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

A visit with Bettye

 25 degrees this morning for walking.
It was calm and sunny once the sun rose.
Sunrise 7:06
Walking Steps 12,569

The road work was done when I got to town.
A little bit later all the equipment got loaded on to trailers and
was carted off to do the next job.

Walked to the library first and dropped off a DVD.
One we picked up yesterday - Shades of Blue.
We watched about 15 minutes of the pilot and knew this was
not a series we would enjoy!!

Continued walking through town and then went to the cemetery
on the hill.
At the entrance to the cemetery, if you turn right it leads to the
Drane house and the barn with the girls.

Left leads to the new big barn.

Walked around the cemetery a few times and went to see the cows
in the big barn. Some of those cows look like they will be 
mama cows VERY soon.

Next walked to the ball park and around there and then back and
walked around the other cemetery.

The pond about 2 miles into my walk.

 This is at the end of my walk on the way back to the Jeep.

Didn't see anyone else out walking.
Pretty quiet out there.

I went to visit Bettye after doing a couple of things around the house.
Took her some of the Shrimp Macaroni Salad and Lemon Poppyseed muffins 
I made yesterday.

We had a nice visit chatting about this and that.
Had the salad for lunch.
So nice to be able to visit her in her home.

That about took care of the day.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
Happy Wednesday

Nellie - all the cows in the big barn are mama cows either with their little ones or about to calf.  Farmer Marvin breeds and raises the cows and bulls and eventually sells them.
