I walked over to the lake and just before I get there, there is open field and today I saw a deer ran all out across it. I don't usually get to see them in such an open space to watch them run. He ran across the field, hopped over the path and ran into the woods. They can really move and it was amazing to stand there and watch.
Farther on my walk I counted 4 more deer and saw the kingfisher again.
When the sun was coming up it spread a pinkish tinge over everything. It was so pretty.
I came across this birds nest in a little tiny tree. The nest looks big in the picture but it is actually very small - only about a couple inches across.
I found 2 pennies and a quarter.
Walked 7.7 miles.
********************I've been home so far today and just doing a few chores around the house with breaks of reading in between things. I've also started knitting purple scarf for a friend.
The woman that put a contract on the old house has backed out of the deal so we are back to square one with selling it. After the inspector came and found a couple minor things wrong, like the sump pump has to be replaced and a minor electrical thing in the garage which are legitimate things and we have no problem fixing them and will still do them.
Then the buyer listed all these ridiculous items that we just refused to do. One was to replace the brick sidewalk out front because the bricks are uneven and are a tripping hazard. Another thing was the walls are bumpy - the walls are plaster and lathe and we certainly weren't going to tear all the walls out and put in drywall. Another thing was she wanted the stairs in the house replaced because they were too steep, narrow and dangerous!!! The walls and the stairs are part of the charm of a 112 year old house. I don't know why she even put in an offer. She needs a NEW house. Oh well, she just wasn't the right person for my lovely old house. There is someone out there who will love it. : )
Now I'm off to do my exercises and will probably do a little more reading later on this afternoon.
Hope all is well in your part of the world.
A happy day to you.

will never find it under a tree.
