kitty. Monday it was so nice outside that we decided to see how Mosie would take being outside.
She loved it! Her little nose was working overtime to take in all the smells and she didn’t know where to look first – the cars passing, the leaves blowing in the wind, the birds hopping. So many smells, sights, and sounds! We thought Mosie might freak out and try to run away, but she really was just curious. Toward the end I think she even wanted to get down and start exploring!
Unfortunately for Mosie, that’s as much outside-adventure as she’ll ever get. We don’t want to let her outside very much because of fleas and other diseases. We love her as our inside kitty!
If we did take Mosie outside, I’d definitely want to try putting her on a leash! I think she’d hate it, but it would be funny. My friend Kim puts her cat, Data, on a leash! I think that’s awesome.
On Sunday it was in the 80s, so sitting outside felt great. Today it just reached 60! Welcome to crazy Indiana…
I’m hoping to go for a walk on my lunch break. My hip feels a little sore from yesterday, so I’ll probably do a shorter walk. Still, I want to get back in the habit of exercising after my long hiatus!
What’s the longest you’ve taken off of exercising – for an injury or just because? Prior to 2009 I would go through spurts – get into running/working out for a few months, then completely fall off and do nothing for months. Then cycle through it again. Since 2009 I’ve really managed to stay consistent – taking time off when I need to for rest or rebuilding, but staying in a good, healthy pattern. I want to maintain that pattern!
