cold but windless

So many times in north Texas the better predictor is not "tell me the temperature" but instead "tell me about the wind speed." Saturday had been a goodish bit above freezing, but felt nightmarish because of winds over 32 kilometers/hour. Today the weather was a bit below freezing at morning's outset, but very pleasant due to calmer winds.

I walked first thing in the morning om the Hoblitzelle Trail. I was down 4/10ths of a pound at my WW meeting. After WW, I walked in Shawnee Park in Plano. Then I attended church. In the afternoon, I read the book I am very much enjoying, Edward Thomas' "Beautiful Wales."  He appears to subscribe to my own view that famous attractions are less important than the experience of a less touristy but more authentic bit of unnoticed countryside.

I walked in Glendover Park and Green Park in the afternoon. I listened to the NFC football playoff game on a portable radio as  I walked in Green Park. We dined tonight on home-made pizza, and watched "Victoria" on PBS.
