Today was such a peaceful day.
I was a juror!!
So I went home and enjoyed the gorgeous day we had.
I worked really hard at one point in the beginning of summer to prep the garden area so I could grow enough food to save some money on groceries.
The weather was perfect today. About 80 degrees maybe, which is just perfect for sitting outside on your recently painted deck.
Today was a good day to clear out some hoodlums who have been hanging about.
I love this tree just off my deck:
If you look closely, you can see that the leaves actually grow right out of the limbs, not just off the branches. I love it. There's also a birds nest (on the left side), but we didn't notice it until after it had been vacated.
I had some company from the rebel cat, Whiskers, who really wants to be an outdoors cat, but isn't trustworthy enough to be given the privilege. And he refuses to move when we put the harness and leash on him, so he's always kept jailed in the house.
Unless I forget to close the screen door and he just suddenly appears.
Once things were back in their place on the deck, it was time for dinner:
Ginger chicken stir fry. LOVE this.
And then it was time to work off that delicious dinner.
I'm busting ass on the treadmill this week trying to make my goal for the month. I was just a little behind schedule and thought I would have to kick it up a notch the last two weeks. But then I got sick last week and when I climbed out of the infirmary, I suddenly found myself way behind. The blisters on my heels might kill me tonight. If you don't hear from me again - blame the blisters (or maybe the revenge of the spiders).
