Wednesday:) What Wonders I see On My Walks

27 Mar

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”

~Helen Keller

Some people like to walk in the beautiful snowy woods, and others love to stroll along the beach collecting shells. I like to walk around my neighborhood. I find as much beauty and contentment here in my familiar surroundings. Yet, each day is different, and each glorious sunset a different painting.

Now that Spring is in the air, the birds are chirping and nesting.

This morning, I was walking along, picking up random discarded trash along my way. Wednesday is trash day, so I just place the waste in any nearby trash can. I was about a mile into my walk when I saw an unusual wooden dollhouse looking object laying by the curb. I decided that if I drive past later on my way to lunch and it’s still there, I’ll put it in my car and do something fun with it.

Well, it was still there at noon. I rang the bell and a nice lady answered. She said, yes, it was there for the taking. She even came out in her slippers to try and help me get it in my car, it was heavier than heck. It didn’t fit. I said I’d be back later after I ask a friend with a truck for some help. Miss Sandy drove me over there later, and we struggled to lift the darn thing, so I enlisted the aid of a man across the street a few houses down. The 3 of us just barely got it in. Then, I had to call Mr. Mike to help us get it out of the truck. I’ll let you know what I end up doing with it.

Another fun thing I stumbled upon on my walk. Beautiful chalk art on the sidewalk. I love the fact that children create art knowing full-well that time and rain will wash it away. It’s the creating that’s important.

Many wonders on my walks.
