It was nice to hear some geese on the lake again. I kind of missed them and their noisy wake up time.
The deer seem to be back today too. I saw a mom and her two young ones and also three more along my walk. Saw a fair amount of rabbits too.
An average amount of people around the lake walking, running and biking too. I passed by one man walking with a bike and said my usual good morning, walked on a bit and then realized he was a man I used to see all the time around the lake walking with a cane. I saw him on the other side and stopped and talked to him. I told him I didn't recognize him with a bike. : ) He told me it is easier for him to walk and he is able to walk faster holding on to the bike. His leg was crushed in an accident at work and he has LOTS of pins holding things together and has lost most of the nerves in his leg. He has been getting to the lake much earlier than he used to walk and that's why I haven't seen him. He told me he goes over to the shopping center when he's done with his exercise and sees me every morning cutting through the parking lot. He has finished his walk as I'm just starting mine.
Now this man is an inspiration. He walks 3 miles or so every day!
Today I walked 6.4 miles.
I found a lucky penny.
********************I usually go to the commissary on Wednesday but didn't make it there yesterday so with list in hand I went to do my shopping today. It must be true about Wednesdays being the best shopping day because today it was pretty crowed and I had quite a long line to wait on getting checked out. I stood there with my Stiiv (pedometer) in hand and collected all the coins from my island while I waited.
When I go shopping I like to put things in my cart nice and neatly. I like things in there just so. So many people just throw things in their cart every which way. I've even had someone tell me how neat my cart was! : ) I guess it is a bit of a compulsion with me but at least I don't care if other peoples carts are a mess. I don't have the urge to 'fix' their cart. : )
How about you? What does your shopping cart look like. A mess? Or neat and tidy?
I cooked Kenny and I a nice supper at home today.
Vegetable PastaI cooked a finely chopped onion and a few cloves of garlic in some olive oil.
Added a cut up zucchini, red bell pepper, broccoli, and a can of tomatoes in it's juice.
Covered it and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
Cut up some fresh mozzarella in cubes and about 1/2 cup of fresh basil (from my windowsill) and mixed it in.
Made a box of Penne pasta and then mixed everything together.
It's an easy and good meal. I was going to take a picture but forgot about it once it was done.
After supper we went to Lowe's and bought some building supplies to take up to the country tomorrow. Stopped at the old house and loaded some more stuff from there to bring up too. Some old milk cans, advertising boxes, and some other things that we want to keep.
Then back home for the usual evening - a little television watching and some ice cream. : )
We are watching The Grand on Netflix and are on the second season. It's set in England in the 1920's and The Grand is a hotel. It's kind of like Downton Abbey and Upstairs Downstairs, only in a hotel. It is really good.
Hope you had a good day and you smiled often.
