A tiny egg

Walking in NY

✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
A warm 60 degrees this morning and sunny as I walked around the Farm Loop. Everything is so green and pretty.  How thankful I am that I get to walk here each day.
The dairy cows were out again in the front pasture.  Didn't see Ruth today though.  I love how these cows have names and are not just numbers.

I cut through Farmer Marvin's farm road and went directly to the cemetery near the Drane house.  The geese and the goslings, which are getting pretty big already, were in the pond there.

I came across this tiny little blue egg.  I put a penny in the picture to give it perspective.  Maybe its a hummingbird egg?
Walked one loop around the two cemeteries and the ball park loop before heading back home.
Walked 6.3 miles.

No breakfast for me this morning.  Had to go over to Uniontown to get my blood work done.  They woman who took my blood did a great job.  Didn't feel a thing and she took 5 vials of blood.  My appointment was for 10:00 but we got there early at 9:30 and I went right in.  No waiting at all.  Nice that I was able to have it done here and not go back down to where we used to live.  Now just have to wait for the results.  Maybe I'll learn something about my numb feet.

Afterward we walked around Holly Lobby and I got two cotton balls of yarn (blue and yellow) on sale to make some more wash clothes.

Finally 11:00 arrived we went to Olive Garden for soup, salad, and bread sticks for an early lunch.  Sure was nice to be able to finally eat!!

On the way home we stopped at McDonald's and got ice cream cones.   Only 49cents.

Going to a BBQ in just a little while, and it's also a surprise birthday party for our friend Bettye.  : )

A happy day to you.

Thanks again

 for all your prayers and kind words.  
Blogging friends are special people. : )

I've missed blogging and it is nice to be back.
Will be around to visit you and catch up as soon as I can.

The next few days the main picture of the day will be pictures that I took while walking in NY.
I walked under this osprey nest a few times.
 She's coming for a landing.

This morning it was 52 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds and a beautiful day for walking.  Nice to get back to walking the Farm Loop.  Rarely do I see other people along there walking or running but today there was a runner.

Nice to see a few of the diary cows in the front pasture.  This is a young one and her ear tag tells me her name is Ruth.
Once I got back to town I took a loop around town and a quick loop around the ball park.  This brook that runs along the back of the park.
Then I headed for home.
Walked 6.3 miles.

Ken and I both have new cell phones.  We no longer have tracfones but have finally joined the rest of you and now have smart phones!!  I'm loving mine so far!  : ) Took this a picture with my phone up along the farm loop.
Ken was already gone when I got home from walking.  He went early to set up things for Fingerprints today.  I stayed home for a couple of hours getting a few things done around the house that I needed to do.  Then late morning I headed out to church for Fingerprints too.   Throughout the day there were 14 people there working.  Pastor went out and picked us up some pizza for lunch. 

Having a nice quiet evening at home.  Snack this evening will be Rhubarb cobbler.  : )  That's even better than ice cream!!

A happy day to you.

Update

Pictures from two morning walks in NY.

We got back from NY yesterday evening after being there since Wednesday.  We got my  mom settled in the nursing home and she seems quite happy there most of the time.  

My Dad is still hanging in there but is getting weaker and weaker each day.  He doesn't eat any more so has lost of lot of weight. He is ready to leave this earth and get to his heavenly home and is a bit impatient to get there!!  The cancer is in his lung, liver and in the two adrenal glands.

It is such a sad time for us but it is so comforting for us that we know Dad will soon be in a better place at his home in heaven.  


I spent the afternoon out in the garden today.  I raked and got my vegetable garden ready for planting.  The rhubarb has done quite well and I picked a bunch of it.  Tomorrow I'll be making some rhubarb cobbler and I just might throw in some strawberries with it too.

Not back yet to regular blogging, just wanted to give you all an update.  I'll be back to blogging in a few days.

Thank you all so much for all the kind comments and emails, prayers, and good thoughts.   

A happy day to you.
happyone : )
