Bloggers Meet

🌳     🌳
Walked out the garage door and it started raining so turned around 
 went back in and picked up my umbrella and then went walking.  
64 degrees and it rained on and off during all of my walk.  
The umbrella went up and down quite a few times.

Walked behind my house, through town, up Barn Sale, down
toward Happy Trails, around both cemeteries and back home.

Didn't see any one else out in the rain.

Saw the usual rabbits and some very young ones.
A few killdeers were around by the town pond. 

Walked 6.2 miles
Found a penny  😊
🌳     🌳
9:30 this morning I got in my car and drove to Whispering Pines
in Spring, Pa which is only about 18 miles from my house. 
I went there to meet two blogger friends.
That's Melanie on the left and Dianna on the right.
Dianna and I met through blogging and we have become 'in person'
friends too.  Melanie and I are also blogging friends and she is visiting Dianna
so the three of us planned to meet at Whispering Pines.
It was so nice to finally meet Melanie and the three of us had a great
time talking and laughing.  As with all bloggers friends I've met it is
like meeting an old friend. 
We had lunch at The Dawdy Haus which is a little cafe at the store.

The three of us bought a few little goodies from the store.
I got these cute measuring cups.
A kind employee at the store was nice enough to take pictures of us
with three different cameras. 
Those few hours went by very fast and soon it was time to head back home.

I should have done some work when I got home but I didn't do a thing.
Got a little reading done and put out bird seed for the birds.
Had supper and now here I am.

Life is Good
 A happy day to you.

⛅     ⛅
55 degrees again this morning.  Started out sunny but then clouded up 
and there were a few rain drops but they didn't amount to anything.
The rest of the day was a mix of rain, clouds, and sun.

My walk today was around town going up and down all the streets.
Went a ways up Barn Sale, toward HT, around the cemeteries and
the ball park loop.

The building the car dealer is putting up is coming along and they
are working on it most days and looks like it will be done soon.
Kathy was out walking but I saw her far away and she didn't see me.

Lots of cows back in the pasture up Barn Sale but
they were too busy eating to take notice of me.  

Walked 6.1 miles
⛅     ⛅
Right after breakfast we headed over to church.  It was time for me
to weed the little garden by the radio station. 
Looks so much better after a little weeding.
Planted some marigolds there too.
Should have taken a picture but didn't think of it.
  Ken was busy getting the church trailer ready for another trip to
pick up more scriptures to put together for next month.

Ken dropped my off home and he went up to HT.
I weeded the vegetable garden and then came inside and
made Rhubarb Cobbler with the rhubarb out of the garden.

Had a quick supper and then I walked over to the
library for a session of coloring.
 I was the only one who showed up but enjoyed coloring anyway.
The two librarians colored too and took turns when someone needed help
at the desk.
 Would have taken a picture of my picture but didn't finish it
so I will have to finish it next time.
Ken picked me up and we went to church for Wednesday Prayer Meeting. 

Home now and will be nice to sit in my chair and have some of that
Rhubarb Cobbler.

A happy day to you.

PomPom - The cabin is a good distance away from the house so we will still use it as a little getaway.  It will make a nice guest cabin for visitors.  If it is too rugged for quests, they can have the house and Ken and I will stay in the cabin.  I'm thinking my Son, David will love staying in the cabin.  Maybe he'll be by for more visits. 😊

Vee - Yes, I have a day goal of steps and keep my Striiv in my pocket ALL the time.  I keep track on a web site with other walkers and I've joined a challenge for the year to walk at least 15,017 steps a day.  As of today I'm in 7th place out of 72.

Art - Yes, when the house is built we will live there full time and sell the house in town.

A day at Happy Trails

🐄     🐄
It was a delightful 55 degrees this morning and sunny at 6:30 when I
left on my walk.
People often ask me what is my favorite walking weather and today was it.
In the 40's or 50's is perfect for me and I'd rather
walk in the cold than when it is hot.

First walked to the post office and mailed off a few cards down the mail slot.
Then walked the Farm Loop and once I got back to town I made
a loop around town and one of the cemeteries and then home.
 Some one stopped and asked me where the Veterinarian's office  was in town.
Had to tell him there wasn't one, at least none that I know about and
I've walked up and down these streets quite a few times. 😊

Walked 6.3 miles

Right after breakfast we both headed up to Happy Trails and spent the day there.
I got a second coat of paint on the cabin floor.
We put up gutters on the back of the cabin.
Painted some boards for shelves and another for a piece of outside trim
and Ken nailed it up.
Lunch time we ate sandwiches out on the picnic table.

After lunch we went down to where the house is going to be.
We have it all marked out with yellow rope.
We stood in all the different rooms in the house, stood on the porch,
and in the garage.  Someday we won't have to imagine it. 😊

We did a lot of walking around up there, no problem meeting my
 step goal for the day!!
We got back home about 4:00, got cleaned up and I just didn't
feel like cooking so we hopped in the car and went to Brenda's for supper.

It's been a good day.
Life if Good
A happy day to you.
happyone  🎈

FG - the picture from yesterday is weeds growing by a rusty guard rail along the road.

Vee - Oh yes,  I helped with the design of the house.  Mostly telling him what I wanted and him making it so.
