I was awake off and on through the night and early morning on Saturday, Mar. 24th. I think the biggest issue was the warm night. We were surprised that it only went down to 61F overnight and was a mild 65F when I went for my walk at 7:15 this morning. Spending 8 hours on flannel sheets and under a duvet is what made my sleep so restless.
Bill and I both finished books last night, The Runaway Jury and The Winner, so I carried them with me. Unfortunately, they went for the whole walk with me since the clubhouse didn’t open until 8.
Back home, Bill was up so I made our hot drinks and we noticed
Ron and Loree were getting close to leaving. We walked over to say goodbyes and
using my tripod I was able to capture a selfie with all 6 of us. They were on
the road by 9 if not before.

First, I stopped at the mail box and put Mom’s card in. I don’t know if she’ll get it by Easter but I’m hoping so. I took the books into the Bear’s Den (my name for the room) which has the selection of books. I noticed that my painted rock was still there so decided to take it back. Even if someone noticed it, they might think it part of the décor and not want to be ‘stealing’ anything from the park.

|Interesting how these roots curl in the rock|
It is actually attached to a tree, which I didn't include in the picture

At 5 or so we returned home and I took another walk, and you guessed it, more pictures of the sun’s reflection on the pond. I can’t seem to get enough. It is so pretty. I checked for my rock that I hid earlier and it was still nestled in its spot. I know, I’m impatient but I’m anxious to see it find a home. 😊 While I was gone, Bill used our antenna, which we didn’t think we were able to use because of something we’d done, and found 7 stations in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.
It was good to watch the news and weather for Grove and we’re happy the discussion came up this afternoon. We actually watched part of a 1965 western with Charles Bronson. That was cool! For supper tonight, I warmed up my dinner plate of leftovers. The catfish and veggies from last night were very good and Bill enjoyed Van Camp’s brown beans on toast. With dishes cleaned up, I set down to finish my post and download the day’s pictures.

Next time we see them, maybe they'll be around the fish pond?
