A Walk in the Woods

I like walking in the evening except when there are mosquitoes and/or gnats. DH and I took a nice walk at Cane Creek Park, but starting at the Rec Center and heading the most level way, there were so many gnats that when we got home I took a shower to make sure they were out of my hair.  ICK. We only did a mile because those things were so annoying. Glad we didn't try to make it all around the lake because I'm sure it would have gotten worse.

Glued to the TV

Well, no, not really. My kids swear by DVR. I prefer On Demand. And it certainly has been getting interesting. You see, DH and I have gotten addicted to Detroit 1-8-7 over the weekend. We were just looking for something different to watch and we tried it. Of course having ties to the Detroit area helps. As transplanted Michiganders, it can be fun to watch a series about Detroit homicide cops and see it the way non Michiganders might see it.

The really freaky thing is that the On Demand commercials are for the HD version of Beauty and the Beast and the just-released Secretariat. A little Disney pick-me-up between murders? And those are the only commercials they show. The same ones twice in each break throughout the whole show. Because we just saw last week's episode, it means we have to watch one more episode On Demand with those totally inappropriate commercials. Gah!
