In the spring when the lily pads first started coming out they were all brown and I thought there would be a problem with them this year. Well, I certainly didn't need to worry. Look at all of them here at this end of the lake. Now there is almost too many of them!
There were a lot of people out around the lake, especially for a Monday. My friend Lin called and we talked and walked together though 14 miles apart. She always calls when she gets back in the area. Lots of traveling for her with work.
One part of the path I walked there were geese and ducks to the right up on a grassy hill. On the right near the water were four rabbits and up ahead right on the path I saw a cardinal catch a cicada and fly off with it, happy to have caught a good breakfast.
As always it was so good to start my day off with a nice walk.
I walked 6.2 miles.
**********************************************Ken usually washes the FJ but it was parked out front looking pretty dirty so I drove it around back and gave it a wash. It will be a nice surprise for Ken when he gets home to see it all nice and clean. : )
Then since it was already out in the driveway in the way of my car I just went out in the FJ. It is also a fun car to drive sitting up so nice and high. It felt strange not to have to shift and I tried to push in a non existing clutch a few times.
I had an Oreck vacuum that I really liked and had it for years. When that broke a couple of years ago I got a new one and I've been telling myself I like it good enough, but I really don't like it and thought it was time to get a new one. I've heard nothing but praise from people I know who have a Dyson so this morning I went out and bought one. There are a few models to chose from and I ended up getting the DC23 canister one.
So of course when I got home, took it out of the box and put it together, I had to vacuumed the whole house. I really liked it and it was the most fun I've had vacuuming in years. : )
Just hanging around the house this afternoon. Too hot to sit out on the deck so I'll just stay inside.
Hope your having a Monday that makes you smile.
Happyone : )
I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears
makes one you can ride on.
