Sunday check in

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Well yesterday hubby cut down a number of trees around the property and bucked them up for firewood. I loaded 8 wheelbarrows of firewood and unloaded them on the wood pile.

That was AFTER I spent 30 minutes with the weedeater in the yard. . . . and I was already sore from working out with Kathy Smith on Friday.

I am still absolutely a-MAY-zed at how much physical activity I can do now!

Then we took a 2 hour ride over towards the coast to try out a little hole-in-the-wall burger joint that has been going for as long as we can remember - at least 35 years! Well, I didn't have to worry about going over on my calories because there wasn't much on the sandwich and the whole wheat bread was horrific. I guess it must have been the 'regular' cook's day off! I don't know how they've stayed in business and people still stop there! Maybe because they serve ice cream cones ? ? ? ? (which I did NOT have) Well, now we can check that place off our list!

We had some really strong winds blow in around noon, and then some really dark storm clouds rolled in . . . but we decided to go for a ride anyway. We rode for 3 hours and a couple of times I thought we were really gonna get dumped on, but thankfully the rain was all around us and we never got a drop of rain.

Now that we're home, I do hope we get some measurable rain . . . but no lightening please! (We're going to have a bad fire season since it's already terribly dry!)

How was your weekend????

    We haven't had much rain here either, but I am enjoying the beautiful spring weather. emoticon

    Sounds fun! Sorry the burger was bad. Amazing how long a place can last based on an old reputation and people's good memories.

    Nice riding time and one less place to stress about what to eat. A win-win situation. Hope you get that much needed rain!

    Sounds like you had quite a workout! Sometimes those little burger places do have good food, just not that one, huh? Hope you get some rain. All we had last week was rain, so we are hoping for none the next couple days. We need to get our garden planted. Have a great week
