Ever have one of those days where you just need rest for your soul. When you just need to get out of the house because you
have a mouse need a change of scenery. We recently found out that we have a mouse in the house, I saw it behind the couch yesterday in our living room. Since I had a nightmare about it last night I decided to take Judah outside of the house for a bit.
He first wanted to read his book to the gnomes on the front porch.
Then we headed to Burke Lake park. Its this beautiful wooded park that is 3 miles down the street from us. The trails that surround the lake are gorgeous and perfect for a jogging stroller. Once we enter the park my heart feels like its engulfed in joy and I feel a stream of calmness running through my soul.
I love the semi silence of the woods, all you hear are your feet crunching against the rocks, the occasional biker or runner and the birds singing their songs. I love to get lost in the peaceful beauty of these woods while I let my troubling thoughts just float down the lake, far away from my heart.
We ended up running 4 miles and we would have probably stayed longer but Judah and I were hungry.
We had a lovely mid day picnic snack in the backyard. We ate blueberries and roasted seaweed while we colored and read books together.
We still have the mouse in the house, but my soul feels a bit better after our visit to the woods. Hopefully we will catch the mouse before next week.
