I walked around the neighborhood, down a path or two and down the road around the business park.
There were lots of people out walking dogs. I don't think I've ever seen so many people with their dogs on any other morning!!
Behind the business park down in the wet land I saw 3 deer. Then when I was walking along the path I saw the fox. This time I was able to get a picture of him. It's hard to do because they usually run off. This one followed me for a little bit.
I walked 6.1 miles which was 12,248 steps today.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The book I finished yesterday was The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. It is set in Scotland.
In 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.
Present time Carrie, an author wants to write a book about the events. She moves near Slains Castle where the story takes place and starts to write the book. The heroine of the book is one of her ancestors.
As she writes she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction and Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory.
This book has two stories in one - the one Carrie is writing and her present life. It is a historical fiction romance and an excellent read. I loved the book and it has a great ending. It was another of those books that when it ended I cried because it was so good. It was hard to say good-bye to all the characters.
Thanks Auntie for recommending another great book!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last night we got a call from Terri, our realtor and another offer has been made for the Savage house. We countered with an offer and are now waiting to hear back. This buyer sounds a lot better than the last one that. She likes old houses and knows their little quirks so we're hoping that this will be it. I have a good feeling about this.
We went out and about did some errands today and enjoyed the nice sunny day though it was a bit chilly. Stopped at the realtor, Walmart, and the library and now back home until supper. We are going out someplace, just have where decided yet.
That's it for today.
Hope you have found some happiness scattered about your day.
Happyone : )
The best things in life are free.
And it is important never to lose sight of that.
So look around you.
Wherever you see friendship, loyalty,
laughter, and love.....
there is your treasure.

Betsy - I wouldn't say I was obsessed with exercise - maybe with walking. : ) Walking for me is so much more than exercising. I have a link on my sidebar where I explain why I walk. My legs get a good workout walking but the rest of my body needs a workout too and that's why I also do other exercises with light weights. It only takes 30 minutes and I don't do it every day. I strive for 4 days but usually just make it 3 days a week. AND I have to make myself do it - I don't enjoy it but I like how I feel after wards.
OE - Thanks for identifying the red-tail hawk. : ) I looked it up in my bird book and I'm pretty sure that's what it is.
Shane - I don't take a book with me, but I do have a bird book at home that I use.
