trail evening

Yesterday after work I went to the Brockdale trailhead for Trinity Trail. Though the temperature was near 100 degrees, I walked for an hour. I
saw a rabbit, a Carolina wren, cardinals, red-bellied woodpeckers, mourning doves, an eastern bluebird and various other things.

At home, I turned in fairly early with my book "Great North Road" I am now
reading it in good-sized chunks, and am in the last 300 out of 900 pages. I notice that I am a slower reader with my e-reader than in a hard copy, but I do not mind that. I like physical books, but I like the e-reader's lack of clutter. My e-reader is now 2 years old. It's an obscure brand, a pandigital novel tablet I got for much less than the going rate for mainstream tablets at the time, and it's been delightful.

We dined on pork loin and pasta last night. My wife's aunt had surgery on her shoulder,which apparently went well. Today I am thinking about shelter animals.
