Started out breakfast with eggs made by Chris again…creamy and delicious – AND this time I made him show me the actual process! I’d tell you about it…but I think the originator of the recipe would do a better job.
Anyway! Breakfast was eggs, and immediately after I grabbed my camera and went for a little walk around the lake area. The other day Chris and I got up and went jogging, and I got upset because there was a beautiful fog hanging around the surface of the water that I didn’t get to photograph. This morning was a little similar, and I was not going to miss it. I even got lucky, and there was a heron hanging around.
…I wish I had a more powerful lens! I would have loved to zoom in closer on this beautiful creature, but this is as close as it gets for me. I couldn’t even physically get closer; I’ve decided that I must sound like a bear when walking down the path, because this bird alerted to me long before I got even this close. Soon as I snapped this shot I moved to attempt a different position…and off it flew. Oh well. I am actually pretty ok with this, I LOVE how I was able to frame the bird in the leaves! As usually technically it’s NOT a great photo…but I still really love how it came out.
Here’s one more from my lake walk – I couldn’t resist the sun coming through the trees onto the path:
A little later was snack time – a yummy banana!
And then went and had lunch with Chris. We just ate in my car in the parking lot of his work so he could stay close should a computer blow up or something (he’s an IT administrator for a medical office, and there has been a few issues lately.).
Got back to his house, and made some zucchini bread (gluten-free!) with the GIANT MONSTER zucchini that came from his mother’s garden. The thing was longer then my forearm…thicker too!
When the bread came out of the oven it smelled so good…I HAD to get out of the house or risk eating it all. So I took the little dog and out for a walk around the lake we went.
Of course once we got back into the house the call of the fresh-made zucchini bread was just to strong and a piece was eaten for ‘taste-testing’ reasons.
Chris Mom had gone out shopping, and when she came back she had this with her:
A handful of them later and it was decided that yes, they DO taste like a NY Ruben sandwich. Which I was tasting still hours later. Ugh.
Dinner was, to start, a bit of salad and a half a corn on the cob. No butter on the corn, just a little salt. The salad was one of those pre-prepared bagged ones where everything is included. I think this is the Endless Summer bag…and it is SO very good. Love it. There was no butter put on my corn, just a little bit (VERY little bit) of salt.
Not a very appetizing photo…I totally failed. It was good, and that was all I could do before pretty much shoving the rest of it in my mouth. Appologies!
Later on there was fitness-video doing. Barry’s Boot Camp, the arms and upper body workout. Here’s what that looked like for me:
I need to work on being better about my active minutes. I want to try shooting for something like an hour overall each day. There is a gym locally that I’m thinking of getting some day passes for, just to see how I like it. They offer a few different fitness classes, as well as a nutritionist and personal trainer. I think it would be handy to see what advice could be offered by the trainer for the areas I really want to work on, and I am very interested in taking a beginner yoga class. Their yoga I classes happen on Tuesday mornings, but I chickened out on doing it yesterday. I’m hoping to be able to build my courage and try to really psych myself up to go for the next coming class.
Anyone out there do yoga? If you do, what things should I have with me to be able to participate in this class? Do I need to bring my own mat or anything, do you think?
