Sunset 8:02Today the weather has turned hot and humid again so I was quite hot walking this morning. On the way to the lake on the path along the stream I came across this toad sitting in the middle of the path. He is about the size of my fist. He sat perfectly still while I took pictures of him.
Here are the two best ones.
The lake had a mist over it and the water was so calm it looked like a sheet of glass. I saw many of my walking friends and stopped to talk to a couple of them. I heard more about the accident that happened along the road by the park last week. A garbage truck hit a car. As I heard that I remembered a while back Ken telling me when he left for work one morning and was stopped at the light, a garbage truck came flying down the hill, with the horn blowing and sailed right through the red light. Looked like the truck had no breaks. I'm wondering if it was that same truck because it was around the same time and the accident was just up the road at the next light!
I also saw a butterfly sitting on the sidewalk. It too sat there and let me take pictures. I posted one of them on my photo blog today. If you would like to see it click HERE.
I walked 6.3 miles this morning.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The first thing I did today after breakfast and the rest of my morning routine was move into my new dresser. I went through all my clothes and got everything organized. I love my new dresser and I now have a place for everything. As promised here's a picture.
I was going to start cleaning up my loft, but when I got up there and looked at it, I realized that I just didn't feel like tackling that right now. That needs to be started earlier in the day. I can't believe how I've let it go up there. I've just been throwing everything up there every which way. For those of you who know me, know that I am a very neat person and things are usually just so in my house. I took these four pictures just to show you that I too can make a mess!! :-)

Sitting in the corner chair looking at the opposite corner.
So instead of getting started on that I'm going to read for a while now.
A very Happy Monday to one and all.
