I've been walking around each morning exploring and walking on new paths that I find. I've been trying to map out some basic routes to walk. I have connected up a bunch of paths today and mapped out a route that is 6.5 miles. Lots of variety on this route. I walk some on the roads, then walk down one path behind houses on one side and meadow type land on the other, then woods and a stream. I come out of the path and walk on the road a bit and then take another path which leads to a school, walk to the other side and take another path to a road. Walk the roads a while and then take another path through the woods and along the river. Back out to the road and walk to the pool and walk along part of the first path again and home.
I came across this round-a-bout today in a playground by the pool. I haven't seen one of these in years. I remember having lots of fun playing on these things when I was a kid. Running around and around holding on and then jumping on it.
I have my father's old tool box from when he was a machinist. I was going to clean it up and paint it but decided just to keep it old looking and I put it on the floor in the pantry to use as a kind of junk drawer. I keep some basic tools, like a hammer, screwdriver and wrench in it. Also some nails, shoe laces, old keys, tacks and other stuff like that. I think that I found a good use for it.
Another stay at home day for me. It started snowing as I was getting home this morning, but I'm happy to say it warmed up and turned to rain. Couldn't hang any clothes out side today! I had to make due with my inside lines.
The other day I bought a couple more stamps for making cards and today I made a birthday card for my friend Bernice.
I worked on my needlepoint and though it's slow going I'm just about done with the sky - two colors of blue and the white clouds.
I ate up the last 4 chocolate chip cookies this evening while watching Faulty Towers.
That's about it for another day.
Hope your Wednesday was a Happy One. :-)
