Nothing out of the ordinary, just a nice enjoyable walk. : )
By the time I got home the sun was out and shining in a bright blue sky.
I walked 6.5 miles.
********************Did a load of laundry first thing this morning and as I took the clothes out of the washer noticed a white tissue in a million pieces scattered throughout the load. I hate when that happens. I'm usually good about finding them before they get washed but this one escaped me.
Hung the clothes out, ate a quick breakfast, decided what I wanted to work on at the Tuesday Knitting Group and headed out the door.
A small group today with only nine of us but it was nice to meet up with them to talk and enjoy the morning. I worked on making weave-it squares and got five of them done.
Stopped at the library on the way home to pick up The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton which was on hold for me. I still have to finish The Distant Hours before I can start it though. Her other book The House at Riverton was on the shelf so I checked that one out too. Then I looked on the shelf for some Elizabeth Berg books and there were quite a lot of them. Never read anything by her and I picked out one called The Day I Ate Whatever I wanted. Sounds like something I would like to do one day! : ) All three books are Large Print. I don't need the large print but it sure makes reading easier on the eyes and really like it. I get the LP whenever I can.
Had a late lunch when I got home and then did a few chores around the house.
Then I got a little extra time to sit and read for a little while until Ken came home from work.
We went out to eat at a new place we haven't been to before, Joe's Crab Shack. I had some steamed shrimp. The food was okay but it was very noisy and VERY informal. Probably won't go back again. I much prefer going to Red Lobster.
We did a couple of errands and now I'm home and in the middle of baking some chocolate chippers. Writing this post in between batches of cookies. I have a hair appointment tomorrow morning and as most of you know I bring cookies for everyone there. Haven't eaten any so far but have eaten some of the dough. : )
Hope you had a day filled with sunshine.
Just because you are happy
it does not mean that the day is perfect
but that you have looked beyond its imperfections.
It seems some of you want to know more about our old house. We lived in it for 14 years before moving into our townhouse in January of 2009. We just happened to drive by the house one day and there was a For Sale sign out front. We thought it looked like a cute little old house for us so we stopped to look at it. Liked it, so we bought it and put up the house we were living in for sale . It was a great move because it put Ken only 6 miles from work.
We added on a library, laundry room and full bath downstairs. We did all the work ourselves, including digging the foundation. It was great living there and I loved the house. But we lived there longer than we have lived anywhere and it was just time for a move.
Auntie: Yes, I do have pictures from when we lived there and yes I blogged then too. I had another blog then called Captains Log. No time today to go looking for pictures though.I'll post more pictures of the house as I clean more of it.
