Indoor Walk

The sun came out today but it was still very cold. It did warm up a bit to 43 degrees this afternoon but it felt cold. I walked indoors again today. I walked 2.16 miles. here’s a shot of the sun through the window.

Snow Walk

It snowed about an inch overnight. My husband didn’t have to go to work today. We had a leisurely breakfast and relaxed most of the day. I did go on a walk in the building and walked 2.14 miles. Then in the evening we went to The Grilled Oyster Company for dinner. It was date night!

Egg Casserole

When I got up this morning I decided I wanted something different for breakfast. I was tired of eating cereal or spending the time to scramble eggs and all that. Instead I took those eggs and put them in a container. I put some cheese and ham and some old bread and made an egg casserole. While it was cooking I decided to do my walk. I only walked 1.33 miles while it was cooking. But the casserole was perfect! It was small enough to have for breakfast and was cooked just right! It was delicious!

So Sad

The lead singer of The Cranberries, Dolores O’Riordan, died today. Cause of death was unknown. I’m sure we’ll heard more about that in the days to come. I loved The Cranberries. Those 80s and 90s songs bring back memories. I loved this song:

Back To The Hall

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I hope you took some time to think about his contributions to our country and our world.

I got back to walking in the hall to get my exercise all at once instead of spreading it out throughout the day. I walked 2.16 miles in about 40 minutes. And of course since there is nothing to look at in the hall, I have a hall picture to share.

For dinner my wonderful husband baked a chicken! It was delicious.

By the end of the day I had walked 4.43 miles and got 10,180 steps.

Museum Walk

Today we went to the National Gallery of Art. We wanted to see the new Vermeer exhibit but the line was SO long. We didn’t think we could stand in that long line.

We decided we would wander around the 18th and 19th century painters and see their paintings. We saw some really nice paintings. It was fun walking around, studying a painting and then talking about what we see. It seems like we must have walked into 30 or so rooms. Here are some paintings I really enjoyed:

After a few hours of viewing paintings we decided to have some lunch. We went to the museum cafe. It happened to be the same cafe we went to on our very first date. We had fun reminiscing about our first date.

After lunch we decided to head over to the Hirshhorn Museum across the mall.

While we do enjoy some contemporary art, the exhibits we saw today were just odd. It might be that we are getting old or something but they just weren’t enjoyable like they have been in the past.

We walked the entire museum but just didn’t find anything we enjoyed. So it was time to go home. We ordered up an Uber and went home. We then had a relaxing evening.

Walked a total of 3.55 miles today.

Trail Walk

Today I decided to take a walk on the trail and look for birds. I didn’t find any new birds but I did see some icy creeks. I thought it was beautiful.

In other news our horrible president said this about immigration: “Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” Can you believe this is the leader of the free world? What a shithole racist he is. I don’t know how much more of this man I can take. Our country is so embarrassed by his words. It’s so sad. He really needs to be removed from office.

Total of 3.65 miles today.

Icy

It’s been really cold lately! Today I ran errands and on my way back over the Potomac river I noticed it was frozen. While stopped in traffic I pointed my camera to the river and snapped a picture. Not the best but you can see that it’s pretty frozen.

1.66 miles today.

Golden Globes

Last night I watched the Golden Globes. I had not seen any of the movies that won awards and many of the TV shows were new to me as well. I guess I need to catch up on TV and movies. The show itself was really good. Everyone dressed in black to show support for women who have been sexually harassed or abused by men in Hollywood. The #timesup hashtag was huge.

But the big deal from the show was Oprah. She won the Cecil B. DeMille Award. But her speech was simply amazing. She was very presidential. Everyone started tweeting Oprah2020. I did the same. I would love it if she ran for President. But I know she wouldn’t win. Our country is still too backwards to have a black female president. I still think she’s great.

I walked 1.45 miles today inside.

Winery Visit

We haven’t been to a winery in awhile. We decided to go to Delaplane Cellars today. We had wine to pick up. We tasted some nice wines and enjoyed some cheese and bread with a glass of wine afterwards. I got some nice photos with my iPhone 8 Plus. We had a really nice day.

I walked 1.71 miles when we got home today.

Time To Kill Christmas

Today was the day we took down all the Christmas decorations and Christmas trees. We had two. My husband really likes Christmas and decorating the house. When it’s finally time to take down the decorations he thinks it’s like we are killing Christmas. I remind him it will come again next year.

I didn’t go on any walks today because we spent the entire day working on the house. By the end of the day I ended up walking a total of 4.23 miles. I think that was enough exercise for me. I was dead tired by the end of today.

Our tree would not have lasted any longer. As I took the ornaments off the tree needles fell everywhere. By the time I had all the ornaments and lights off the tree, all the needles were on the floor. This is what it looked like. It had been up for almost 6 weeks so it served it’s purpose.
