I posted on Saturday about last things. I knew, almost without a doubt, this would be the last walk I took as a resident of Maydelle. In the back of my mind, I tried to think I could squeeze in another one, but it wasn’t to be.
So. Here it is.
My last walk as a Maydellian.
It started off as many others. With me letting the chickens into the courtyard and Stripe-Stripes husband escaping. There is no getting him back in either!
Sweet Potato Vines, I have discovered, are my BFF in the plant world. Here they are by my mailbox. I adore them.
It was fairly early when I walked and dew still covered everything. Even weeds look good in the morning light, covered in dew.
You know, nothing stays the same. I’ve been walking down this road almost 9 years, and the 140 acres sold last year and the fences are being rebuilt and trees are being cut, and everything just……changes.
It’s not bad. I’m just, a bit slow.
I thought, however, since this was probably my last walk I should take the long route. So I hung a left after crossing the old wooden bridge and suddenly slowed up.
And for once (my husband would be VERY proud), used my brain.
I thought, self. Self, you shouldn’t walk thru this forest path because…..

So, I used my super awesome adult brain and turned around to get back on the road and nearly stepped on this…..
And before I realized it was a frog, I almost peed on myself.
I’m not as tough as I’d like to be….
The rest of the walk went quickly,
Flowers on Highway 84…..
Only to be greeted by Frogger’s tiny cousin, massive piles of red dirt and more flowers.
Thanks for joining me today!
Soon, new adventures!
