The sun trying to shine through the clouds this morning.
☀ ☀ ☀ ☀
Got a bit of a late start with my walk this morning and didn't leave until 7:50. It was 20 degrees and cloudy and just a slight breeze. I'm glad I left late though because around 8:30 the sun came out and I got to mostly walk in the sunshine. If I had walked at my usual time I would have been home by the time the sun was shining. I walked around town and the two cemeteries.
Walked up Barn Sale Road again but not all the way up the hill. I just walked to where I could see the cows and they were busy eating.
It was a nice walk and I'm happy to be enjoying my outside walks again. : )
The main street in my little town is only several blocks long and the speed limit goes down from 55 to 40 and in town to 25 . Most people slow down going through but there are some who fly right though town. A lot of mornings I see a noisy black pick-up truck go speeding right through town. This morning there was a state police behind him. The black truck tried going up the street that runs parallel to the main street but the cop followed him and I saw the lights go on. Sure enough the truck got pulled over and he got a ticket. I know it is not a very Christian attitude but I was happy that he got a ticket. May tomorrow he will slow down.
I walked my usual 6.2 miles.

I forgot to mention yesterday that The Third Hill North of Town was the first book I've read this year. I've gotten a bit of a slow start this year but my goal is to read 50 books.
I had a very nice surprise out of the blue in the mail today thanks to Karen, one of my blogger friends. She sent me the book, It's a God Thing volume 2. Thank you so much Karen. That is so nice of you and I was very surprised, just ask Ken. : )
A while back Karen sent me the book It's a God Thing. She had reviewed it on her blog and I said I'd like to read the book and the next thing I knew she mailed it to me and the book was mine. I'm looking forward to reading volume 2. Thanks again Karen.
It was a nice day at home. Did a some work, knitted a bit and started another book. It's a library book and Ken just finished it, so I have to read this one next because it's due next week. It's called Killing Jesus a history by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. It is a history book about the times when Jesus lived, his death and resurrection.
Soon it will be snack time and my ice cream flavor tonight will be chocolate chip mint. I'll knit some more on the sweater as we watch the old movie, 12 Angry Men.
Hope your day has been a good one and you smiled often.

A vigorous five-mile walk
will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult
that all the medicine and psychology in the world.
