The Little Town Pond
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤I had a very nice time last night at the Ladies Dinner at Herrington Manor but I'm sorry to say I didn't take one picture. Just wasn't thinking about picture taking. There was lots of delicious food and I took very little of almost everything so ended up eating too much.
We talked and laughed while we ate too much and then some thankful scriptures from the Bible were read. Then we went around the tables with each of us saying some things we were thankful for. Many, many things to be thankful for were mentioned and sometimes we laughed and some times we cried hearing them. What a blessing it is to be part of this church family.
The park is located in a pretty remote area and the drive home in the pitch black dark on very windy roads seemed a long way. I'm glad my car can take those curves hugging the road so well. : ) I had to stop two times for deer.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤My walk this morning was all around town and around the cemeteries. The temperature was 51 degrees again and cloudy and just as I was getting home a light mist started to fall.
I slowed down and walked among the gravestones as I sometimes do and this one caught my eye today.
I walked 6.3 miles.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤It's been raining on and off today making it a pretty dreary day. A good day to do some baking so I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies.
I think rainy days are good reading days so for part of the day I just sat and read.
It's been one of those nice quiet, lazy days around home.
Life is Good.
Hope your day is scattered with happiness.
happyone : )
Joy's smile is much closer to tears than laughter.

Kerri and Karen - How neat that the two of you also rode the Eagle Potomac Train. We didn't see any eagles that day but it is well known for that. If either of you go again let me know and I'll join you. : )
John - I aim for a 6 mile walk but most times I go just a bit over. I've been known to go farther. : ) I leave around 6:30 and get home around 8:00 or so. If I just walk I go at a pace of 4 miles an hour but many times I stop to talk to people or take pictures so then I get home later.
