I went walking yesterday morning and today. One day around the lake and today I walked my connect the paths route but connected them up in a different way. It is good to walk different ways once in a while, keeps the walks interesting. Both days I walked just a bit over 6 miles. It is quite dark when I start out now and doesn't get light until I've walked a couple of miles. It will only get worse until we have the time change coming up in a few weeks. I didn't see any deer today but I heard 4 gun shots way off in the distance. Maybe the deer are hiding. I saw a fox which crossed the path up ahead of me. Very few people out both days.
I spent the day at home yesterday and this morning it was knitting day. Met the group at Savage Mill. As is becoming my routine, I stopped off at the library afterwards to drop off a book or two. I used extreme will power and didn't check anything else out!!
When I was nearly at the end of my walk this morning a block away from my house a street cleaner was going down the street supposedly cleaning the street. But all it did was sweep the leaves out to the middle of the street.
They should have one of the vacuum trucks and pick them up!
It also bothers me when the groundskeepers use a blower to blow everything into the street after they have just mowed the lawn. Another time I wonder just what is the point. When they don't sweep up the stuff they blow around, it all just settles back down and it's still there. I really hate having to drive past when the stuff is being blown into the street. And that's my complaint for the day!
The last few days have been so nice. We are getting one last taste of summer and I am so enjoying it. I've sat outside on the deck and read and it's been just beautiful. I'm enjoying every moment of it.
I have a few things to do yet before Ken gets home from work so off I go.
Hope all is fine in your part of the world and that your Tuesday has brought you some happiness.
