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

Decided to go to town and check out the walking places there.
Glad I did because I found places to walk.

Icy in places where I avoided walking.

Other places good so walked there.

Also walked down the main road toward home a ways, turned around
and then back to town.
Had to do a bit of back and forth down the same roads
but it sure was nice to get outside for a walk.

Didn't see anyone else out walking.

Temperature was 34 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds and a bit of a breeze too.
Sunrise - 7:27
Walk Steps - 12,807

I think this scene would make a good jigsaw puzzle.
I'll probably make a puzzle of it on Jigidi

I ate the last scone for breakfast this morning.
Next time I make them it will be blueberry ones.

We went out this morning to do some errands.
The dump in Grantesville and then over to the library.
Back in our town we went to our library also and then the Dollar General.
Home in time for lunch.

In the afternoon I read, puzzled, and made a few weave-its.

Thanks for popping in for a visit.
Hope you had an enjoyable Saturday.

Debby - Ken was in the Navy and was stationed in Edzell. A most enjoyable 4 years.  Our daughter Debbi was born there.

Anni and Vee - Didn't hang the Bosson heads in a group.  They are scattered around the house.

By the way my favorite Bosson head is the Lifeboatman.

Ginny - Chalkware is made of moulded plaster of Paris or sculpted gypsum and painted with oils or watercolors.

I love the picture with the red house and the wood fence made me happy, it's so country. Have I ever told you I love anything and everything 'country.' :)

I know you've heard me say this many times, but you are my hero . . . getting out there and walking almost every single day winter, spring, summer and fall. It truly takes grit. Bravo!

Like so many of your wonderful pictures, this one would make a great puzzle.

Glad you could get out to walk! That really would be a nice puzzle! Enjoy your Lord's day...

Vee said...

That picture would make a great puzzle. Will you crop it some? Otherwise, you'll have lots of the same colors. I can "hear" how happy you were to be outside walking.

First time I’ve noticed the quote in your header by Elizabeth von Arnim. It’s perfect! Interesting to me that although we are 3 time zones apart, our local sunrise time is close … 7:27 for you, 7:40 for me. I prefer not to walk in the dark, so I usually start about half an hour before sunrise. That seems to work pretty well for me. When do you like to start?

Ginny Hartzler said...

Thanks for your answer; I learned something new. I agree, that photo would make a great jigsaw. You live in such a lovely area! It seems just perfect; not really in a big city, and just enough nature to not be in the woods.

Linda said...

I’m glad you got out for a walk. Don’t get too cold.

I'll admit the snow looks wonderful.

God bless.

Ann said...

You are so right, that one picture would make a great jigsaw puzzle. It's a beautiful scene.

Hootin Anni said...

I agree ...it would make a great puzzle. I often "see" jigsaw puzzle material with photos too!!!

The first and last photos are favorites. The last one would make a great puzzle. Have a great day and happy new week!

I went to Dollar General yesterday and my favorite Key Lime pies! I'm also working on a puzzle, but one for 9-year olds and up. I love to see the snow in your pictures and imagine your early morning walks. It must be so lovely.

I love experiencing your walking path through your words. I hope to get back to my daily walking soon. It's been quite dreary and sunless here for the past month. I'm looking forward to Spring!

Bill said...

Glad you found some good places to walk. Always be careful for the icy patch.

Mari said...

Pretty places for a walk! Yes, that photo would make a great puzzle!

Kim said...

What a beautiful day! Glad you were able to get out in it. 🤗

William Kendall said...

That last one really stands out.

Rose said...

I love all the pics...I too, think that last one would make a great puzzle!
