We put up the fence in front of the cone flowers
to keep them from leaning over the sidewalk.

A few degrees cooler than yesterday morning it was 52 degrees this morning when I walked. There was a mix of sun and clouds and no breeze today.
I walked the Farm Loop and then around town. I don't know what is growing in this field next to the corn but I thought it looked pretty with the golden tops.
A little farther down the road I saw a deer standing on the side. When he spotted me he ran off a ways, then stopped to look at me. I then took a picture. He was pretty far off so I zoomed in. I see a round sore or something on his side which looks like a bullet hole. It must not be though because he wouldn't be running around.
Back in town Sharon, who is in my book club and a neighbor three doors down was having a yard sale and I stopped to say hi. I was surprised that so many people were there already buying stuff. A man I have seen and talked to on my walks was there too and I learned that his name is Lee. He asked me if I've seen any walnut trees on my 'morning journeys' as he calls my walks. Had to tell him no, but I hadn't really looked for any either but would keep my eyes open for one.
I walked 6.3 miles.

After Cherry Hill this morning (took along some chocolate chip cookies this time) we had lunch and then headed out to Savage River Reservoir for a few hours of kayaking. This time we explored the other side of the reservoir. The weather was cool in the 60's and as you can see, a beautiful blue sky and puffy white clouds.
We are fascinated by the rocks along the shore line.
✻ ✻ ✻ ✻Since I was sitting for those hours my step count was low for the day and I like to have 20,000 by the end of the day, so after supper I went for a little walk. I first went to the Dollar General to pick up a couple of things. Dropped them off at the house and then walked around town.
I walked around the little pond in town and stopped to take a picture of this robin sitting on the back of a bench.
These pretty yellow flowers caught my eye too.
When I got home there was Ken sitting on the porch. He was reading over the book for his test tomorrow.
Hope your day was a happy one and you smiled often.

Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom.
They just open up and turn toward the light
and that makes them beautiful.

Three Thankful Things Today
- A beautiful afternoon of kayaking
- Pretty Flowers
- The beautiful world that God has created for us
Eileen - No, we just had John for the day. We don't really need the extra help, just was helping the kids out with the auction. I'll be back to being Ken's helper. : )
Karen and Kim - We are replacing the wooden deck with a stone patio. The stones coming from Happy Trails.
