It’s always nice to get used to walking to get my mail, now that the weather has changed for the better. I enjoy seeing my neighbours and the children outside playing. I love looking at the icebergs offshore while everything is turning a rich green.
Our road is not as wide as I’d like, so walking is often tricky if there are vehicles going each way. I smile and that helps, as no one wants to run you down if you look happy and healthy! Do they?
Fathers are out with their sons playing catch and often the ball is going wide. Am I safe? Not so sure, but I’m trudging on, filling my lungs with fresh air!
A neighbour picked just this time to mow his lawn and now I have to contend with the noise pollution, and now there are rocks flying everywhere. Guess there is more than grass on that lawn!
Oh, no! The mailman hasn’t finished sorting the mail into the proper slots so I’m being waved away, so it’s around the block I saunter, wondering what other surprises I’ll have to deal with before I finally get my mail. The main road is hectic as people are now returning from work, eager to get home to barbecue or clean up their yards. So if I manage to get back safely it’s because I’ve been eyeballing all the drivers, letting them know that I’m just as important as they are!
