So it was especially nice getting outside this morning and walking again. It was 30 degrees and a wintry mix was expected to start by sunrise. I walked around the lake. Some of the footbridges on the way there had some icy spots like in the picture below but all the pathways were perfectly fine.
Very few people out, and all that I saw were people I knew or have seen before.
I followed a couple of short trails down to the water a few times and took a couple of pictures but didn't like how any of them turned out. It was too dark out yet. Sunrise came and went and it didn't make much of a difference in the sky. About a mile from home a bit of frozen snow started falling mixed with frozen rain and by the time I was getting home the streets were getting a bit slick and my feet were making crunching sounds as I walked along. I was back home in the nick of time.
My walk steps today were 13,540.
********************The weather turned to snow for a while and then back to freezing rain and sleet and now it is just a mess out there.
I usually go to the commissary on Wednesday's but decided to stay home on this wintry weather mix day so I'll probably go tomorrow instead. I still have to make a list and plan some meals.
I have done a few chores but what has had my attention for a good part of the day is a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. Santa left a couple of puzzles under the tree and one of them is laid out on the table and every time I pass it I end up staying there longer than I planned finding more pieces. : )
I know I should do something constructive but I know I'll be back to that puzzle again in just a few minutes.
Hope your enjoying your day.
Happyone : )
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning
but a going on,
will all the wisdom
that experience can instill in us.

Vee - I got my Nativity in the mid 80's at an Interior Home Party. I had always wanted a set and I really liked this one.
