downy woodpecker 1 25 2014 watters creek trail

I continued with my continuing legal education today. I listened to the rest of one seminar about not abusing substances (apparently, lawyers need an extra reminder) and part of another about respecting people of diverse cultures.

I worked on a lot of family-related paperwork, getting a fair bit done, but wanting to do a fair bit more.
I did get some nice compact fluorescent bulbs overhead, which is a not only a greener choice, but also will solve the common problem of incandescent burn-out. Unlike Mr. Neil Young, I do not believe that it is better for bulbs to burn out than to fade away.

I took a 90 minute walk on the Watters Trail. I can leave my house, walk a few blocks in my neighborhood, cross a main thoroughfare, walk into another neighborhood, and find a neat creek-side sidewalk trail.
I saw lots of yellow-rumped warblers, two downy woodpeckers (above), two red-bellied woodpeckers, a couple of mockingbirds, a turkey vulture, two blue jays and something hip and black and white that I could not identify.

We ate Thai tonight at Silver Thai. I really enjoyed my seafood soup. I am focused on enjoying my weekend while getting lots of practical chores done.
