I walked around the lake and was surprised that there weren't more people there because it wasn't dark. There were just a few of the regulars I see most days.
When the weather is in the 30's is when I start wearing a few extra layers of clothing. Light layers work best. I wear tights under my sweat pants. On top the first layer is a long sleeve turtle neck, then a short sleeve tee shirt, followed by a sweat shirt. The outer layer is a big zip up sweat shirt with a hood. It's important to keep your head warm.
Colder weather I add stretch leggings under my sweat pants, a wide headband over my ears, a neck scarf, and a final big flannel shirt/coat with another hood.
It all keeps me toasty warm even on those real cold days. How cold before I don't walk or take a short walk you ask - about 10 degrees. Thankfully we don't have very many of those extra cold days!!
I saw the heron over by the lake and lots of the geese were flying away and others were coming in, all making lots of noise.
I watched a hawk like bird chase a king fisher and I saw a few deer around too. Here's
one of them who stayed around to get his picture taken.
*******************I finished reading another book by Elizabeth Berg called Open House. Another one I really liked. So far I've really liked everything I've read by her. I'm going to make a list of all her books and read every single one of them. This one was about a woman whose husband leaves her and how she deals with it. I find this and all her books are a mix of happy, sad, funny, and makes you stop and think.
I will start another of her books later today.
Did some shredding and filled a big bag just in time for tomorrow which is recycling pick up day. I've said before I really like to shred.
I've been making some weave-it squares for a baby blanket I'm making and almost have enough squares now.
Yesterday afternoon we finally saw a little sun and today the sun has come out again. Sure is nice to see it. Makes me appreciate the nice warm feel of the sunshine even more going without if for a whole week.
Hope your Monday is a joyful one.
Happyone : )
An early morning walk
is a blessing for the whole day.
