45 degrees!

So I have not been walking since we landed back in Iowa. And I have really missed it. Cold weather, rain, and wind have been a few of my excuses. So today I said to Butch let's pretend like it is winter, dress for it and actually go for a walk. One of the things I have always admired about my guy is that he is usually willing to go along with my crazy ideas. Crazy, huh? So we bundled up and ended up walking to the other side of town and visiting with our friends Jerilynn and Pete and returning home with a stop at Hy-Vee on the way home. Total was close to 2 miles.
Tomorrow we will be checking out an auction and Karla will be coming over for it too. Should be fun as it has been quite a while since we were at an auction.

Rainy, Cool Indoor Day

Butch and I have been busy getting things done outside. I know most of you can relate to that. It is the only argument I can give for staying in one place all the time...but even then you must wait for the right weather for whatever you choose to do. Being south works better for that than north...but that isn't going to happen for us. I have long had a theory about why things seem neater in the north, like yards and farm houses etc and that is, in the north you are always working with deadlines like getting it done before cold weather sets in or getting itchy fingers to get out and dig in the dirt come Spring. And in the south it is always, " I'll get to that tomorrow, Ma." which is a line from Ma and Pa Kettle that gets used around here quite often regardless if we're north or south. Said with a smile, of course.
So today has been laundry day, computering day, nap day, stay inside day and all things good day.
