I only saw two other people out, but I saw lots of wildlife!! I counted at least 19 deer!!! I've never seen that many ever in one day!! I saw two on their own and the others were in three large groups. Along one path I saw three Blue birds in a tree and in a yard I spotted four Robins (I guess some stay around during the winter).
I didn't walk on any route, but just walked all over the place, some places I've never been before. I especially enjoyed my walk today! :-) Here are some pictures of where I walked.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~For dinner we ended up going to eat at Carrabba's, an Italian restaurant which is very good!! It's only two miles from our house and right next to The Outback. One reason I love living where we do is for all the great places there are for going out to eat. Sometimes I feel guilty that we eat out so much. I think I should stay home and cook more often, but then I remember all the meals I've cooked throughout the years when the kids were growing up and think, hey, we deserve to eat out now when we want to. :-)
Early evening yesterday we watched an old movie from 1961 with Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty called Splendor in the Grass. What a depressing movie!! I didn't like it at all! After that depressing movie we just watched some dumb silly stuff on television. We stayed up till midnight to ring in the new year. We usually go to bed around 11:30 anyway so it wasn't much different than a regular night.
On this first day of the new year Ken is off on his own for the day. I am staying at home and going to have a do no work day. I going to read, knit, and maybe bake some cookies. I'll be reading blogs too. :-)
A very Happy 2011 to you all. May the new year find you being happy more than sad, content and not always wanting more, and being thankful more than complaining.
Find your bit of happiness each day.
A smile from me to you.
