Some hay bales at Farmer Bill's farm
☺ ☺ ☺ ☺
I left the house this morning for my walk at 6:30 and sunrise was at 7:11. It was a warm 47 degrees, breezy with sun and clouds. Perfect walking weather.
I enjoyed my walk around the Farm Loop this morning. It's been a while since I went that route. One day soon these fields will have corn growing tall.
Neither the cows or the horses were anywhere to be seen but I did see rabbits, ducks, and birds - Killdeer, Robins, and Red Winged Black birds.
I left early enough so I didn't encounter all the cars and school buses along this road which leads back to town.
Once back in town I walked once around the two cemeteries and the ball park. Saw Kathy again walking around one of the cemeteries. We commented on the beautiful walking weather today.
I walked 6.5 miles.

No post yesterday because I took the day off from walking, exercising and blogging. Just needed a day off.
This morning we left in Ken's car,
and came home in our new Equinox.
It looks black but it is really a dark blue
called Velvet Blue.
Ken drove it part way home and I drive it the rest of the way. It had just started to rain when I pulled in the driveway. It rides and drives really nice and we are very happy with it. : ) Every one at the dealership was friendly and it was a very pleasant buying experience.
For a while we've been thinking about getting another car and today we finally made our decision and traded Ken's car in for the Equinox. The Corvette just isn't a very practical car living here. The truck is a work truck and we will drive around here in the new car. It's an all wheel drive which you really need here. I'm keeping my corvette though and will drive it during the non snow months. I just couldn't give mine up.
I've started reading Outlander and LIKE it.
Hope your Thursday has been a happy day and you smiled often.
happyone : )
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness,
making everything in its vicinity
freshen in to smiles.
