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 box of yarn


Walking in town at 6:20 this morning.
It was 44 degrees, calm with patchy fog in places.
Lots of sunshine too.

Sunrise was at 6:59
Morning Walk Steps were 13,570

Walked around town and the side streets first, before walking around both cemeteries and the ball park loop.

Quiet around town on this early Saturday morning.

Lisa and Dwayne were out walking and I met them on the way to the cemetery.  
Once up there I turned left and walked to the big barn.
Then back around the cemetery and then down to the other barn.

Just as I was getting in the jeep to go home I saw Sheila pull in the parking lot.

🙂         🥾         🌫         ☀️

After breakfast (a donut and a donut hole I made yesterday) we made a quick trip to the DG Market to get a few things.

Then I was off again to go to the library for a morning of knitting with the ladies.
There were just the 4 of us again, but it is really nice with a small group.
I made the last of the weave-it squares this week and now just have some sewing to do to finish this months baby blanket. 
One person was doing embroidery and the other two were knitting.
I think next week I'll bake some Welsh Cookies and bring them for the group.

I was getting a little low on yarn so ordered a box of it and this afternoon it came in the mail.  
Got a lot of blues this time because I don't have any blue at all left.

I play Solitaire on line once in a while and the other day I tried a new kind of solitaire called Flower Garden.
Has anyone ever played it before? 
I never get very far into the game before I lose.
Guess I just need more practice, but I find it very hard and can't imagine winning the game.

Happy Saturday
Thanks for popping in for a visit.

The yarn looks so pretty in the box. I work an online puzzle every day and one day this month...it was a box of yarn that looks very much like yours! Hugs!

Debbie is right - you need to enter some photo contests. You take some lovely photos.
I like your box of yarn, pretty blues in there.
Cute little button today too!

What a lovely assortment of yarn you chose. Pretty shades of blue.

I Haven't heard of Flower Garden Solitaire; I will search it out. Currently I am trying to get further along points wise with Mahjong Solitaire and recently I have become quite hooked on Spelling Bee on NYT games. I am from Canada and just recently signed up for a digital version of NYT for the year at a price I couldn't refuse. Must remember to cancel before anniversary date or price jumps up by 150%
I am watching your 20000 day stepping on Walker Tracker; way to go.

Hi Karen. You got a nice assortment of yarn. You do take lovely photos. I am assuming that you use your phone. What kind of phone do you have that takes such lovely pictures? I hope you have a good Sunday. See you then!

I never heard of this card game. I adore your photo of the mist around the red barn!! It should be in a magazine of calendar. Interesting button, maybe P.J.'s?

Ann said...

I used to play spider solitaire all the time. Not sure if I've ever heard of the one you're playing or not. Lately my game has been gin rummy.

O what a nice mist in the photo. I love it.

Debbie said...

Thanks for answering my photo contest question :) Well, if the town ever decides to hold a contest, you could easily win! Your photos are always amazing.

It sounds like a busy Saturday - the best kind! LOVE those colors of blue yarn.

Sandy said...

Good to see you're still getting good walks in. I like to wait til things warm up a bit more before heading out. You got some great photo's of the fog. Fun box of yarn, wish you post some pictures of your projects, love to see them.
