|Bursting to bloom lilac buds|
I managed to walk twice around the lake for a total of 5.2 miles, so I guess I can say that I am back to normal with the hip business. I'm not as fast as I was, but who cares? I can do it, once again. I made the mistake of not wearing my waterproof light boots, and it was a muddy mess on the trail around the lake, which I should have realized. No matter, they will clean up just fine.
Then Lily and I went over to the Farmers' Market, where every person I saw was wearing a smile and basking in the sun's rays. Those of you who don't have days and weeks of rain have no idea how happy we become when that yellow sun begins to shine here. It's the beginning of a wonderful season to come! Yay!!
