So today I was getting ready to get up and get ready to go for my daily walk. I got a text from a friend and he said that he was getting off of work at noon and if I could wait until 1 or 1:30, we'd walk on the Riverwalk trail. I said that would be fine as I haven't been down there to see it since the hurricane and flooding damage.
He eventually got here about 2 and we headed down. Well, we park and go across the bridge and everything looks okay. Then I noticed that it looks like the trail is blocked off a little further down. We walk to see what it is, and yes, it's blocked. They had a barrier up and it said 'this part of the trail is closed'. So, we turned and went the other way. The trail, which used to be one continuous trail is now divided into three! They have portions that are messed up, bridges washed out, etc. I hope they get it back to normal soon. The part we walked on isn't my favorite part, but at least I got to the trail!
It was nice out there, too! I came home and my steps were lacking. My friend didn't want to walk a lot since it was his first time in a while. I usually walk right at 6 miles. We only walked close to four. I pulled out my lawn mower to get part of the back yard done as the weeds are bad. (Still no significant grass! LOL!) The mower WOULD NOT start. I was getting frustrated. I figure it might just need some gas, but I didn't feel like driving to get some and risking car problems, so I pulled out the electric mower my friend got me as a backup some time back. That was a pain in the butt! lol . It started fine, that part was great. It was just that the mower is quite small so it only does a little patch at a time and I had to keep watching out for the cord. It isn't rechargeable. :p . So, I get a small part done and I think, that is all of that I'm going to do! I put that mower back in and was about to put the other one in when I decided to try it one more time.
Guess what started on the first try! Seriously! I decided since it started, I would go ahead and do the front. It isn't too bad yet, but it was starting to need mowing so I got that done. That helped quite a bit to add to my step count for today.
I came in and relaxed. I had to turn the air on for a bit to cool off! I worked on my puzzle and finished it! Yay! I went to turn it over to tape it and part of it fell apart. D'oh! I got it turned back over and re-did the parts that came out and it's now taped and hanging on my wall. The picture was so pretty I wanted to display it. Here is the completed puzzle:
Isn't that pretty! I will probably start the other one tomorrow or the next day. It all depends on how my day goes tomorrow if I start it or not. I need to pick up a few things at the grocery store, so I might just pick them up on my walk tomorrow . It isn't anything heavy or cold so picking it up on the way home won't be a problem. Now if my friend gets off early tomorrow and wants to walk, I'll have to get him to run me by there!
Oh, if you are wondering, I'm still writing every night for Camp NaNo! I have 8120 words! I'm almost half way there. I set a goal of 20,000 words for myself. I'm off to get today's part done. Good old Scrivener is helping me again!
