I had a lovely day today; Melissa and I went to lunch, the library, and the Chrysler Museum. Can you tell how happy being with her makes me?
This is one of the sculptures we saw; there was a whole series of them, showing the brain inside each one as well as the heart in this one. Interesting.
Gracie is enjoying her summer too; she gets up when I do, then promptly settles in for a nap.
She has the cutest face!
My hollyhock finally bloomed; I wish I had planted a few more, instead of just this one, but I was trying a few different plants out to see which ones did well enough to keep. I'd say this one is a winner, except Steve doesn't like it for some reason.
I took this picture on Monday from underneath my beach umbrella. This is the first summer I'm actually sitting under it and I quite enjoy it. I think I'm getting old.
I am walking 40 minutes every day, which was my summer goal, and today I walked for an hour in the morning and another 30 minutes after dinner. The temperature didn't go over 85 degrees today, probably because we had a big thunderstorm last night, so I opened all our windows and gave our AC unit a break. It's back on now though, partly because our neighborhood is so noisy at night and partly because I find it hard to sleep while sweating. Plus the temperature will be back in the nineties for the foreseeable future, which is too hot for me.
Can I just say how very much I love these lazy summer days?
