My Scenic Morning Walk



This morning upon wakening I had to tell myself to put one foot in front of the other. I was in no mood to walk.   Last year I walked two miles daily from July to the middle of November.  My last two mile walk was around the Hampton Inn when Clint and I went to Branson back in November.  This morning was the difficult first step of the journey ... my daily walking routine.  Clint inspired me when I got up this morning, he had already completed his predawn walk and took his camera along and made some photos for his blog today.

My two mile journey today in photographs:




Looking back at our quiet street, we are blessed
to be able to live in such a wonderful neighborhood.
 












 





This a small Texas ant hill, I have a feeling
the green leaf in the center is "dinner".






Nearby busy intersection yet it is very
quiet in our neighborhood.



Forelorn looking little scarecrow
awaiting spring!










Our local library ... Plano's libraries are first class!
 





The under appreciated dandelion adds
a beautiful spot of yellow!
 

 





Piled up newspapers ... I always wonder if there is not
a neighbor they feel comfortable asking to save
their newspapers?


Signs, signs, everywhere are signs,
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind ... as the old song goes.

Looks like a great walk! You got shots of lots of things I seldom even notice. I see the ants are having a salad for din-din. Ha.

No rod sightings on your walk, Cindy? (LOL) Thanks for a great set of pictures from around your locality. I hope Milo the cat will soon be found!

I enjoyed looking at your pics for a moment i felt as if i'm actually there walking the same path and seeing the same things you see. The yellow flower is such a cheery sight but is often overlooked:-)

Thanks to Clint, Shady and Minakichu for taking the time to visit my blog and comment:

Clint, the leaf was dinner...those are vegan ants.

Shady Del, I had no more rod sightings on my walk but Clint had what looked like honest-to-goodness orbs in one of his photos from his walk. Strange happenings with the Ellison :-D

Minakichu, thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and your thoughtful comment. I sure enjoyed reading your blog this morning, later I did indeed get out my red lipstick!
