kestrel and noodles

I went to First United Methodist Church in the morning. The church has an alternative fellowship hall teaching service which I attended.

After church, I drove to Allen Station Park. I saw an American kestrel on a small tree.

I got a good, long look as it perched and moved about a bit.

I went to Weight Watchers in the afternoon I was up 1.6 pounds. After Weight Watchers, I went to Fry's Electronics. I did not want to shop so much as to walk. The huge electronics store offered me a chance to move about without facing the cold and wind. I was pleased to see that the prices at the Fry's were comparable to what I paid for the
computer I had custom-made for me. Though I could have gotten a similar one custom-made via an eBay vendor, the premium I paid for using the small company I chose does not appear to be too much.

Tonight we ate chicken piccata with noodles and wonderful roasted brussels sprouts. It's funny how roasted brussels sprouts are part of the mass consciousness these days.

Now we are watching Downtown Abbey. I am also reading up on the operating system Solydx. The coming week will be cold.
