"Now and then little gardening can be done. Digging about the plants, weeding and water, is fascinating work, or to run the little grass-cutter over soft turft is an exercise to be enjoyed. But, when there are none of these privileges, a leisurely walk may take their place and bring one home rosy and invigorated in body and spirit."
My note: Well, as Mrs. Walker does, I believe in theory that everyone is more healthful when they get outside at least once a day -- in all but the worst weather. When my children were very young, I saw the difference in their mood and their quality of sleep when they spent lots of time playing in the fresh air. It's sad to me that many children are kept inside so much these days. And, then, parents wonder why they are cranky and whiny. But, at any rate, I'm not one to preach on that right now. I have quit being concious of getting fresh air every day for myself, so I intend to remedy that. Today is a good day to begin -- It's nice and sunny here. :)
