Picture of the Day
Marigolds in my yard

This morning dawned clear and bright with a temperature of 54 degrees. I put a couple dozen chocolate chip cookies in a ziplock baggie and then in a plastic shopping bag and headed out around the Farm Loop. The cookies were for Farmer Bill to say thanks for the beans and zucchini. I was just going to hang them on his door knob but he was outside so I handed them to him. He gave me a big smile and said thanks!!
Walking down the road between fields of corn I stopped a moment to listen to the breeze blowing the corn around. It was just that sound and a few birds chirping in the distance. Oh, Life is Good.
I took the road through Farmer Marvin's Farm and saw this shed almost hidden in the trees.
Back in town I walked around the cemeteries and the ball park loop. Spotted this poor dead snake in the road.
Today was the first day back to school for the kids here and I saw a few kids standing at bus stops but oddly I didn't see any buses. I must have been a tad too early.
It was a beautiful morning for walking.
I walked 6.2 miles.

Ken went up to Happy Trails and I wanted to go with him but had too much to do at home. Got the laundry done and what a beautiful day to hang it all out on the clothes line. Lawn mowing day too and boy I sure do get the lawn done fast. My rider does a great job and really moves . My neighbor started mowing before me and has less yard to mow and I was done way before he was.
This is a picture in the front of my house. Where the flowers are planted on both sides of the sidewalk are where I took all those shrubs out. There were at least a dozen of them. I like it so much better with just the flowers.
I had mentioned a while ago that I was writing notes to prisoners around the country for my church. Well, now I'm getting answers to some of them, thanking me for the words of encouragement. Nice to know they read them and are encouraged. I've written back to all who write back to me. (All the letters go to the church and I don't sign my name.)
I really need to wash my car but I'm going to put that off for another day. What sounds good to me, is to sit on the porch and read until Ken gets home. Then I'll help him unload the trailer.
Hope your Monday is sunny and bright.

True terror is to wake up one morning
and discover that your high school class
is running the country.

Three Thankful Things Today
- Bright clear early mornings
- Pretty flowers in my yard
- The sound of corn blowing in the wind
Thank you all for your prayers and thank you GOD.
Now I have another prayer request. Betty who sits next to me in church went for checkup and to everyone's surprise needs to have open heart surgery tomorrow. She has no outward symptoms and feels perfectly fine. Please pray that all goes well tomorrow. Thanks so much.
