Today I went around the mostly frozen lake and walked 6.3 miles. Not many people out on this cold Monday morning, but they are saying warmer weather should arrive on Wednesday. Some of the regular walkers I know walk the Mall when the weather is cold. I've tried that, but it just doesn't work for me. I NEED to be outside walking. I could never live anywhere where the whole winter was too cold for outside walking.
Jackie brought over some delicious corn bread she had made which went so good with the chili. She also made honey butter with a touch of cinnamon in it that was delicious too.
Cheryl and Rob brought these beautiful flowers for us.The vase that I've put them in belonged to my gramma. When my dad was a little boy he bought the vase for his mom her birthday for 25 cents!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Ken once had a beautiful HO train layout that he had made in the garage at the old house. He tore it all down when we moved.
He wasn't sure if he wanted to build another one here but he has gotten the urge to build another one.
He started building some bench work for it and here's what he's done so far.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I found a pattern for little mitts without thumbs for the preemie babies for Bonnie's project. I made this pair this afternoon. They are very easy and quick to do. I'll be making these instead of the little slippers which aren't needed.
I got a little cleaning done, laundry and ironing.
Now it's time for a little reading.
I hope your Monday was a good start to the new week and someone made you smile today.
If you are tempted to lose patience with others,
stop and think how patient God has been with you.
