I saw two people out walking dogs and also Petey and John who I stopped to chat with for a bit. Those of you who are new to reading my blog, they are an older couple who are 91 years old and walk a few miles every morning and are a great inspiration to me.
I counted 8 deer along my walk and got a picture of this one.
There were lots of birds about making their happy early morning chirping sounds. They always sound so happy. I wonder if they every wake up in a bad mood!
Walking along one of the paths I saw a white egret fly by a couple of times. I've seen them many times over by the lake but this is the first time I've seen one along this path.
I heard a woodpecker and also an owl but couldn't find them.
So nice to be out early in the sunny morning walking.
I walked 6.1 miles.
********************Well, my pantry was getting pretty low on food so I made out a shopping list and went to the commissary. When I got to the base just outside the gate there was a little protest going on and there were some people with signs. I didn't stop to read them but the one word I saw was murderer.
The gate guards usually have a comment to make about my car as I drive through and they check my ID. Today's comment was, "I'd like to take that for a test ride."
I had a little trouble finding powdered milk (use in recipe for bread machine) but eventually I did find it by the chocolate milk. Found everything else I needed and got checked out fast because there were no lines to wait on. : )
On the way home one lane of a road was closed because of work being done and there was a bit of a tie up for a while getting down to one lane and then I got almost all the lights. But I made it home safe and sound with all my groceries so I must not complain!!
I got a load of clothes washed and hung up on the line before I left and another load washed and hung up when I got home. Nice with the warmer weather I can do the laundry morning and afternoon.
The strawberries I bought today were especially good and I made a sandwich of them for lunch. I've mentioned eating them a time or two and most of you say you have never heard of a strawberry sandwich before.
I just slice some strawberries, put them on a slice of bread, sprinkle some icing sugar on them and put the lid on. That easy and so very good.
That second load of wash isn't quite dry yet but I do have to go and fold the first load of clothes, do a few other chores and then it will be time for a little reading.
Hope you find bits of happiness scattered about your day.
one doesn't have to be disagreeable.
