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

One last move


Got to town and started walking at 6:23 this morning.
It was 51 degrees, cloudy, and a bit breezy.
Sunrise was at 7:10.

I saw a little peek of blue sky when walking but it only lasted a couple of minutes before the clouds covered it up again.

Walked through town and back again and kept going down the main road toward home a ways before turning around and heading back to town.

Took a detour up and down Sale Barn Road.

Continued through town again and then walked around both of the cemeteries.

Rebecca was out walking Leo and Dwayne was walking on his own this morning without Lisa.

Pretty quiet around town. 
Still no modular house on the lot by the cemetery which was supposed to happen this week.
One day left, maybe tomorrow.

Another dead skunk in the road.

On the way back home I saw the twin fawns - getting big!!

Morning Walk Steps were 14,446

🙂         🥾         ☁️

By lunch time the sun shinning ending 6 days of dreary weather.
We had a high of 60 degrees and breezy - sure felt like fall today.

I made a bit of a change to my reading corner.
Moved my old secretary desk to the corner too.
Since it had shelves with books on it thought it should be in the reading corner as well.

I ripped out the shawl that I started knitting the other day.
Changing the pattern to knit/purl wasn't working out, it was starting to roll and I knew it would bother me.
So I have started it over and this time will knit the whole thing like I did the other one.

There were a mess of wild turkeys roaming out back today.
Must have been a least a dozen of them.

Happy Thursday and thanks for stopping by.

Love the old cabin picture! I have a friend who is going to be living in one soon. Rainy morning here turning into a cloudy afternoon. Made a pork roast with fixins for dinner. Janice

The secretary desk is a perfect addition. It looks so good, like a little mini library. I have a secretary desk, but it has drawers on the bottom half. I have never seen one with open shelving on the bottom. Is it very old? I like the paintings on the wall!

Your reading corner is so inviting and charming! The secretary desk is a good addition.
Our twin fawns at work are growing too, their spots are nearly gone.

Hi Karen. I love your reading corner! How inviting! I also love the pictures you have on your wall. Everything looks so homey. Another week almost done. Glad the sun came out for your today. See you again tomorrow.

I like your reading corner. The secretary desk was the perfect addition.
My brother used to get lots of turkey roaming through the woods behind his house.

You have a lot of patience, knitting

The desk looks nice in your reading corner. I would like to see the wild turkeys in my yard. We did see some sunshine yesterday. Take care, have a wonderful weekend.

Debbie said...

Your reading corner looks very inviting for an afternoon of reading. And another skunk? Oh boy! Maybe the turkeys will scare them away! :)

The reading corner looks fantastic.

Love your reading corner. I could be happy there all day!

Nice that the sunshine returned after the dreary days. Even if all days ( well, almost all days) are good walking days the sunny ones put more spring in my steps. I remember seeing big flocks of wild turkeys when we traveled, especially in Fall. They seem to be more noticeable then.

A nice functional reading corner. We had some turkeys run through this morning. Hope the shawl knitting goes smoothly now!

That bit of blue sky is welcome to see.
