DH and I went to the mountains for a couple days.Left Tuesday and arrived to rain, lucky to get a walk in after dinner. Two gorgeous days yesterday and today. Yesterday hike a trail that is about 1 1/2 hours straight up. Lots of stopping and huffing and puffing. We do that trail once/year. Today hiked our favorite trail. It will only let me post 1 photo at a time. Came home this afternoon.

I tried something new this morning; Poolside Yoga. Good teacher, good class, but it was in a very hot, humid room around a therapy pool. I do NOT like being that hot so it won't be one I'll go to very often. I had my carpets cleaned yesterday, so went I go home from class, I started putting things in place, cleaning as I went along, so that is done for awhile. This afternoon, DS & fiance have invited us, her folks & two friends of theirs (also engaged) to go to an Open House for a new wedding venue that is opening in town. A perk of getting along really well with your future DIL is that you get invited to do some of the fun wedding 'stuff'!

Heidi: Congratulations!!!!!!!! So good to hear from you!
jo: Hot and humid are a terrible combination for exercise. I do what I can in the summer during the cooler part of the day.
Karen: Pretty picture! Looks like a great place to hike.
Ruth: Did your ds and future dil like the venue?
Hi All! Back from our beach trip. Had a fabulous time. It only rained on the 4th but stopped in the afternoon so we were able to enjoy the fireworks the town put on. Went swimming and walking every day. Ate and drank very well - probably a little too well. I'm staying away from the scales for awhile.
Edited to add: It's been raining on and off today. So needed! We haven't mowed in over 3 weeks. May do it this week depending if this rain makes it grow. It's 66 degrees and cloudy now and I'm loving it.

We had a crazy storm early this morning. Along with branches all over the yard, and a couple of my flower pots being tipped over and thrown to the ground (smashing the flowers within), it split the big tree by our deck almost in half and the whole top of the tree in splayed across the roof. Not good, we will have to get a hold of the insurance & tree removal people tomorrow.
Glad you had fun at the beach, Alice! The wedding venue was awesome. On the edge of our town was an old abandoned church camp right by the river in a beautiful setting. Some young entrepreneurs bought it. Razed some of the old buildings, restored several others, landscaped, build a brand new events building, and will be renting the place out for weddings, reunions etc. etc. They do all the set up, take-down, catering etc. etc. etc. all for an reasonable rate. The kids (and we all) loved it, and they booked a date: September 30, 2023!
