A New Year Walk...

In honor of this fresh new year...I'm going to do something kind of wild and crazy.

I'm posting pictures from my walk today...completely unedited.

And off we go...

This is my mountain

I guess some feathered friends were in the mood for a walk today too.

The tree on the corner...

oreo snow

This sweet fella ran out to greet me as I walked past the park...and then stayed by my side as we passed some snarling Huskies who were chained up in a neighbor's yard.

I thanked him and told him he should run on home...but he put his foot down and insisted on staying.  He watched over me until I had safely turned the corner.

A nice place to walk.

A nice place to stay.

My bungalow used to live here...

...and this is where my retired barn cat, Bud, went to stay when he ran away from home.  Isn't this a cute little yellow garage?  I've always liked it.  Buddy came back, in fact, he's all curled up in his chair now.  The neighbors still ask about him...because he's such a doll baby.

I hadn't anticipated going for a walk today...so that felt pretty good.  Walking more often is definitely high on my priority list for the new year.  So, do you know what's next on my list?

Do you?

Yeah, I'd like to get the neighbors' Dollar Store bag out of my Hawthorne tree!

I hope your first day of the New Year was lovely.  What did you do?

It's so pretty there! I love how well you described your walk. I feel like I was there with you. & I've always thought the snow looked like Oreos or Cookie Dough too. HAHA! Happy New Year Julie!
Such a fun walk!! Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me!! Hope your search for new jeans ends well! LOL

What beautiful scenery you have on your walks. We live on a lake with a mountain ridge view....but after seeing yours, ours is more of a hill - even though it is the beginning of the Appalachian Trail!
How pretty! We have no snow where I live, beautiful pictures! I don't even know how I just "stumbled" on your blog. I really love it! So cute and creatively mysterious title! (: Defiantly adding to my follow list! If you want to check out my blog, here is the link! http://theperfectionistsportfolio.blogspot.com/
Happy New Year! :D

Do you happen to live in the snow-filled version of Heaven??

Oreo snow...now I want ice cream and it's not even 10 a.m.

Oh, and our beloved outdoor cat Buddy seems to have run away... He hasn't been spotted in 5 days. And he never really used to go much of anywhere! Ugh. I'm not even an animal lover...but this still makes me a little sad!
