There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

A chilly 30 degrees on my morning walk this morning, clear and a great sunrise, Thanksgiving is almost upon us, have some cooking to do, going to my dad's. Put up my Christmas tree and decorations, ( they usually up at Halloween but didn't make it this year), then going to decorate at my mothers. No black Friday shopping for us. We do not go into that mess. I will not be on here again till next Monday so have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless you all.

Praise of Thanksgiving
I praise Him for another beautiful day,my salvation,His Word ,prayer my family, my ministry, my job, my friends,I praise Him that He has a plan for my life and He is in all the details.I praise Him that I have a roof over my head, autos to drive.
I praise Him for my health, that I can walk, talk, see and hear, taste, enjoy the blessings that He gives me.
Praise The Lord.

Cool 25 degrees this morning with frost, only had to scrap my windshield 3 time all last winter, now 2 times already. Still walked this morning, 70 minutes. Clear and beautiful sunrise.

Storms came through Saturday with a bang, strong winds and rain but didn't last 10 minutes, then just strong wind gales after that for a while, so glad it was not as bad on us, up north they got it much worse. Just cold now.

Have a blessed day

It seems his parents are not to concerned, probably there's more to it than I know. I just know he is going to have a rough life if they don't straighten him out.

Cold walk at first this morning, 34 degrees but it was a clod wind, I warmed up though as I got into the walk, 70 minutes of walking. Cloudy to, Saturday is supposed to be strong winds of 40 - 60 mph and rain but we will see.

Have a blessed weekend

Sounds like you earned a pleasant walk.. UGH also sounds like that kid needs a special placement. They have schools where troubled kids can go for extra socialization and one on one teaching .Maybe some one really needs to speak to the parents about his education needs. Sounds like he is a not good for the other kids. He probably needs our love more then the others poor kid
Its up to 52* I laid in bed until 6:30 this morning What a slug.... Went out to let the critters out now I am having tea still in my PJ's
Won't last long though I have a list of things to do .
Have a blessed day :)

Oh it was fun last night, had one boy punch another in the throat, but the one that got punched is the one who provoked it. He is a middle school boy who messes all over himself and mean #2, and he smelled so bad, he was trying to get the other boy to set by him because no one would. This was on the bus, we had to roll down the windows and people were gagging, it was that bad. Then I had to have a talk with his parents, they blame it on medication, whatever, teach your child to clean himself, he always has an odor. What a night.

Did have a great walk this morning, 46 degrees and clouds moving off, so there was some sun.

Have a blessed day

A light frost this morning, yesterday was just great weather wise for this time of year, mid 50's, sun shining.

Walked an hour this morning, and it was nice then, a great sunrise, clouds moving in now though with rain in the area. Send some of that 70 degree weather this way.

Church youth tonight, lessons starting on Christmas, tonight is about Mary.

Have a blessed day

Grandson was not there when we seen the bobcat, he would have been excited though. He is so ready for Santa.

Seen a couple of squirrels packing green leaves into their holes in the trees, guess they getting ready for winter and little ones soon. It is a beautiful fall day today, still cool but sun is out and so are the birds. Got in a 70 minute walk early but watched the sunrise as I walked, then set in the swing for a few minutes before work. Soaking in the sun.

We had a few busy days. The dogs were groomed we got the bamboo that was in the burn pile burned. We have been working after dinner trying to get in extra steps. We are really doing good. I aim for 15K every day and I am hitting that goal very often,
Finished the squares for my next afghan I still need to assemble it. I think it is important to do something creative.
Did your Grandson enjoy seeing the bob cat. I still think it is a thrill to see big animals in the wild

41 and cloudy on my morning walk, was misting rain earlier but that stopped before I started, got in a 75 minutes walk this morning. Misted rain all day yesterday, but that better than heavy rain.

Was gone all day Saturday, spent the day with my grandson, we had a lot of missed playtime to make up on. We did see a big bobcat behind the house, had heard rumors of him before.

