Linking up with Tom for the Barn Collective.
Didn't get a chance to get any more quilt barn pictures this week,
so here is a barn that is on one of my walking routes.
These picture are taken from the main road.
The picture HERE is the same barn but the picture is taken from the cemetery.
Hopefully next week I'll have another quilt square barn.

This morning the temperature was up again to 40 degrees.
I didn't get started till 7:00.
It started out cloudy.
But soon the sky looked like this.
And before long I saw blue sky and sun.
I walked on the roads behind my house first, then through town
and around one of the cemeteries, down toward Happy Trails
then back to town, around the second cemetery
and once again around town.
This building is just a block from my house. Years ago it was a school.
Now there is a day care center in the building, a small gym for seniors,
(I've never checked it out but might this winter)
and a few apartments.
I found out that the attack dog lives in one of the apartments.
I saw the owner with him out there by the building.
I recognized the dog right away. She did have the dog on a leash
and I'm sure it was just a one time thing that the dog got out.
I almost went over to tell her about the other day,
but I didn't want to go by the dog. It was already barking at me.
I was telling Kathy about it and she said she carries mace around with her
when she walks. She showed me hers and I was surprised how small it was.
I never wanted to get it because I thought it would be a pain to carry it around but now I think I'm going to get myself some too.
Walked 6 miles.

Ken went out to do his Christmas shopping today.
While he was out I cleaned the front room and then put up
our Christmas tree. It's is just a small one and I put it in the bay window.
Every year since we've been married Ken has painted a red Christmas ball
with the date and a little event about the year.
This year I just put them on the tree with lights.
Ken will paint ball number 44 this year.
I never know what he will put on the ball.
He always surprises me.
Finished puzzle number 3 yesterday afternoon.
There wasn't a box to look at the picture, just that little paper
with the picture of the puzzle.
There are 700 pieces.
I've started the next one already and it is real easy, just 300 pieces,
so it shouldn't take long to do.
Well that's it for today.
A happy day to you.
"Don't be dismayed by good-byes.
A farewell is necessary before you can meet again.
And meeting again after moments or a lifetime
is certain for those who are friends."

LD Diane - I've listed all the books I've read for this year so far on a Page that you can find right under my header, and you can see the books I've liked there. My favorite book for the year though is The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. I loved this book.
Eileen - I didn't wear my 'Snow Sneakers' the other day because they are for wet slushy snow and that day it was just icy. If it is really icy I wear ice grippers on the bottom of my shoes called Yaktrax. The other day there was still plenty of places to walk where there wasn't any ice so didn't wear them. The are great though!!
Vee - I always wear bright colors to be seen any way but during hunting season I wear orange. I do hear gun shots around in the woods.
John - As you just read, I've change my mind about carrying mace with me.
