☁ ☁ ☁ ☁Strange weather we're having. It was a warm 44 degrees and not a breeze to be found this morning when I went for my walk. It was foggy and a light misty rain was falling. A lot of the snow has melted. Still it was nice to be able to get outside again and walk.
I walked a few loops around town. Walked up by the one cemetery and then down to the Drane House and on the way back up the hill a big white dirty dog was standing in the middle of the road barking at me. So I backed up and went back down to the Drane House and walked back to the main road on Farmer Marvin's farm road. That is where I took the picture above.
A couple of pictures from different directions of the town pond.
Besides the usual crows I saw some sparrows around too. Really haven't seen many birds around at all. Sometimes I miss all the wild life I used to see around the lake where I used to live. Still over all I like walking around here better.
I walked 6.2 miles.
☁ ☁ ☁ ☁Sunday is my turn for baking cookies for the kids at Sunday School and since this week is Valentine's Day I thought I'd make them heart cookies with icing.
This morning I spent in the kitchen making sugar cookies. I made two batches of 2 dozen each which gives me 48 cookies and I need to bring 60 so still have to make another batch. Couldn't today because I ran out of butter. I got the recipe from my blogger friend Karen at Karen's Ramblings. She shared the recipe HERE and they really are the best sugar cookies I've ever had.
Here are the ones I made today.
Karen's cookies are little works of art and she has just starting selling them on Esty so if you love cookies and don't have the time to make them you can buy them from Karen HERE. They taste as good as they look too. I know because she once sent me some. : )
It took me a while to clean up the kitchen because I sure do make a mess when I bake!! I can just imagine the mess I'm going to make when I do the icing. : )
I read a while this afternoon and will probably finish my book later this evening.
Saturday evening I knitted the little preemie baby hat for Trish and was able to give it to her Sunday at church.
That's it for today.
Hope you day as been a good one and you smiled often.
happyone : )
