rainy day Sunday

Rain fell nearly all day today. I got a brief morning walk in before it got going good. Beatrice and I got half of a late afternoon walk done without rain, but the second half featured a steady rain. I used a towel to get her dry afterward. I am glad we keep a stock of older towels for this purpose.

I went to Weight Watchers at 9:30 and church at 11. I wore my light blue rain jacket. I took pictures of an American Kestrel in the rain. I ate a two piece meal of grilled chicken at a KFC, after the Denny's parking lot looked full. I worked
several hours this afternoon on a work matter.

This evening, I walked in Green Park. I was impressed by the birds who turned out in the cessation of the rain. My favorites were the twelve Chipping Sparrows.

For dinner I ate a navel orange, two apples, two roasted-then-microwaved chayote squash, a sandwich slim bun, a five baby Dutch microwaved potatoes, and a bag of sea salt hummus chips,

I watched "Grantchester" on PBS and snacked on litte snack mini-bars. i only got 8,000 steps today, when Sundays I aspire to 10,000 to 14,000.
