Thursdays are garbage pick up days. Those are the mornings that I get some exercise. From my back porch down to the end of my driveway is about a quarter of a mile. So I get an extra workout carrying two heavy garbage cans down to the road and easier walking only exercise on the way back. It was cold this morning so I dressed up as if I were headed for Alaska. It was in the upper 30's for awhile but the hot sun is warming it up very fast. It is going to be a beautiful day here at "swamp crest", which is another name for a little bit of heaven (grin). Hey, I like it here, OK? Of course it was a lot better when I first moved here. Now there are a lot of people who think this area is a great place to live. Thank goodness I got 12 acres to hide on with only 60 foot of road frontage. Makes for a more private piece of property than one which has roads running along its border.
Anyway, I had my wife take some pictures this morning for my blog and will probably use them in tomorrow's blog. Now tomorrow is a long way off, and I don't like to plan too far ahead. . . .
The first thing I did today was read all the blogs that I follow and comment on some of them. I feel that the bloggers I follow are like an extended family and it is great to hear what they are up to and thinking about. Of course, when they don't blog I start to get worried. Ben of http://benntexas.blogspot.com/ and the Old Fool at the blog by the same name stopped blogging and never returned. They both passed away with very little warning. They were there one day and gone the next. That happens to the best of us sooner or later. But today the sun is shining and everything is right in my world. You all have a great day today and enjoy every minute of it, you hear? Life is too short not to.
