mallard, yogurt, world series

Today I went to a service at the church to which we belong. The sermon centered on the parable of the Good Samaritan, one of my favorites.
I often think that if church had more of the Golden Rule and more of the Good Samaritan, and less of lots of others things, that would be a good thing.

For various reasons I am still taking things a bit easy. I did go to Weight Watchers, where, not surprisingly, I had lost 3.2 pounds. A "soft food" regimen will do that for one. It is hard to complain about a temporary eating program that revolves around yogurt, oatmeal, scrambled eggs and soft frozen yogurt. I have some minor medical thing tomorrow, for which preparations too dreary to repeat required me to be mostly a homebody today.

I did take a walk around Glendover Pond. I liked the mallards, like this fellow:

I also saw two killdeer, a blue jay and a mockingbird in a tree squabbling about territory, a couple of grackles hunting for grass seeds, and park geese.

Later, I took a bicycle ride, but kept it to 20 low-stress minutes when my gums advised me that my blood was flowing through them, causing them to smart just a tad.

This afternoon I watched the local football team play and this evening we alternated between the local team's victory in the World Series
and "The Good Wife".
