Not Everything is as it Seems!

Life can be confusing. It's not always what it seems! We went for a Sunday afternoon stroll today (I have been reliably informed by Miss 18 that I cannot call it a walk because we were too slow to call it a walk!) along the River Torrens Linear Park. Me and my entourage. Just the six of us. I am just sooooo unfit at the moment and am making an effort to improve my fitness, so we have been out walking. One of my favourite Aussie tv shows, Seachange, has a discussion about fitness that I often think about. Laura is discussing fitness with her son Rupert and he tells her that there are all different kinds of fitnesses. He just has skateboarding fitness, but there's soccer fitness and..... Well, I just have sit and sew fitness, which is barely on the fitness radar at all! So we have been out walking. So far it has been fun! The first thing we came upon this afternoon was the little black dog having a drink above. I don't know whether some park authority painted it there or whether it might be considered graffiti, but I love it! To me it is art!

This is Mr 10 "fishing" in the Torrens. He has a rod/stick, all that is missing is the line! Everything is still green along the Torrens. It was a lovely sight today. There were lots of birds too. They were all the real deal though. Looking forward to this week. Some visiting planned, some sewing, some painting and some gardening.

I love walking along the river. It was really windy today though.

I can relate to the sit and sew fitness! Love that doggy on the wall too. Fabulous outdoor pictures too. Great post!

I had to look really hard to be sure that wasn't a real dog!

Surely sewing burns up lots of calories...especially chocolate calories. Tell me it does ..PLEASE!

My fitness trainer says walking is one of the best (and cheapest) forms of fitness. Just atart out slow, but just do it a little every day.

That dog is a classic! Clever graffiti is definitely art.

We are so lucky to have the Linear Park. At first I thought the little dog was a shadow and then I realised what it was, I love that kind of street art too.

Eight kids and you say you aren't fit.??? Fitness isn't about just running and doing crunches. bet you never sit still.
