Another ‘what a day’ to write about. The House of Representatives has voted to impeach Donald Trump for insurrection leading to the violence last week at the Capitol, for the second time during his term, it now goes to the senate.  Information is coming out that several of the extremists who stormed the Capitol last week have been arrested and we are now hearing rumors that it could have been an inside job - meaning that some congress members are suspected of aiding it. The National Capitol and state capitols are gearing up with troops in place, expecting possible violence next week for the inauguration on the 20th.  The Trumpers still believe that the election was fraudulent and was stolen from them - the numbers don’t say that at all, he lost by a sizable number of votes. 

I tried a new recipe today, Butternut Squash and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole, doubled it up and took it to Ben and Jill for dinner. I think it was great, will be interesting to hear the family’s feedback. 

Frisco and I got a couple of good walks in this week, as temps have been back up above freezing and we have seen the sunshine a few days.  While walking a stretch of the River to River trail today, I stopped to chat with a man who gave me some information on the trails and also answered my question about what is going on a block away where I have seen some construction going on.  The good news is that the trail is going to connect right across the street behind the library and they are putting a tunnel under Robert Street which is a very busy 4-lane neighborhood street. Also, the construction is a new Hy-Vee going in on the property that was the Thousand Oaks Golf Course that was failing - the privately owned company sold the property recently.
