I was hungry for some fresh fruit so I decided to walk to the grocery store early last evening. Well, anyone knows when you go shopping, you can't leave with just the thing you went into the store for. . . so I ended up with two heavy bags, one in each hand and one in my cloth bag on my back like a backpack. I forgot my bus schedule and presumed I had missed the bus that I could have used for a mile or so of my trek. just before I got to the last mile and a half walk home, a bus roared past me! Murphy's law!!!!!!! Oh well, I got home with some wonderful fruit and some good exercise in the 14 plus miles I walked. Was grateful that the uphill part was going and not returning!
BUT the best part of my walk, other than getting some fresh fruit and yummy ice cream to eat was the view I had. . . rainy clouds in sunsets, sky view through weeds and a few Dahlias! We are predicted to have rain for at least 4 more days so I may get a few more photos like them if I venture out but I know for sure that I have a source for more Dahlia photos for the next month. You see, there is a corner lot where a lady has over 300 Dahlias planted, so her fellow tells me. (He asked if I would like a bouquet to take home but I had to decline it since I had no way to carry them . . . but told him next time!)
What do you think? Was the view worth the hike for groceries?
