I walked along one of my connect the path routes which connects a few paths together crossing the least amount of streets. It is fun finding different ways to connect the paths up.
Everything is so lush and green and full that it is hard to spot the deer now. I didn't see any at all but I did see a few rabbits. Two Gold Finches flew by and I heard a woodpecker but couldn't find it. The birds seem to extra chirpy lately. I guess they enjoy these beautiful mornings too.
Passed quite a few people along the paths, all people I've seen before but only knew the names of a few.
My phone rang and it was my friend Lin calling. She was out walking too and we "talked and walked" for about a mile.
As usual it was great to be out there and I walked 6.3 miles.
********************Tuesday is knitting day but I ended up not going. We meet outside again now that's May and it was cloudy and windy out today and just not quite warm enough for me to sit outside and knit. It seems the only time I'm not cold is when I'm walking!! : )
So I stayed home and finished the book I've been reading - One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus. The book is fiction but got its start on an actual event. Back in 1854 at a peace conference between a Northern Cheyenne Chief and the US Army, the chief requests the gift of 1000 white women as brides for his warriors. In true life the request was denied, the women never came, the conference broke up and everyone went home. In the book the white women DO come and are traded for 1000 horses. The story is told in the form of journals written by May Dodd, one of the woman. I liked it a lot and the book was hard for me to put down.
After reading I did my exercise DVD, had some lunch and got some work around the house done. Seems there is always SOMETHING to do.
Don't have to cook anything for dinner tonight because last time I made some Spinach/Bean soup I made plenty for two meals and froze it. There is also a couple of homemade rolls left in the freezer and they will be thawed out too.
And that's been my day so far.
Hope your having a good one too.
It's not how much we have,
but how much we enjoy
that makes happiness.
