iPlod

Plod:
1 : to work laboriously and monotonously
2 a : to walk heavily or slowly
b : to proceed slowly or tediously

Went out early for my walk today and spotted a comrade.

Just like me this guy is plodding along, not making great time, but putting one foot in front of the other and doing the best he can.

I don't usually take my camera with me, but walking is walking, so I just walked back home and retrieved it. Yes, I am that desperate for blog fodder.

It's been a bit of a rocky path around the cul-de-sac lately, but things seem to be getting sorted out.

While walking I listened to a Never Not Knitting podcast and enjoyed the guest essay by Nic Knits detailing her experience in knitting a lovely little Christening Sunday brunch coat for a friend's adopted daughter. So many things can make a knit challenging. It's great to hear when things eventually work out well. If interested, you can read the essay at the Nic Knits link above, or see the finished coat here.


A bright spot along the walk - some hardy Black-Eyed Susans.

I admire you and the turtle for walking in this heat.

You and the turtle and the Black-Eyed Susans and the knitting news....at least you're blogging, and what a fun post. No really. You've given me a novel idea....walking. Hmmm..... can you knit while walking?
Stay cool.

Alex and her best friend have a rule. You can not pass a turtle while walking or driving, that is in the road, without stopping to move it to the side. Great idea if it's not a snapping turtle, or interstate 95. :o)
