Though the temperature was 57 this morning, it was cloudy and dreary when I walked but it was nice not having to wear layers. Maybe this time the warmer weather will last. The sun did try to come out but didn't make it while I was walking.
The cherry blossoms are all out here along the path by the lake. The picture would have been nicer had the sun been out, but who knows how long the blossoms will last so I took this picture anyway.
I saw Goldfinches for the first time this year - such pretty little birds. They always make me smile. The white egret was at the waters edge and I saw the heron fly low over the water following the brook.
The pier is just about done now. Today they were putting in forms to pour more concrete for making a sidewalk down to the pier.
My pedometer is acting up and not recording the correct amount of miles. I walked a 6.4 route today but my pedometer only read 4 miles. It is probably the battery. I'll check it one more time tomorrow, if it is wrong again I'll have to get a new battery.
Another day and another great walk. : )
Mid morning the sun came out and the temperature crept up in the 70's. I got a couple of loads of laundry hung out to dry, had some breakfast and then headed out to the library. I had a couple of books waiting for me to pick up and found one on the shelf too. I just finished reading The Face of a Stranger by Anne Perry. I thought it was a great book. It is the first Monk novel in the series. He is a London detective in the Victorian era.
I drove the FJ today because it was parked in front of the garage where my car was and I was too lazy to move it out of the way. I like driving the FJ too, it's a fun car to drive and I can sure see good being up so high. : )
I'm about to have some lunch and then I hope to get some work around the house done. I have blogs to catch up on reading and since it is turning out to be such a nice day, I'll sit out on the deck and start one of those books I picked up today.
Have a good Monday and take the time to enjoy some small wonder you come across today.
Happyone : )
I love to think of nature as an
unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.
