A mild 45 degrees this morning but it was a rainy foggy morning.
A little rain didn't stop me from walking though.
I put on my rain gear and wore my snow sneakers to keep my feet
dry and off I went.
Walked down a steep hill and then up a hill to town.
Walked around both cemeteries and down by the Drane house.
The horses aren't around much anymore because now
cows are there now.
I miss the horses.
Walked back down a hill and then up a steep hill to home.
My raincoat keeps me dry for the first three miles.
After that water somehow starts to drip off the hood
and ends up going down the front of my coat and I end getting a bit wet.
No deer today, just saw a lot of cows.
No people again, just people in cars, trucks and school buses waving to me.
No walking pictures today.
Never took my phone out of my pocket, too wet.
Sure was nice to be able to be walking outside again though.
Walked 6 miles
🌧 ☔️ 🌧
Sewed the third row of weave-it squares on the bedspread I'm making
this morning. I think there is enough done now to give you an
idea of what it will look like.
It is a yellow gingham pattern.
There will be 24 rows consisting of 24 weave-its to a row.
144 Bright yellow
288 pale yellow
576 squares in all.
It will probably take me all year to complete it!!
After lunch we went to the old house and painted most of the afternoon.
Slowly the painting is getting done.
Before coming back home we stopped at the library to pick up a book
that was on hold for me.
When I walked in the door there was a table with books on it
that were gift wrapped with a sign that said,
Take a blind date with a book.
You're supposed to check out one of the books without knowing
what it is and unwrap it when you get home and read it.
Thought it would be fun to see what book I'd get.
Here's the book that was on hold for me and
the gifted wrapped book.
When you participate your name gets entered in a drawing to win
a $25 gift card from the Firefly, a business in town.
I haven't unwrapped my book yet.
Be back tomorrow to see which one I picked.
Using my new Crock Pot today for making chili.
Not for today though. It is for Sunday.
We are having our annual Chili Bowl Day at church after the morning service.
From yesterdays post, blogger friend Lisa was wondering about the
difference between a
Crock Pot and a Slow Cooker.
I noticed on the front of my new Crock Pot it said this:
Which seemed to be that Crock Pot was a Brand Name
of a slow cooker and that they were the same.
I looked it up and learned that they aren't exactly the same.
The brand name Crock Pot came out in the 70's.
It has a stoneware pot surrounded by a heating element.
A Slow Cooker is a metal pot that sits on top of a heated surface.
Seems now though that most people think of a Slow Cooker as
the same as a Crock Pot.
That's it for today.
A happy day to you.
Life is Good
Tom and ChipButter - Though the back splash you noticed in yesterdays picture does look like tin, it is actually a thick plastic. It looks like tin in person too and it cleans up very easy. It comes in squares and we got ours at Lowe's. Had it in the old house too.
