cold to warm

Monday proved cold. I walked at Noon in Bradfield Park. After work, I walked in Collin Creek Mall. That mall is less vibrant now, and needs a revival. I worry that some day we will wax nostalgic about the golden days of shopping malls. Monday night we watched on television as Chloe Kim won the half-pipe snowboarding gold medal at the Olympics. We dined on baked chicken breast.

Tuesday was slightly less chilly, but still quite chilly. I went to Half-Priced Books in Garland. I always shop the clearance section I rarely buy hard copy books, as I try to confine my reading to ebooks. But I make exceptions for guide books and travel books.  Oh, and any book about shelter pets.   I got one book about flycatchers and another book in which celebrities pose with their adopted shelter pets. I had a Subway ham sandwich and baked chips for lunch.

Tuesday night I walked in the curious store called Dirt Cheap.  This store stocks salvage wares that sometimes look a bit like they fell off trailers. Some day I will buy something fun there, but not Tuesday night. We dined on chicken, squash and sweet potato.

Today the weather turned better. At lunch, I walked in Breckinridge Park. I saw lots of fun birds. After work, I walked on the Chisholm Trail while listening to a podcast.

I had oatmeal and blueberries for breakfast, soft chicken tacos for lunch, and ravioli for dinner.

Today brought word of a terrible school shooting in Florida. Someday changes will be made, but I do not know when.

We watched an episode of the PBS series 'Nova" about Dunkirk, and now we are watching the 1933 version of "Little Women".
