The deer have come back or at least out of hiding. I saw at least 10 of them. Not sure of the count because the first few I saw it was still dark out and I could just see the whites of their tails as they ran away.
There were quite a lot of people out around the lake considering the weather and it is Monday.
The other day I mentioned there were 9 footbridges I walked over on the connect the path route. The route around the lake has 7 of them. Before I even get to the lake I walk over 5 and there are 2 at the lake, the red one and the cement one. Then there are 7 short little wooden bridges like this which just go over a low wet area. All the bridges are well maintained.
I walked 6.4 miles.
Ken is home from work today taking a sick day. He has a head cold. He's been spending most of the day reading.
The fog is now gone but it is still cloudy and pretty dreary outside.
We finished the puzzle yesterday and took I it apart this morning. I thought that was going to be the end of jigsaw puzzles for a while but when I put this one away another one caught my eye, so we are doing another one. The one we started now is all comic books, but it should go fast because there are only 500 pieces in it.
I'm had to bake another loaf of bread in the bread machine. We seem to be going through a lot of bread lately.
The major accomplishment for me today was getting the bathroom cleaned. I don't mind cleaning sinks and toilets but I HATE cleaning our huge shower. The whole thing is tile and I just hate it. I'm sure I've mentioned that before!! : )
Here it is, and I'm happy to say it is now sparkling clean once again.
I would rather have my old claw foot bathtub with a shower curtain around it like at the old house!!
I have a friend Sara-Jane who I've known since we worked together for about a year in our first jobs after high school. I left to get married and moved away but we kept in touch for years with calls and letters afterwards and visited when I got back to town. But then we stopped keeping in touch for the last 5 years or so, it may be even longer than that. Anyway, I sent her and her husband a Christmas card with my email address and just today I got an email from her. : ) I was so happy to hear from her and to be back in touch once again. It made my day.
I finally got all those recipes moved over to Ziplist. Now my next big computer project is to get all my books listed over at TheLibraryThing. Some books have to be deleted because I know longer have them so it will take some time to get everything sorted out.
We've been enjoying watching a British show called Clatterford from Netflix. It's about a bunch of women in a women's club in an English village . They are all a bit eccentric in their own way and its is pretty funny. Has anyone else watched this show before?
That's about it for today.
Hope your Monday is a happy one.
Happyone : )
Go outside and walk a bit,
long enough to take in and record new surroundings.
Enjoy the best kept secret around.
The ordinary, everyday landscape
that touches any explorer with magic.
