I thought that instead of making a Tired Tuesday post, I would take a nice walk, take some pictures, and do a Pedestrian, such as I have not done in a while. Unfortunately, it started raining just as I was about to start my walk. It has not stopped yet. There is every chance I will take a walk in the morning, but it will still be dark, making pictures ineligible (I’ve tried). Perhaps I could share a few pictures from previous walks and talk about where I would like to walk to next time.
Here is a picture from August 2020, taken at my beloved Herkimer Historic Four Corners. It is Herkimer Reformed Church. I am fascinated by the graveyard. Old gravestones are always so evocative. Many of my walks and runs do take me by the Historic Four Corners.
Here is my own neighborhood in August 2021, on an evening similar to tonight. This picture, of course, was taken before the storm. If I had gone for my walk earlier, I might have taken such a picture today. However, it is a useless exercise to pine for what might have been.
This picture is from August 2018. I often walk or run on Washington Street and see this former school. I am always so sad to see a building go to waste. Wouldn’t it be nice if somebody bought it and made it into something fun, like an arts center or antique mall? I have neither the wherewithal nor the business expertise for such a project. I don’t even know if the building is in good enough shape for any use, but it is fun to speculate.
I close with a picture from my own backyard in August 2018. The Black-Eyed Susans are still there, although there are some other uninvited plants growing there as well. Perhaps I can get a picture of them tomorrow. I would also like to cut a few to put in a vase in my house.
In the meantime, I am over 300 words and hope my readers have been at least mildly entertained. I hope to go for a real blogging walk soon.
I don’t know if that school building is in good enough for something useful but here is one, in my area, that was! https://nomeschoolhouse.com/about/
Your neighborhood seems really pretty.
Yes, I am very fortunate.
