A quiet Saturday morning. Didn't see anyone else outside. Just a few cars on the main road and no cars at all passed me all along the farm road
or on the road back to town.
I had too many layers of clothing on because I got pretty warm after a while. Not complaining though - it felt nice to be warm. : )
I walked 6.1 miles.

I have the day to myself. Ken went down to Tomonium to the train show for the day. It's about 2 1/2 hours from home. He has a list of things to buy that he will use for his layout and a trip down there gives him a chance to meet up with his old train buddies.
I called my friend Bernice and had a nice catch up chat with her. She's my friend who I have known my whole life and is the sister I never had. Her and her husband Chuck are planning a trip here when the weather warms up. It's been awhile since we've seen each other and I can't wait for them to visit.
Then I called my son David had a catch up chat with him too. Got to talk to my grandkids Scout and Japhy too.
I had a whole list of things I was going to do today while Ken was gone and I didn't do any of them.
We've been working on the puzzle getting all the pieces right side up and today I finished. The border is just about done with just 3 pieces that haven't been located yet. They will just turn up as we work on the puzzle. I don't like to have any pieces inside the border but with a puzzle this big I don't have any choice. Some big puzzle huh!?
The day turned into a beautiful sunny one with temperatures in the mid 40's. By afternoon I just had to go outside. Since it's been so cold the snow was very light and feathery, not good for building a snowman. Now with the temperatures warming up the snow is melting and is wet, perfect for snowman building so I went outside and made a snowman. I had to make him a bit smaller than I wanted to because I couldn't lift the second ball of snow I rolled up on top of the first one. Snow is HEAVY. Here is my snowman. Isn't he cute? I think HE looks more like a SHE.
A few cars passed while I was making him and they tooted and waved at me. I guess they wished they could be out playing in the snow too. : )
I was quite warm building the snowman and I ended up taking my jacket off. Then I sat on my swing for a while. Looking up through the tree branches was a beautiful blue sky with some clouds passing by.
It's been a lovely day. The things on my list will just have to wait for another day.
Hope your day is happy and bright.
