Yesterday got away from me and before I knew it, dark was fast approaching. Driving out to get my Sunday paper, I saw the sliver of the moon judt before it set! Beautiful!
I parked at the library and started my walk in the dark. Why I didn't take my flash or headband light I'll never know. I walked along to the soiuth of the lake and into a small neighborhood........ On the way back, I needed to cross a divided street and fell onto the median which had a higher curb than I realized. I ended up with road rash on one knee, a bruise on the other! I jammed the ring finger of my right hand and broke the rest of my fall with my chin. Feeling very sorry for myself and VERY clumsy I went to a nearby grocery store for first aid.
I walked back to my car, went home and relaxed with a real beer! Today, the only thing that hurt was my finger!
Today I went to Curves and then on a daylight walk to a nearby St Paul water/lake system. Getting out of the car to start the walk, I saw my first pellican ever, I think! The lake system is part of the midwestern flyway. A wonderful walk, kicking thru leaves and enjoying the lake system. This walk was an out and back walkretracing my steps; a total of 61 minutes.
I came home and logged my food, and the streak is going 10 days strong!
