It was very quiet this morning, just like a Sunday.
I didn't see any people but the birds were out singing and the some of the cows were down by the fence.
The chickens were out roaming around on both sides of the road. It's nice that they get to roam all over the place. Later on when I passed the lone chicken in the cage, I told her she should try to escape and go live with the free chickens over at the farm.
This morning I walked 6.3 miles - 12,132 steps.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~When I got back home Ken, MJ and I had breakfast and then we headed out to an auction. This was only the second auction MJ had been to and seemed to enjoy it. : ) Ken bid on two picnic tables and got both of them. A 6 foot one and an eight foot one. Some men at the auction helped Ken load them in the truck so I didn't have to. These are well made and are HEAVY. We put one one the deck here at the house.
The other one we put up at Happy Trails.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Mary Jo left to go home at 12:30 when her family came to pick her up. They had a 3 hour ride ahead of them to get back home.
I am so very happy that MJ came for a visit and that she got to stay a few days. We had such a good time and I will really miss her. After she left I shed a few tears. I know that is silly because I'll be seeing her again but I was just a little sad that our visit came to an end.
After she left we went up to HT and walked around a bit. Then when we got back home, I mowed the lawn again.
So now things seem quiet here at home with MJ gone.
In a little while we will have our ice cream. I'll be having more of the whoppie pie flavor.
This weekend seemed to zoom by much too fast but what a good one it was!!
Hope all is well in your part of the world and your day was happy and bright.
