This morning when I woke up it was 35 degrees,
raining, foggy, and windy.
Figured I'd get soaked walking so didn't walk this morning.
It was supposed to warm up and stop raining later so I waited
and went for my walk after lunch.
This morning I did my everyday house chores and then finished
reading The Madness of Crowds by Louise Penny.
Wanted to finish it so I could drop it off at the library when
I went walking later which I did.
Also dropped off a DVD.
An old show called Simon and Simon - only watched a couple
episodes, just too corny!!!
Didn't look at my step count before I started walking so didn't
get the step count but did walk 5.6 miles.
The temperature was 43 degrees and windy.
My walk started out foggy and then finally the sun came out.
Walked around town, the ball park and both cemeteries.
Though it was nice to get out and walk, it is just not the
same as walking in the morning watching a new day begin.
I followed a couple of geese up the road to the cemetery.
They went in the field as I passed by.
Never a lot a cars about town but a Saturday afternoon there
are even fewer with no one going to work or school.
Didn't see anyone else out walking.
Took this picture when I started out.
And this is from the same spot at the end of my walk.
We ran out of ice cream a couple of days ago and still haven't gotten any.
(nothing on sale)
We've been eating cookies for our evening snack and today I made
chocolate pudding for later.
That's good too, not as good as ice cream but I'll put some whipped
cream on it and it will do just fine.
Thanks for stopping by.
Contentment is just the realization that God has already provided for me today
all that I need for my present peace and happiness.

The view sure looked more cheery at the end of your walk. Nice alternative to ice cream. Hope it goes on sale soon.
That goose walking shot made me smile.
Look the mysterious fog settling over everything.
...I love the view of the red barn!
Chocolate pudding sounds really good for a snack. I love that quote at the end. Hope you have a good Sunday. See you then!
Oh I really like the red barn and blue sky. Chocolate pudding sounds delish to me.
I love the last quote! And your last shot is gorgeous!! I also really got a chuckle from the goose walking up the path.
What a difference from the beginning and end of your walk. Those blue skies are beautiful.
I really like the geese!
And what a weather transition!!
Love the photos, great series. The geese are cute.
Happy Sunday, have a wonderful week!
Was that a wild goose chase? What is a wild goose chase anyway?
Every time I chased a goose it was civilised and said, "By Jove old boy ... it is a wonderful morning for a brisk walk, I should say ... what?"
I see geese a lot on my walks and it always strikes me as funny when they walk ahead of me, like they want me to follow them!
Nice to see that the goose prefers a nice walk too. I rather have pudding than an ice cream, the weather here isn't quite ice cream ready. :)
I love that you met up with some geese.
I love the quote from Nancy DeMoss. I can't think of her married name right now. You sure live in pretty country, quiet and peaceful looking. What fun to walk a while with the geese, looks like they're leading the way.
I Like that goose shot! The before and after shot is cool too. Nice to see the sun shining!
Great idea to take pictures before and after you set out on your walk. It looks like it cleared up nicely. I made chocolate pudding too today ( Sunday) when we were playing Dominoes. DH brought home some salted caramel ice cream which no one really likes. Well, I haven't offered it to my grandson yet. I think he'll want it.
