Friday Creature

Whew! I'm glad this week is coming to a close. We had some very strong storms roll through Chattanooga on Wednesday, unleashing wind, hail, rain and multiple tornadoes all over the region. A lot of people are still without power, the death toll continues to climb, and there is so much cleaning up to do. I'm feeling very lucky at the moment, as our house was not damaged, our power was only out for a little while, and no one here at Chez 10K was hurt.

And now that the weekend is almost here, Nonnie and I will start looking forward to our Sunday walk, which has become a regular weekly event since the warmer weather returned. Instead of going to church in the morning, we choose to glory in creation by doing some urban hiking. It takes an hour or two, depending on our destination, and we usually cover at least three miles (one week we had a bit of a directional problem and ended up walking over seven miles!). This photo is from a few weeks ago, snapped when we stopped in a shady spot for a quick drink of water.

Have a great weekend, everyone! More creatures can be found on the modulator's ark! Be safe, happy and well!

I wouldn't mind swapping places with Nonnie. She looks totally happy. Well, I do, too, but dogs… Well, here. Heh. :-)

Haha! I love the link!! Nonnie's almost 12 years old, but she never tires on a walk -- I think her happiest days are the ones when she's constantly on the move, and I've yet to find her limit.

It all sounds good!
