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

Slip Covers

 Sunny and cool this morning for walking.
41 degrees with a little breeze.
Sure nice walking weather!!!
Sunrise 5:54
Morning Walk Steps 13,204

Had another DVD and a book to drop down the slot at the library
so went there first.

Then walked up and down the main road and side streets.

Around both cemeteries and over to the big barn.
A few cows are still left and were enjoying their breakfast.

Walked on down to see the Drane house garden.
Looks neat and tidy.

Continued walking over to the ball park and walked a few loops around there. 
Bill was getting ready to mow and weed wack the area.
Stopped to talk for a bit.

I walked down by the stream at the ball park and spotted this
heart rock in the water.
I always think of Anni when I see a heart in nature so this is for you Anni.

Not long after I took the heart picture I felt my wrist vibrate so
headed back to the Jeep.

☀️    🥾    😊

We have two smallish chairs with black and white checked slip covers 
that we got at Ikea some years ago.
I took the covers off and washed them today.
A bit awkward hanging them on the line.

Thought I might have some trouble putting the covers back on
the chairs but they went back on without a problem
and they sure look better now they are nice and clean.

A couple of deer passing by our bedroom widow.

Baked some Chocolate Chippers for the kids at Sunday school for snack time.  
Have another batch to bake.
These are for June 11, but I'll put them in the freezer till then.

Back outside again this afternoon to putter some more around
Happy Trails and went for a walk too.

Once again ended up on the porch reading.
Started the book for the June's book club meeting.
French Braid

Ken had to go to the library to make copies and I went along
with him and picked out a few more DVD's to watch.
Hope we have better luck with these then the last ones I picked out!!

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Thursday.

...when I walked on the beach in Maui I like to find heart shaped coral pieces. Those chairs are smart looking.

Nice to see your cozy corner with the newly cleaned chair covers. Seeing them on the clothesline you have to wonder how they will ever fit?

How nice to have deer walking past your window. Great photo.

God bless.

Bill said...

That's nice when the deer drop by for a visit.

Had to chuckle at the slipcovers on the line. When I first saw them, I wondered what kind of critter wore them. They look wonderful on thechairs so it is good that they launder well.

The deer get a smile from me.

I love your corner seating arrangement. The slipcovers are such a great look, and oh-so-clean.
