It's one thing to live in the country and earn your lunch. Up at dawn, lifting, bending, aching. Manual labour, I think they call it. It's quite another to send the kids off to school and bake another batch of scones, while you look around at the snow on the ground and wonder what to do with yourself when the kitchen timer goes off.  Besides, of course, eating the scone, with sweet jam and thick cream. 
As there are no sidewalks near the house, and I have a cute little pram just waiting to be filled with a baby, finding a suitable walking place has been top of mind. I did fairly well with my weight this pregnancy, surely because I lived in a city without a car to get me anywhere. I don't want to spend the last month of pregnancy catching up on lost time. 
Aden Park is a walker's paradise. Some trails are a little off the track, while others are perfectly paved and primed for Mom and Baby Group get togethers.  We tried last week to make it a habit by going every day after school. Spring was in the air, and in our step. And then it snowed, and I'm back to making scones. The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.
