This is the day the Lord as made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

A day at Happy Trails

 ❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
I hit a new personal record of steps yesterday.  28,117 and I just might beat that today.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
It was 42 degrees this morning and cloudy and I'm happy to say it was dry.  Not even the threat of rain.  

Once again I walked round town, around the cemeteries and loop by the ball park.

A few people out, a man walking his dog, the lady with her ear phones and Lisa.  Lisa and I  almost always stop and talk.  She told me about a store called Gabriel's that I should try.  She said it's a great place to buy walking and running clothes with fantastic sales.

It sure was nice weather for walking this morning and I walked 6.4 miles.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
Right after breakfast we headed up to Happy Trails and spent the whole day there.  I took a PB & J sandwich and an apple for my lunch.
We have huge piles of stuff to burn and we spent some time at the burn barrel.
Did some chipping.
And put the chips along the trail.  You can see we just have a little bit more to do.  Next time we go up this trail should be done.
We also hiked around the trails and roads a bit.  This road here is on the state owned land which runs along the back of HT.
It was a productive and fun day and I bet I sleep good tonight!!!

Hope you have had a happy day and smiled often.
happyone : )

A new gas tank

❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
This morning it was 42 degrees when I walked.  No rain but it was cloudy and felt like rain. 

Walked all over town and down the main road out of town in the opposite direction from HT.  The picture here is down by a small industrial park off the main road in town.

I didn't see anyone else out walking and didn't even see any animals either.  Just too dark!!  Looking forward to changing the clocks back to the normal time it's supposed to be. 

Still I enjoyed my walk and walked 6.3 miles.
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
Not long after breakfast we left in the truck and went down to Cumberland to pick up a new gas tank for the church bus.  The old tank has a slow leak.  It was a little bit tricky finding the place because there are so many one way streets and there doesn't seem to be any order to how the streets are laid out.  Very hilly streets too. I would have never found it but with Ken's good sense of direction we did. 

We stopped at Wendy's for lunch.  I usually get a baked potato but today I splurged and got a spicy chicken sandwich.  I can't remember the last time I had one of those and it was so good,  I enjoyed every bite. : )

We were stopped at a railroad crossing and was pleasantly surprised to see this old steam engine go by.  I took this picture out of the window.
We dropped the gas tank off at an auto shop that is owned by a member of the church and they will be putting the new gas tank in the bus. 

It was nice to see a little bit of sun today.  It was cloudy when we left but sunny down in Cumberland. Then back home it was cloudy again.  
Still there was no rain and we enjoyed our day.
Life is Good.

Hope your day was a happy one and you smiled often.
happyone : )

A book I like : )

Mrs Ladybug
❤     ❤     ❤     ❤
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.
happyone  : )
