I have to walk The Neurotic Dog everyday, at least 2 miles, or else she's so hyper and clingy, I can't get anything done. We usually take the same route, a half mile to and from the park, then at least two half mile laps.
Tonight I went in a different direction. We've lived in this neighborhood for almost 12 years, and I was on streets I've never been on. I guess I always just keep to the same routes when I'm driving, and have had no need to drive on other streets. Really reflects what a rut I'm in.
I really enjoyed it. It gave me a chance to get new landscaping ideas, and I noticed several vegetable gardens.
We'll have to head the other direction next time.
