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

Another work day

 55 degrees this morning and cloudy when I walked.
Sunrise 5:50
Morning Walk Steps - had to keep steps to just over 10,000 
because had to be back home by 8:00.

Walked through town and up and down the side streets.
Then it was around the lower cemetery, continued over to the
ball park and around the loop a couple of times.
Lastly around the cemetery on the hill.

Saw Kinsley getting dropped off at day care and got
a big smile and a hug from her.
Shiela was taking her morning run.
The man I see once in a while lately was out walking his dog.
Will have to introduce myself to him one of these days.

Each day more work gets done on the church.

☁️    🥾    🚶‍♀️    😊

We left for church at 8:30 for another Fingerprints Ministry
work day.
Today work was from 9:00 - 1:00.
Another day with a good turn out of people working and
yesterday and today we got over 12,000 Romans books done.
Today I did a little stapling and all of the cutting.
Cutting is my favorite thing to do.

We stopped for lunch on the way home.

I made a lemon cake (box) this afternoon and whipped up
some whipping cream for the icing.
We ran out of ice cream so that will be are snack this evening.

Did a little reading and knitting.

A few rain showers during the day sometimes when the sun was out.
but it was a mostly cloudy day.

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Friday

I made a lemon cake yesterday, also from a mix. After a visit from various children/grands it is now half gone 😀

Mari said...

The church is looking so nice!
I just saw a recipe for some lemon blueberry bread that sounded good. Your cake reminded me of that.
