walking in the shade

We woke up early this morning. My wife left to catch a plane to Kansas City. She will spend the weekend with family.  Then she will view the Monday total eclipse. I did not wish to take Monday off work, so I am staying here for the 75% eclipse. Perhaps I'll get to see the 100% when it comes a bit further south in 2024.

I took Beatrice for a morning walk.  The park was quiet. I suspect everyone was out preparing for the first day of school on Monday.  After our walk, I rode for 90 minutes on the Watters Branch bicycle path near our home.  August is a bit less active for bird life--nesting is largely done and not much migration has begun.  I had a good time pedaling slowly for several miles.

I ate lunch at Dickey's BBQ.  Then I decided I wanted to walk in the shade. I went to SunCreek Park in Allen. There I could walk in the shade and on the Trail at the Woods. In addition to woodland  birds, I got a good luck at a Velvet Ant, the flightless wasp with vivid colors.

The rest of the day I largely rested. I went to Subway to pick up some dinner. I meant to get some chores and hobby stuff done tonight. But right now I think I may go lie down and rest.

breakfast: Kix cereal and skim milk
lunch: BBQ turkey, green beans and a roll
dinner: turkey sandwich and baked chips
