☂ ☂ ☂ ☂A few degrees warmer this morning at 58 degrees. By the time I got down the block it started to rain so I turned around and got my umbrella. The rain came and went all during my walk so the umbrella was up and down quite a lot. It never did rain hard though.
Walked around town including both cemeteries and the ball park. Saw a man running around the ball park loop. It's the second time I've seen him. He just runs the loop there. I would think it would get boring running around the same 1/4 mile over and over.
Went to see the horses over by the Drane house. Two of them were out and were under an apple tree eating apples. One of the them trotted over to me and I petted him a while and when I left he went back to eating apples. I always think they just come over to me because they think I have something to eat for them, but maybe not. : )
Both sides of the road have had the corn harvested so I no longer walk between a tunnel of corn.
Sunrise - 7:10
☂ ☂ ☂ ☂First thing after breakfast (pancakes) I baked a chocolate cake for a church event tomorrow.
Then we headed out to Keyser for another Monday of bowling. More bad bowling on my part but it was fun. My ball weighs 10 pounds and this time I used an 8 pound ball from the bowling alley. Even though my scores were low I liked the lighter one better. This weeks scores were 97, 98, and 93. At least I was consistent and there is always next week. : ) There were 6 of us today and afterwards we stopped to eat at Chat and Chew.
Once we were home again, I made the icing and iced the cake I baked this morning and also baked a dozen blueberry muffins also for church tomorrow.
In just a little while we will be going to church - it's a two day event.
And that's been my day so far.
Hope you're enjoying yours.
happyone : )
Whatever you are be a good one.

Janet - A lot of people ask me that question - how long does it take me to walk? It takes me on average 90 minutes. Sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more depending on if I stop to talk to someone or how many pictures I stop to take. If I just walk I walk a mile in 15 minutes. I don't speed walk but take a comfortable pace for me.
About blisters - I've been taking a morning walk for 27 years and have only had a blister a few times so it really isn't a problem for me. When I have had a blister I use Band-Aid Activ Flex band aids. They work great and you can still walk.
I think it is very important to have a good fitting shoe when you walk. It should feel good on your foot as soon as you put it on. If it doesn't it isn't the right shoe for you. I have had different brands through the years but currently I wear Under Armour. Also to avoid blisters make sure your sock isn't bunched up anywhere.
I am happy that I have encouraged you to start walking again.
