Morning walks with my pooch

Since moving into my new home I have been walking my dog on a leash.  I have decided to see it as an opportunity to get some much needed exercise for myself and Z, my quirky little terrier mix.  Seeing it that way helps me trick myself into looking at it as a plus when my body wants to label it as a punishment.

Fortunately, it has also given me the opportunity to really take in the sky that has been so amazing these past few days.  I get to admire the beauty while Z does her business, and wonder if the ducks and geese on the frozen pond delay their flight south to enjoy the magic too.
