I didn't plan on walking around the lake. I started out going up the street toward the liquor store and i felt like i should turn around so i did and headed out toward the lake. I walked along a bit and started going down another road, then once again i felt like i should go over to the lake so this time i listened and went to the lake. I believe that God directs my life and i didn't know why but knew i should walk around the lake.
I was about half way around the lake and coming toward me was Carol, a woman who goes to my church. Her and her husband are frequent walkers around the lake and i see them often. She was on her own today and asked if i would mind if she walked with me. That was when i knew this was the reason i was supposed to walk around the lake. We walked and talked all the way back to the path that leads me back home. She hugged me, turned around and with a smile headed back home too.
I stopped on the red bridge that i posted a picture of yesterday and today i took a picture standing on the bridge looking out at the lake. There was a mist on the water again till the sun chased it away.
I walked 6.1 miles.
************************************************I didn't need a lot but there were some things i needed in the way of food so i made up a short list (20 items) and headed out to the commissary. It was such a pretty sunny day that i drove the long way there. The end of the month it is usually crowded but not today - no line at all. Renovations are not quite finished yet and it wasn't easy finding a couple of things but eventually i got all on my list.
There are cashiers and baggers and the baggers work for tips only. I have canvas bags that i use and one is insulated for the cold stuff. I know i've mention this before but the baggers have a hard time getting the cold stuff in the bag even when i mention to please to that. Today i put all the cold stuff together with the insulated bag and asked the bagger to please put the cold stuff in the insulated bag. I'm standing there and she starts putting the cheese and butter in a regular bag. I said, those would be the things to go in the insulated bag. She said oh yeah. I just don't understand what is so hard about getting that right. Yes, i still gave her a tip.
Read quite a bit this afternoon because i have a book due tomorrow. I still have 100 pages to read so i guess i'll be going to the library tomorrow evening instead of during the day!
I made lasagna tonight for supper and ended up eating it alone. The phone rang a little after 6 and when i saw that it was Ken calling i laughed because i knew he wasn't making it home for supper and i had just taken the lasagna out of the oven. I laughed because i think my lasagna must be jinxed. The last time i made it was when Debbie, a co-worker had car trouble and he was late and brought her home for dinner. The time before that was just like tonight! I think next time i will make it on a weekend when Ken is already at home!! It's funny too because he usually calls me earlier and i know not to cook anything.
I am going to go and read some more of that book now and when Ken gets home and eats his lasagna supper i will eat my ice cream. : )
Hope all is going well in your part of the world.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
Treat everyone with politeness,
even those who are rude to you.
Not because they are nice,
but because you are.
