Good Fences and Lunch Out

I'm linking up today with Good Fences.
Not a fence today, but I'm thinking a railing is a fence for stairs. 😊
🐝     🐝     🐝     🐝
 A misty 55 degrees this morning on my walk.
Since it wasn't all that warm I wore my rain pants and yellow slicker.
No kind of a route today at all.  Walked all over in a crazy pattern of streets.
I don't think I could repeat it if I tried!!
 Started out with a mist, kind of cleared up and then rained again.

The guy that I see sometimes was out running around the ball park loop.
He runs around it 5 times.
Once in a while I see a woman walking who whenever she sees me
turns and goes another way.  She was walking today, and again she went another way.  
I did wave and say good morning to her.  She must be very shy but I'm hoping one of these days she'll pass by and say hi.  

Walked 6.2 miles.

Home in the morning.
We went out just before lunch and stopped at the library
to pick up a book that was on hold for me.
Had to go to the post office to mail off a couple things.

We've been meaning to try a new cafe over in Grantsville.
Well it's not new anymore, its been open for a year.
Anyway we decided to go there for lunch today.
We were pleasantly surprised with how nice it all was
and the food was very good too.
The Cornucopia Cafe
We sat in the back by large windows overlooking a nice grassy area 
and farther down you could see the river.
There are tables out on the deck out back and I look forward to 
going back on a day where we can sit outside.
There is a B & B next door and down behind that a lovely shop
that we looked around in.
There are three floors and I gave Ken a few ideas on some Christmas presents. 
It's one of those shops that you see all kinds of things that you
would love to have but don't need.
Today he bought me a pair of earrings.
The porch of the shop was decorated for fall and looked so pretty.

There was also a gourmet shop and an old cottage that looked like was being
fixed up to use I'm thinking for another shop of some kind.
The other little shop that caught my eye was an ice cream one.
Didn't by any ice cream  (Too full after lunch)
but I loved the sign that hung on a building pointing the way to the shop.
Sometimes these unplanned little outings are so nice and this was one of them.
When I got back home I made some Zucchini Bread.
 Yes, with zucchini out of my garden.
Off to fold some laundry and then it will be supper time.
Had to hang clothes inside today, it's been periods of on and off rain,
some quite heavy at times.

A happy day to you.

A few people mentioned the old house in yesterdays post.
I've heard but not sure if it is true, that a woman who is in a nursing home owns it and and refuses to let the family sell it. 
Robin - No, haven't looked in the windows.  Doesn't seem to be a window that I can look in.  Most are too high up and the lower ones are blocked.  I don't want to walk on the porch because it doesn't seem safe.

Most of you know that my step-dad died in June.
Today is his birthday,  he would have been 86.

My mom had another fall the other day.  
They thought she broke her tail bone.
She didn't break that bone but some other small bone in that area
on the same side as her broken hip and leg last year.
So now she can't walk for 6 weeks and is not doing very well.
  My prayer for her now is that she goes home to heaven some night
peacefully in her sleep.
It is what she wants.

A cool morning

Farmer Marvin moving logs
🚜     🚜     🚜     🚜
The chillest morning so far this autumn, 40 degrees when I started out walking.
Once the sun rose it was sunny but later clouded up.

Went first to the laundromat and then the post office to take down
the church event fliers that I had put up a couple of weeks ago.

Then continued my walk all over town, no special route today.
 Took this walking up Sale Barn Rd.
  There are a couple of old houses on the main road in town
slowing going back to nature.
This one now has bushes starting to grow inside the window.
 Didn't see any people about today.
One little rabbit was at the cemetery.
Pretty quiet around town.
Walked 6.5 miles.
🚶     🚶     🚶     🚶 
Home for part of the morning and then we went out to get a few errands done.
Had some lunch while we were out too.

In the afternoon Ken went up to Happy Trails and I had to stay home and get some things done around the house.

I put some Hot Italian sausages in the slow cooker this morning.
Then for supper I cooked up the bell peppers from our garden
with a couple of onions.  Then added the sausages for just a few minutes
to get them browned and that was our supper.
Ken's dad used to make this for me because it is one of my favorite
meals and I always think of him when we make it.  : )

A happy day to you.

Lisa - Actually what you thought was a 'corn field' is cattails around the little town pond with mist on top of the water.  : )

44 degrees and some low hanging clouds around this morning when I walked.
Today was a short walk of only 3.5 miles and I walked around town.
Didn't see anyone else out walking.
A V of geese flew over head.
 A couple more pictures from my walk.

🚶     🚶     🚶     🚶
We left for a special event at church and left right after breakfast.
That was over at 12:45 and we headed over to the bowling alley
after that for our Tuesday bowling.
There were seven of us today.
Pretty good bowing day for me.
154, 152 and 130.

Not much time for blogging today so this is a short post.
Told you I'd post a picture of the new truck yesterday.
Here it is.
A happy day to you.
happyone 🎈
