I am thankful for cold crisp sunny mornings.
The kind with bright blue skies that make you happy to be alive and out walking. : )

Only 27 degrees this morning but oh what a crisp clear one it was. Love mornings like these for walking. The sun was shining and nary a breeze was blowing. So out I went with my old pedometer making sure it was clipped on to my pants just right and that it was snapped closed. Otherwise it won't record. The Striiv is nice because you can just put it in your pocket and not worry about it. I sure am glad to have my old one as back up though.
Walked all over town and around the two cemeteries. The cemetery up on the left is one of two that I walk pass but they are too small to have a path through them.
Came upon a man this morning walking down the center of town who asked if there was a shelter near here. He was from Texas and hitchhiking to Iowa. Told him no but if he wanted to warm up for a bit, that just up the road was a laundromat that was nice and warm. Don't know if he went there for a while but didn't see him again.
Saw a few of these ice puddles around which I think are kind of neat looking.
Saw some more geese flying in their V formations and a lot of crows all over town.
My pedometer showed I walked 6 miles. I think it is off by a tenth every mile so I could have walked as much as 6.6 miles.

Ken went up to Happy Trails today and I decided to stay home. While cleaning I baked some bread, made macaroni salad, and baked some chocolate chip cookies.
I finished reading Southern Storm, the second book in the Cape Refuge series by Terri Blackstock. I thought it was very good and later today I'll start the third book, The River's Edge.
Hope your day has been filled with sunshine and some happiness scattered about.
