I saw and heard a couple of hawks of some kind high up in the trees talking to each other on either side of the path.
A few people out walking dogs and that was it.
A nice invigorating brisk 6.2 mile walk.
Here's a picture of our Christmas tree. It looks bigger than it actually is. It's a very skinny tree and is my height which is 5'5'. I really like it though and like to just sit there looking at it. The white and red lights are calming to me and I love the shimmering tinsel.
My mom tells me that the first Christmas her and my dad were married and didn't have much money they did their entire tree in just blue lights and tinsel. That must have been so pretty. I just might do that next year!!
My pantry was getting quite low, so it was time again to make a trip to the commissary. I made out a list and was out the door at 10. I took the highway and was there in no time. Renovations continue and some of the aisles are engulfed in plastic and we have a couple of VERY narrow aisles that are marked One Way. Interesting place the commissary, you never know what it's going to be like. Makes food shopping an adventure!
I was going to go home the back way but there were detours to get off the base that way and traffic was backed up, so I turned around and went out the other gate and took the highway home also.
My green bags all filled with good things to eat.
The contents of the bags sit here waiting to be put away.
I like putting everything away and having a pantry nice and full. What a good thankful feeling!
After looking at all the food, I was hungry and had my lunch.
This afternoon I tackled some items on my to do list for the day. Each morning I've been writing out a list now and keeping it on my desk top. It really does help me get more done.
I'm off now to do what I usually do late afternoon. Read and knit - my reward for working!
A happy and productive day to you.
There has been only one Christmas,
the rest are anniversaries.
