I enjoyed this chapter more than I had expected to. The exercises could be fitted into short spaces of time that I could snatch during the day or evening and were a fun and welcome break from caring for my much loved spouse, domestic chores and taking care of our guest. Early morning and late at night were my favourite times to do this.
I've been doing a lot more walking in order to try to improve my fitness (and spreading waistline!) and I keep seeing texture in the landscape everywhere I go. I couldn't resist adding a few more photos to Chapter 1 as more inspiration.

Another day, when I've more time, I'll convert them to greyscale and play about with Photoshop filters but now it's 7 pm and I'd better think about starting to cook dinner!
