Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Blue sky

Fence on the right look familiar? 
 It is on yesterday's post as well.

A little warmer than yesterday at 50 degrees when I walked this morning.  I went around the Farm Loop and then around town.  Ken was out at Lowe's when I got home so I left again and walked some more around town.

Saw a few rabbits and the wild turkeys were out again in just about the spot as yesterday.  I counted 9 of them.

Clouds were in some of the low areas but soon the sun chased them all away and the sun was shinning brightly.

So nice to be out walking.
I walked 6.8 miles.

Isn't the green of the pine trees so pretty against the bright blue sky?!  Picture is looking up in my back yard.
Ken went up to Happy Trails after he got back from Lowe's to get started on the electric work at the cabin.

I opted to stay home today.  I had some letters that I had to write.
We cut a couple more cabbages from the garden today and I made cole slaw with one of them.  Haven't made cole slaw in a very long time.  Sure nice having a cabbage from my garden to make it.  : )
Didn't post the recipe but if anyone is interested, let me know in a comment and I'll post it tomorrow.

Sat on the porch for a while this afternoon and got more of my book read.  The weather has just been perfect this week.  A nice cool morning for walking and then it warms up to the low 70's with lots of sunshine.  I can't think of anyone not liking a weather report like that. : )

Hope you day has been sunny and bright.

I never get tired of the blue sky.

Elieen - No, Ken is not a hunter.
Kerri - Thank you so much for your kind words.  You are one of the people who encouraged me to take pictures years ago when I first started blogging.  You have always been my inspiration. : )

That sounds like a perfect weather report to me. It's gotten a bit warmer here, but not too bad. Still far from sweater weather, however.
Very pretty and peaceful photos today.

We have been having fog on our morning walks too.
I too hope to have time to sit on the porch and read. Maybe when all these renovations are over!!
Have a wonderful weekend.

What a lovely landscape to walk - I love the mist! I'm a walker, too. I try to 5-6 miles. It's good to keep moving! I LOVE homemade slaw - I haven't made it in years.
