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 Rainy Day

A rainy morning for my walk today around the lake. The rain keeps most people inside so I saw few people. Every once in a while its nice to walk in the rain and hear the rain drops on your umbrella and in the trees. People just don't know what they are missing by giving up their walk just because of a little rain.
Here's a couple pictures of the lake in the rain.
The rain and cool weather lasted all day long and I was glad that I didn't have to go anywhere. It was nice to spend the day at home.
I did very little cleaning! I spent most of the day reading. I'm reading two books, and I looked through a couple of the sewing books trying to decide what I would make first when I get my sewing machine.

I did some knitting too on the baby blanket and I have just about run out of yarn. I'll have to buy some more because I'm only about half finished.

I missed Flash Forward last week so I went on line and watched that episode this afternoon. Now I'm off to watch the episode for this week.

My snack tonight will be an ice cream sandwich or maybe two. :-)

That's about it for today.
I hope you had a happy Thursday!

Cold & rainy here today too. I have 4 flats of pansies to plant, but the ground is saturated. Hopefully it will clear up over the weekend.
I love ice cream sandwiches. Hope you enjoyed yours.

Miserable day. I stayed in near hearth and fire!

I'm glad you were happy at home today. I'm going to read my book now and put this day to rest!

I have Flash Forward recorded. I love watching the shows after they've aired, without commercials. I'm glad you watched what you had missed online. Isn't it great that way? Especially with your very large monitor!

Hope your Friday is an equally good day :)

so cold and rainy everywhere . I am still waiting for fall. It is more like winter out. Stay warm.

A walk in the rain does sound like fun. I haven't done that in a while but I'll have to give it a try soon. Enjoy your cool weather. It was about 90 degrees here today but cooling down tomorrow. Can't wait!

The weather has changed course here too.... I am not thinking of rain but still keeping my fingers crossed......

My day today is passing quickly and I haven't accomplished anything..lol..how does that happen? Too many phone calls.

I see from your header photo that your trees have turned so beautifully! What a pretty photo!

Enjoy the rainy weekend :-)

I only watched the first fastforward . Because I am a survivor fan. But I flip back and forth when a commerical comes on.
I love the rain. And if it is warm I love walking in the rain. But hate the cold rain and that is all we have had all week. Have a great weekend.
