Cause me to hear Thy loving kindness in the morning; for in Thee do I trust:
cause me to know the way wherein I should walk for I lift up my soul unto Thee.

Corn Stalk

☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
It was 45 degrees when I left this morning with a sky full of stars.  As the sky lightened up the stars disappeared and a beautiful sunrise appeared in the sky.  Certainly worth getting up early to walk in the dark.

Walked mainly around town, but I did go up Sale Barn road a bit to say good morning to the cows.  They were up at the other end of the field but a couple of the young ones came running down the hill when they saw me so I waited for them. Number 50 came over by the fence and I took his picture.

I saw the man walking his two little dogs again down by the Drane house.  They are back to barking at me.

The sun coming over the mountain as I headed back home and it was out shinning in a pretty blue sky as I walked up the driveway.  Nice to have no rain or mist about.

I walked 5.6 miles.

I took advantage of this sunny day and got my sheets out on the line first thing this morning.  Ken went to the hardware store in town and picked up a pallet of pellets for the pellet stove.  He unloaded them off the truck and stacked them up in the garage.
Since it's Monday we met our friends for another three games of bowling at the lanes in Keyser.  I ended up using my 10 pound ball this week.  I asked the man who worked there if he could grind the thumb hole out just a bit because my thumb would stick once in while.  He did it and didn't charge me anything.  Wasn't that nice?  : )  Sorry to say it didn't help my bowling any.  This weeks games were 77, 84 and 112.  Afterwards we went to the Chew and Chat again for something to eat.  There were 6 of us today.

On the way home we stopped in LaVale at Martins and did some food shopping.

A corn stalk starting growing in our back yard a while back and we let it grow to see how big it would get.  It's not very tall but it did grow a tassel.  : )
So that's been my day so far.
A happy day to you.

Lost Sheep

Parable of the lost sheep
Luke 15:4-7

4. What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lost one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

5. And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them; Rejoice with me:  for I have found my sheep which was lost.

7. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

A blessed Sunday to you my friends.
Jesus loves you.

A rainy walk

☂     ☂     ☂     ☂
I didn't leave the house until 7:25 this morning.  It was just too dark and rainy for me to wake up early!!  It was 42 degrees, rainy and windy.  I put an extra sweat shirt on and my rain paints and yellow slicker and I was set to go.  It would have been too windy to just take the umbrella.

I stayed around town and walked all over the place with no special route in mind.  I didn't see any one else out, only people in cars.  Didn't even see any animals.  It was kind a nice walking in the rain and I liked hearing the rain on my hood. : )
I walked 5.2 miles.
A couple of pictures along my way.

Ken spent some more time down with his trains.

I cleaned out and straightened up some cabinets in the kitchen and when I was done had a few empty cabinets.  Isn't that nice?! There are cabinets out in the garage which had kitchen stuff in one of them. Now I was able to move those things into the cabinets I cleaned out in the kitchen. The empty cabinet in the garage can get filled with some of the stuff laying around in the garage.  I'll do that another day though. 

Going to spend the rest of the day reading and maybe do a little knitting.
Haven't decided on supper yet, though I do know what kind of ice cream I'll be eating this evening - chocolate chip mint.  : )

Enjoy your day.
happyone : )
