I couldn't decided which picture of the swallow to post so here's both of them.
❀ ❀ ❀ ❀34 degrees this morning with a mixture of sun and clouds and no wind when I headed out on my walk. The clouds finally took over though and my walked ended cloudy and later on in the afternoon it rained.
I walked around town today including the two cemeteries and the ball park loop.
It is not at all strange to see a tractor driving down the main street in town like you see in the picture. : )
Kathy was out walking this morning and I saw Lisa out running. A man was out by the town pond fishing too.
The horses were out down by the Drane House but they were busy eating some fresh hay and this time didn't even look up at me.
I walked 5.2 miles.
❀ ❀ ❀ ❀Yesterday our pastor called and asked if we would be able to pick up a woman who needed a ride to church. We said sure and left a little earlier than usual to get her. She is an older woman and lives on a small farm. It was her first time visiting our church. : ) We picked her up again for the evening service. She is so very thankful and as a thank you, she gave us a dozen fresh eggs that her hens laid that morning. I love the colors. They look like dyed Easter eggs. : )
❀ ❀ ❀ ❀This morning we drove down to LaVale to the MVA. It was time for me to renew my license. What a pleasant visit to the MVA. No crowds, everyone was friendly and I came out with a new license good for 5 years. : )
We stopped in Ollie's and picked up a few things. I got a box of 40 Susan Branch assorted cards for just $6.
I still have to do Body Electric and will do that in just a little bit. I have a couple loaves of bread baking in the oven and will do my exercise once I take the bread out of the oven.
The usual evening at home doing some reading, knitting, watching a bit of television and having my ice cream.
Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )
To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter...
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring -
These are some of the rewards of the simple life.
