An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. Henry David Thoreau
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

A day inside

 Didn't make it outside to walk this morning after all.
It was snowing, very windy, and 11 degrees.
Back down in the basement for walking today.

Stayed in the house the whole day.
Wrote out a couple of cards.
Changed around my kitchen window over the sink.
Took out all the blue bottles and put some plants there.
Left the mason jars.

Did some of the puzzle.
The bottom part is done and just have that hard part between
the sky and the town to do.

Read a bit too.

Didn't do much of anything else.
Just the normal stuff.
We did see the sun today but it stayed very cold and windy.

Not much to post about today.
Hope your Friday was a good one and you have a great weekend.
Thanks again for popping in for a visit.


There is nothing like walking to get the feel of a country. 
A fine landscape is like a piece of music; 
it must be taken at the right tempo. 
Even a bicycle goes too fast.

Mini Rowe Pottery

 Still icy in town so skipped my outside walk again and 
walked laps in the basement.
I remind my self that at least I can get my steps in that way
and there will be many days when I can walk outside!!

I have a small collection of Mini Rowe Pottery that I
thought you might like to see.
I bought the pieces one at a time from a little shop in Waldorf, Maryland 
when we lived there in the late 80's early 90's.

The pieces are just a couple to 3 inches tall and I just love them
because they are so cute.
When I bought them they were just a few dollars but some of them
are worth a lot more now.

The box of things to be shredded was getting full so I spent some
time this afternoon shredding.
I like doing it.

Nice to see some sunshine today and a little melting going on.
Supposed to get pretty cold overnight but will probably 
be able to walk outside.
Will have to wait and see how cold it gets.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Thursday

A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good 
for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult 
than all the medicine and psychology in the world.
