DP Daily Prompt: Nothin’ But A Good Time

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Imagine that tomorrow, all of your duties and obligations evaporate for the day. You get the day all to yourself, to do anything you please. What types of fun activities would make your day?

If I’m fortunate enough to get a day all to myself, meaning I won’t have to feed the kittens, cook, clean, or write prompts.

This day would be super cool. I’d listen to all my favorite songs, when I’m tired, I will call my college friend in Whitby Ontario, will talk about the good old days, talk about the rest of our classmates, how they are and where they live.

Next I’d go to the Mall and walk for a while to increase the number of steps I’ve taken, which is great, then I wouldn’t have to achieve my goal by running in place for more than an hour.

After walking around the covered mall for an hour, hoping it would be enough to reach my goal, I’d stop by at the food court to have something to eat.

Weather permitting, I’d get out of the mall and walk in the parking lot to get some fresh air. I’d go in again and stop at the Cole’s bookstore to see if there is any interesting book I can buy to do some reading. If there is nothing I like I’d step into Winners store, browse around, I may pick up a thing or two or buy nothing because the line at the counter is too long and I wouldn’t waste this off day standing in line for a half hour.

I’d come out of the mall take route 2 my bus, come home,wear some comfortable clothes and get my eleven hundred page book, ” Atlas Shrugged” will read it till I’m sleepy.

This would be an ideal way of spending my free time.

DP Daily Prompt: Walking On The Moon

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

I saw some pictures of astronauts on the moon,it looked like they were hopping. I know lack of gravity made them look like they were walking in slow motion. Whatever we choose to call it I guess we are free to do so.

When I first tried to walk on ice I wasn’t sure I’d be able to succeed without falling and breaking my leg. I managed to walk slowly, every step I took felt like it was an accomplishment.

It might seem weird to people who are born and brought up in a cold country, to them walking on ice is no big deal.

I was born and brought up in a country where the word snow is unknown. When I tell them how difficult it is to walk on snow or ice

they do not get it.

Although I live in a cold country now , I still am scared to walk on snow or ice.

I am preparing to go for the walk.I think I’ll be able to walk 2Km today.I am back from my walk,I am excited to write I managed 3.1 Km today. I’ll have two more to go,which i hope to complete tomorrow. Thank you WordPress for this.

I am back to record what kind of fitness i was able to do today the 24th of September. Nature is not happy for some reason,it’s shedding buckets of tears. I have to keep my promise of doing something. My trustworthy stationary bike came in handy. Here is the summary: I biked for 21 minutes at level 1 which breaks down to : 5 minutes at resistance-1=    6 minutes resistance– 2 =5 minutes resistance -3=  5 minutes — resistance 5    total minutes is 21.

It’s 5.8 Km distance      Calories burned 27.3;  fat calories burned -=5.8.

I don’t know if Nature will stop being so sooky,if it doesn’t tomorrow I may be able to walk the  remaining  2 Km , of course  weather permitting!

An afternoon on the bus Post by Ranu

I have decided to walk 5km  beginning a km a day,the week of 23rd September to 29th September,it is wordpress health week. I am allowed to walk one km a day. With this in mind I left home this afternoon to get ready for the occasion. I need to get myself ready for the walk.I have started walking since yesterday.Today I got dressed for practice,I hardly walked a few yards, I noticed the bus stop. I changed my mind and wanted to go for a ride on the bus.Ten minutes later the bus arrived I happily got on.

Suddenly I remembered the prompt about people watching. Grand idea I told myself I’d have a swell time watching people boarding the bus. A few stops later 3 passengers got on.One was a woman in her thirties and two little kids aged four  and five, the woman was a baby sitter. The four year old was blonde while the other one had dark curly hair. I’m not sure if they had ever boarded a bus,they were sweet with a big smile on their face and wide-eyed. It was a treat watching them. They were very well behaved and did whatever the sitter wanted them to do. After a few stops they got off.

Next I took another bus to get home. There were a bunch of happy people talking about blueberries,how many different ways it can be used. The bus driver was friendly and nice,he turned on the radio at full volume, some of the passengers were singing along including the driver. The bus route I normally take does not provide any kind of  entertainment,this was a new experience for me.

It was soon time for me to get off which I did, I  walked back home  and made sure it was at least a kilometre . I felt good I was able to walk the 1km according to my plan.All in all I had a great time.

Walk Alone song by Tagore Translation by Ranu

If no one answers your call, then  walk alone,

Walk alone,walk alone walk alone.

If no one speaks,O  unfortunate one,no one answers your call,

if all of them go back and  are afraid,

then open your heart and let your feelings known vocally.

If all of them go back, O unfortunate one ,no one turns around ,

then  trample the thorns and move on with your bleeding feet.

If no one answers your call,

If they don’t hold the light in the dark night,

if they close the doors because of the storm,

then walk alone on the impassable path

and light up the light in your heart and walk alone.

If no one answers your call walk alone,walk alone,walk alone.
