Both of us were up watching movies last night until 11:30. I enjoyed seeing The Green Mile again, it brings out so many emotions and even a bit of fantasy. I like the show a lot but it is a long one. Bill and I slept in on Sunday, Jan. 31st, the last day of this month. It was 8 o’clock when I sat up to look at the clock. It was nice to hear Bill say that he slept right through, rare but great! 😊
I peeked out the window blinds and was pleased to see that it would be a day with some sunshine again. First, I’d have a tea with my sweetie and read some blogs. For some reason, I felt hunger pangs so had a bit of cereal with cream as well. The problem with sleeping in like that is that the morning goes so quickly but then that is what our weekends are for.
|I walked the trail today|
this part was pretty well tramped down
After I had a cup of tea at 9:30, I bundled up against the -8C/17F and went for my walk. I praise myself and thank the man upstairs as soon as I get out for pushing myself to get moving. Once out there, the walk was a reward in itself. It felt colder with the winds and I had my scarf across my chin and mouth when walking directly towards it. Once more, there were a few other walkers, all of us with rosy cheeks and smiles.
|The end of the trail and then I followed the streets|
I took pictures of the street signs today since they are not regular ones and I wouldn’t remember. It was a 45 min. walk, 2 ½ miles today and I was happy to return home. I hadn’t layered up too much so wasn’t overly heated when I removed my coat. Some days, I just want to get the coat, sweater, t-shirt OFF! Ha ha. Once I cooled down, I slipped on my new leather jacket and asked Bill to take a picture of it for me.
We didn’t really have lunch, per say, since we’d eaten breakfast, just a snack with our coffee break at 9:30. I went down and worked on the puzzle for a couple of hours and made good progress. I came upstairs around 4:15 with a tea for myself and a Zero Coke for Bill. I cut a few pieces of cheddar cheese for us to munch on to tide us over until supper and then relaxed.
The book I picked up from the library is a Biography, which I didn’t realize, so I’m not getting into it as quickly as I’d hoped. I’ll give it a few more chapters before I decide. My daughter loved the book but she is more into the history side of things than I am. We’ll see, I haven’t given up yet.
I noticed 3 of these hearts under some trees
andI wonder if they are burial sites for their pets 😢
Gee, I think bikers live here This was a nice street and I don't recall going down it all the way

Too bad for Covid, some of these stores would be interesting
this was a dance studio?
It took 15 minutes to reheat the meal and 12 minutes in the oven for the rolls. 😊 It was a good Sunday night supper. Oh, we each had a piece of cheap Walmart cherry pie for dessert. For $2.50, I couldn’t make it for that and I’m pleased to say my crust is much better!
Bill stayed downstairs to watch a rerun of a movie since he’d made his lunch while supper was warming up. I came upstairs to finish my post and settle in for the evening. This was a quiet day but a good one.
My legs are still feeling some of the achy-ness from crawling around on the floors on Thursday and Friday but I’m not giving in to it, hence my walks. I hope you’ve enjoyed this last day of the month. It hasn’t been a bad winter – so far – but I’m still looking forward to February.
Thank you for your visit today!
