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

Saturday's Critters

Linking up with Eileen for Saturday's Critters.
My two horse friends I visit most mornings on my walk.
Two ponies just down the road.
And look what we found in our new house being built.
A Bat
Ronnie found it in the eaves and threw it outside.
Ken took the picture.
🎄     🎄
Didn't leave until 7:30 for my walk this morning.
A warm 48 degrees out and a rainy one so off I went in my rain gear.

Walked through town and then over to the industrial park.
There are only 6 businesses there and it's nice a quiet with no traffic at all
on the weekend.
Cut my walk a bit short and only walked 5.2 miles.
My feet got wet and my toes were cold.
🎄     🎄
Still can't find a gas stove we like for the new house around here
but we did find one we liked on line and will order that one.

In the afternoon I baked sugar Christmas Cookies.
It was a new recipe and I liked how the dough rolled out.
The easiest to roll out that I've come across.

It's been a rainy, dreary day all day.
Too bad all this rain isn't snow.
We are expected to have snow on Christmas day and the day after.

A happy day to you.
happyone 😊

Hello, love the pretty horses. The bat was looking for a warm home. It has been raining here all day too. The sugar cookies sound yummy. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. I appreciate your visits and comments too. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Enjoy your day and weekend!

A Bat!!! Yikes! I don't really care to have them around.Guess they are harmless, but I just don't like them much. Hope you get that snow, just in time for Christmas.

Great shots of the horses. Yikes about the bat. Glad someone dealt with it. I'm heading over to check out the cookie recipe.

Hi Karen! Yummy. Maybe I'll make sugar cookies in the morning. That's an amazing bat, so perfect.
Have a lovely celebration of our Savior's birth! I'm thankful for good and sweet YOU!

Your friends are beautiful! I once found a baby bat hanging inside of our swimming pool - it's tiny head dangling close to the water line. It took me a while .. they are pretty scary looking when agitated , but I finally got it out before it drowned.

Merry Christmas!!!!!

Rose said...

Those to horse friends are real beauties! Older daughter and I baked cookies yesterday, too, but just chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and tried a new peanut butter stuffed recipe which In have not sampled...
