In the morning I did my exercises while Tom got the garage set up for wreath making later in the day. We watched a little of the parade and then were pulled upstairs to our office to try some more stuff on our new laptop. Actually I did that while Tom worked on saving photos and files from our old desktop to an external hard drive.
I apparently was successful yesterday in setting up iCloud and connecting my iPhone, because photos began arriving on my laptop today! We're going to have to get technical support to figure out the email mess, but I am actually posting this blog from my new laptop, using the photos in the photo storage! Yay!
Jake came by a little after noon to pick up his pie before setting off for the Oregon coast. Then we left for our restaurant dinner. It was good!
We had a salad buffet, then the turkey/stuffing/gravy main course, then the dessert buffet, all for just $20.00 each. This is a small neighborhood family restaurant where we know much of the staff because we eat there every Friday morning.
We left there stuffed, and then went for a walk at the nearby DesMoines Marina and DesMoines Creek trail.
We could see Mt Rainier over the marina. It was cold, but very clear.
There were lots of ducks afloat.
I love how our shadow looks like two more people on another bridge.
We walked about two miles all together. That was enough to settle our dinner.
We are only about three weeks till solstice, so the sun never gets very high. This was about 3:30.
After we got home we got busy in the garage making wreaths.
I designed and made the bundles and Tom attached them to the wire frame.
Here's ours. We made one for Jake too. We'll get one made for Jill in the next few days, and I'll put a few embellishments on ours.
Now I'm playing with my new laptop a bit more . When I hit "publish" it will be time to pack it in for the day and go watch some TV. We have some shows recorded and more to explore on Netflix.
It was a good day.
