I didn't see anyone around the first part of the lake but the second half I was surprised to see as many people as I did. There was one fisherman at the waters edge and another one in a boat.
I watched the heron fly low over the water across the lake. I saw the geese family again too. The six little ones are getting pretty big and today I saw three tiny ones mixed in with the six others. I wonder if they are adopted. I don't think she could have laid three more eggs already!!!
Some of the birds I saw were blue birds, cardinals, gray cat birds, red winged blackbirds, and robins.
On one side of the lake I saw this box turtle crossing the path.
And on the other side I saw this painted turtle crossing the path.
They just wouldn't pop their heads out of their shells for a better picture!! I told them they would be on my blog but that didn't seem to impress them.
I enjoyed my walk in the rain. : )
I walked 6 miles.
********************Left a little after 9:30 this morning and went over to the mill for a morning of knitting with my knitting group of friends. There were 17 of us there today. Lots of talk, laughing and we even got a little knitting done! : ) I made a few weave-it squares and sewed some of them together. For some reason I enjoyed the morning more than usual.
Talking on the phone while driving around here is against the law but you would never know it when you go out driving. It is so annoying driving near people who are in a world of their own and don't know what is going on around them!!! I am really surprised that there aren't more accidents caused by these people. I would love to be a cop for a day and give all the people who are talking on the phone while driving tickets. It would make my day. There, that's my rant for the day!!
When I got home I had some lunch and then finished sewing the rest of the weave-it squares I had made together in a row and then onto the part of the blanket already done. Tonight I'll make some more.
Now I'll spend some time here on the computer and then I'll read for a bit before making supper. Tonight we are having meat loaf and baked potatoes and cauliflower. When my daughter Debbi was little she would call that a meal. A meal to her was when you had meat, potato and a vegetable. Every time I eat a meal like that I think of her! : )
So that's been my day.
A happy day to you.
