Yesterday about 7:45 I went out for a walk around my neighborhood - I have been doing that for a couple of weeks now - It's not just an ole' wives tale.....you really feel better when you get a little exercise!!!!!

Here I am leaving my house - and first thing I have to do is cross the street and I HATE it -there is a big curve just to the left of the street and about the time I get out there some kid comes barreling around...it is not a pretty site....a 50 year ole woman scurrying across the street...no...not at all!!






OK - made it across the street - it's a pretty little neighborhood - older homes - lotz of shade...



Boy, that looks like a really long way........huff....huff......
I found some new settings on my camera - I got the manual out and read it - when all else fails....so I was trying some of them out...this is a really pretty yard - I was going to take some closer ones....the gentleman who owns the house came around the corner and I was in the street taking pictures of his house....I was trying to explain that I thought his yard was pretty and I was taking pictures for my blog.....Uh??? - he points to his ear - so now I am yelling....PRETTY YARD....TAKING PICTURES...BLOG!!!! He wants to talk.........O well, nice man....



Remember, I am trying new settings on my camera - apparently not the right one.....

This setting said something about Sunsets....so I got a little sunset in it.....

very peaceful.......


back home -

Thank you so much for the award. You are the sweetest thing. Like the lady who gave you your award, I quess we are Louisiana kin too, LOL. As for having trouble loading my blog, many are saying that, but I have no clue as to what the problem is. As usual, I'm clueless, lol. I also enjoyed taking the little walk with you through your nice neighborhood..........Kity

I can only imagine what the little voices in your head were saying while you were walking! My "walks" always have bikes, dump trucks, and puppy dogs tagging along :-)

Donna Kay, I hope this comment posts!! I know I did it right before but I think I have the Charlie Brown Syndrome. Nothing ever seems to go right for me. (just kidding) You have a great neighborhood to walk in. If I walked in my neighborhood I would get hit by a semi.

Thank you so much for thinking of me with this award! That's so sweet. And congratulations on receiving it yourself. I love reading your blog...you write as if you were actually having a real life conversation...makes it easy for me to follow along. lol

Enjoyed your walk, too. My husband and I have started walking a bit in the evenings. I should take my camera with me next time so I can show everyone the hill we have to walk up that about halfway up, I'm convinced is really Pike's Peak. lol

Thanks again for the award!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Thank you for the award! I needed a little 'pick me up' today.

You conversation with your neighbor reminded me of a time when I was trying to explain the blog to an older lady I met at a market. Her response to me was..."you own a block on the wide webs?"

Thanks for the smile :-)

Annie said...

I may be a bit confused...is nominating the same as winning? Or will there be an "official notification" of new "Winner"? I need a white haired man with a big card board check at my front door to know I've won!!! hahaha

Terri and Bob said...

Honey, where have I BEEN? Oh yeah, getting ready for school to start. It actually starts Monday so I am glad to be sitting here with a little time on my hands. I really need to shower!

I loved seeing your "walk." Somehow, I have a feeling I am going to be counting it as exercise for today. Shame on me.

Annie said...

Did you retire?
