Adventures of an empty nester mom

Snow and 89 more days until ‘step off!’

I walked 9.1 miles on Friday, then Snow fell all day on Saturday. The streets were clear over the weekend but it was still too cold for my blood. I ‘step off’ the brass plate in St. Jean Pied de Port in 89 days for my 40-day trek, called the Camino de Santiago.  I must be prepared both mentally and physically, but this snow cramps my style.

From my cozy office, I’m purchasing and packing tools, clothes, and misc gear. I’m readying for this adventure by training, reading, and researching. The only set back I’m experiencing is walking outside, with no access to a treadmill.

My clever alternative: At home and in-studio yoga. This will keep me in the zone and fit. When the weather rises to 50*F, I’ll head back outside.

What do you do when it’s too cold to ‘play’ outdoors?? Inquiring minds want to know.

I adore my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free please), and belly-laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERY DAY. I've lived in five US states and two foreign countries. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I enjoy sharing my creative Empty Nester life.
