Walked the Farm Loop today and it was as nice as it always is. : )
As I was walking a baby deer come running out of the corn field on one side of the road, ran across the road and into the corn field on the other side. It all happened in a few seconds. At first I thought it was a dog because it was so small. Never did see the mother or the little one again.
Back in town I walked around the ball park and a loop around town.
Once again I saw Kathy and the man walking his big white dog.
Walked 6.2 miles.
✿ ✿ ✿ ✿Ken worked out back on the stone patio in the morning when the shade was there. I did a couple loads of laundry and made a couple of things in the kitchen. I got a meatloaf for supper into the slow cooker. Nice to make it that way so I don't have to turn on the oven. Also made some spinach and bean soup for tomorrow.
Kim, and anyone else who is interested, here's the recipe for the Three Bean Salad I made yesterday.
Three Bean Salad
Can cut green beans
Can cut wax yellow beans
Can dark red kidney beans
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/3 cup salad oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Drain all cans of beans and combine beans.
Add green pepper.
Combine sugar, vinegar, and salad oil.
Pour over vegetables.
Add salt and pepper, toss.
Chill for a least a few hours.
I was planning on staying home this afternoon and getting some house cleaning done but Ken was going up to Happy Trails and I really wanted to go with him. So he said, "Come on with me, do the cleaning another day." So I went up to HP too. : )
We crushed more rock and then went looking for some more nice flat rocks for the patio. There is just a little bit more of the patio to do now. Maybe with these rocks we found today, we will have enough.
Some bee balm up at HT.
When we got home I made some mashed potatoes to go with the meatloaf and some beets too.
So that's been my day so far.
Hope your day was a happy one.
