I walked an old route with a few diversions here and there. I walked up to the school and then around the neighborhood beyond there. On the way back I walked along the trail behind the school.
I didn't see many people out walking but saw a few kids riding bikes to school. It was a pretty quiet but enjoyable walk.
Walking over by the Giant I found a lucky penny. : )
Coming up to my house I realized that the Fall wreath was still on the door so before I went inside I took that one down, got the Christmas one out of the garage and hung that one on the front door. That finished off the decorations.
I walked 6.5 miles.
********************First thing this morning I baked a batch of Chocolate Chippers. This evening I'm going to a cookie exchange with the ladies from church. Last year no one brought chocolate chip cookies so I thought I'd bring them this year.
We also have to bring a $5 wrapped gift for the gift exchange. I've wrapped two dish clothes and four coasters that I've knitted.
It was so nice out that I hung my clothes outside to dry today. As most of you know I don't use a clothes dryer and during those days when it's just too cold to hang them outside I put the clothes on a wooden clothes rack which I put over the heating vent.
The next thing I'd like to get done is writing out Christmas cards. I've gotten the cards and made out the list. Now I just have to get them written. My list is a lot smaller than it used to be. In years past that list got longer and longer and I didn't enjoy writing them anymore - it had just become a chore to get through. I was sending and getting cards from people with only a name signed and no news about them at all. People I really didn't know anything about any more.
I didn't send any out the last couple of years and its come to where I miss it. So I am starting in again on sending Christmas cards - only this time the list will stay reasonable and be something I enjoy doing.
Hope your day is sunny and bright. That is certainly true where I am. It is now 68 degrees out!!!
