Fun Nice Day

Friday, December 06, 2013

I got up in pain again this morning. It took a while, before I could get going. I was determined today. So my husband and I took our dog to the Riverwalk in the early evening. We put in a really long and good walk. The temperature outside was excellent. It was about 78 degrees. It was humid though. Still it was so nice. We had forgot it was the night for groups to be out caroling on the Riverwalk. We saw white paper bags with candles all along the walkways. So we got a double treat. We not only put in a good walk, before the caroling started, we doubled back most of what we had already walked to enjoy the listening to each group of carolers. In one area they served hot apple cider and cookies. We had the cider, but didn't take the cookies. The walk back to our car was so nice. It had gotten dark, but we had the street lamps to light our way. We could see the city lights reflecting on the river. The air was so fresh and the sound of the water was very pleasant as we walked through the beautiful park. Our dog was worn out after all the excitement and attention. We took him home to get some rest. Afterwards we went to dinner. Everything was so nice and tasty. My husband and I just relaxed and enjoyed each others company. On the way home hubbie put on Christmas music and we both sang together. Both of us sang out of tune. LOL It was great! It turned out to be a really nice day. Hubbie is snoozing on the couch. Our dog is snoozing on his bed. I think I wore him and the dog out. emoticon

I feel so blessed. I feel so loved. I feel so happy!

    You had a great day together! How fun it sounds!

    You hit the nail on the head, in your comment on my blog. I get too distracted by a lot of groups, and the social aspects, and don't get up and move! So many nice people on SP. And I mostly ignore them all, anymore, which is sad. But there's been a few prolonged periods when my time sitting up in a chair was limited, and, since I don't have a laptop, it just was not possible to keep up with groups. I was too foggy with being ill after operations sometimes to really concentrate on chats, too. I'm better, now, thankfully, but I do need to move more.

    Some cities do allow hens, but not roosters. If you get to feeling up to it, maybe you could check, though Chaos may not like chickens, either. Or maybe he will like them entirely TOO much! hehehe... We're lucky in that our dog loves cats and chickens. The new cat, Paws, is afraid of her, a bit, but he's adjusting and learning that she's not a threat. It's taking him a lot of time.

    Hope you feel better soon and have less pain. Winter is hard on me. I've been having problems since it got cooler.

    Sounds like a great day! I am glad you were able to get out. It is really cold here, high today was 10 (and it was minus 3 when I woke up). I exercised at the gym, but my only outdoor exercise was shoveling snow. I'm glad you got to hear the carolers!

    I am typing as we travel south to Lebanon Indiana to celebrate grandson's birthday. Cold and windy, we left Michigan in a snow storm. Exactly the opposite of what you describe during your walk! Prediction we definitely will have a white Christmas in Ludington. Enjoy reading your blogs. Have a great weekend!

    i'd rather be someplace that was 78 degrees at night, instead of the minus 8 we are having tonight.
