Engine 2 nationwide challenge, day 8, Time to slow up!

Leave a comment

Feeling a little under the weather today and I think it was a reminder to slow down and pace myself. I could hear my father in my ear saying, “Slow up!” He was a workaholic and was sorry in his later years that he didn’t  take more time to slow down and enjoy himself. He taught us by example that if you’re going to do a job, then do it right and we all took it to heart. Sometimes, though, it can mean you don’t settle for less than your ideal which is impossible to maintain. So here’s to slowing down to enjoy the scenery and letting our bodies get the rest they deserve!

Here are some winter scenes on a day I was on a deserted dirt road and took a moment to stop and enjoy the snow covered trees!
