I walked around the lake again. I saw a rabbit which I haven't seen in quite a while. The heron was there at the edge of the water and the many geese were seen on the water and on the grass. There are so many of them there now, you have to watch where you step on the path or you might step in something green! I spotted three deer this morning too.
I walked 6.7 miles.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last night we watched It's a Wonderful Life. No matter how many times I watch that movie it always makes me cry. Sad tears and happy tears. It is my favorite Christmas movie. Next we will be watching A Christmas Story - another one I have to watch every year.
I don't eat breakfast until I get back from my walk and since I got back late I decided to skip breakfast and just eat an early lunch but eat a breakfast meal. After reading that line over I could have said I ate a late breakfast and skipped lunch. Anyway I made pancakes and even put a little dab of whipped cream on them. I usually just eat one pancake but since it was a combination breakfast/lunch I ate two. I guess that would be called brunch!! Whatever you want to call the meal, it was delicious!! :-)
I wrapped the last two presents and put them under the tree. We are NOT allowed to touch them.
I baked another batch of chocolate chip cookies. I mixed mint chocolate chips with the usual chocolate chips. I made them for a party we will be going to on Saturday so I put them in the freezer.
Read another book in the cat series, The Cat Who Sang for the Birds by Braun which now puts my total for the year at 48. I'll be able to read more by the end of the year but that will still leave me far short of the 75 goal. Yesterday we stopped at the library. I have been going on Tuesdays after my knitting group and Ken hasn't been for a while so I stopped in with him. So do you think I made it in and out without getting a book? If you said no, you are right. Two more for me!! I think that means I'll be reading later. :-)
Tonight for supper I'm making Pepper and Onion Burritos. Click HERE is you care to see the recipe.
Right now I'm off to do my exercise DVD.
A happy day to you.
A smile from me to you.
I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day.
We try to crowd into it the long arrears
of kindliness and humanity of the whole year.
As for me,
I like to take my Christmas a little at a time,
all through the year.
And thus I drift along into the holidays.
