I subscribe to Wordsmith and am sent a new vocabulary word every day. I loved today’s word…obambulate which means to walk about. It’s earliest documented use is from 1614. It is from the Latin ob (to) and ambulare (to walk). IMG_2165-0

And obambulate I did! Yesterday it was such a gorgeous afternoon with temperatures reaching 77 so I went down on the University of Pittsburgh’s trail for a nice walk. I sure miss having my Sadie with me. It has been a long time since she has been able to go on a walk with me. She was the one who asked me to take her for a walk daily.

IMG_2133The trail is right in back of our Pitt campus. We are so lucky to have this university right at our doorstep.

IMG_2131Everywhere I turned there were photo ops.

These precious days before the long weary winter are so welcomed.
