Friday's Fun!

I have not been happy with walking on my treadmill's boring...I have TV...a stand for my book/ipad...but it's just not Lucy thinks any trip outside of the house is to the vet...I grabbed Roxie Blue...put her in the stroller and off we went!

However...we have one problem...our entire neighborhood consists of two blocks that don't order to get to the other block I have to cut through someone's yard...there is the pond and common ground in between...I didn't want any surprise dogs to scare Roxie...or we just walked our street today...which really is sort of a nice hard brisk kind of walk. This is one of the reasons that we will most likely move...I want to be able to walk and bike freely...we are on those narrow country roads with no bike paths...a few months ago a biker was actually killed at the very end of the road that sort of is our exit it's not anything we do.

I took photos of our walk...down the tree lined street we go...Patty and Roxie Blue!

Our neighbor bought two lots...this is their barn...

A lovely pond view...the houses beyond the pond are the other block.

Walking down the street...leaves are everywhere...this is our neighbor's umbrella tree...

This is the farmhouse that belongs to the barn...totally remodeled but the farmhouse style was kept intact.

The end of the road...

Someone put little flags by our mailboxes this summer...

The other end of the road...a farmer is planting something!

That's our issue with moving...we love it here but something is missing...the ability to get out and walk without getting in a car! We are looking at Portland, Maine...Nashville, Tennessee, Asheville, NC...certain parts of Colorado and tons of other places.

It's exciting and scary at the same time...

Who knows where we will end up? We don't!

Reading this...a lovely dystopian book where young women are bought to be surrogates...lots of hidden secrets and evil and who knows what else is lurking behind all of these separate walls!

Oh my!

Happy Friday!


  1. I walk through our neighborhood and even it gets boring at times but at least I can do it all year long.

    1. If we lived closer I would let you borrow Roxie and her stroller! She likes being talked

  2. So nice you got out! I wanted a kitty stroller for Simon. BUT here in the big city - a walk is not boring. You have to dodge buses, landscaping trucks, mopeds, trucks, fire engines. And that's just MY neighborhood LOL. Maybe someday we can stroll kitties together :)

  3. Treadmill's can definitely be boring. I live in town, but we're not a very big town, so it's nice to walk around.

  4. Thanks for the walk; I needed that! It is a very nice area. I could definitely live there!

  5. What a beautiful area you live in! I can understand wanting to move though, if you would like to walk and bike places. It sounds like you have a lot of places to think about (with such different weather). :) Good luck!

  6. I just moved from a beautiful but isolated rural area on top of a hill that was a scary drive down each winter (we actually crashed our new car the first year). I have lived in Maine and been frequently to Portland Maine. It's very pedestrian-friendly: plenty of little shops, clubs, restaurants, small businesses, the coast is there and there is a large park with a path. I haven't been to your other choices though your winters would be milder there. I've read that Portland Oregon and Denver Colorado are very bike/walk friendly cities, and health-conscious, for what it's worth. Enjoy your weekend.

  7. It truly is a beautiful community inspite of its deficits!
