Was 35° this morning. I must have gotten up too fast when I got out of bed to feed Hiker and let her go out to potty because I got a little dizzy. Decided to just go back to bed for awhile, even though Hiker kept bothering me to go for a walk. Finally got up around 8:00 and had a bowl of cereal then put Hiker in the car and went to get my lotto tickets and then went to the post office. I had written some donation checks that I wanted to get out before the end of the year. I had the car radio on and they were playing Christmas songs and I started thinking about Ben and I started crying and I cried all of the way to the post office and all the way back home. When we got home, I took Hiker out for a 1 mile walk. Also played ball with her in the yard for about 15 minutes. Put my sheets and towels into the washer and the settled down to check my computer and watch some TV. Looking forward to my brother Keith coming tomorrow to visit with me until Thursday. Decided to vacuum my carpet and could not believe all of the Hiker hair in the vacuum. It was so beautiful outside this afternoon, decided to take a 2 mile walk with Hiker. Have not done 2 miles for awhile. Saw some kids out in the dry river bed with a new metal detector (probably a Christmas gift). It reminded me of my mom and dad because my dad was one of the founders of The Metal Detector's Club at Lockheed back in the 1970's. He and my mom used to go out with their detectors every weekend. I still have my mom's detector. Would you believe that it got up to 77° here today? Just put my little ham and my cheesy potato casserole into the oven. Dinner should be ready in about an hour.
