It seems the geese are slowly returning. More of them there today again. I only saw one deer and it was a baby on its own. I wondered where its mom had got to.
I walked around the lake and went up to the upper path like usual but then took this path
A lake view
Since i walked a little bit longer by the lake today i didn't bother walking extra around the block but just headed straight home.
I sat out on my front stoop for a few minutes and took my shoes off and cooled off a bit before going inside. Snapped this picture while sitting there.
********************************************We've had a mixture of rain and sun and clouds today. During a sunny time i walked across the street to the Giant and picked up a couple of things i needed for supper tonight. I'm making tacos and needed sour cream and lettuce. The grapes caught my eye and i got some of them too. As most of you know i go to the commissary for my grocery shopping but if i just need a couple of items i just go close to home here.
Another six months has come and gone and once again tomorrow it is time to take that dreaded trip to the dentist for a cleaning. I don't like to go but i don't really mind either because of my great dentist. I usually take him some of my chocolate chip cookies so i made a batch today. I was super good and didn't even eat one of them!!! I made them just before lunch so even though i was hungry i knew i would be eating soon and that helped me not to eat a cookie.
It's been a while since i've made cookies and this was the first time i used my new cookie sheets. I think one of the secrets of making good chewy cookies that don't brown too much is these cookies sheets. That layer of air between layers works well.
Today a hummingbird paid a visit to the flowers growing in the pot out on the deck. I don't have a feeder so was pleasantly surprised to see him there. He was too fast to get a picture though.
Another visitor today was the praying mantis again. I wonder if it is the same one. This time it was on the back door. I took this picture of him right through the glass. See how good that Perfect Glass cleaner works!!! : )

Now I'm off to clean up the kitchen. I make such a mess when I bake.
Hope your Thursday is a good one.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
