♡ ♡ ♡ ♡62 degrees this morning and foggy. I walked through town and up Barn Sale Road which is where I took the picture on the left here. It is quite a hill to walk up but nice coming down. I saw good number of goldfinches and two bobolinks along this stretch.
It was kind of neat walking in the fog. I could see the sun trying to get through the fog and at times I was walking in a patch of filtered sun surrounded by the fog. It was like the sun was a spotlight and it was shining on me as I walked. Really cool.
I walked around town some too. It was a quiet morning and so nice to be out walking. Behind the ball park I spotted this on the ground and snapped a picture of it. It seemed appropriate to take a picture because today is my birthday. : )
I walked 6.2 miles.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡The cake Ken made yesterday was my birthday cake and oh boy what a cake it is. He has made this for me, more years than I can remember and it is just as special every single time. Dark chocolate and it has four layers. In between the layers is chocolate pudding and strawberry jam. Look at the good stuff oozing out.
Then it is covered in real whipped cream.
Lunch today was birthday cake.
In stead of going out for dinner I chose to go out for breakfast at Annie's Kitchen here in town to have a birthday chocolate chip pancake. That's some pancake isn't it? And yes I ate the whole thing. : )
While we were at Annie's in walks Kathie (artist from yesterday) and her husband. We talked for a bit. She is one of 30 artists from around the country that have come to the area to paint local scenes and are having an event in Cumberland this weekend. I would love to go but don't think we will have time this weekend, but will try. They are leaving the area on Monday.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡I walked to the library to pick up another book that was on hold for me. Susan was working there today and introduced me to another librarian who has just started working there. A young woman by the name of Krystle who seems very nice.
The fog burned off by lunch time and after lunch I went outside do to some work in the yard and garden. Planted the rest of the plants.
Back inside to make some Sweet Potato Chili and baked some Corn Bread and Chocolate Chippers for tomorrow.
Now I'm off to mow the lawn. I'll be around later to visit you.
Hope your day has been sunny and bright.
happyone : )
If you're wondering how old I am now - I don't mind telling my age - it is 63.

A birthday is just the first day of another 365 day journey around the sun.
Enjoy the trip.
