An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. Henry David Thoreau
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

Blanket Day

 This morning it was cloudy and 61 degrees when I went walking.

Walked around town for a while and then headed over to the
industrial park and did a tour around there.

A field of wildflowers in the industrial park.

Once back in town I walked around the ball park.
There I saw Joy, Rebecca, and a man walking a dog.

This week there has been some road work going on in town
and part of the road has only one way traffic, so
people have to wait a bit to get through. 
Not a big deal because there aren't that many cars.
Anyway I'm getting to know one of the people who hold up
the stop sign. Each day she is a little farther down the road.

Todays Door

Walked 6 miles

Today was Babies for Blanket day at church so left after
breakfast for a morning of making blankets.
Breakfast is served there but since I ate at home, didn't eat anything.

I had volunteered to do the devotional this month and
 picked the subject of friends to talk about.
With God's help I think it turned out okay. ๐Ÿ™‚

There were 12 of us there today and as always it was
an enjoyable time.
Such a blessing to have this group of women as my friends!
(Hope you decided to stop by Jane - Hi. ๐Ÿ™‚ ❤️)

Just puttered about the house this afternoon.
Didn't feel like doing any cleaning!!!
But I did feel like reading and knitting.

Had some rain this afternoon and heard a few claps of thunder.

That's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
 A happy day to you. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป‍๐Ÿฆณ happyone ❤️

GrannyM and SusanQ - the blue wild flowers from yesterday are Chicory.  Here's a close up of one of the flowers.

Sounds like a wonderful day for you! Christian fellowship is the best, especially when you're working together on something. Happy Thursday, Karen!

Pretty tree and flowers. I like Chicory, it looks pretty.
The door is cool. Blanket day sounds nice, meeting up with your friends.

Have a great day and a happy weekend!

Glad you had a good time with your Friends making the Baby Blankets Karen. We're in complete Lock Down here - no going anywhere for us for awhile -probably to the end of August and some more. Best Wishes. kEV.

How rewarding to do something worthwhile with a group of women. It must be boring to hold up a stop sign all day. Nice that you could talk to her. :)

Your new drawing-Icon is cute.

But for myself, I like your last pic of _you_... With bangs and longer hair. It is lovely!!!!!

You know me! Gotta' say what I think. LOL

But of course, your Icon is your Icon.

Gentle hugs...
