Stopped at the overlook today
on the way home from Grantsville this afternoon
and took this picture.
It's about 3 miles up the road from our house.
☁ ☁ ☁ ☁Another very cold morning so no outside walking for me. Back down to the basement for my walk. I go down the first thing in the morning just as if I was walking outside. This morning I walked 4 miles and then in the afternoon I walked another 2 miles.
I have 6 piles of blocks with 4 in each pile. One block represents 500 steps and after every 500 steps I move a block and when a pile is done I have walked 1 mile. Here I've walked 4 miles with 2 left to go. It seems to go by faster if I do it this way. I have tried walked on a treadmill and just don't like it. This works best for me if I can't go outside.
☁ ☃ ☃ ☃I made some bread this morning and put some chicken in the slow cooker for Chicken Noodle Soup for supper tonight.
Did a few things around the house and then we went out to do a few errands.
Worked on the latest puzzle a bit. Always have one out during the winter months.
Dropped off a book at the library and got the next one to read for the book club.
Not many birds around the feeders lately except for the crows which I like to watch but today a downy woodpecker stopped by.
The Chicken soup was a good choice for this cold winters day.
I thought I had posted the recipe before but can't seem to find it so I guess I didn't.

That's my day so far. We are headed out in the snow to church in just a little bit.
