|A good place to eat in town|
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤A cloudy morning and 60 degrees. Walked about half the way to Happy Trails, turned around came back to town and finished my walk in town.
I love this red flower that grows along the little stream on the road to HT. I think it is called Bee Balm.
Look what I spotted in one of the trees already.
I don't think I'm quite ready for leaves to be changing yet.
I didn't encounter anyone else out this morning.
After 5 miles a light drizzle started but not enough to get me wet. The road even stayed dried under the trees.
I didn't find any coins but did find a small black rubber bungee strap in the road and brought it home for Ken.
When I got home and walked around back there was a Goldfinch at the feeder.
I walked 6.6 miles.

I was asked if I would make a chocolate bite sized something for the teen girls at church for an event they are having next month. I thought bite sized pieces of fudge would be nice. I found a real simple recipe on line and I made some today to see how it would turn out.
Easy Chocolate Fudge
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional ( I didn't put in nuts)
Lightly grease a 9 inch square pan;
Line with a piece of plastic wrap, leaving ends out to cover the finished fudge.
The ends will also serve as 'handles' which will help you lift the fudge out of the pan.
Heat milk, chips, butter, and vanilla in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
Stir in nuts, if using.
Pour into the prepared pan.
Spread gently, then cover lightly with the ends of the plastic wrap.
Chill until firm.
Lift out of pan and cut into small squares.
I made it even easier by doing away with the double boiler and just melting it in the microwave. Stopped every 30 seconds to stir. When it was all melted
I poured it into a 7 x 11 (didn't have a 9 ")glass dish.
Here is the fudge a few hours later ready to eat.
It's been raining on and off all day long. The work on the water feature continues.
I've been reading and finished The Purchase by Linda Spalding for my book club tonight. I finished it just in time. It was okay.
I will walk to the library right after we eat supper (book club meets at 5:30) and Ken is going to pick me up at 6:30 and we will just be able to make it church on time. The book club usually starts to break up about that time anyway.
Hope your day was one when you smiled often.
happyone : )
By happy with what you have and are,
be generous with both,
and you won't have to hunt for happiness.
