✼ ✼ ✼ ✼Last night when we were at the Dollar General, Farmer Bill was there and I introduced Ken to him. Farmer Bill said he didn't recognize me at first without my orange sweatshirt! : )
I woke up last night and just couldn't get back to sleep so I got up and read for about an hour until I got sleepy. Then went back to sleep and didn't wake up again until 8:30. That is really late for me. It was pouring down rain so I didn't go walking right away and besides it being that late I wanted to have breakfast first. Did a few things and then at 10:45 I left on my walk. By that time the rain had stopped and it was just cloudy and 44 degrees. While walking blue sky started appearing and the sun even came out for a little while. How nice to feel the sun on my face after a week.
First went to the post office and mailed off the last of the Christmas cards. Nice to be finished and have them on the way and in time to arrive before Christmas.
I walked the Farm Loop. So nice out that way. Quiet too and no cars at all passed me. No school buses either walking down the school road.
A couple of pictures along the way.
Walked around town and the loop around the ball park before heading back home. A nice walk of 6.2 miles.
Home in time for lunch and afterwards I did some knitting. I'm working on the yellow baby sweater. The baby I'm making it for is due in February.
The book I started yesterday is a P D James mystery, The Murder Room. I've read some books of hers before and liked them. So far this too is a good one.
Making another batch of Pumpkin Breads and they're baking in the oven right now. These will be for our neighbors. I think the little loafs make nice gifts.
And that's been my day so far.
Hope your day brings you joy and contentment.

It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes, or bags.....
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
Maybe Christmas he thought
doesn't come from a store.
means a little bit more.
