Sharon -  It's not that I'm so tall it's just that they are short. 😊 I am 5'5".

I had a mini morning walk today of only 2.5 miles.
It was 60 degrees, raining and windy.
I took along my umbrella but it didn't do a bit of good as the wind
just blew the rain at me and I had a hard time keeping hold of my
umbrella.  A couple of times I thought it would blow inside out.
Walked up and down the main road and once around the ball park.
Just was not enjoying this walk and since I had to be home early
anyway, I just went home.

Yesterday while I was out Ken went to church to pick up the
church trailer and brought it home and this morning we went to
PA to pick up more Romans books to assemble.
We got 2 pallets this time.
 We got back home around 4:00 but
before arrived home we stopped at Katie's for ice cream cones. 🍦

Since I only walked a little this morning I took another 4 mile walk
this evening.  Sun, clouds, 68 degrees, and VERY WINDY.
Walked through town and around both cemeteries.
The sky was looking dark in the north and I thought for sure I would
get rained on again but the rain stayed away until after I was home.
A few pictures from my walk.

I plan to do a little reading, watching Netflix and making a few
weave-it squares, a typical evening at home and one I enjoy.

Life is Good
A happy day to you.

Bloggers Meet

🌳     🌳
Walked out the garage door and it started raining so turned around 
 went back in and picked up my umbrella and then went walking.  
64 degrees and it rained on and off during all of my walk.  
The umbrella went up and down quite a few times.

Walked behind my house, through town, up Barn Sale, down
toward Happy Trails, around both cemeteries and back home.

Didn't see any one else out in the rain.

Saw the usual rabbits and some very young ones.
A few killdeers were around by the town pond. 

Walked 6.2 miles
Found a penny  😊

9:30 this morning I got in my car and drove to Whispering Pines
in Spring, Pa which is only about 18 miles from my house. 
I went there to meet two blogger friends.
That's Melanie on the left and Dianna on the right.
Dianna and I met through blogging and we have become 'in person'
friends too.  Melanie and I are also blogging friends and she is visiting Dianna
so the three of us planned to meet at Whispering Pines.
It was so nice to finally meet Melanie and the three of us had a great
time talking and laughing.  As with all bloggers friends I've met it is
like meeting an old friend. 
We had lunch at The Dawdy Haus which is a little cafe at the store.

The three of us bought a few little goodies from the store.
I got these cute measuring cups.
A kind employee at the store was nice enough to take pictures of us
with three different cameras. 
Those few hours went by very fast and soon it was time to head back home.

I should have done some work when I got home but I didn't do a thing.
Got a little reading done and put out bird seed for the birds.
Had supper and now here I am.

Life is Good
 A happy day to you.

⛅     ⛅
55 degrees again this morning.  Started out sunny but then clouded up 
and there were a few rain drops but they didn't amount to anything.
The rest of the day was a mix of rain, clouds, and sun.

My walk today was around town going up and down all the streets.
Went a ways up Barn Sale, toward HT, around the cemeteries and
the ball park loop.

The building the car dealer is putting up is coming along and they
are working on it most days and looks like it will be done soon.
Kathy was out walking but I saw her far away and she didn't see me.

Lots of cows back in the pasture up Barn Sale but
they were too busy eating to take notice of me.  

Walked 6.1 miles
⛅     ⛅
Right after breakfast we headed over to church.  It was time for me
to weed the little garden by the radio station. 
Looks so much better after a little weeding.
Planted some marigolds there too.
Should have taken a picture but didn't think of it.
  Ken was busy getting the church trailer ready for another trip to
pick up more scriptures to put together for next month.

Ken dropped my off home and he went up to HT.
I weeded the vegetable garden and then came inside and
made Rhubarb Cobbler with the rhubarb out of the garden.

Had a quick supper and then I walked over to the
library for a session of coloring.
 I was the only one who showed up but enjoyed coloring anyway.
The two librarians colored too and took turns when someone needed help
at the desk.
 Would have taken a picture of my picture but didn't finish it
so I will have to finish it next time.
Ken picked me up and we went to church for Wednesday Prayer Meeting. 

Home now and will be nice to sit in my chair and have some of that
Rhubarb Cobbler.

A happy day to you.
happyone 🎈

PomPom - The cabin is a good distance away from the house so we will still use it as a little getaway.  It will make a nice guest cabin for visitors.  If it is too rugged for quests, they can have the house and Ken and I will stay in the cabin.  I'm thinking my Son, David will love staying in the cabin.  Maybe he'll be by for more visits. 😊

Vee - Yes, I have a day goal of steps and keep my Striiv in my pocket ALL the time.  I keep track on a web site with other walkers and I've joined a challenge for the year to walk at least 15,017 steps a day.  As of today I'm in 7th place out of 72.

Art - Yes, when the house is built we will live there full time and sell the house in town.
