Driving down my road this morning it was like driving through
a wildlife preserve with all the deer.
I had to drive very slowly, deer on both sides of me and
crossing the road from both sides.
They were all taking their sweet time, just slowly walking around.
It was really something!!!
Would have taken a picture but it was dark.
Kinsley was getting dropped off at daycare and she
came running over to me calling Ms Karen and gave me a big hug.
That put a smile on my face and a great way to start the day!!
Walked up and down the main road and side streets,
the ball park loop and the two cemeteries.
Went down to see the 'girls' in the muddy barnyard.
I was walking down from the cemetery and Farmer Marvin was on his
way up in his truck and he stopped to say hi.
He told me the barnyard the girls are in will be getting cleaned up today.
He usually puts a bunch of hay around and it soaks up some of
the mud, at least for a while.
He asked me if I'd been up to the new barn.
I told him part way but didn't know if I should go there.
He assured me it was no problem and I was welcome to any time.
Saw RuthAnn out walking her two dogs around the block.
Phil was out moving trucks around in the car lot.
The logs that were cut down clearing the land in town
are being loaded up and carted off today.
Stopped to talk to the man loading up.
It was a great walk and got to talk to a lot of people today.
Just as I was getting back to the Jeep I felt the first drops of rain.

Yesterday at blankets for babies Marilyn brought a quilt she made for us to see.
Pam and Marilyn held it up so I could take a picture.
Marilyn saved up lots of the salvage edges of fabric she has used in
other quilts and made a quilt out of them.
Except for the red in the quilt the whole thing is made up of the salvages.
I thought it was beautiful and amazing!!

I was going to read for a little while this afternoon and then knit
but once I started reading I kept on reading till I finished the book.
Death With a Double Edge by Anne Perry.
It's a Daniel Pitt book and I gave it a 5 Star!!
A real page turner for me and couldn't put it down.
Before I knew it it was supper time!!
Thanks for visiting.
The secret of contentment is the realization that life is a gift,
not a right.
