I am thankful for all the different sounds I hear.
These are some of my favorites.
Rain drops on an umbrella
A baby's laugh
The wind blowing through a corn field
Water falling over stones in a stream
The church bells in town
The crackle of logs in a fire

This morning on my walk it was nice and calm with nary a breeze. It was sunny too but it was still chilly at 16 degrees. Not long after I got home the clouds came rolling in and that was the last of I saw of the sun today. Nice to have it to walk in though.
I walked over to the laundromat and took down the poster that I put up inviting people to church to see the chalk drawings. Then continued down the road to the industrial park and walked around in there.
This road is at a dead end at one of the roads and I always want to walk down it but it is on someone's land and I don't want to trespass, but it always looks so inviting.
I've been watching a new huge barn being built on a farm at the edge of town. There are four parts to it.
Walked back to town and finished my walk around there. This tree that has had all its branches cut off reminds me of a totem pole.
Early Saturday mornings are quieter than usual around here and I didn't see anyone else out at all and hardly any cars passed either.
I found a dime. : )
Walked 6.4 miles.

It was a good time to go shopping at Walmart last night after church. We got there at 8:30 and there were hardly any people there and the shelves were well stocked getting reading for today.
Today we went to the Dollar General where I picked up some Tide Pods that were on sale. I love these little pods that you just pop in the washing machine. No measuring to do and I get more loads washed this way. When using the liquid Tide I tend to just add a little bit more for good measure.
We had to replenish our ice cream supply too. The Shop and Save have really good ice cream sales and we stock up when they have sales. So nice having that extra freezer in the garage.
This afternoon I've started reading another book. I'm back to reading the Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber. I'm on book number seven, 7 Seaside Avenue.
It's been a dreary looking day but a good one never the less.
Hope your Saturday is a good one too.
A happy day to you.

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
