Home, that’s where you will find me on any given Sunday. But this Sunday, a couple of weeks ago, Mark and I ventured into Fishtown to visit with Jess. Actually we traveled over to Northern Liberties for brunch at Heritage, one of the places where Jess is currently working. We had a wonderful time catching up with Jess before her adventure to New Orleans for Mardi Gras! After our visit, Mark and I were anxious to have a little outdoor adventure so Jess recommended Wissahicken Park.
“Come to the woods, for here is rest. There is no repose like that of the green deep woods. Sleep in forgetfulness of all ill.”
― John Muir
We drove out of the “city” anxious to escape and find ourselves exploring fresh greenery and the deep rich scent of a woody path. What fun we had. The day was gorgeous and the trail, inviting.
Sundays are currently my only day off. I use my Sundays to take care of laundry, changing sheets and catching up on school work. But to have a Sunday which is truly a day off, like this Sunday of Presidents’ Weekend, is such a blessing. I am so glad that we didn’t waste it. I am so grateful for the opportunity to take a walk in the woods!
