Up at the trailer a small tree had come down on the trailer. Thankfully it was small and the branches were the only thing that hit it so there was no damage.
We spent the whole time at Happy Trails clearing branches and trees off the trails that we had already made so we didn't get to do anymore of the siding on the tractor barn.
We did clear a little more down one of our trails.
Here is Ken having a bit of fun on his tractor. His sweat shirt matches perfectly with the tractor.
********************Monday morning I went for my morning walk but didn't walk into town this time. Before getting to the main road I turned right and walked up past a couple of farms. The two horses I've seen before must be getting to know me because both of them ran across the field and up the hill to see me. I got this close to them and took their picture. I think next time I'll see if they will let me pet them.
I only walked 5.5 miles but more than half of it was up HILLS.
It was a nice morning with temperatures in the 50's. Later in the day it was in the low 60's which made for good working weather.
We left for home yesterday late afternoon and look forward to going back again real soon.
********************This morning I walked around the lake here back home. It was a rainy day so wore my rain pants and brought my umbrella. It rained the whole time I was walking and was 40 degrees. My feet were soaked by the time I got home.
I saw the heron standing at the waters edge, counted four deer in the woods, and saw and heard many, many geese. One other walker and a runner were the only people I saw.
I walked 6.4 miles.
********************This morning getting ready for knitting I heard what sounded like hail hitting the window and sure enough there was hail mixed in with the rain. It was still hailing when I left but soon stopped, then the rain stopped and it was cloudy. By the time I left knitting the sun was shining.
A small knitting group today - only 7 of us. I am working on a simple scarf for a friend.
Left knitting and stopped at the library to return a book I just finished, The Last Time I Saw You. Another one by Elizabeth Berg and another great book. This one is about people going to a 40 year class reunion. I was very good and didn't get any more books out. Still have a couple at home I'm reading and have 2 more on the request list.
I made a batch of brownies this afternoon. I go to get my hair done again tomorrow (hard to believe 6 weeks are up already) and I told Cheryl I'd bring brownies this time instead of the chocolate chip cookies.
I have the recipe in my on line cookbook at Meals Matter and have been told that come January 13 Meals Matter is expiring so I'll be moving all the recipes over to Zip List. I've put the first recipe over there today with this Brownie Recipe.
So I have another project to do - get all my recipes moved over.
I'll end this post with some good news.
We have a contract on the old house we have For Sale. So unless something goes wrong in the details the house is SOLD!!!! : )
Hope all is well with you, my friends.
A happy day to you.
Our way is not soft grass,
it's a mountain path with lots of rocks.
But it goes upward, forward, toward the sun.