Have a blessed day

50 and sunny today. I need to go out soon and let the critters out. Looking like the dogs could get their baths today .Jimmy is waiting on some one to stop by so we won't be going any where
Yesterday I got a nice walk in after dinner and picked up all y down bamboo and hauled it over to the burn pile Jimmy burned .My pile was so big I couldn't throw any more bamboo up on top of it.Still need to cut back some bamboo on the other side of the garden that has come inside the fence and I need to repair the fence on the side I just cut. Gardening keeps you busy ..hahaha
I like staying busy
Have a nice date nite Be blessed

It is dreary again this morning . I like the sunny days the best. I need to bathe the dogs and I always blow dry them out side . So much hair blows off a wet corgi and I have 2 of them. LOL But I wont blow them outside if it isn't in the 60's I do want them chilled .They are good old boys and deserve to be treated well . My Jack Russel does not need a blow out so I can do him anytime. HA Girl problems Right. Wish the problems with the world were so hard
You do have a big class. It is nice that you are there to teach them. I must say I would hate the responsibility of driving a bus after dark .I don't see as good at night as I used to . Seems to be a problem the slides in quietly after 50
I am off today not completely sure what I will be doing . Just lazy so far. Guess I need to go let the birds out. I wait until it is fully light so we have less sneak attacks from the lurkers that think they are tasty. Have seen coyote and bob cat tracks out there and I had a visual on a fox a couple of months ago so know we have one of those around too.. Farmer problems hahahah

I had 16 kids last night, group is growing, have some that talk all the time,but that is teenagers, and I could fight with them or teach but I have 2 girls that seem to be undergoing some bullying at school. They listen so if I can at least help them. i do have others that listen too, just a couple of boys that are hard headed, I know us guys can be hard headed...lol

Got in a 60 minute walk this morning, 35 degrees and clear, then went and set in the swing for a little bit and enjoyed the sunrise, I don't like this time of year as well, do not like it getting dark so early, bus route taking kids home last night was in the dark. Only 130 days till spring....yay

Another great walk this morning, 44 degrees, rain had moved out. Felt much better yesterday, went home, ate supper, set and read my daily Bible readings. It was dark when I got home with clouds and time change. Just felt relaxed last night though.

Got my wild youth tonight, I have about 15 kids now in class, most are good, have 2 boys that yak a lot. Got some ground rules to go over first though, some were getting routy with each other last week, need to go back to separate boys and girls classes but do not have a teacher for the girls right now.

Have a safe trip and a blessed day

I know the feeling, less light in the evening, cloudy and dark at 5 when I get off. Felt stressed yesterday afternoon, storms and rain, less sunshine, had not eaten well yesterday either, skipped lunch.Felt better after supper.

Walked outside this morning, rains had moved on, but when I get to the end of my walk, it starts a short rain, like God is saying that is enough for now. Happened yesterday like that and last week too. Got a 70 minute walk in today.

Have a blessed day

Morning had a great weekend lots of steps. Another good day yesterday. Was back out cutting bamboo after my walk. I have started on the inside of the fence . Will need to separate the fence. We put up a smaller mesh inside the original fence to keep the quail out. The bamboo has it all askew. I will be able to attach it to the outside of the fence now ( hopefull)
Meeting after work today then going to the movie not thinking it is going to be a big step day. WHile the light is nice in the morning it gives me less day light hours to get yard /critter chores done :( I hate this time of year

Got in a 70 minute walk this morning, had rain come through in the middle of the night, but cleared out now, still cloudy, did get a little sun over the weekend. Date night at the lake on Saturday night while the sun was out.

This mornings walk was so nice, felt like spring ( which is on;y 133 days away), night-crawlers were all over the pavement after the rain and birds were loving it, cardinals and robins busy eating breakfast and singing away. There was actually daylight on my walk this morning, then I remember the time change, yea there is going to be day light now, and glad of that.

Have a blessed day

Love those pictures Marty, it is just great to get out like that and have some quite time. Get away from everything and such a beautiful view.

Could not get on here yesterday was just to busy, finished with 21 212 steps, 12 miles of walking before the day was done. I slept good last night.

Had another good walk this morning, cloudy bit dry, now it is pouring down rain, but shouldn't last to long. Walked 70 minutes this morning,

Have a blessed weekend

Great Pictures, looks so nice there.

Only had 4 trick or treaters last night, one was my grandson, so as usual got candy left over and that was after loading the treaters up. Craving chocolate now......
Rain today, supposed to be rainy for the next week.... but did walk outside this morning, threw on my old hat and coat, just a light rain and only at times, so wasn't to bad, just stayed close to shelters just in case.
Got my wild youth tonight and bus route.

