A foggy start

🐝     🐝     🐝
The morning started off quite foggy with a temperature of 50 degrees.

Walked the roads behind my house and then straight through town and up
Barn Sale a ways.  
Down toward Happy Trails and then back to town.
Around both cemeteries and the ball park loop.

Gail was out walking but our paths didn't cross.  Saw her far away 
from where I was.

Coming back to town the fog was burning off.
And by the time I got home the sun was full out.
Walked 6.3 miles

Finished the set of dish cloths for Tricia and will give them to her
tonight at church.
Ken went up to Happy Trails first thing this morning and I stayed home.
Did a couple loads of laundry and got them out on the line,
did a couple of things around the house and then went outside.

Ken came home for lunch and we took a break and then he went
back to HT and I continued weeding one of the front gardens.
I am happy to say I finished it.
Then marked out with the rake where I want the paths in the garden.
 I am taking pictures and will post them when it is finished.

It was like a summers day, lots of bright sunshine and in the 70's.
My clothes were dried in to time.  I bet faster than if I had a dryer.

Have supper cooking in the oven and it should be done soon so
that's it for today.

Hope your day was a happy one.

Rose - Yes, the barn from the previous post was a barn along my walk.  There are many barns I pass. : )

Barn Collective

Linking up with the Barn Collective series over at Tom's blog.

This morning the temperature was 42 degrees and there was a drizzly
rain during all of my walk and the last couple of miles a gusty wind kicked up.

Not much going on around town this morning and I didn't see anyone
else out walking or running.

Walked behind my house and all over town up and down all the streets.

Walked 6.2 miles
Found a penny 😊

Home in the morning and then after lunch we went and had the
oil changed in the truck.
Thought about staying home but went to keep Ken company.
Afterward we stopped in at Walmart to pick up a couple of things.

Knitted when we got back home.
I'm knitting some more dish cloths - a set of 4 for my friend Tricia.
And no, Tricia you may NOT pay me for them. 😊
I've finished 2 of them and will make another one tonight.

Took chicken out of the freezer for supper but it was still frozen
so it I thought it was a good idea to go to Brenda's for
half price pizza and a salad.
Guess who was there?  Gail who walks in the mornings too.
She stopped at our table and we met her husband Mel.  He's been waving to
me for a couple of years on his way to work when he passes me walking
in the morning.  Nice to meet him.

I'll be reading some more of my book a little later.
Glad to hear you like Louise Penny Kim.

That's been my Monday.
It's been a rainy dreary day but still it was a good one.
A happy day to you.
happyone 🍭

Patti - I have no idea what is moving into the bakery but I sure am curious and will keep you posted.  Yes, I sleep 😊.  Bedtime is about 11:30 and I'm usually up by 6:30 and out the door walking.  Morning walks really do give you energy!!

Dianna - Yes, the house in Saturday's post is the Drane House and it is here in town just a mile from my house.  If you click on the DraneHouse link below the posts you can read about it.

It was 49 degrees and cloudy when I left the house.
When I got to the end of the driveway it started raining so I went back
inside and put on my rain pants and yellow slicker and started out again.
A mile later it stopped raining and didn't rain for the rest of my walk.
(Did rain later in the day)

Walked over to the post office and mailed a letter down the slot.
Then walked all over town, the cemeteries and the ball park loop.

Once in a while I see a blue bird by the cemetery, today was one of those days.

Work continues on the old bakery.  It now has a new door and windows 
and the inside is just an empty shell.  
They only people I saw out this early Saturday morning were 5
men fishing at the town pond.

Walked 6 miles

Couldn't get outside to work in the garden because of the rain so we decided
to get in the car and go over to Uniontown.
 Stopped and had lunch while were there too.

In the afternoon when we were home again I made some
Welsh Cookies.

Did some reading and also knitted a bit.  Just about
finished with a dish/wash cloth for a friend with the new yarn
I bought the other day.  Will finish it later and start on the second one
with another color that I bought today.

Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone  🍭

Adam - The actual stone doesn't cost all that much.  It is the delivery charge that costs the money.

Aritha -  The book I'm reading now is Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny.
