The Evening After

So today had a bit less staying around the house.
Because it was SUNNY!

We started out about 10 AMish (Carl noted the time, I did not.)
Dropped a movie off at the video store (wouldn’t be a walk without an errand).
Tried to get on the sunny side of the street, as there was still frost around.
Walked an extra block in the shade to avoid one of the more odoriferous folks that habitat our streets.
[Honestly, I do not dislike this person, always polite and quiet, but he reeks.][[Maybe the cold air would have dampened the odor, but we still waited the extra block.]
Over the freeway, and up the hill, into the neighborhoods we went. Zig-zagged our way down to the north end of Lake Union, and across the Fremont Bridge. Followed the Lake Union (Cheshiahud trail) trail along Westlake, through the new South Lake Union Park, past the center for wooden boats, restaurant and yacht sales row (sort of like an upscale auto row), and onto the road that follows close on the eastern shore of Lake Union. Finally back to Eastlake Avenue to cross the University Bridge (no Occupy Seattle protesters in sight). Up Roosevelt to 45th. We did a little job to avoid walking where we had before (only doubled on one block). Home again.

Settled in to check out the end of a football game and browse the paper. Looked at the ads for all of the sales that had since ended.

Then time for a movie. This time it was Intolerable Cruelty starring George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones. A Coen brothers movie. This was a funny one. Moved along, and kept us laughing. A good flick to rest our legs.

Dinner is in the oven now. Turkey casserole.

Total mileage today – 9.5 miles.
Money spent. $0 on the Black Friday sales, but a few $$ on groceries (yogurt, bananas, etc.).

    Wonderful day for a walk–but it was COLD this morning. There was ice on the windshields of the cars when I went outside at 9. I like George Clooney!! And I loved that other Coen brothers movie he was in–Brother Where art thou? (?) I didn’t expect to, but I did.

      I agree “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” is a great movie. I tend to like most of the Coen brother movies, although they can get a bit violent at times. “The Big Lebowski” with Jeff Bridges is a family favorite.
