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

50 things


This morning was even warmer than yesterday.
54 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds that quickly turned
to just clouds.  Quite a wind blowing up too.

Had a quiet walk around town, once around the cemeteries,
the ball park, and over to and around the industrial park.
Saw Margaret and Joy walking but at a distance.

The tiny horse was down near the bulls, and though
she wouldn't look at me I took a picture anyway.

Walked 6 miles

Bench Number 17
Taken by the Firefly, the place in town where they make cheese.

I peeked in the window at the store in its new location
and it is really nice inside.
Now it has room to have some tables inside and it all looks 
nice and neat and tidy.

Left for church right after breakfast for a work morning
of Blankets for Babies.
Handed in my latest blanket and started the one for next month.
There were 8 of us working today.
Someone brings breakfast and then another
gives a short devotional.
I ate breakfast at home so didn't eat anything.
Since it is Thanksgiving month, last time it was suggested
that we all tell something we are thankful for this time in place
of the devotional.
Instead of just naming one thing I thought I'd be different and made a list of 50 things I am thankful for.
Here's my list in no particular order except for number one
which I am MOST THANKFUL for.
Here is my list.

  1. My Salvation

  48. Plenty to eat

  50. Every new day

On the way home from church it started to rain and has been
raining the rest of the day.

Had lunch when I got home and then made a few more 
weave-its and read.

Seemed like a good day for pizza so I got some pizza
dough made in the bread machine and as usual
Ken made the actual pizza.

Last night I finished knitting Ken his neck scarf that is just
a knitted cap without the top.
The first one I made didn't turn out, the yarn was too
stretchable and was soon out of shape.
This one I made is just right.
You can see it HERE.

Well that's going to be it for today.
Hope your day was a good one. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️

Cute mini horse. Great 50 list. Would love to go thru the cheese shop.
