Another day of walking in the sunshine and the temperature was 41 degrees on this Friday morning. I decided to walk one of my connect the path routes where I walk on sidewalks and paths through the woods. Coming across this fork I kept to the right.
At the end of the path I made a right, crossed a street and as I was walking over the bridge over a little stream I looked down and saw these two geese sitting in the water in a storm drain looking right at home.
I walked up past the school and saw this on the path leading away from the school. I wonder who Baby is, and what her answer was.
After walking down a sidewalk along a street I popped back onto a path that headed back in the woods. I'm so glad I happened to be on this one path because I saw an owl fly through the trees and land in a tree. How cool is that!! I zoomed in with my camera and was able to get a picture of him. The picture was very dark and I had to lighted it up some. Picture not that great but I'm happy to have one at all.
Lots of birds out calling to each other or maybe they were just singing because it was such a nice morning. I saw six deer but not many people along the paths, only three women running together.
Before I knew it my walk was over and I was back home after walking 6.3 miles.
Yesterday afternoon I got all three pieces of furniture up the stairs and found places for all of them. I didn't have any trouble getting them up the stairs - people are always surprised how strong I really am.
I put the rocking chair here by the oak secretary and fireplace. An afghan I made with weave-it squares hangs on the back. The little heart shaped pillow which says Love was given to me by Scout and Japhy, my two youngest grandchildren.
The bookcase I put in the corner of the living room. Front windows are to the left. Some of my white planter collection sits there as well as some books that I have to read. In the basket I keep thank you notes that I've gotten throughout the years. Some days when I'm not so happy I reach in and read one and it makes me happy again.
The round table I carried up three flights of stairs to my loft and on it sits the white bedspread I'm knitting out of white sampler squares. Some yarn for future projects as well. The blocks almost spell out happyone but I don't have an e block.
I finished reading Toys by James Patterson. I liked the book at first but not so much as I read on. It was okay. It made for book number 17 in my goal of 75 for the year.
Yesterday when I made the Pumpkin Bread I left the nuts out of it because so many people are allergic to nuts. The loaf I kept for us though I sprinkled nuts on top so that gave it a roasted nut topping which was really good.
More clothes on the line again today while the sunny days last. Tomorrow more rain is expected.
Today I am going to be working on the kitchen, doing just that extra bit of cleaning that needs to be done every so often.
Enjoy your Friday and don't forget to give someone a smile.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
A story about Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.
Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it,
but nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody thought Anybody could do it,
but Nobody realized the Everybody wouldn't do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody
when actually Nobody asked Anybody.
