|A splash of red|
✼ ✼ ✼ ✼60 degrees this morning and cloudy when I started walking. I walked to the Post Office and dropped off a Netflix in the mail slot. Looking up at the sky I saw some big black clouds heading my way so walked back home for my umbrella. It looked like quite a storm was coming. Headed out again with my umbrella and it was dry half way through town and then I could see it raining really hard down the street but where I was I just had a few drops. The rain moved off to the east and I never did get the rain. So turned around and walked back home to drop off the umbrella. I eventually saw a little blue sky but it did cloud up again and rained after I was back home.
I walked a couple of miles just walking down the road and back home a couple of time and then just finished my walk around town. Walked the loop behind the ball park and both of the cemeteries.
A man I often see walking his big white dog was out and we commented on how spotty the rain was.
A couple of pictures walking through town.
✼ ✼ ✼ ✼Right after breakfast I put a pot roast in the slow cooker with some potatoes and carrots and got supper going. I like when I can get supper out of the way first thing in the morning. Then when supper comes along it feels like I didn't even have to cook.
We saw on one of the cooking shows to tenderize meat by rubbing baking soda over it and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Then rinse off the meat real good. Ken tried it with the Stir Fry he made the other day. It worked, the meat was very tender. So I did it with the pot roast too. I'm really looking forward to supper later.
We went out to do a few errands. When we got back home, Ken went up to Happy Trails and I stayed home. As you probably know I have LOTS of daisies in the front yard and I spent some time dead heading them. I must have cut off a couple hundred spent daisies. Every time I thought I was done, I'd spot another one. There are still so many blooming that you can't even tell I cut so many off. Lots of new buds around too.
Its been a strange weather day. Raining, sunshine, and cloudy all in little segments and very spotty. It's been nice a cool though.
I'm off to do a little reading this afternoon.
I'm thankful to enjoy another day in the country.
Hope your day is a good one and you are happy.

Be happy with what you have and are,
be generous with both,
and you won't have to hunt for happiness.
