A very good day

IMG_2171Did I mention this birthday present from Katherine?  When she was in town we went for a walk and I was going to buy a season parking pass and instead she bought it for my birthday.  Then best part of having the season parking pass is its more likely that we will go there.

Which brings me to this morning.  We were going to go to the gym as we were both needing some exercise but instead we went to El Dorado nature park and took the two-mile loop.  It was pretty early in the day so it wasn’t too crowded.  Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Tri Colored Heron along with lots of ducks were there for our walk.  We also saw squirrels, turtles and a rabbit.

A day of grocery shopping and errands then grading papers (not me) and grilling veggies and salmon rounded out the day.  It was a very good day.

A good day was needed!  Yesterday we working on outlets and light switches all day. We got the circuit in the kitchen fixed and the refrigerator is back on again.  We also finished all the outlets in all three bedrooms.  We had a snafu at the very end and the power in the hall and one shared wall between the bedrooms was out.  We know it is one set of switches that is for the lights, fan and a plug.  But we just couldn’t get it and may need a different type of switch.  As we worked we would finish a set or a room and turn the power back on and check every plug and switch.  Se we are sure were things broke down and will start there again next week.  It was a fulfilling and satisfying and then completely frustrating day!
