31 degrees this morning, calm and once the sun rose there
was a mix of sun and clouds.
Had a nice walk all around town with no worry of ice or snow.
Walked around both cemeteries, the ball park, and down
the main road a ways.
Joy was out walking and we stopped for a chat when I was coming
down from the cemetery and she was going up.
I could not believe my eyes when I saw this
A spring plant blooming in Dec in freezing temperatures.
I touched it to make sure it was real and it was.
Amazing isn't it?!!
Stopped for a chat with Paul who works for the town.
He told me some information about that old house in town that
had the vegetation cut down around it.
Years ago it was owned by Farmer Bill's (who I've mentioned whose farm
is on the Farm Loop walk) grandfather.
The owners after he died had it looking great Paul said and it
was a beautiful home.
Since then it has been sold several more times and the
man who owns it now bought it quite a few years ago.
He doesn't live around here and has just let it sit for years.
The town has taken him to court over it and he has to either
sell it or have it demolished. If he doesn't the land goes back to the
town and they will demolish the house.
So rumor has it that he is making it look presentable and then
will try to sell it.
Will be interesting to see what happens to it.
I walked 6 miles
The next town Christmas decoration is this Poinsettia.
It hangs at the intersection at the main road and the road
where we used to live in town.

The morning was for housework.
Today is Liz's birthday 🎈and her and David came over this afternoon
and we had birthday cake 🎂which I had baked yesterday.
It was the first time I used this recipe and it was a hit.
I sent the rest of the cake home with them!
We walked around Happy Trails a bit this afternoon.
We also put up some Christmas lights up on the railing of
the front porch.
An easy supper tonight of hot ham and cheese sandwiches
with a few potato chips.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy Wednesday to you. 🙂
