How Sweet It Is... to Smell Grass? It Brought Me Home for A Moment

in actifit •  2 months ago

There's something about the scent of freshly mowed grass..

It seems to transport me to another place...

More like home...

They're mowing the grass at the playground.

For a moment, it felt like I was back home in PH. Like a day after the rain and my dad just cut the stubborn grass that had grown over the days.

Even the sky gave some kind of homey feels.

It was a humid morning and the sky was covered with thick clouds and looked as if rain would fall any moment.

Of course the rain had something else in it's mind. It did not come. Nor is it expected to for another 4 or 5 months.

You'd really think it's not the desert.

Do you ever wonder how they keep the surroundings green despite the constant hot weather?

Water fountains and network pipes.

Glad I was able to jog this morning

For a slight moment I felt like I was home...

It was a short jog for I came out late and had slower pace. I did not complete my target 10k steps. Still, 5kms ain't too bad. At least, I can now somehow keep active unlike before when I was a pillow-hugging person.

5.3kms in 1 hour.

Will try to do better tomorrow... 😉

I just really have to get a better sleeping routine and wish not to wake up in the middle of the night so I can wake up early.

I went out with my friends here in Delhi today. I felt same as you when I went across a garden where some grass was cut.I'm missing my college and my home very badly. Whenever I go to farm I experience the fresh smell of grass . But now,I feel all alone and far away from home. But my goals,family and friends keep me motivated all the time.

5.6 kms is actually good amount of activity and I'm sure you can achieve you goal all the time. I have seen you going over 13k steps and 10kms in your previous day. So,keep actifying!!

Those are wonderful pictures by the way!
