I mapped out a new route for myself this morning. I walked along paths, along roads and the trail in the picture which runs behind a school. I have named this route 'The Trail.'
I heard many birds chirping and a woodpecker was making quite a racket pecking on the aluminum siding on a house. He must have liked making that sound because he kept it up for quite a while.
A handful of people were out and all of them were walking dogs.
I stopped to take this picture of these pretty little yellow flowers, a reminder that spring is on its way.
********************I did finish the book I was reading yesterday. It was Rutland Place by Anne Perry, another Charlotte and Pitt book. Pitt solves crimes in Victoria London with help from his wife Charlotte. Lots of books in the series and so far I've liked all that I've read.
Ken got home a bit late and we just had time to drop off the books at the library but not to get anymore out. Which was good for me. I've started a book of my own from one of those shelves that I'm working on trying to get read this year. The book is Middle Age by Joyce Carol Oates.
After lunch we went to Lowe's and walked around looking at building materials and nail guns. Ken is anxious to get started building on our land and has started drawing the plans and figuring out what will be needed. First we will build a shed and then the cabin. Every time we go to Lowe's we walk around quite a bit so I wore my pedometer while we were there for fun to see how far we walked. I took 2376 steps which for me was 1.2 miles.
Walked past some house plants and I bought a couple.

I put both of them in the front windows.Vee little glass magnet in the mail today. She had a giveaway and was nice enough to give not only the winners a few of them but all who commented one as well and she gets LOTS of comments. I had mentioned that my favorite one was the bluebird and that is the one she sent me. I love it Vee!! Thanks so much!! You are most kind and I'm so happy that we have become friends. : )
It's been a very good day and it's not over yet. : )
Hope your Saturday is a good one too.
If we had no winter,
the spring would not be so pleasant.
