Well Vee, I did walk 9 miles this morning.
I didn't mean to walk that far it just somehow happened. I had planned to just walk around the lake but my feet went in the opposite direction this morning. I walked down the road and over to the school and then out toward route 144. The other day in the car I noticed a church with a door I liked. This month United Bloggers theme is doors and I thought it might be good for that. I crossed over 144 and walked around the church grounds and snapped a few pictures of the door. Out behind the church is a cemetery. I was disappointed to find the gates locked so I couldn't walk around in it, but I did snap these pictures over the fence.
Instead of walking back home the same way I had come I decided to walk along route 44
I thought the library was closer to the church than it actually was which made my walk longer than I thought it would be. Work has started on the new library, but I didn't take any pictures because lots of workers where there as I passed by. Didn't want them to think I was taking their pictures. Continued down the road and turned down Gray Rock Road and walked until I came to the path through the woods. I saw by this sign here that the path is going to be renovated.
Walking along the path I saw deer in three different places for a total of 7 deer. At one point I turned off the paved path and went down a trail in the woods a short way to see the deer. There is a bench along there and I sat down and stayed there for a bit enjoying the quiet of the woods before walking the rest of the way home. Tomorrow I am going to go for a more normal 6 mile walk. I was out for 2 hours and 15 minutes. It was a nice cool sunny morning - just perfect for walking.
Yesterday it stayed cloudy but there was a breeze so my clothes tried out on the line. I have another load out there today. It is still nice and sunny and is supposed to be a beautiful day in the 70's.
We didn't eat the bean and spinach soup I made yesterday. It is one of those foods which tastes better the next day so we will have that tonight. I made the rolls to go with it but I did eat one just to make sure they came out right.
Last night we went out to eat at Outback and got ribs. We ordered a full rack and then split it in half and shared it. Ken ate the fries with it and I ordered a sweet potato. It is nice that Outback will split the order like that for us.
We watched a new television series for us last night from Netflix called William and Mary. It's a British show where two people meet on a dating website. She is a midwife, he is an undertaker. It's a blend of comedy, drama and romance and we liked it a lot.
I finished reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens. That was book number 37 for the year. I don't think it will be possible for me to make my goal of 75 for the year on LibraryThing.
Off I go to get some things done around the house so I can start another book and knit.
Have a great Thursday.