Have a blessed day

October 31, 2017 (Today)
Activity: 11,250 steps (5.2 miles)

Virtual hike of
Appalachian Trail
Done: 2,050.7 miles
To-Do: 151.3 miles

Well since Camp ended I have barely got any steps in. I took the car to the garage today, walked home and enjoyed a hike near the golf course
I must really force myself to walk... Dalhousie used to force me, now all he wants is a walk to the bottom of the third floor Condo to the grass area at the entrance.

Monday we took him out

Today sights...

Been a wild day, did have a great walk this morning, 37 degrees and felt good, clear and sunny today, hope it stays that way, ( but temps could come up some, 70's - 80's that's ok).

Getting ready for trick or treater's tonight, actually I have been a trickster today, using Halloween as my excuse.

Have a blessed day

Good Morning My shorts are away for the mornings for sure 44* out there now. I will walk when I get off work. I only got 12282 yesterday I don't get off work until 9 and then had to stop at the store so it killed my morning. I did get my walk in but did not work in the yard. We went to the movies yesterday and by the time we got home it was getting dark so no time for late day walk. But had fun so its okay.
We always dreamed of walking the Appalachian trial too ..We used to hike one part of it and dream when we were 15 or so. But like you said life happens
Grand kids are coming over night My son has to work and his x wife will be out of town for work .Only bad thing will be getting them up and out in the morning to have then over to their town in time for school in the morning.. Lord I pray they are cooperative LOL
Off to work with me Be Blessed

Almost there Marty... keep it up only 200 miles to go on the Appalachian Trail. Looking back that is one thing I would have done when I was younger, hike the real Appalachian trail, back before life got busy.

My step goal is 10,000 a day but not happy if it doesn't go well over. 12 208 yesterday and that was a rainy dreary day.

This morning was a great walk, 50 degrees and clear, felt so good. Rest of the week supposed to be colder. Have a feeling that the shorts will be put away for the rest of the year, walking in long pants and hoodies.

Have a blessed day.

I have been walking every morning after work and then cutting and hauling bamboo over to the burn pile. I have been shooting for 15000 steps a day as my minimum and I have been doing really good at that goal.
Getting colder today. It is a cold steady wind out there. I will at least get my walk in. They are talking snow here too for the higher elevations. I am with you. It is pretty but only if I do not have to deal with it LOL

Well had a hiking trip planned for last Saturday, but our friends who were going with us, He got called into work, so my wife and me just hiked some local trails after I mowed the yard. Saturday was so nice weather wise.

Today we have a big rain and colder weather coming in after the rain.One lady told me she saw where we were getting snow Saturday but I do not see that anywhere and ground is still to warm to stick. I think she just likes that white stuff, I like it only in pictures.

I did walk this morning outside, it was a lite rain at the that time so old hiking hat and umbrella and I got my walk in.

Funny even with out knowing the scripture I do believe that. When I told my mom about the rock she said she had chills.God always leaves us reminders of his presences we just have to look and believe. I know there is scripture for the word believe too. But I want that tattooed on my arm
Took the boys for a walk at the big park yesterday. It is flat and did not seem like much they were on leashes it was about 4000 steps. Last night they were pretty stiff in the back legs. Thinking we might have to start leaving the older boys home :( that always breaks my heart.
We are going to hike the arroyo this morning should be pretty we had rain last night. Then need hay ,Then a trip to the home improvement store to price paint and soffet material .It is starting to cool down enough that we can start working outside with out dying of the heat.
Have a blessed weekend

Cool - the rock with Faith on it, here is a scripture for you to go along with it. "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours". Mark 11:24 Prayers for healing for you

Happy Anniversary too.

Great walk today, sunny and warmer. Was wore out last night, got home about 9:30, had a mission meeting to go, and it didn't get over till 9, then a 20 mile drive home.

Have a blessed weekend

Good morning ,I got in some shopping after work and some walking got it up to 16744.I was happy with that. I am going to go out and walk for a while in a little bit as soon as it gets light .
Being lazy in PJ's having a cup of tea now.
It is sort of overcast maybe we will get some rain.
Wedding anniversary today 15 years :) I was really pleased with what the dr said sounds like we could get another 15.
They play a game in this town where people paint rocks and hide them. When you find them you can keep them or re-hide them .It is a fun way to get kids outdoors and moving. Big people play too. Any way I had not found a rock until I was at the dr in the lobby of the office with all the cancer literature was a big rock that just said FAITH on it. It was so perfect .I left it for the next person who needed a reminder. But I shared a photo to the FB page to let the leaver know that it had been found. Do the play that there yet. I guess it is something that is starting to happen across our nation
Better get moving Have a blessed day :)

I got in 17000 steps yesterday, made myself finish out with 17000, when I looked last night, it said 16821 so I went ahead and put in a few more.

