And then there was that.

Apparently, I am getting too old to party like it’s my birthday for a whole week. I barely survived 3 days. But what a fun three days it was! We tried restaraunts new to us and went to some favorites.  There was my semi-annual adult beverage, which…WOO!

I made it to the Botanical Gardens when stuff was in bloom. (There may have been a little too much blooming going on for ye old allergy meds to handle.) I would really like to cruise by during the summer and fall too. oh, and I almost walked out with the most adorable little Japanese Maple bonsai.

Can I just say, what a difference a few years and about 80 pounds makes? I was winded and done by the time we made it to the Japanese Garden last time. This time? We lapped that sucker a couple of times ( I think I finally saw it all) and then headed to a West 7th for lunch and more walking.

There also may have been some movie watching in the form of The Longest Ride. Thankfully, we saw it at a theater and there was no ugly crying. Because, well, we just don’t ugly cry in public.

On my actual birthday, he ran for fresh coffee and a blueberry muffin for me, but we ended up having steak for breakfast. I’ll have a nice treat tomorrow morning. Energy for Jiu jitsu. What!?! That’s my excuse!

I was going to knit for a few hours tonight, but got wrapped up in a book that was a present. It was a nice change from all of the going I did this weekend.

Did I mention that we also rode about 9 miles? We took it slow and adjusted  my bike as we went. Amazing what an extra inch will do for your ride.

Happy Monday y’all! Hope you had a great weekend!
