Hornet and its nest near our front porch.
It's about the size of a baseball.
We bought one of the spray cans that you can stand a good distance
away from while spraying it.
I'll let Ken have that job!

53 degrees this morning with a mix of sun and clouds during my walk today. I've sure been having some great weather for walking lately.
First walked to the post office and mailed a card. P.O. Not opened yet so just dropped it down the slot.
Continued walking around the ball park loop, the two cemeteries, went down toward Happy Trails and up Sale Barn Rd and finally around town before reaching home again.
Farmer Marvin's field of soy beans. Some years he plants corn in this field. He has corn growing in other fields this year.
Two people out walking dogs again and quite a few people were up and out early getting yard sales set up.
They put on a pretty good parade in town here on the 4th and town workers were out sprucing things up. Places getting mowed and trimmed and flags up all along the main street.
Walked 6.2 miles.

We went down to LaVale for the day to do some shopping and I had great success. : ) Sometimes it is hard to find jeans that fit but today the first pair I tried on fit perfectly and were comfortable so I bought two!! Also got a very pretty soft blue and white plaid shirt. I still haven't been able to find a jean skirt but today I found a jean dress and bought that too.
Ken got a couple shirts, bought my mom a couple sweat pants and will mail them to her and we got a few other things we needed too.
Before leaving LaVale we stopped at Rita's and had a Gelati. Both of us had chocolate with cherry which we ate outside at a table by the store. A good ending to a good shopping day.
Before getting back home we stopped by church and helped Pastor put up a bunch of flags around the church property. Looks very patriotic. Should have taken a picture. Will tomorrow if I think of it.
Well that's been my day.
Hope yours was a happy one.
happyone : )

This little bird sat here in the water on our water feature in the back yard for the longest time yesterday. It blends in so well with the rock you can hardly see it. Lots of birds stop in here for a drink and a bath or like this one just to enjoy the cool water. It is right outside my kitchen window.
