Scenes from my Saturday
I went for my normal Saturday walk with my walking buddy and her doggies today. We did about 3.5 miles today (short walk) and chose a different venue. We love to choose different places to walk and are finding some really pretty locales nearby. This time I brought my camera, which I’m going to do more often.
We walked along this river up in Everett, WA. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and a light breeze blew to keep us cool as we walked at quite a clip.
I seem to have this thing for park benches. Not sleeping on them, though.
Caught this boat coming up the river. Love the turquoise color of the hull against the green of the river.
This picture doesn’t do this view justice. It really was far prettier in person and in the fall we’ll go back to see how the vegetation turns colors. My friend described the water color as camouflage green.
After walking, I met my mom and our friend who was visiting from Portland and we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Have you ever looked at their nutrition guide? Quite eye opening, even just for a seemingly “healthy salad” that calculates out at 11 points! Man. I chose the Luau salad with dressing on the side for 467 calories or so. They don’t provide the fiber info, so it’s hard to tell for sure how many points. But after my workout two days in a row, I figure I was good with that choice. (Friday morning I had gone for a 4 mile walk, with one mile of that running without stopping!)
After lunch, we took our friend to the train station as she had to head home. Then I dropped mom off and headed over to my daughter’s house to see the boys. I had picked up a “surprise” for Cayden that his mommy found on Craigslist.
She found a Woody doll, Jessie, and another Buzz Lightyear doll for him. He was so tickled about this. He’d been asking for them for a LONG time.
I hung around for a bit and watched Cayden swim in their pool.
Man he looks like his mom. I wish I had a scanner to scan a picture I have of her at the same age.
Cindy put up this tent that she got when Elise was a baby, and Evan had so much fun playing peekaboo with me in it.
Look at those cute cheeks!
Someone confiscated my water bottle.
After all this, a full day, Lily and I came home and are resting up for another busy day in the sun tomorrow. Or maybe just a resting day in the sun. Have to take advantage of it when it’s here.
Happy Saturday folks.
