A book I like : )

Didn't leave until a little after 7:00 this morning because woke up late again. 45 degrees this morning and a bit on the windy side.  Another rainy morning and I went walking in my rain pants and yellow slicker.  Just misty at times but other times it rained hard.  Nice listening to the rain on my hood.  Most of you know I enjoy walking in the rain. : )

Walked over to the library first thing and dropped The Goldfinch book down the library book drop.  Walked all over town and the usual cemeteries and ball park loop too.  No one else out in the rain this morning so didn't stop to talk to anyone. 

I found a lucky penny - heads up.
Walked 6.6 miles.

A rainy day is a good day for baking so I baked a big batch of chocolate chip cookies again.  This time for the kids church for this coming Sunday.   I baked 136 cookies.  100 of them will go to church and the other 36 are in reserve.  One thing good about these cookies is that they freeze well.

I started another library book and this one I like!!  It is called Cape Refuge by Terri Blackstock.   I've never read any of her books before and this one is the first in a series of four.  It's a good murder mystery and a page turner for me.  Check it out HERE.

Well, I'm going to get back to my book.
Hope your day was happy and bright.

This picture was taken of the sunrise yesterday.

It was 44 degrees this morning with a misty rain every once in a while but not enough to get me wet.   I didn't take any pictures while walking today so here's another one from yesterday.
Walked around town, then down towards HT, back to town and around the cemeteries and the ball park loop. 

I saw a couple of rabbits.  It's been awhile since I've seen any of them.  Maybe it's just been too dark to see them.  It's not until around 7:20 that it starts to get light. 

I saw Lisa again at the first cemetery and we stopped to chat as always.  I was just leaving and she was just getting there.  On my way to the second one, she passed me up (she runs).

Always enjoy my walks : ) and today I walked 6.5 miles.

We went to Walmart to do some food shopping this morning.  Only cloudy when we left but the rain was coming down in earnest on the way home.

I finally finished reading The Goldfinch and I'm glad to be done with it.  It was a long book with almost 800 pages in it.  I liked it at first and most of it was pretty good but overall it was just okay. 

I straightened up all my yarn and put it in baskets on a white shelf that I had down in the basement.  It now sits in my office/craft room.
I haven't done my exercise Body Electric program yet today so I guess I'd better go and get the over with.  I have to make myself to that.  It isn't like walking.  : )

Hope your day has been a happy one.

Betty - Nice to hear from you. : )  I don't walk the trails at HT in the morning because it is 3 miles one way from my house, so just there and back would be 6 miles and walking the trails too, would just be a bit too far.

Another fine day : )

❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
I didn't get to walk yesterday because I woke up late and there was no time before church but it was a nice sunny afternoon and we spent it up at Happy Trails doing a little work but mostly just walking around on the trails.  It was quiet and peaceful.  So thankful that we have this little corner of happiness. : )
A couple of pictures from yesterday while there.

Back to my normal morning walk today.  A chilly morning with a temperature of 35 degrees and there was a light frost in places.  A pretty sunrise as you can see by the top picture, but then the clouds took over and I didn't see the sun again.

First went to the post office and put a letter down the mail slot.  Then walked down towards HT on the main road, turned around, then back and around town.  Walked around the cemeteries too which are a block from each other and a block or so from the main road in town.  Met up with Lisa at the one cemetery and we stopped for a chat again.  When she left I walked around the graves again.  It's always sad to see the gravestone of a baby and I wonder why he died.
Walked around the ball park loop also and then up past the library and home.
I walked 6.2 miles.

Ken is up at Happy Trails today and I wanted to go with him but just have too much to do around the house so I'll be home today.  I hope to get a lot done and maybe read some this afternoon.
It is Monday and half price pizza day at Brenda's.  Maybe that will be dinner tonight.

Hope your day is sunny and bright.
happyone : )
