Noticed some Lilacs starting to bloom this morning.
I stopped to smell them. : )

56 degrees this morning with a mix of sun and clouds. Nice that it wasn't raining for a change and I stayed dry. : )
I walked around by the industrial park. Not a very big one, just 5 business. I usually walk around there on Sunday mornings because no one is going to work and it is quiet with no cars. Today I realized that Saturdays it is the same way.
This road runs parallel between the industrial park road and the main road. I walked to the end which is a dead end, turned around and walked back.
Not sure what is growing here in the field but I like the colors.
Took a quick loop around town and then home.
Walked 6.3 miles.

Last night I finished reading The Ballad of Tom Dooley by Sharyn McCrumb. It was based on the ballad made famous by the Kingston Trio about the first love-triangle murder to become national news in 1865. While doing the research for the book McCrumb uncovers a missing piece of the story which changes things a bit. I thought it was good and enjoyed reading it.
It bothered me seeing all the grass clippings on top of the lawn from when I mowed yesterday so went outside this morning and cleaned it all up. Ken used the leaf blower and I raked. We have an acre so it took all morning. I used the grass clippings for mulch and put it around some forsythia bushes that line the back yard.
After lunch we went up to Happy Trails. I was just going to sit on the cabin deck and read but ended helping Ken. (did read for a little while)
He was a lumberjack today. : )
For supper we went out to Subway and got a couple of subs. Sat in the truck and ate them overlooking Deep Creek Lake.
A good work day and I'm sure we will both sleep good. : )
Hope your day was a happy one.
