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

Back to bowling

🌾      🌾

Another sunny morning for walking and 42 degrees with no wind.  It warmed up quickly and I soon had to take off my sweat shirt. 
Started out walking on the roads behind my house and those two geese were out waking again.  This time they didn't even fly away when I got close.

Walked through town and up Barn Sale Rd a ways and then down toward HT before turning back to town.  Made a couple of loops around the cemeteries and then back home.  Saw a deer running through the pasture, but again no people out walking.

Walked 6.2 miles

Finished knitting the scarf last night with the yarn that had all these colors in one hank.  Picture of the yarn is HERE, the one in the middle.

Ken went up to HT again and I stayed home.
Had some things to do around the house left over from yesterday.
Then late morning I went outside and mowed the lawn.
Still soggy in spots but not too bad and I got the whole lawn mowed.

Ken was home for lunch and then we left in the afternoon to
meet our friends for some bowling.  Haven't been bowling for a few weeks now.
The lanes don't open until 3:00 this month so we have to bowl later
in the day now.
Not my day for bowling,  122, 114, and 94 in that order,
but still had fun.

After bowling we all went to a little eatery called Tomanetti's
for supper.

Then to Walmart to do food shopping.
Groceries put away and now another day is just about gone.
Life is Good.

A happy day to you.

My bowling scores went downhill last time I played

The first picture in this post should be on a calender or at least framed and hung on a wall. It is beautiful, Karen.

It sounds as if you had a full day yesterday. There is an auction Friday evening. :)

Mary and I took our granddaughter bowling in Michigan two weeks ago. First time we had been in over a decade. It was fun, but my goodness, were we terrible!
