Finished walking at 8:00 AM. Stretched at the basketball court until 8:15 AM. The morning walk started out cold, dark with lots of rabbits grazing at the field. The sunrise over the horizon was shielded by some low clouds. After the sun cleared the clouds, it showed its glory and warmed up the air. It was a cold morning and I was the only one out on the trail. The solitude allowed me to plan my day and the Art History class on Tuesday. Towards the end of the walk, the temperature was nice and warmed up. I worked up a good sweat. Dried up and changed to dry T-shirt. Found out from the secretary that there will not be any new incoming inmates for today. Showered at 9:00 AM. Went to sewing room to repair some pants and issue jackets to inmates.
