This morning I took a 5 mile hike on Trinity Trail. I took the shady part near
Highland Park. The lake is way down due to drought. I saw lots of the common regional birds, but in particular I got nice pictures of a blue jay feather and of a butterfly.
My Weight Watchers meeting worked out well. I had lost 3 pounds. That brings my total to 9 pounds in 6 weeks. This was also "bring a favorite recipe" week. I wrote out what I do, which is not much more than bake things on a single cookie sheet, all within an hour, and vary the time of baking a bit for the item baked. I had also written my pork crockpot roast with sauerkraut, but did not bother to read it out. My fellow participants did not derive my non-creative (but better, to me, than salad(s)) approach.
I got a sandwich at Subway. Then I finished My Dog Tulip. The writer/narrator/novelist frustrated me because his views on spaying and lots of other things were outdated. But I should have allowed for era. The movie did not live up to its first half hour, but I'm glad I saw it.
I had a great call with my father late this afternoon. Then my nephew and my brother took me out to dinner. We had a great time together. We went to Hibachi Rocks in Allen.
This was a good weekend.
