Freedom!

I spent this week packed in a small room with eleven strangers and Eko spent this week alone and bored.  In short, we were both ready to get outside and stretch our legs.  Our first order of business was a nice long walk to the park.  I don’t think I would ever go for a walk on my own, so I am thankful I have Eko to get me out there to enjoy the simple pleasure of stretching one foot in front of the other.

At the park, the sun broke through the clouds and we basked in the winter light

Eko was enjoying himself so much that he failed to notice the six-month-old puppy sneaking up on him until it was too later

The pup announced herself with a jump directly on Eko’s head

Followed by a big, smiley hug

The two then spent the next twenty minutes flying around the park playing tag

Nothing beats a good romp!



Eko and I are both very lucky that I work from home.  This week was a nice reminder to appreciate that good fortune and to never let a day go to waste.

Walking is a very favourite thing of mine, but I honestly have slacked off since we don’t have a dog now. It really is so much more fun with a companion. I loved all the action shots with the puppy!

What happened to your snow? I will send you some more, you have to have snow for fun in the winter, although, it looks like Eko found enough fun! We also agree that working from home is a wonderful thing!
