It’s been a beautiful weekend here, with the temperature hitting 22°C on Saturday afternoon, which drove me outside in a tank top and skirt to absorb some rays on the back deck.
Today it was less sunny, but still 18, and all five of us (Tai Chi Man, me and all three of our man-boys) went out, after a lunch of sandwiches and birthday cake, for a hike in nature with a wonderful view of the lake. (Ds1 turns 24 this week.)
We saw a huge bald eagle perched at the top of a dead-looking tree. And a chipmunk or two. It was a reasonably strenuous hike, about two hours long, and it felt very good to burn off some calories and get the heart and lungs working. It felt good, too, to stop at a coffee shop afterwards, and I only had a green tea rather than the calorific chai latte that I could have had.
Whilst out, I attached three little yarn doodles to posts along our route, just for fun. My family just rolled their eyes!
