Been a while, eh?
I’m still walking and still keeping track. Just been too lazy to post about it. Without further ado:
- Total mileage for 2008: 886.737 miles
I had a couple of weeks where I took it easy (walked fewer miles), mostly because I haven’t been quite up to par lately.
The other day M was remarking that we haven’t seen the hawks around here lately. Lo and behold, two of them showed up this morning. I managed to catch one with the camera:
(Hawk in the elm tree.)
It’s not a great shot, but I took it through the living room window. A better lens would have helped, too. I’ve been wanting to buy a new lens for the camera for a while. However, the camera is having some technical difficulties that may mean it’s dying. If that’s the case, I’ll have to save up my pennies for a long while for a new camera. Let’s hope this one hangs on for a few months. Another year would be really nice.
I’ve been pondering NaBloPoMo. I kind of hate to miss it, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to post every day. If I can get a few posts ready to go ahead of time, I’ll do it.
Today’s view of the pond:
Don’t tell M I was taking photos of the geese instead of chasing them off.
what a cute little paddleboat!
