2. We took Gus with us. He loves riding in the truck and hanging out with his food people. I didn't get a picture, so this is Gus last summer.
3. Each year I go through my pictures for the year and make a photo book. This is what I give my kids for their birthdays each year. I finally finished choosing pictures and ordered my 2016 book last week. It came yesterday. I tried a new company called Mixbook and am pleased with the result. Below is the cover. I decided on the soft cover instead of hardback since it was cheaper. Now I'm kind of wishing I had paid the extra.
4.Since it is winter and neither of us likes the cold weather, we decided to get a treadmill. Now I've seen how they often become clothes hangers, but we have vowed not to let that happen. So we have now been using it for 2 days.
I have compared walking outside to walking on the treadmill and have found one huge drawback. When one walks for 30 minutes outside, one must turn around and walk back home. When walking on the treadmill, the chair is within eyesight and easy walking distance from the treadmill. This might be a problem.
5. I retired at the end of July 2016. Having worked for so many years, I am used to structure and now I have none. Up until now, I have found plenty to do and motivation to keep busy. Perhaps it is because of the time of year, it's too cold to do much outside, anyway boredom has set in. I think I need to make a schedule.
Tomorrow we are going to watch granddaughter play in the All State Band. She plays clarinet. Very proud grandma here. She may or may not be in this picture. It's a little difficult to tell them apart.