Sounds like Doctor visit was a good one, still praying for you all.

Got another good walk in this morning, 39 degrees but felt warmer than yesterday. Got my youth tonight and bus route.

Glad you got your work done :) I have boots too but usually wear crocs to walk around. They are not good at all in rough terrain.
Dr was very positive and full of information, For nor they will just monitor if it takes a turn for the worse they will use chemo. She said if you had to pick a cancer this would be the one to go with.
Today is my Friday. I think I am getting a cold. Looking forward to getting some rest but first errands after work. got 18799 steps yesterday. mostly talking on the phone. I make myself walk when I am on the phone LOL

Tree cut and yard mowed worked till dark. Finished with almost 16000 steps, 8 miles.

37 degrees this morning on my walk, wore my hiking cloths and hiking boots even though on pavement, needed to get use to them again, most usually I wear tennis shoes but unknown terrain this weekend I will wear my boots.

Praying for you all for good results at the doctor.

God Bless you all

Hope you got your tree cut. Very happy it missed your house. Winds are so scary . Ww get bad winds here.
I have been cutting my bamboo. It is 150 steps to the burn pile so I am getting plenty of steps hauling it back and forth. I am working on it for about 90 minutes every morning after my walk . Have been getting about 5-6 miles a day. Maybe I will loose a pound. ;) For some reason I seem to be gaining, Have been holding for the last 3 years. I don't think I am eating more. Hmmm I have been tracking food again so we shall see .
$5.00 movie and Hubby's Dr appointment tomorrow
Be Blessed :)

Computers still driving me nuts this morning, finally got them straightened out.

Good cool walk today, 52 degrees with a hoodie, supposed to be 42 for tomorrows walk. We had a cold front come through yesterday, radar was showing heavy rain bit all we got was the winds and a couple of sprinkles. The wind was enough, it brought down a big tree that just barely missed the house, going to be cutting it up this evening, need to mow too.

Did spend Saturday with grandson, we went for pizza and then on to arcades and games, he loved it.

Have a blessed day

We had breakfast in the garden this morning then headed into town to hit the feed store and a few thrift stores. It was such a nice day.
Back to work in the morning.
Best to avoid poultry lice at all cost they will make you miserable. I got bit up once as a kid cleaning my aunts coop and once as an adult when I worked at a humane society our feed shed there somehow got infested it was terrible .Everyone there was chewed up before we figured it out.The vets were doing skin scrapings on us and checking us for fungus. It was a nightmare. We got into lots of fun oddities at the shelter hahahaha ringworm was also popular emoticon
Have a great weekend
Always blessed

Cool walk this morning, 48 degrees, but sun is out and it is clear, hoodie felt good during walk.

Computers been driving me crazy this morning, this will not print or this will not open, it's either one thing or another.

No big plans this weekend that I know of, was going to a fall festival but discovered they had turkey mites on the hayride and people were being eat up so staying away from that one.

Have a blessed weekend.

It is nice having the fire in the back yard. Very relaxing, We have not used it in a while because it has been so hot and the bugs have been so bad. Also it stays light so long over the Summer we sort of miss it because we also go to bed very early. I start my day at 4 AM during the work week. by 9 this girl wants to be in bed
No walk yesterday ,Did get some of the squash in, The one weighs 16 pounds .Going to be a lot of good eating .Baked some chocolate cookies with the rest of the zucchini .They are also yummy and freeze well so we will have them for a while ( if I can keep hubby out of them HAHAHA)
Not sure what we are doing yet today But I hope it involves moving I did not get good steps yesterday.
The dr called Hubby has an appointment Tuesday so hopefully we will get some good information
Be blessed

Fire pit, I havenít had this pleasure yet since the fire ban was lifted. Still too drained , too hot , too cold ... not motivated. We have been going to bed between 7:30 and 9 every evening. Would be going to bed at 7:30 every night except Im addicted to a couple of tv shows that end at 9.
Well the camp season is soon winding down, my virtual hike of the Appalachian Trail is nearing completion.
Yesterday I felt good, it was sunny so in the afternoon I went for a long walk to get those steps in. I would like to finish before camp ends .. not likely to happen though. If not the first week of November will be my goal.

