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

Five pennies and ice cream
I started off the week and the month of December by walking 6 miles under cloudy skies but with a mild temperature of 48 degrees. I picked up 5 lucky pennies that I found along the way too. A good start to the day. By the time I left for Meals on Wheels the sun was trying to come out and it did make it through the big billowy white and gray clouds some of the time while I was out. All of my eight people were fine and happy today. They all are so thankful to have these meals and a little visit. Some of these people really have a rough time of it and they all greet me with a smile. I feel lucky to know them and to be a small part of their lives. Once home I had the last of the left overs from Thanksgiving for lunch - thank goodness!! In the afternoon it got real dark, rained, hailed and then the sun and clouds came back.
