Walkin' and Talkin'

  Cathy was out of town last week, so we had a lot to talk about when we got together today. It must have made us walk fast! It almost felt like spring, but this is Michigan, so don't get too excited. However, the sun was out and it was over 40 degrees! This is some unnamed creek that flows into the Lincoln River. Quite a pretty scene for in town- sure it was residential, not downtown, but still nice. creek

It was growing a healthy crop of watercress. The key feature here is that it is GREEN! With no Philadelphia Flower Show this year, I'm going to be in serious need of green things. watercress

Here's today's mystery item. This board had some things screwed to it. Maybe some sort of electrical relays or circuits? What from a distance I thought was rusted metal is just where the surface of the board has been scored to hold whatever was fastened on it. But it sure made an interesting pattern. pattern

We walked 4.5 miles in less than 1.5 hours. Lovely day. Felt good to be crankin' out some miles.

In other news: I edited/formatted all day until I met Cathy and then had bell choir practice, and then a zoom event this evening. I'm beat!

Oh I like that first one. It was a bit warmer here yesterday. I don't know if it made it to 40 but it was above freezing

The weather here has been glorious as well! 48 degrees today AND sunny! Hooray! Sure is a boost to the spirit, right?!

Ann- that was certainly the most interesting scene- so unexpected.

Lin- yeah... I need some sun and soon some green and color.
