Got a kick out of this sign which wasn't any where near a highway.
When I got here it looked like a clearing up ahead and maybe the road for me to turn on.
It wasn't but I did see these pretty flowers.
And passed a few farms.
I finally got to the top of the mountain and got to walk down a nice long hill then came to the road to turn on which would take me back to the school and then home. I turned there and walked and walked. Up hills and down hills.
I thought the school would be much closer than it was.
I realized it was passed the time that I usually get home and thought that Ken might be worried so I tried to call to tell him that I was fine just walking a little longer than usual. I couldn't get through to him. I could dial but when Ken answered the phone it would shut off. We tried calling each other a few times but could never get through. So now I'm thinking Ken is probably worried and here I was just trying to tell him not to worry! I was right. He hopped in the truck and came looking for me. He just happened to pick the route I was walking. When I finally got through to him he was just coming up behind me and found me by the school relieved that I was safe and sound. I was between two mountains and that's why the signal was so weak. I told him I'd like to continue walking home. So off he went and a mile later I was home.I ended up walking 7.2 miles which was 14,370 steps.
With all the hills it was equivalent to 938 stairs and I burned 884 calories.
Like I said it was quite a walk!! : )
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I made French toast for breakfast with the homemade bread I made yesterday. Then we were off to do a few errands.
After lunch we headed up to Happy Trails. We still had a large corner cabinet in the tractor barn and we brought that back home for Ken to put in his office.
We walked along the one trail I had made by our Babbling Brook. Usually this time of year it would be bone dry but we have a nice little flow going. I took this video.
When we got back home it was quite a job getting that big piece of furniture in the house and then in his office. Ken ended up taking some of it apart, some trim work off the doorway into the room and then the door itself down. Finally we got it in the room!
Then we went outside to trim up a few overgrown bushes. While trimming we came across this birds nest so we stopped trimming the bush. Haven't seen any birds around there so don't know what kind they are.
With such a busy day today I hit a new personal best with my Striiv.
Hope your day was sunny and bright.

There are people we meet in life
that make everything seem magical.
Vee - No different cows. These cows are my neighbors at Happy Trails. I think the how the black is on their faces just make them look annoyed. They really seem very friendly. : )
OE - I know they are supposed to be lucky facing up but to me all pennies are lucky so I never check. : )
