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

Stairs Puzzle

 A foggy and dark morning and 55 degrees
when I started walking at 6:30.
Went through town and over to the industrial park and walked
all around there.


Stopped to talk to Dave who was checking his 18 wheeler over
before hitting the road for the day.

When I got back to town walked the road behind our house
when we lived in town.


A couple turns around the ball park to finish up my
6 mile walk.

Joy was at the ball park too and I suggested she might like
to walk around the industrial park for a change.
She said she never thought about going there but it sounded like
a good idea and she would try it.

By the time I was going back home the sun was shining.

Stairs Number 9
This is my favorite one.
Ken thought it would make a great puzzle.
So I made one on Jigidi.
This LINK should take you to the puzzle where you can do it.

After breakfast we made a quick trip to Shop and Save.
Got things put away and while I did some stuff around the house,
Ken went out on his tractor to work on the road out back.

After lunch I got to go outside too.
I watched Ken make some progress on the road. 
There really wasn't anything for me to do so I just walked
 along on some of the trails.
Leaves were falling as I walked - sure seems like fall now.

Got another strip sewn on the baby blanket and should finish
sewing the last strip this evening.

Made Spicy Chicken sandwiches for supper.

Another beautiful fall day.
We are getting spoiled.

Thanks for stopping by.
A happy Tuesday to you. πŸ˜€

In October, a maple tree before your window 
lights up your room like a great lamp. 
Even on cloudy days, its presence helps to dispel the gloom.

Great colour in that tree.

Henny Penny said...

What an unusual set of stairs. I like them though. That tree is amazing. We have very little color here.

I think I'm going to bake your recipe for apple bread maybe tomorrow. Lots of apples in the house now.We had a big apple pancake for supper.

Have you heard of the book If you Give a Mouse a Cookie...well, If you give Rose a puzzle...that really did make a nice puzzle. I had to stop and help Roger get to bed.. The tree you showed is just so beautiful.

I love that tree picture. Fall is a beautiful season. I went over to your recipe blog and I think I will give that recipe a try. Hope your week is going well.Have a good Wednesday!

I will agree with Tom. Your first picture is a winner for sure. I am trying to work the puzzle, but I haven’t even found the corners yet. These stairs are the best yet!

That's a beautiful orange tree. I mean the leaves are orange, not that it produces oranges.

God bless.

What a beautiful tree!

Very cool steps picture...

Oh that quote! It makes me soooo miss when our bedroom was upstairs. My side of the bed, was next to a window, which looked out on an old hedge of trees. The Autumn maples would do just as the quote says. And when they were a pinky-gold, the room became the same color. -sigh-
