It was a chilly 42 degrees again this morning when I walked but it wasn't windy and the sun was shining brightly. Such a beautiful morning and perfect for walking around the lake.
There were quite a few people out there this morning walking, running, and fishing at the shore line and in boats. This picture shows a couple of boats and their reflections.
More of the geese are back and I walked past this group of them
and only got hissed at once.
Here's a few baby ones as well.
I saw a few rabbits, deer and the usual birds.
I was out walking a little longer than usual this morning because I stopped to talk to some of my walker friends to tell them I was moving and to say good bye. There are a few others I'd still like to say good bye to.
I walked 6 miles.
Here's a couple more picture of the lake. I took these yesterday.
Today we boxed up lots of kitchen stuff. At one point we ran out of boxes and paper and went driving around behind stores trying to find some. We hit the mother load of boxes in back of a Pet Smart and found a bunch of newspapers someone had thrown away. Back home we boxed up everything in the kitchen that we wouldn't be needing until we are in the new house!!
Most everything is out of my loft too. The table, chair, keyboard and empty cabinet is all that is left.
Things are moving along nicely and we don't feel rushed doing a little each day.
We are going to have a time of it when it comes to unpacking
because we aren't packing anything in order. All kinds of things are mixed together and we haven't marked anything. What fun it will be to open up boxes and have no idea what will be in it. : )
I did a couple loads of laundry. I've taken the clothes off the line but they are all stacked up on the bed waiting to be folded. And that is just what I'm going to do now.
I usually fold them on the island in the kitchen but it was covered in packing material when I brought them in so just took them upstairs.
Hope your day was sunny and bright and you spent some time remembering all the men and women who died so we could enjoy this day. (even though the real
Memorial Day is May 30 - my birthday) : )
Happyone : )
Ceremonies are important.
But our gratitude has to be more than visits
to the troops, and once a year Memorial Day ceremonies.
We honor the dead best by treating the living well.
