The wind died down from yesterday and the sun was out but it was still pretty cold with a temperature of 24 degrees, but I was still nice and warm with all my layers on.
I walked down some paths and roads and then walked down this trail behind the school. New wood chips had just be added. They made a crunching sound as I walked because they were slightly frozen.
I walked 6.2 miles.
*****************************This morning when I got back home I realized I had forgotten my key. It was a good day to forget it because Ken was home to let me in. : )
I made us French toast for breakfast and then we went out and about doing some errands. One stop was the library. One of the libraries near home was closed for a while so they could build a brand new one right next store to the old one which just opened last month. We stopped by there today to check it out. It was huge, bright and warm with lots of brand new books and I just couldn't leave without checking a couple out. Here's the entrance to the library. Another good thing about it is that there is plenty of parking!!!
Ken picked out a couple of old movies at the library and we'll probably watch one tonight. Get Low with Bill Murray and Robert Duvall. On the box it says, "Funny and Touching. Watching Murray spar with Duvall is pure pleasure." The other movie is Being John Malkovich. I saw this years ago and though I don't really remember much about it I remember thinking that it was one of the worst movies I'd ever seen. I wonder if I'll still feel the same way.
That's it for today. I'm going to go and do a little counted cross stitch now before supper.
Hope your Saturday has been good to you.
A smile from me to you.
There is nothing like walking to get the feel of a country.
A fine landscape is like a piece of music;
it must be taken at the right tempo.
Even a bicycle goes too fast.
