So while waiting for the sun to come up and warm things up so the ice could melt I did a few thing around the house.
Did some cleaning upstairs and had a break and ate breakfast with Ken. At 9:30 it was still only 31 but the sun was out and things were starting to melt so I went back to cleaning for a while.
Then after lunch the temperature had risen to 41 and the sun was shining brightly and it seemed the perfect time to go for a walk.
I didn't walk any particular route but stayed mostly on the paths.
Walked down a road or two also.
Not a cloud in the sky as I looked up through the trees.
I saw a woodpecker but don't know what kind it was. A little one with just a touch of red on the underside of his neck.
I heard an owl but couldn't find him in the trees.
There were quite a few people out along the paths enjoying this beautiful afternoon. As you know I like walking best in the morning but wow this day was just perfect. Maybe it was God telling me not to forget how beautiful the rest of the day is too. : )
My steps on this walk were 12,896.
This evening we are going to have supper at an Italian place that we've just been too once before. We are going to try their brick oven pizza tonight.
Ken's retirement Happy Hour at Ram's Head yesterday was so nice. He thought that maybe 15 people would show up but there were 28 people there and they came on a snowy evening. All had such nice things to say about Ken. I'm so glad that his coworkers really do appreciate all the work he has done and has contributed to making their work easier and a happy place to work. He will be missed. I am so proud of him.
A happy day to one and all.
Happy Valentine's Day.
Happyone : )
