Today has been a lazy day. I am worn out from a week of traveling, so it was nice to sleep in this morning.
I also played a few computer games and passed a level on one game that I have been working on for weeks.
I also spent some time watching the special Sound of Music commercials for Wal-Mart. I went to school with the father in the commercials. He also lived just a couple blocks away from us.
Then it was time to watch some basketball to see if the Warriors would win again. I think I paid more attention to my book than to the game though. I finished reading Prisoners of Geography while watching the game. See Maps and History
Then it was time for a Christmas feast. I arrived at my friends just a bit late so did not get a picture before the meal started. Here you can see a sampling of what we had. We had both turkey and ham, so no question about which is the proper one to have at Christmas 🙂
As I was leaving I had to take a picture of the Christmas decorations. My friends are in the pool business and have a really cool display of Santa and a hot tub.
It is interesting how popular this type of display has been over the last couple of years. There is one yard that I pass while walking that has about a dozen of them along with the sign that is the first picture in this post.
I have not done much walking in the last week, so decided that I really needed a long walk once I got home. I walked about three and a half miles tonight, and still didn’t reach my daily goal. However, it is the most steps I have had in a day during the last week. I really need to meet my goal tomorrow.
I really like this picture that I took during the walk. It is interesting how these two shadows cross and create a dark diamond. Streetlights can make for interesting shadows.
Now for some sleep. I was tired earlier, but not now. I really need to sleep to combat the jet lag.
