A little more than a mile into the walk was the smell of Christmas. The path was lined with pine trees.Then there was the smell of burning wood. I love that smell. I love the smell of burning leaves too, but we can'd do that anymore.
About 3 miles into my walk, there was the smell of manure. Probably made by this guy.There was a farmer harvesting the last of his crops.
His field was lined by these "dusters".
There were lots of trees that still had their leaves.
This guy was getting his bird feeders read for winter. He reminded me of my dad. My dad always fed the birds and would definitely be outside "putsing" around in the yard on a day like today. God I miss him.I came upon these abandoned train tracks.
I guess I could have stopped for lunch, but this combination laundrymat/restaurant my my only choice. I passed.
It looks like nature is getting ready for Christmas too. These trees are planted next to each other and the berries seem to be reaching for the pine trees.
It's been 8 miles and I can't believe the things I've seen and smelled. Seriously, this day is a GIFT. Honestly, I am just amazed.
I had a half mile to go and I look down and saw this.
So what I didn't tell you is that I didn't sleep much last night. So about 5:00am I said a prayer and asked God for "peace". I'd say my prayer was answered and then some.
