Getting my "natural" Vit D!!!

Well the sun was FINALLY shinning today, so I decided to get myself out of the house. I just read an article on the importance of Vit D and it's prevention of MANY cancers, not to mention so many other diseases and conditions like osteoporosis. With just 15 minutes of sun on your hands and face, you are provided with more then enough of your daily requirement!! So, I got off of my butt, and made Roxy's day by asking her if she wanted to go for a walk on the Lake.....hubby usually takes her!

Roxy patiently waiting for me to get going...probably wondering why on earth I have the camera along for our walk!!


Our destination is the park, way in the distance! Usually a 30 minute walk...today 45 minute due to the fresh foot of snow!!!



OK...so I might of bundled up a bit too much for this walk...I HATE being cold!! I even have snow-pants on...the forecast was calling for -20 degrees C, but I didn't check before I left! I think it must of been warmer for I began sweating in 5 minutes LOL!!



This dog is sometimes out and about when we go out on the lake....his owners are building a steel dock a few houses down....YES in the winter....its easier!!! Roxy and him have sooo much fun chasing one another and it really tires her out...which she needs...her breed is of herding nature, and boy can she run!! During the summer she almost get in a run a day between myself, hubby and daughter all being runners :) We don't run outside in the winter, just too dangerous!

Finally home...I wonder if this counts as my exercise for the day??I was suppose to run on the "dreadmill"!


Have a WONDERFUL active day!!
Hugs,
TRace

Love your post today Tracey! I know Roxy is glad you took her outside today, cold or not. I love snowy bright days, when the sun is out and the sky is blue. Do I spy a screened in sleeping porch?? I have always wanted one! Lucky, lucky you!

Your dog is such a cutie Tracey. She must love all the space of running around on the lake. Oh, and your house is a beauty, is that a screened porch I see?
