Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Crochet Hooks

Was at town and walking at 6:30.
It was 25 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds.
A bit on the breezy side too.
Sunrise 6:48

First I walked back down the road I just drove up.
Turned down the street that leads to my street a ways, turned around here

and walked back to town.
By this time I had walked just over 5000 steps.

Stopped at the Jeep to pick up a DVD and then over to the 
library to drop it down the slot.

Next made my way over to the industrial park, which is here
on the left.
Walked all around in there.

By the time I got back to the Jeep I had taken 13,049 steps
and that was the end of my morning walk.
Never made it around the cemeteries and the ball park.

No others about but there were workers at one of the new houses
working inside putting in insulation.
Seems like it's taken forever to get these two house done and for sale.


This morning after breakfast we made a trip down to Oakland
to do a couple of errands and went to WalMart.
First time for Ken getting out after his surgery.
He is doing fine and feels pretty much back to normal.
He just can't lift anything over 10 pounds for a few more days.

Never did find the crochet hook that I have somewhere around here
so bought a pack of three of them at Walmart.
Size G H I
Looking forward to learning how to make granny squares tomorrow.
I'll let you know how I do.

I have two new knitting projects started.
A scarf 
and Aprils baby blanket.

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by.

Comment Replies:
Quite a few comments about me ripping out the pink shawl. Since I don't like it, it is something that I wouldn't want to give to someone.  I'd much rather have the yarn to knit something else.

Pink Shawl

 This morning it was 24 degrees, windy, and cloudy when I first got
to town at 6:40.
Snow flurries the whole time I walked but just floating around
on the wind.
Eventually the sun came out and then a mix of sun and clouds.
Sunrise 6:50

Found a quarter

A cold crisp morning for walking with a few icy places.

Walked over to the ball park first and went around there a few times.
Then up and down the main road and the side streets.

Also walked around both of the cemeteries.

I was surprised to see all the chickens out in the cold.
Thought they'd be inside their coop.

Nothing happening around town, very quiet.

I had a request to make pancakes for breakfast so I did.

Finally got some house work done for this week.

I finished the pink shawl I was knitting but don't like it.
Kind of blah looking all one color.
I'm probably going to rip it out and reuse the yarn.

It ended up being a nice sunny day, though there was still a bit of
wind and in the 20's.

That's all I have for today.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed your Thursday.
