The only wildlife I saw about today were birds. They were chattering away. I think they are anticipating spring and were just happy. All along the paths green grass is starting to appear. I still haven't seen any daffodils breaking ground yet, but I'm sure it won't be long.
A couple of blocks from home I walk up on the curb and it always makes me feel like a little kid when I do that and try to balance walking on it. Today I was thinking how easy it is to keep my balance when low to the ground but how hard it would be if I was up high off the ground. : )
Today I took 12,404 steps on my walk.
*********************************First thing this morning I got a load of clothes washed and hung up outside.
My oven has been needing a cleaning for a while now so I got that going early too. I have a self-cleaning oven so just have to turn it on to the cleaning mode and I don't have to do a thing. The reason I put it off is because it takes 4 hours and 20 minutes and I hate the smell it makes. I could go out while its cleaning but I just feel like I should stay home just in case something goes wrong. I don't know what could go wrong but I just feel better if I'm home.
The last time the oven was cleaned, not long after I noticed that something had spilled over on the bottom of the oven, but I just could not remember what it could have been. It wasn't a little something either and I couldn't remember making anything that would spill over like that. I can't imagine that I wouldn't have noticed it when it happened and I started to think that the oven itself leaked something. Don't ask me what but I'm going to keep check after it's cleaned this time to see if it comes back again.
This afternoon was library time!! We went first to the library closest to our house and I found three books on my list there. I really wanted to get the book, Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell and they didn't have it there so we went to the library in Savage and they had it there. Also picked up another book so have 5 altogether. : )
Faceless Killers is the first Kurt Wallander mystery in the series. We have been watching the Masterpiece Mystery TV series Wallander from Netflix and I have discovered that it is based on the books written by Henning Mankell. I'd never heard of him before but really like the show so thought I'd check out the books. He has written a lot of books so now I have even more books on my to read list!
I bet you can guess what I'll be doing later!!
I've enjoyed my day and hope you've had a good one too.
Till next time........
Happyone : )
