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

Clouds in the valley
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
32 degrees this morning, no wind and the sun came out too. : )  Since it was right at freezing and it had rained yesterday there were some icy spots around.

I walked all around town.  You can see all the gravel that is on the sidewalks which gets kicked up from when they spread it on the snowy roads.  Once spring arrives they clean it all up.
The horses were out down by the Drane house. 
Walked up Sale Barn Rd again and went to the end.  The cattle were out up that way and these two stopped eating and came over to see me.  : )
Didn't see any people out walking or running.
I walked 6.4 miles.

Home today doing stuff around the house.  Our neighbor Ron, next to HT stopped by for a little visit.

I've started knitting a baby blanket.  Still making a weave-it one but thought I'd knit one too for a change.  Maybe I'll finish both by the time the ladies meet again to make blankets next month.
A little bird stopped to eat some seeds off the picnic table out my back door.
It's been a nice sunny day, almost spring like, but I'm sure we haven't seen the last of the snow quite yet.

Hope your Monday as been a happy one.

Don't pray when it rains,
if you don't pray when the sun shines.

The scenery looks a lot different than the last time I visited. I know you must be very happy to be outside walking again.
Your little visitor is a cutie.

I expect you're very happy now the snow is going. I like cattle as long as there is a fence between us :)
