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

 I arrived at town and started walking at 6:40.
It was 31 degrees and sunrise was at 7:25
with a mix of sun and clouds once the sun came over the mountain.
Such a beautiful sky this morning.
Looks like the ocean to me.

A couple of people out running this morning.
The man who does laps around the all park and Sheila running through town.

I walked all around town, both cemeteries and the ball park.

Walking around the ball park the chickens all came over by me.
They thought I had food!

Stopped at Pam's house to give her the recipe and cookies for the woman who asked for the recipe.
When I got there Kinsley and her mom were there.
Kinsley was all dressed up for a program she was in at school today.
Her mom said I could take her picture.
She is such a delight and for some reason has taken a liking to me.  
She is always smiling and gives me the best hugs.

Baked Lemon Cookies this morning.

Got the last of this weeks cleaning done.

I've been writing out Christmas cards this afternoon and should be done
 by tomorrow. 
Plan to  have them in the mail on Monday.

Also worked on one of the knitting gifts I need to get done.
Shouldn't have any trouble finishing them all.
Still have some more baking to do also.

It's Friday and you know what that means.
Ken's making it right now.

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by.

We had a pretty sunrise here this morning too, but not as bold of colors as yours! Just beautiful!

Kinsley is a cutie. I could understand why she would take a liking to you. You have such a kind spirit, Karen.

Enjoy your pizza!
