A Win/Win, Walking & Weather
For some reason on Tuesday of this week when it was 103 degrees outside, I decided to walk Gus down to the central library to pick up a book I had on hold, stopped by the Barrio taco truck parked at 1st Ave and 4th street for delicious soft crab tacos with watermelon gazpacho, then got us to the cool air conditioned haven of Macy's downtown to shop for a new swimsuit and make-up, and back home again along the river. Which I then had to follow up with a chilled glass or four of rose up on the roofdeck to recover. It was exhausting and I probably sweated out about 3 pounds but I'm glad I took advantage of the few real summer days we've had this strange weather week, since today and yesterday felt like fall and Wednesday felt like spring. It was prettymuch a perfect day, and G and I enjoyed it by walking along the river, lunching at Sea Salt, checking out the Minnehaha Falls, cruising in the convertible along a full Minnehaha creek (which makes me want to kayak down it again like we did a few years ago), then taking a dip in the outdoor pool at the Calhoun Beach Club. Lovely. And today is a bit chilly, perfect for staying inside and blogging about winning, walking and the weather.
