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

Glove #9 and a mailbox

54 degrees 
Cloudy  ☁️
Sunrise - 6:18 
Walked 6 miles 🚢‍♀️

Yesterday walking I found another glove in town.
This morning I walked down the main road and added 
glove number 9 to another post.

 Continued walking around both cemeteries, and the ball park, and
all around town.

There are 6 bulls down at the barn now.
Farmer Marvin must be selling some more of them.

Rebecca was running this morning in stead of walking.
Saw Joy at a distance but she didn't see me.

The road work continues but now it is out of town so didn't
see the stop sign lady today.

While I was out taking pictures of old doors I also snapped
some pictures of mailboxes around town.
So the next series of pictures will be mailboxes.
I'll post one a day till I run out of pictures.

It stayed cool all day but the sun was shining.
I cut the last of the rhubarb off today.
Not enough for a cobbler so will get some strawberries tomorrow
when we go shopping and add them to it.

Finished knitting the hat for Ken.
You can see it HERE and get the pattern too.

That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you. πŸ™‚

The mailbox picture looks ready to be turned into a jigsaw puzzle.

I love that mailbox! And it sure is nice and cool there...not so much here! Enjoy your evening!

I've always found it interesting to look at mail boxes. Seeing those you post will be fun. No wonder Ken likes his new hat. It's really nice.

Hi Karen. I love that hat you made for Ken. Wish I had some knitting talent. Mailboxes are interesting like doors - something everyone has - but each one is a little different. We actually don't have a mailbox. We have a slot in our front door and the mail carrier just pushes the mail in through the slot. It is convenient because then I don't have to stop the mail when we go out of town. Hope you are having a good week. See you again tomorrow.

I especially like today's mailbox because of the Queen Anne's Lace. The whites are nice together.

Do you actually find these gloves? Or do you buy them to put on the posts?

God bless.

Hi Karen- Ken's Hat is a ripper- well done there! We call this type of Hat - a 'Beannie'. Best Wishes. KEV. (Sydney-Australia).

Oh good...I am charmed by most mailboxes. The hat turned out great.

Country mailboxes will be great too.

You have just reminded me that I have a bag of rhubarb in the freezer that needs to be used. I love the strawberry/rhubarb combo.
It will be fun to see the mailboxes in your area. I like the looks of this first one.
Great job on Ken's hat and I like the color you chose.

I too like the mailbox and the QAL. Will be interesting how your area uses their creativity for mailboxes. Great job on Ken's hat and yarn choice. Is #9 a lucky number? Thanks for this interesting post, Karen.

The mailbox is a neat sight.

Lovely new header. Smiling about the new (old) glove. Looking forward to seeing the mailboxes you choose to share!
