When I first left I thought I'd only be walking 3 miles or so because it was so cold, but once I walked a mile, I warmed right up. The sun came out and felt so good on my face.
I had another random walk around town. I figured the farm loop road would have been really cold out in the open with the wind.
I didn't see anyone else out today. Just people bundled up walking from their house to their car. They must have thought I was crazy out walking for fun. : )
I walked 6.1 miles - 11,759 steps.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤Ken and I went out this morning. Since my car doesn't do snow and ice, Ken dropped me off at the nursing home so I could visit with Harry and he did a little shopping. I went to Brenda's office and gave her the bag of Christmas gifts for Harry. Harry is doing fine. He has such a great attitude.
Today he said to me, "I hope you continue to visit me after Christmas." : )
Ken and I had a bite out for lunch in a little place in Oakland and then went to Walmart and did a little shopping - mostly food.
I started putting ornaments on the Christmas tree but can't seem to find a whole big box of them. They have gotten missed placed with the move. The only ornaments I can find are the glass ones. All the homemade ones and the special ones I've had for years are the ones that are missing.
I finished my book club book last night, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline and I liked this book a LOT. I'm glad it's my book because I liked it so much that I would enjoy reading it again. Parts of it were sad, but I smiled too and I liked the ending.
You can read about it HERE.
After supper I walked to the library for the book club. The name of the book club is the ABC. There were eight of us there and everyone liked Orphan Train. We chose the next three months books.
I looked on the shelf to see if there were any more books there by Christina Baker Kline but no luck. I did come home with three other books though.
I'm having something different for my snack tonight - a twinkie. I picked up a box of them while at Walmart today. I haven't had a Twinkie in years but just had a hankering for one. I hope I like it as much as I think I will. : )
Well, that's been my day. It's been a good one.
Hope your day has been happy and bright.

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away;
While quite unselfish, it grows small.

Kim - Yes, I think you're right. I love living in a small town and snow just seems part of that somehow. I used to live between Washington DC and Baltimore so yes, this is out in the country.
Yes, Ken will be writing on a red ball again. One day he will just take the ball and write something on it and I'm always surprised. I'll be sure to post a picture of it when he does.
Nellie - No, I don't have snow pants but that may be a good idea. Right now I wear two pair of leggings and sweat pants. If it is really cold I'll also wear tights.
