I finished book number two yesterday, This Year it Will be Different, A Christmas Treasury, by Maeve Binchy. It is a collection of short stories about Christmas which I thought was very good.
It was ice cream day last night and again I had some chocolate chip. Ken always dishes out the ice cream. We have special ice cream dishes that are used only for ice cream. Just makes it a bit more special!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We had a light dusting of snow over night so this morning I made footprints when I walked. It was 24 degrees and during my walk a few times there were very light snow showers. Hardly anyone around the lake and it was beautiful and peaceful. On the way home, walking along the path I spotted a fox down by the water. He didn't see me at first and he ended up walking along the water for a while as I walked very slowly along the path watching him. It was nice to be able to see him for a while, because they usually are very skittish and I just get a quick look at them. This one looked nice and healthy! I was able to get this picture. :-)
This morning I was in the mood for some Cream of Wheat for breakfast. I haven't had it for quite a while and it was delicious with a little bit of maple syrup swirled on top. I make it with skim milk instead of water. When Ken eats it, he likes it made with water and adds salt and butter.
Got a few loads of laundry done. Didn't even try to hang them up outside. Most of the clothes I put in the dryer, some I hung up to dry inside.
I took all the pictures and nails out of the walls in the kitchen in preparation for painting tomorrow. I'm so happy to finally be painting the kitchen. Tonight after supper we are going to go out and buy the paint. It is a blue/gray color called Watertower. I will post pictures.
Till next time.....
I hope today, someone made you smile.
A smile from me to you.
You've got a lot of choices.
If getting out of bed in the morning
is a chore and you're not
smiling on a regular basis,
try another choice.
