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

A warm rainy walk

☂     ☂     ☂     ☂

Once again I had to wear my rain pants and yellow slicker as I walked. Another dark rainy morning but this time it was even a few degrees warmer at 54.   It rained for most of my walk but the rain stopped for the last mile.

Walked no special route all around and up and down all the streets in town and also around the two cemeteries and ball park loop.  Looking forward to when it's a bit lighter so I can walk the Farm Loop.  It is just too dark up that way now and there are no street lights.

A man in a pick up truck stopped to ask me where the library was, but other than that didn't talk to any one else.  Pretty quiet around town on the Christmas Eve morning.

I walked 5.8 miles.

Did a few things around the house and late morning we went to the store to pick up a few items of food.

This afternoon I finished reading X by Sue Grafton.  It was okay.

We're having BLT's for supper and then will head out to church for a Christmas Eve service which is at 6:00. 

Hope your day was a happy one and you're all set for tomorrow and your Christmas is a relaxed and joyful time.

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.

A few of you mentioned the 'boring' area sign on yesterdays post.  It was a road work sign to let you know they were were drilling holes (boring) and they were letting you know you were out of the area.  They were not working yesterday and I don't know why they were boring the holes.  But I did like the sign. : )
