I saw a few deer (at least these escaped the hunting from yesterday), the heron and once again I saw the fox. He is becoming a regular around the lake. The geese were all unusually quiet. Maybe it was too early for them to be up and around yet. : )
I came across this light spot on the path and the shape caught my attention. To me it looks like a little boy sitting cross legged with his head down. What do you think?
I took 12,645 steps on today's walk.
********************When it's above freezing I still hang my clothes out on the line but I only do one load because it takes all day to dry and I have to get it out early.
Added a few items to my grocery shopping list and left for the commissary. Lots of cars out on the road getting there but once inside there were few people. I had no lines to wait on and was in and out in no time. Then once again lots of cars on the road. Most people must be out Christmas shopping and aren't in the food stores yet.
I bought some granny smith apples and they are really big, the biggest ones I've ever seen. I put a tape measure around it and it measured just about 13 inches.
After lunch I went out front in my little garden and tidied it up. Pulled up the dead flowers, trimmed the shrubs and raked. I don't have to do anything because the townhouse association takes care of it all, but I like to do it. They will be by some time and put fresh mulch down for the winter.
I may have mentioned that I really dislike my refrigerator. One reason was the ice maker. It made loud noses and the ice cubes it made were half moon thin useless things. I took the whole contraption out and have a small cooler on the top shelf in the freezer and I now make my own ice cubes the old fashioned way - with ice cube trays. We never run out because I empty them every day and they are normal looking ice cubes and I am happy. : )
So that is it for today.
Hope your having a sunshiny kind of day.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,
everything is softer and more beautiful.
