I walked around the lake this morning but in the opposite way i usually do.
Just a few people out again like yesterday. I see a man walking quite often. He walks a steady but slow pace with his head down. He always looks up, smiles and says good morning back to me when i pass by, but his eyes look so sad. He seems so sad to me and i always say a little prayer for him. Sometimes i want to ask him why he is so sad but he seems a private person and i don't want to intrude.
I saw a few rabbits along the path. It was kind of dark out yet but their white cotton tails bouncing along gave them away. : )
I was on the path leading away from the lake. There is a road about 10 feet away through trees and brush on my right. I startled some deer on the left of me and five of them come running out of the woods, across the path in front of me, through the brush and straight across the street into traffic. I held my breath while they ran across the street hoping none of them would get hit by a car and let it out once they all made it safely across. I would have felt so bad because they ran away because of me.
Here are some pictures i took while walking.
I think this is a black walnut pod.
I walked 6.3 miles.
I have finished up the last of the weave-it squares.
I did a bit of cleaning and going through some stuff and getting rid of things that i no longer want. I'm still trying to declutter and not to have so much stuff in closets but i'm also trying to not have so much stuff just sitting around collecting dust. I want to just keep things that i really really like and want.
I've been watching some of those hoarder shows and they make me really want to get rid of things. I don't really like watching those shows but i seem to watch anyway. I just can't imagine what it must be like to live that way!!!
Since i've been home now for three days in a row i am really looking forward to going out for supper this evening. When Ken comes home we'll decide where to go. I'll put in my suggestion and he his and then we'll decide which sounds best. I think my suggestion will be Red Lobster.
It's been raining on and off most of the day, but i do see some blue sky from time to time so the sun will probably come out just in time to set.
Hope this Friday is being good to you.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )

and the place which may seem like the end
may also be only the beginning.
