I had such a nice time today with my friend Nola. She is another walker and we met while walking where I used to live. She is also the one I made a ripple afghan for. Since I have moved we have been trying to get together and this was the day. I finally got to give her the afghan. She certainly was surprised and nearly cried.
Nola came over the house a little before 11:00. She got the house tour which took a little over an hour because we stopped so many times to talk!!
After the house tour we walked up the street to LeeLynn's and had lunch. She had chicken and I had the crispy eggplant. I love everything I eat there. We stayed there about 1 1/2 hours just talking and catching up. Back to the house again for a little while and then she left for home.
I left then to pick up my granddaughter Taryn and took her to work. As we were driving down the road we spotted her brother Antonio with a few of his friends and gave them a toot and a wave as we drove by.
After dropping Taryn off, I went over to the old house to get the mail and check things out. I really need to get over there and mow the lawn again. Earlier I had told Nola I would be in town and for her to stop by if she wanted to look through some books I have there and that she could have any that she wanted. Nola came over and picked out a bagful. You would think we would have been all talked but that wasn't the case and we must have talked for another hour. When Nola walked home I left for home too.
I had the bird bath and feeder out on the deck out back and now that the birds have arrived they make such a mess - seeds all over the deck and I didn't want them around when I have my clothes hanging out. So I put them both out in the front. I can sit on my front stoop and watch the birds there. Hopefully I'll get a few pictures.
The chicks and hens that I have in the strawberry pots are really doing well!! I think those things will grow anywhere!!
Well, it's just about 8:00 and time for my snack and a couple episodes of Fraiser. I'm thinking tonight it will be 4 chocolate chip cookies. I'll probably knit on the blue ripple afghan. I was going to keep this one for myself but I know someone who really likes blue and I'm making it for her. It's someone who reads my blog so I can't say who it's for yet. Maybe it's you! :-)
I hope whatever you did today that you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed mine.
Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
