I came across four deer and they didn't even run away as I walked by. Just looked up from eating, looked at me and then went back to eating. I said good morning to them as I walked by.
I encountered four other people out along the paths. I often wonder of all the people who live along these paths how many have never walked along them. I remember one time when I first moved here and didn't know exactly where I was, I asked someone who was working in their yard where the path came out. He said, "I don't know, never walked it."
Just before coming home, I walked up to the liquor store to see if there were any coins in the parking lot. I was rewarded with a lucky penny. : )
I walked 6.4 miles.
********************I stayed home today and got started in on cleaning right after breakfast. It's been cloudy all day so a good day for cleaning. I got a lot done and not just surface cleaning. I pulled cushions off the furniture and vacuumed them, removed the books from the shelves so I could dust the shelves better and dusted baseboards. Cleaned the bathrooms and did load of laundry.
I didn't have time to do a thorough job of the kitchen so I will save that for tomorrow. I also didn't do my loft but that will take a complete day because once again I have made quite a mess up there!! It is out of the way and I'm the only one who goes up there so I have a tendency to just leave things as they are. One nice reason to have a place all my own.
I feel good that I got a lot done but now I'm ready to sit down and relax and do a little reading. I'm reading V is for Vengeance by Sue Grafton. I've read all of her other alphabet books. I don't even know if she wrote any other books but them.
Hope you found reasons to be happy today.
Thoughts come clearly while one walks.
