I hope this dawn finds you well. It is a bit on the foggy side here. It was that way yesterday too.
There is something I find soothing about fog, so I really don't mind a day like that. However, our entire weekend was wet and damp and chilly. Not the best. I am hoping for a bit of sun and a little more warmth today.
Friday, however, turned into a gorgeous day. I decided to walk along the River Trail in Valley Forge Park. But...the parking area was barracaded. I know parks are closed, but I thought trails were being kept open for folks to get out. I guess it's different with Federal parks. So, I headed back to the canal walk which I love. First I spotted a lot of individuals NOT practicing social distancing:
These guys are just about piled up on each other! And then these two:
But I was rewarded with spotting the blue heron who was practicing social distancing:
What a gorgeous bird! I actually watched him fly down low over the canal and then land in this area. He was walking around cautiously/slowly/gracefully looking for a meal.
Later that afternoon I practiced some archery.
Do you see how close to a bullseye I got? What you don't see are the arrows that completely missed the target - either landing too short or too far. LOL.
We decided to skip going to the grocery store until sometime this week. Turns out we had enough to keep us going (ha!). There were a bunch of overly ripe bananas in the jumble of fruit on the buffet, so Saturday morning I made some banana blueberry bread. Yum!
Sunday I noticed that this guy was back:
This is Steve the Beav...or most likely great-great-great grandson of Steve the Beav. Yup, our resident groundhog who got his name when Colin was a toddler and thought he was a beaver - lol. His tail does look rather beaverish though.....
Thanks to Jane Sunday afternoon found me baking some delicious cookies.
I don't need these hanging around the house. I've packaged up some for Fletch to take to his clients and some he will drop off at Colin & Mailing's. He is going out today to the one couple he still occasionally does a little work for. They are elderly (she is 80 and he is 87) and he just wants to check up on them. Fletch also dug up a young burning bush from our yard to drop at Colin's for him to transplant.
A sure sign of Spring - we noticed the wisteria buds are beginning to swell.
There are a lot, so it should be a pretty show this year.
Finally, there was some knitting. Mailing's shortie socks are finished!
They sure are a quick knit! That means today I get to dig through the stash and find something new to cast on...and, of course, I should spend some time on the Canary Blanket. First though comes work.
Time to pour another cup of coffee and get down to business. I hope this Monday turns out to be a wonderful one for all of us. Take care!
