Have you seen . .

. . . my new hat?  It's a thrift store find covered with crochet "scrumbles".

 I wish I could get a hat as cool as Deb's to play with.

But I love it - i think I'll take it for a walk tomorrow.

10,000 Time a Day

Do it 10,000 times a day.

That's my new goal.  Before you jump to conclusions, I'm talking about walking, specifically 10,000 steps a day. (Click on link above). I've only hit that mark once, but I am walking more.  My first day with my new pedometer, I discovered I was almost stationary - only about 1500 steps.  

Fortunately I live in a place that is easy to take interesting walks.

The shuttle, Atlantis, on it's final  launch

A very green lizard.

Interesting wildflowers - these were in yards in my neighborhood.  Some may call them weeds, but isn't a weed just a plant growing where we don't want it to grow?

And this hawk was on a neighborhood roof - I thought it was a stuffed one at first, but he turned his head slowly and intently watched as I walked by.

It's been a few weeks!  So I'll try to catch up on a few of my more recent "meanderings".

My new herb "garden".  

And a friendly porch lizard.
Those of you that know me, know a don't have a green thumb.  Unless I've been using green paint.  But, with Deb's encouragement and the watchful eye of a lizard, I planted some herbs.  So far, so good!
