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

Some Bulls


On the way to town saw the twin fawns once again.
Started walking in town at 6:30 and the sun rose at 7:12.
It was cloudy during my walk but later in the morning it turned sunny.

Walked up and down the streets in town, both cemeteries and the ball park.

Lisa was out walking too.

Went down the farm road to the big barn to see the bulls which are all are down one end.

No modular house yet on the lot by the cemetery but now there is a big hole.

Years ago when we first moved here there was an empty house on the lot.
It was taken down and the lot sat there for some years till it was bought some time last year.
The house had a basement and when the house came down the basement was filled with some of the house debris and covered up.
As the years went by it settled and sunk a bit.
I met Kathy who bought the lot and she mentioned the depression in the yard and that is when I told her about the basement.
So I guess they had it dug up so they could see what was buried.

A pretty quiet Saturday morning around town.
It is great to be outside early in the morning and being part of the start of a new day.

Morning Walk Steps were 12,460

This morning I went to the library to meet the ladies for some needlework.
The name of the group is A Stitch in Time.
There were 5 of us there today.
I was knitting
Another crocheting
One quilting
Two embroidering 
I was going to bring some Welsh Cookies along but forgot all about making them.
Will try to remember for next week.

This is what I saw sitting out on my front porch this afternoon.

Happy Saturday and thanks for visiting.

The Story of the Desk


On the way to town I saw 6 deer all along the road down from my house.
Had to drive very slowly.
Also saw a couple of eyes glowing in the dark and it turned out to be a groundhog on the side of the road.

52 degrees this morning at 6:30 when I started walking.
Of course it was dark but once the sun rose at 7:11 there was a mix of sun and clouds.

I walked through town and made a stop to drop a book down the library book slot.
Continued walking down the main road till I got to the curve in the road and turned around after walking up this driveway a little ways.

Back through town I walked and kept going down the road toward home, turned around again and went back to town.

A few times I have found gloves along my walk and have put them on the posts along the road.
Someone always takes them off after a while.
One time I had 12 or so of them up before they were gone.
I've started again and today put the first glove up.

When I got back to town I walked around both of the cemeteries.
So nice to walk in the sunshine.

Didn't see anyone else out walking this morning.

Morning Walk Steps were 13,561.

Some of you mentioned the secretary desk pictured on yesterdays post.
There is a story to go along with the desk.
About 25 years ago we were living down state in Savage, Md and lived a block away from Savage Mill.
At the time we lived there it was mostly an antique mall and we would go there often.
I saw the old desk there one of those times and loved it.
So I stared saving my money and every so often would go to the mill to look at it.
One day Ken said, let's go walk around the mill.
We were walking around and of course I wanted to go look at 'my desk'.
Nearing the desk I saw a SOLD sign on it and a big red bow and was so disappointed and wasn't even going to go see it.
Ken kind of dragged me there and then told me it was he who bought it and we were there to pick it up.
I was so surprised and happy that it made me cry.
I've loved the desk even more since then. 🙂

Ginny and Deb mentioned the pictures on the wall.
The snow scene my mom gave us when we were first married and it has moved around with us these many years.

The other picture of the barn scene I got at an auction for a dollar about 10 years ago.

I've been making weave-it squares and I'm more than half done with Octobers baby blanket with only 4 more rows to do. (28 squares)

Happy Friday and thanks for visiting.

Sorry Tom I forgot to answer your question about the bowls. No, they are NOT Fiestaware, though I do have some.