Been chilly here ,Not to bad in the afternoons. Yesterday was shopping day. Last night we had a little fire in our fire pit and sat under the stars. It was nice. Chilly enough to enjoy the fire. It was relaxing.
Today I will make our to go meals and maybe some cookies to use up the last of the zucchini. Have to wait on one of my egg guys to come so I will do home stuff. Tomorrow can be play day . Still no word from the oncologist so we don't have a plan there yet. Hope all goes well with your friend and with your sister. Heart surgery used to be so scary now it seems so common pace .Amazing the knowledge we are capable of .
Have a blessed day :)

PS Great job Marty !!!!

My friend has 4 blockages so he will have surgery, learned last night my sister is having 2 stints put in her heart, simple procedure for her.

Walked this morning with clouds over head and it was so muggy and humid, odd for this time of year. Walked an hour, sweat pouring off. Cloudy still but radar not showing rain, but at least now there is a breeze and feels cooler.

Have a blessed day and get those goats fed..lol

I agree. We are all rushed in today's world. So much terrible stuff going on around us it takes a toll.
I hope your friend will be okay. Sending many prayers for him
I also took a walk after work. I have been taking one every morning . Not long but just getting out there before I start anything else.
It was chilly this morning. Felt very Fallish. I better cut my winter squash and bring them in.
Let's just stay positive and keep on walking and feeling always blessed because we truly are ;)

He is healed of the cancer but now this. We and I mean all of us are just so much rushed everyday now and stressed.Too much ugly going on in the world today too.

Sorry your hike was cut short. I hate having dumb knees then have been tricky since I was in my teens. Do they always bother your wife? Hope it heals up soon.
Heard back from the dr. It is a cancer so we are waiting to get in with the next dr to see what the next step is. It does not sound to terrible . Guess we will see what the next doc says

Good to see you back on Marty, great pictures as always.
SW now go get them goats feed or they will start hollering again...lol

Trip was ok, didn't get as much as a hike like I wanted, wife's knee got to bothering her so we had to cut it short. She doesn't walk like I do so she not as use to it.

Hurricane Nate came through Saturday night and Sunday, but light rain, praise the Lord, we only end up 1.3 inches, towns to the west of us got like 6 inches of rain.

Yall have a blessed day

Thank you so much,
Yes fishing at lunchtime would be awesome. We do not have much water here so no place to fish.I love to be in natures. One of my favorite things to do is go up to the coffee house that sits on the river. It is loud so you can hear it while you relax on the deck. You can take a book and relax for hours . Inside there are women that meet with cards for lunch . Such a wonderful atmosphere .
I am off today. Still in Jammies being lazy. Guess I have to go let the birds out . It is light and I know they goats would appreciate some hay :)
Have a blessed day

Lifting you and your family up in prayer. Requesting God to wrap his arms around you so you can feel his love, Praying that you all receive comfort and understanding during this.

Hope your challenge goes well this weekend as well. I need to get back into more fishing, have a lake that is about 5 minutes from work and during my lunch time use to run out to it and fish, always took my lunch with me.

Had another great walk today, day 15 with no rain but not complaining.

Glad you having a good time with them.

We had a great weekend, went to another fall festival, went on hayride, had a great weekend with grandson. Even went down to the creek and played with him.

A great walk this morning, a cool 48 degree walk, but what a sunrise.

Have a blessed day

Hope you are feeling better
You are right they love to eat. They have a pot luck every Sunday .It is a great fellowship.We live in a small town I have met a lot of the people there at the farmers market. I take eggs to sell on Saturday morning over the Summer. My client love to be a part of stuff like that so we set up a table. He really enjoys it. Pastor Randy will often come to the house to pick him up to help at the food bank or to do their men's lunch when the ladies are doing their bible study group. I am very impressed.
We went to El Paso today and poked around in the stores down there. I have sort of been missing my fish tank.Thought I would check out the tanks they have available now. Man they got pricey And I think I don't have enough room for what I want. Oh well it was worth the look. WE had a nice lunch at the Chinese place .
Back to work in the morning
Be Blessed

You might try the baptist church of your person you care for. When they realize you is his caregiver , they should start loving on you from he start. Just get involved and you will start to see the love. And remember Baptist love to eat...lol (something we always say), so when they have a meal, celebrate with them. You will start seeing family in them and they will pray with you about your husband or any other needs you have, nothing like having a praying family.

