It's Six Word Saturday again and I thought I would tell you about my pleasant Friday afternoon...and post some pictures of my ride around town.
A Pleasant Friday Afternoon In Derby!
(Lots of small pictures...you can click on them to enlarge!)
One of my favorite things to do is hang out at the Library, so I returned some books and checked out some more, and also a DVD and some CD's.
I went to Sonic and got a large Lemonade, popped the CD's in the player and went for a ride around town.
I was enjoying the neighborhood lakes and the flowering trees.
I saw some Garage Sale signs and decided to stop. I found a Pier One Tuscan looking yellow pitcher for a couple of dollars. It was marked 20.00 originally. And I bought some magazines for 25 cents.
The sky was such a pretty blue color and the clouds were white and fluffy! The Christian CD's were making my heart sing out to God as I was enjoying nature on my drive.
I decided to go to High Park and sit and enjoy the lovely weather and read those magazines, watch the ducks...and the people who were out and about.
Then I continued driving around our old neighborhoods where there are lots of mature trees...and I was sad to see that the people who lived in our house from 30 years ago had cut down the huge Sweet Gum trees that we loved so much.
Can you see them lying there in the front yard all chopped up? That made me sad. People used to walk by and admired them in the Fall and always asked me what kind of trees they were because they were so pretty.
Then I drove by our second house were we lived for almost twenty years. It was on a corner lot with lots of trees. It was a two story house with nearly 4000 sq. feet, including the basement. But after 20 years of climbing the stairs and keeping that clean and doing all of the yard up keep, we decided to build a smaller house with a smaller yard.
So we picked out a lot by the golf course and built this house 4 years ago.
I enjoy the creeping phlox. I love my rock that says..."Jesus Is My Rock!"
We still need to do some more outside and hope to do some more trees and landscaping this Spring, or Fall. But we are Happy in our Home Sweet Home.
We love our town of Derby. And I like the retired life. I especially like to enjoy these special days when I can just appreciate life and count my many blessings!
