Hi all! Don’t have much time to post, but I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the wise, wonderful, kind comments you left on my previous post. My original thought in posting was that it might be helpful to someone. But I was the one who received help.
So today was as bright and sunny a day as yesterday was “foggy.” I mentioned to Jill in an email that I might try for the 5 1/2 mile walk. Miz was the one who pushed me out the door. All last week I kept walking, but I felt terrible, like decrepit. Don’t know if that was all the time I spent in the car, or the long periods I spent sitting and hooking my rug. Or maybe just getting used to the hill walking again. Whatever it was, I was a little disconcerted by it. So to take my old long walk and feel strong and sure of myself was really a great thing. Granted, I was pretty achy by the end of the walk.
Grabbed my camera and kept my eyes peeled for anything that might be worth shooting. It seemed to be a wildflower kind of day. These flowers have a long snaky stem. Kinda cool looking.
These tiny purple flowers were everywhere. Had a very intense color in spite of their small size.
This one had an unusual lemon-lime coloring.
Found these beauties on the way home. I think they’re wild sweet peas.
The park was really beautiful this morning. There was a bench in the middle of these yellow daisies. We walked out there and sat for just a minute before starting home.
Noah was a trooper. Unlike me, he napped for several hours after we got home.

And last but not least, Shelley encouraged me to post a picture of my new Montrail Molokinis with my new orchid nail polish to match These flip flops are extremely comfortable, and they are sturdy enough that I have worn them on our evening stroll a couple of times. On my gravely dirt road, that is quite a recommendation.
