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

Very Long Legs

62 degrees this morning and very still out.
A mix of sun and clouds.
Sunrise: 6:26
Sunset: 8:17

A walk to town and around both of the cemeteries.

Saw the Doe and her two little ones trying to cross the road
as I was walking to town.  All three were in the middle of the road
and thankfully the two cars going by stopped so they could cross.

Walking down the hill from the cemetery the sun was at my back
and cast a long shadow.
Me and my shadow.

Didn't see anyone else out walking till I headed back home.
Then saw Dwayne, Rebecca, and then Lena and Jim.

Walked 5.8 miles
Found a penny

Shop and Save grocery shopping day and we went right after breakfast.
Not a lot of people in the store but then at that time of day
there is never a lot of people there!

Ken's been working on his little bridge again today.
I did some weeding around the area.
Helped him out a little bit by holding things in place
and fetching things for him.

Finished sewing up the latest baby blanket.
Definitely for a girl.

Started reading the second Miss Read book in the Thrush Green series.

Kev - No, not unusual to have fog in summer.  We can get fog anytime of year.

Anni - Yes, I made the natural fences and it is an on going thing.  I started making them when we moved to Happy Trails 2 years ago this month.  When I cleared the woods of dead fall I just started making the fence and now when I walk along and find a branch that has fallen, just add it to the fence.  I'll have to walk all along the fences to see how long they are!  I enjoy making the fences.  The animals seem to like them too and it is something that I can do on my own without help.  Ken does cut up some of the bigger limbs with the chain saw for me though.

I love the baby blanket. I remember the one you made and sent to my granddaughter. Wow, that has been four years. Time goes so quickly. Fun picture of your tall shadow. See you again tomorrow.

Love the long leg shadow shot. The flowers are pretty. The baby blanket is beautiful. I am glad the deer were ok, I always stop and wait for them to cross the road. Take care, enjoy your day!

It looks like you are on stilts. The baby blanket is cute and will be cozy for some little one.
