Take A Walk (or two) With Us

A Good Stretch of the Legs

The weather was so mild a few days last week, Lucan and I got out and about quite a bit.  I've compiled two of our walks from last week, so you can step away from your desk, if only in your mind. I'm hoping to get out for a little 'stretch of the legs' later with the hounddog.

One day we went, it seemed to be all about the clouds. The other day we found lots of patterns and evidence of animals (not that this is unusual, but it included a biggo clump of fur).

Come along, won't you?

Happy Valentine's Day

I hope you enjoy your Valentine's Day. Some people think it's a holiday made up by the card companies and they may be right. I think a holiday in the name of love is refreshing. Nobody is forcing you to buy a card from one of the big companies, or even flowers for that matter. There are so many ways to say I love you. What's your favorite way?

Mine is cooking a nice meal for my husband and this year will be no different. I'm about to put a Bolognese sauce in the oven to cook on low all afternoon. I also have a lovely book I got him over a month ago, with the most wonderful sketches of NYC. I showed it to him in the store, but he thought I put it back. So, it's a 'semi-surprise' in that he's had a brief look at it, but doesn't know he's getting it. 

Spread the love!

Ciao for now,

PS- If you need a last minute gift, don't forget Bates Mercantile Co. has printables!!! I send you the file and you print off on your end. Voila, check that off your list!


  1. Looks like you live in a peaceful place. Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Gorgeous! Happy Valentine's Day:)

  3. Your home is so beautiful. I would love walking around every day. I miss having a house. We moved from a beautiful house and neighborhood in VA to a temporary apartment. It's a stunning place, but no nature. There are trails. I hate following set paths. I can't wait to have a house and terrorize the woods cutting my own trails.


You comments make my day. Thanks for taking the time to visit Mercantile Muse and for commenting. I really appreciate it. ~Pam
