I walked one of my connect the path routes and it was so nice and peaceful.
I heard some birds calling out to each other. It was dark and the first few deer, I heard first and then just saw their white tails bobbing about in the woods. Later when it was light out I saw the red fox running up the path.
I had to stop and take a layer of clothing off because I got very warm. Have to remember not to wear that extra sweatshirt when it is up in the 30's especially if it isn't windy.
Steps for my walk today were 12,077.
********************It started snowing about 9:30 this morning but so far nothing has stuck and everything is just wet.
We went out in the morning to do a few chores and was home by lunchtime.
Ken painted the 2012 red ball Christmas ball today. I took what seemed like a million pictures and even though it is a bit blurry it is the best of the bunch. It was hard to not get the flash in the picture. I tried not using the flash but those pictures came out even worse. Anyway this is the ball, The End is Near.
So January 31 is his last day of work!! : ) He is pleased and has a huge long list of things he'd like to do!! I am happy that he is retiring. He has worked long and hard all his life and he deserves to have a happy retirement. I am so very proud of him for his excellence at work - always willing to go the extra bit, helping others and not caring who gets the credit for a good job. I know that he will be greatly missed and his position will be hard for someone else to fill.
Come the end of next month we have an anniversary too so we have a couple of things to celebrate!!
Planning on staying home the rest of this wet day. We've started the second jigsaw puzzle and will work on that some. I have some reading I'd like to do and also making more weave-it squares. And I really must get the rest of my recipes transferred over to the other website. MealsMatter goes away January 15.
Do your cheeks ever hurt from smiling too much!? Hope you're have one of those days.
Happyone : )
There is a whole new kind of life ahead,
full of experiences just waiting to happen.
Some call it retirement.
I call it bliss.
