It was a pretty good week. I certainly started with good intentions… workouts on track, and food plan in check. And I did very well for several days so I am happy for that. We got in lots of walking this week,too, as our weather has been just glorious and the city is ablaze with blossoms and color. Spring really is the loveliest season where I live.
We have many many streets in the city core that are lined with cherry trees and plum trees… all just bursting with color. The only ‘snow’ I have seen is the petals from the cherry trees blowing around. Soon the ground will be solid pink with fallen petals.
On Friday we walked to Chinatown for lunch to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I thoroughly enjoyed a large bowl of Hot and Sour soup… mmmm.
Some other highlights from the week…
I went to an open house to check out the Spring line from Epicure Selections and came away with some new herb/spice mixes to sample. I really like their silicone bakeware and have a few pieces that I used regulary. I did order a couple of things, too, that I should get next week.
Since we moved into this area almost 3 years ago, I have become buddies with a little cat that lives on our walking/running route to the village. Whenever we pass her house I call out to her, and if she is outside she comes to me for a little head rub, and if she is asleep on her couch in the window, she lifts her head and watches as I wave to her. Silly, I know, but she is so sweet.
And the wind has been been just right for saling this week… enough to shake out the rags, but not so much that it is overpowering. It can really blow up along the Strait.
That freighter in the background is coming from China. Dwarfs the sailboat, even from a distance!
What was the highlight of your week? Anything special coming up?
