A Day Out Sure Beats A Day In

I dropped the kids off at a neighbor's house today to play and then went for a little walk before heading home. It was 18° with a nice stiff wind and a few snowflakes in the air but it was still nice enough to stay out for a bit.

I walked the neighborhood and took a look at our retention pond to make sure that there are no signs of goose nests and to see what kind of work we'd be responsible for later this year. Aside from some cleanup the pond looks good. I even found a small bass (dead unfortunately) on the water's edge. I don't know where he came from or how he got in our pond but I'm happy with any aquatic life that decides to visit our little body of water.

There wasn't anything else of note out there but hearing the sounds and smelling the smells and seeing the sights was a welcome break from the recent glut of days spent working in front of the computer.

See you tomorrow,
