A little chipmunk scurried across in front of me and stopped at the edge of the path, but I wasn't quick enough to get a picture. The Canadian geese were as noisy as ever as they woke up today and I saw the usual bunnies and deer along the way.
I know I say this a lot but my morning walk is such a great way to start the day. :-)
I didn't quite finish my book last night but I did finish it this morning.
I read South of Broad by Pat Conroy.Now I know everyone I've talked to has really liked this book, but though I liked it at times, other times I didn't. For me part of a good book is when I feel like I know the characters and like them. In this book I didn't really LIKE any of the people and the writing didn't make me FEEL for any of them. I wasn't crazy about the humor in the book either. So for me, not such a great book.
It's set in Charleston, South Carolina. Leo narrates the story about a group of kids that are vastly different and become friends in their senior year of high school. This is about their lives and their friendship.
This nice sunny day with a breeze was a perfect one for doing the laundry and I had three loads backed up just waiting for a day like today. I used up all three of my lines out on the deck.
Today Kenny and I went to the Cheesecake Factory. We just shared an appetizer so we would have room for dessert. We had to have dessert today because after all it is Kenny's birthday! Kenny had a piece of banana cream cheese cake and I had Linda's fudge cake and even though we saved room, we still couldn't finish and had to bring some home.
I have seen a million or so commercials for the new television show V in the last few weeks and tonight finally arrived so I could watch it. Kenny stayed around and watched it with me while we finished the rest of our Cheese Cake Factory dessert. V was pretty good with a couple of surprises in it.
I'm off to read for a while.
I had a nice sunny day and hope you did too.
I'm not sure I want popular opinion on my side --
I've noticed those with the most opinions often have the fewest facts.
