☃ ☃ ☃ ☃Winter and snow has finally arrived around here. This morning it was 24 degrees and snow was falling and there was a bit of a wind as I went out the door at 6:50 to take my walk.
Walked my town route and then added to it just a bit. I enjoyed walking in the snow. I wore my hiking boots and my feet stayed dry. I had lots of layers on so stayed warm. 3 layers on the bottom, 2 pairs of socks, and 5 top layers - turtle neck, tee shirt, sweat shirt, and 2 hoodies.
Didn't see any of the animals but did see their tracks in the snow - deer, rabbits, and some small animal.
I walked 6 miles.
☃ ☃ ☃ ☃The kids and their parent enjoyed looking at the trains yesterday. They were here about 2 1/2 hours. Ken made up a list of things for them to find on the layout and then they had to check them off when they found them. It's fun and makes you have to look at the detail.
These pictures are a couple of the new scenes Ken's been working on recently.
|Look at all those clothes lines.|
|A new house is being built and a sewer line is getting hooked up.|
☃ ☃ ☃ ☃We were hurrying last night to get home from church to see the start of Downton Abby. Ken noticed a car coming up fast behind us. I commented that maybe it was the police. I no sooner got the words out of my mouth when the lights came on behind us and it WAS the police. We pulled over and the office asked us where we were going and Ken told him home from church and I piped in with, "We were trying to get home to watch Downton Abby." He smiled and let us off with a warning. : ) We got home 2 minutes after 9 so just missed a couple of minutes.
☀ ☃ ☀ ☃Here's what it looked like out of our front and back windows this morning.
Made a good start on this weeks house work.
That second jigsaw puzzle has been calling to me since I finished the last one so got it started today. This one is a 1000 pieces and so far I've got all the pieces laid out and the border done.
Half price night at Brena's so we went there for supper.
Plan on doing some reading and then starting another baby weave-it blanket while watching a Netflix.
Chocolate chip ice cream will be my choice of snack tonight.
Hope your day has been a happy one.
happyone : )
