I found a friendly school crossing guard this morning on my walk. :-) She was standing by her car waiting for some kids to come along and as I walked by I said my usual good morning. She said good morning back and had a smile to go along with it. I stopped to chat for a bit. It was a very mild morning and we commented that how nice it was that we didn't have to wear a lot of layers today. She said every spring people ask her if she has lost weight! All our layers make us look a bit roly-poly!
I got some house cleaning done today. That nice big tiled double shower sure is nice but not so much fun when you have to clean it. Not really complaining though, because it is really nice to have all that room in there.
I started reading the fourth and last novel in the 4 in 1 book by Robert Louis Stevenson called The Master of Ballantrae but I just couldn't get into it so I've decided not to read it. There was a time when I would have read it anyway, but there are just too many books that I want to read to be reading books that I don't like.
Kenny was only a little late getting home from work but not too late for supper. After supper we went to check out the Ace Hardware store a few miles away. It may not sound like a fun thing to do but we enjoyed our walk around the store. It is a great hardware store and has things to buy that you don't even know you need. We went to get hooks and clothesline rope so Kenny can put up my clothesline on the deck. I will be able to just hook it on the two privacy sections of fence when I need to hang my clothes up and it will come down easily when not in use. I shouldn't be upsetting any one because of any covenants that way. By the way this morning on the radio they were talking about how people should go back to hanging clothes outside as a great way to save energy and suggested going here to check it out.
While at the hardware store we also bought our first thing for spring - a bird bath (which was on sale) to put out on the deck. I was going to take a picture of it but since it was dark out I'll take one tomorrow and post it. I am looking forward to starting a container garden this year out on the deck now that I don't have a yard. I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time out there. I wish these spring like days that we are having were here to stay but it's only February and I'm sure we have lots more of winter weather coming ahead.
We watched a Netflex, had some ice cream, I knitted a little and now I'm off to read some more of another book I started today.
Wednesday is just about over and I hope yours was a Happy One. :-)
