....the solitude of the early morning. It's going to be pretty hot today, so rather than wait until after work to get my exercise (usually a 30 minute walk) I decided to do it this morning. It was lovely being out there in the early morning, with only a few other walkers and joggers and the requisite animal life. It's such a peaceful time of day. I plan to do the same thing tomorrow - going to be even hotter - and may keep it up through the summer. It also has the added benefit of allowing me to come home from work and jump right in the neighbor's pool, with no guilt since I've already exercised!
