This morning I walked around the lake once again. Very few people there today. Rain was predicted and it felt like it was on the way. Just as the sun was about to come up I took a picture of lake and sky. The pretty sky only lasted a few minutes before the clouds took over and it was gone. How lucky I was to get this beautiful short peak at such beauty.
Walking around the lake I saw a couple of deer, a chipmunk, heron, green heron, white egret and ducks and geese. I stopped for a while and stood to the right on this bridge watching the geese swim through the lily ponds and just enjoying the scenery.
A walker friend Barbara, who I see most mornings walking her dogs, was out as usual. From a distance before I knew it was her I saw two red blinking lights in the distance. As the lights neared I saw that it was Barbara and each one of her dogs had a flashing red light attached to the little coats they were wearing. Good idea for walking in the dark. A couple of runners that I saw had lights somehow attached to their hats. Looked like coal miners hats.
The first little rain shower was just enough to get the ground damp and it had the smell of wet pavement that smells so good to me. Walking past the Giant, nearing home, I smelled another one of my favorite smells, baking bread. A walk and good smells, a good way to start this wet rainy day.
On this rainy day I stayed home and planned to get some cleaning and ironing done but you know how that goes. I walked into the living room, saw my book sitting there and read some of it. Went upstairs in my loft to put something away and saw a bookmark counted cross stitch project started and worked on that for a bit. I was given some yarn the other day and started a new knitting project with that. Before I knew it lunch time had come and gone. I missed lunch but I did eat a nice crispy juicy granny smith apple.
I suppose I should go and get some of that cleaning done, but it is too late for that now. I guess I'll go and finish that book.
Tomorrow is another day.
Hope you enjoyed your day.
