Every year our youth group does a ditch pick.  For 12 miles.  It is done partly as a fundraiser and partly as a community service.  We do the same stretch of road every year.  They split into groups, this year it was only 4 groups since it turned out to be a track and field weekend for some of the kids, each take a half mile at a time, and walk up one side and down the other, so really for every half mile we walk a mile.  Since there were fewer groups this year I am sure we all did about 5 or 6 half mile sections, which means we actually walked 5-6 miles instead of 2.5 to 3 miles.  So now I have a sunburned and windburned face, since it is always really windy whenever we do this, and I am pretty sure I am getting a blister on my foot from walking on the slanted ditch all day.  But it was a good day.

I did notice as we walked, that the grass sure got green really fast this year.  And it is quite tall already.  When I got home, I noticed that, first of all, my lawn really needs mowing, and second, that my lilac bushes are starting to grow leaves.   This makes me quite excited because I love lilacs.


About Kathy

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.
