I headed on over to the lake again but this time when I walked around it I went in the opposite direction that I usually walk. A while back when they did some repair work on the paths and they were closed, there was a detour trail through the woods that we could take. I went up past the tennis courts and behind the baseball field to walk on that trail, but it was all overgrown up that way and I couldn't find the right trail. Started down a couple places that I thought was the trail but they were deer trails and not the one I was looking for. So I had to back track and walk back down to the path. I ended up walking up this trail here that leads to the north entrance to the park and walked the road back home.
Didn't see many people but then I didn't stay down by the water.
I wasn't going to take any more pictures of fall leaves because I've taken quite a few already but this was just too pretty to pass up. It is two blocks from home.
********************My pantry was getting kind of low so it was once again time to go the commissary. Security was tighter than usual at the base so there was a line to get through the gate. Don't know why. I finally got on and to the commissary and got my shopping done. No lines to wait on and I got all that was on my list. I stick to my list pretty good. How about you? Do you make a list and stick to it?
I went the back way to the base and it was 13.5 miles. Coming home I went the highway and it was 16.6 miles.
Got all the stuff put away and then got a batch of chili going in the crock pot. It won't be for supper though because it takes 8 hours to cook and I didn't get it started until a little after 1:00. Chili is one of those meals that tastes better the day after. I'm going to take some of it with us this weekend when we go up to Happy Trails. It should taste good after a hard days work.
I also got some bread started in the bread machine.
I still have to clean up the kitchen, take the clothes off the line and fold them.
Then there is supper for tonight to think of. Don't know what I'm in the mood for. If it was up to me I'd just skip supper tonight, but somehow I don't think Ken would like that idea. : )
Hope your day is sunny and bright.
Around and around the house the leaves fall thick,
but never fast,
for they come circling down
with a dead lightness
that is somber and slow.
~ Charles Dickens