Had another great walk this morning, 56 degrees and felt so good. Didn't get yard mowed, went home yesterday with stomach bothering me, guess t will be Monday before the grass gets a haircut.

Have a blessed weekend.

I was baptized Methodist when I was 3 it terrified me.Walking down the isles and the pipe organ huffing and puffing on the wall.When I got older we moved and switched churches and I was brought up in a Presbyterian church.The people were evil. They would talk in little groups together and the first person that walked away was ripped apart by the remainder of the group.Poor people were shunned because of there clothes ..I thought as a teenager these people have totally missed the point of the message. It was the same when I took my kids back.I guess Yankees are just stuck up or something .
I care for a retarded man that is crippled and has some impulse issues. He is involved with a Baptist church here. They embrace him like family and they have been very positive for him They have a great community and are very active. I have been very impressed with them.
It is 60* now and still very dreary we got more rain over night. Are you a school teacher? That is a calling in itself.
I think we may work on trimming back some of our plants today in preparation for winter if the weather holds

I'm Baptist, my church family seems closer to me that some of my real family. I have added the youth class to my boys class, good kids but some are trying me to see what they can get away with, it is always a learning experience with kids. High school kids always have a lot of drama, that's why if I was starting all over again and know what I know now, I would have been an elementary school teacher.

Cool temps for now, good crisp walk this morning, felt good, 59 degrees but a breeze with it.

Have a blessed day

Chicken and the lake sound wonderful.
It was chilly here this morning damp and we got rain for a few hours. Nice gentle rain no flooding . It just makes you smile to walk in it. I always park far away from the places I have to stop at and walk so I get extra steps..It was so chilly inside Walmart I was cold.I wore shorts not a smart move today .
I always loved psalms when I was a little girl.I am really not that familiar with them anymore..My mom was a church goer Dad was not ,I tried to get back into the church when my kids were young ,I guess I didn't find the right church. I left the day I had my youngest son baptized and never went back.While I loved God I couldn't deal with the people in the church and the only other churches available were Catholic or Jewish and we didn't fit in there either So years later I carry the lord and his message in my heart but avoid churches .It sounds like you have a very nice group .
Hope the wild boys had a great lesson. Be blessed

Comes a time when we can't do what we use to, we wear our bodies out.

59 this morning on my walk, had good walk, supposed to be another hot one today but cooling this evening and for he next 5 days before it turns back hot.
Was going to mow last night, but wife decided we needed to go get chicken and go to the lake, stayed there until dark, so nice.....
Have the youth tonight, lesson on Psalm 118:24, "This is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it".

That Amish farm sounds neat. Thanks for the prayers. I worked on firewood again today before the rain kicked in. It rained for about 15 minutes then it got sunny now it is windy it can't seem to figure out what it is doing.It was nippy and very Fall like this morning 59* It was wonderful stacking wood .I get annoyed because I can only do about 1/2 a cord a day before my back can't take it anymore. There was a time not that long ago it would have been done in a morning . Oh well I guess I get everything done eventually
We went to a movie this afternoon.It wasn't bad A lot of language .Other then that it was good .
Off to get my evening work caught up.I am running late Hope you had a blessed day

Still praying for you all.
I was wore out yesterday when I got home, needed to do some yard work, will try that this afternoon. Had a great walk this morning, still summer time temps but fall coming Thursday or so they say.

Already have plans for next Saturday, taking grandson to another fall festival, looking forward to that. Will probably visit the Amish farm again to.

Praying for you all,

Had a good walk this morning, Sunny and nice, days have been very warm lately, but Thursday comes the cool down.
Saturday, wife and I just did a road trip, went out to the river and just hiked and played, then off to a fall festival, then over to a Amish nursery, so neat there, way out in the country, all sorts of flowers, plants, bee's and butterfly's. They got out their mules and wagon to load flowers taking them somewhere, just a neat simple lifestyle. Then later went and played with Grandson, a very great day.

Invite you over to the Fit Living Christian site on Spark (FLC) and join us there as well in our share with each other, only 2 of us left on that site now, check it out.

Have a blessed day
