This morning the temperature was 45 degrees and I walked under cloudy skies.
Finished my walk and was almost to the Jeep when it started to rain.
Instead of recording morning walk miles, this year I'll be recording the number of STEPS on my walk - 12,850
The town pond still has a light coating of ice even with the warm temperatures.
Walked first to the post office to drop a birthday card down the slot for our youngest grandson who will be 17 next Tuesday. He lives in Honolulu.
Continued through town and back down the road toward home a ways, turned around and went back to town.
Walked around both of the cemeteries and the ball park too.
A little muddy along here and walked on the grass.
This is Eleanor, the feral cat that Karen is befriending.
Didn't want to get any closer because I thought she would run away.
Saw Joy out walking, hadn't seen her for a while so we stopped to talk for a bit.
☁️ 🥾 😊
Yesterday after supper I felt like doing a puzzle but didn't want to start the new one of 1000 pieces so I picked out an old one with just 300 pieces.
Wanted to see how long it would take me.
Ken was surprised that it took me only 1 hour and 45 minutes.
This afternoon I took down all the Christmas decorations and stored them away in the round shaker boxes.
Feel good being back to normal.
We don't have an artificial tree so don't have to store one.
Took both puzzles apart and put them away and now all set to new a new one.
Will probably wait a couple of days.
Had a little time to read before supper.
I put a couple of pork chops in the slow cooker this morning.
One of the chops I shredded for Ken to put on a roll.
I made mashed potatoes and beans to go with my pork chop.
That's it for today.
Thanks for visiting.
My step count for 2022 was 5,915,267 steps.
That comes out to about 2,025 miles.
This is NOT just my morning walk BUT steps for the WHOLE DAY.
The coins I found on my walks during 2022 added up to $3.21. I'll never get rich this way.
Since I've been putting the coins in the banks (1997) the total is $261.22.
