green little review

Poem for Monday and Washingtonian Lake Wildlife

Sunday was just as lovely as Saturday in terms of the weather -- a bit overcast but slightly warmer, making it a perfect day to be outdoors -- but Adam had a lot of homework, so instead of hiking on Sugarloaf Mountain as we originally thought we might do, we contented ourselves with a walk around the lake at the Rio complex before a necessary unexciting shopping trip to Target etc. We are now the proud owners of a new bath mat -- our old one having unraveled in the washing machine -- and Deathly Hallows Part II on DVD to complete the set (will have to watch all the extras online, I am not switching to Blu-Ray at this late date).

It's been a fairly quiet evening after the Redskins and Ravens both embarrassed themselves against the Dolphins and Seahawks respectively -- the Eagles lost too, so I'm not bothered, but now the dragging Jets-Patriots game is on and I only got a short break from football for Once Upon a Time and wish I'd insisted on catching up on Merlin. At least they're not going on about Paterno and Penn State today. Here are a few photos from around Washingtonian Lake, where we saw a cormorant -- quite unusual there -- as well as the usual ducks, geese, and songbirds:
