Spring is beginning to unfold in the woods, and the first blossoms are emerging on bare branches, one of my biggest weaknesses. The pears everywhere are going crazy, and the woods are not immune. I originally drafted this post a week or so ago on my phone, then forgot about it, but these pictures were fun so had to share. Right now it is sloppy wet outside from all the rain.
We’ve been trying to get out to play at the Hollow Log a couple of times a week. My Striiv
usually clocks our walks at about 5-6,000 steps, depending on the tangents we take.
I can never resist the little fresh bright green ones. It was cool to eat them in fifth grade science camp, and it’s still cool. Helen says they taste like “red” and that’s about the nearest description I’ve heard. It reminds me of the red hibiscus cooler at the taqueria.
We were having so much fun, we hardly realized what a workout we were getting. The Striiv has a limitless game where you build things on your little fantasy island with energy points you get by walking and completing challenges. Helen loves to help me collect coins from my island, and I frequently do stair challenges on the long flight between the Hollow Log and the restrooms next to the Old Swimming Hole. Helen is always urging me to do challenges so that she can press the button to make the plants grow on my island.
