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

Why ask

Started the day as usual with a morning walk. Walked 6.5 miles through the woods along the river. Not many people out which was surprising since it was so nice out.

Stayed home and got things done around the house. I cleaned the upstairs, ironed Ken's shirts, and baked some chocolate chip cookies. I will be spending some time tomorrow with my two oldest grandkids and the cookies are for them.

Last week I got an email from Sharon at the library who is in charge of the volunteer programs. As some of you may know I've been wanting to take books to and from the library for people who can't get there themselves. I have done this for a few people in the past and just can't seem to get started doing it again. It seems there is not such a great need for this service around here or maybe it's Sharon not being able to get anything organized. Anyway Sharon said she had some one who wanted to receive books and asked me if I could meet her at Mrs C's house sometime this week. I gave her two days that would be good. Monday afternoon and any time today Tuesday. I get an email from her late this afternoon asking if I could meet her there tomorrow at 11:00. Why did she bother asking me what day was good? If she told me a day I would have planned my week around when it was good for her. I had to tell her no I had other plans.

The chocolate ice cream yesterday was pretty good with the hard shell on it but not as good as we thought it would be. We don't have any chocolate chip so I'm going to pass on the ice cream tonight. There are still two pieces of pumpkin pie left and I think I'll have one of those later.

A Six Feet Under Netflix came in the mail today so we will watch an episode of that depressing show. I'll knit some more on Nola's afghan while watching that and then read. I'm more than half way finished with Nola's afghan. :-)

That's about it for this Tuesday and I hope it was a Happy One for you!

That is such a nice thing for you to want to do for people who can't get to the library. It sounds like maybe Sharon is a bit disorganized??

Seems as if the service that you are offering would be a valuable one indeed. I hope that it works out eventually.

Wasn't yesterday mild and beautiful? I'm allowing myself to fantasize about an entire winter of such temps and conditions.

Isn't it frustrating when you offer your assist and others can't get their act together...??!!

I found the empty Pumpkin Pie plate in the sink this morning...someone had a late night snack:))

I would love to see your afghan your knitting...I too knit, but haven't done much this past year:/

Some folks just never hear you answer the question that THEY ask.

The townhouse is really looking nice. Before long it will be ready for the big move. I can only imagine how excited you and hubby must be.

I thought about you today when I read this blog:


Love you, Pamie

It's encouraging to know that some people are still reading books. It's good of you to help them out.
