I saw a couple of chipmunks chasing each other around and the geese and ducks looked happy to be in the water.
When I come to the end of the the walk around the lake, there is a big open area and the sun was shinning brightly. Up ahead the path that leads away from the lake has lots of trees and is covered in shade. Coming out of the sun and into that shade felt so good. It must have been 10 degrees cooler.
A lot of days as I come home, I pass up my house and take those few extra steps around the block, but today when I saw my front door, I thought of cool air and a drink and never made it around the block.
I walked 6 miles.
*********************************************My knitting group today was moved inside to Savage Mill because of the hot weather. A small group today of only 7 of us but we enjoyed our time together. One of the woman Franny, found a weave-it loom at a yard sale for I think she said 25 cents. Today RetiredKnitter showed her to to make a weave-it so now there are three of us weave-it people. : )
Today I started knitting another white square for the sampler blanket I'm making.
From Knitting I picked up my friend Mary Jo and we went to Olive Garden for the all you can eat soup, salad and bread sticks. I didn't feel like having the soup so just had salad and bread sticks. Our server Maire was terrific. She was nice and friendly and didn't keep bothering us but was always right there when we needed a refill of something. Since I wasn't having any soup she told me she would package some up for me so I could take it home. She gave me not only one kind of soup but two and also threw in some extra bread sticks. We also got 6 of the little mints that come with the bill. We gave Maire an extra big tip!! : ) She was one of the best servers I've had.
It was so nice to spend some time with Mary Jo. There is just so much talking you can do before church starts!!
The turn lane they are making near my house is just about done now. Today when I came home they were putting the road bed down.
There were a bunch of workers digging holes and pulling cable through the holes along the side of my townhouse which is on the main road. Not sure what it is for but there were lots of trucks all over the place around my townhouse complex. There was a big truck parked right in front of my garage. I had to get out of the car and ask them to please move the truck so I could get in the garage. The guy was not happy that he had to move his truck. Though he could have driven it farther down the road to let me in, he moved down just enough to let me squeak passed. When I went to say thank you, he didn't even acknowledge I said anything. Oh well, it was hot and I guess he didn't feel like working.
My plan is to get some ironing done this afternoon so I'd better get to it. I have the seven new shirts Ken bought and four others besides. I wonder how many of the eleven I'll actually get done!!
A happy day to you all.
Happyone : )
When is the last time you skipped? I did this morning!
Skipping is just jumping for joy, step after step.
