We woke this morning to a clear blue sky. By 8:45 we were out the door to begin our exercise walk.
We have a 3.25 mile route along neighborhood streets and into a small neighborhood park. We can make it longer by adding loops in the park. As we walk be both listen to something on our devices. I usually listen to a news/talk radio station on my iPod. But yesterday at 11:00 in the morning I stopped listening to the news. I couldn't stand another news report beginning with "Donald Trump". In fact, from now on I will just refer to him as DT. Ugh!
This winter my old iPod Nano wore out and I replaced it, but I was never able to get my iTunes program on my desktop computer to communicate well with my new device. Much of my music was missing, most noticeably my Beatles and Beach Boys tunes. I have tried several times and given up. Yesterday I decided to devote the afternoon to figuring it out. It took about an hour, but I did it!
And so this morning there as a bit more spring in my step as I bounced along to the beat of the Beach Boys!
Yes, indeed, the Sounds of Summer!
We had company in the park. A park maintenance man was mowing. A homeless man was sleeping in his car in the parking lot. Two others were cooking their breakfast in the picnic shelter. An older woman we see often was walking her big, blond, beautiful, bushy-tailed dog, and a young mother was with her young child who was riding joyously on his tiny bike.
Good, good, good, good vibrations!
Back at home, I stomped down mole runs so Tom could mow our lawn. Then I picked new bouquets of sweet peas for the house, as overhead in the blue sky Blue Angles performance jets roared as they took off and landed at Boeing field, giving lucky passengers the ride of their lives. It's SeaFair week in Seattle. More about that in a later post.
My sister Laurie gave me this little old figurine for my birthday when I attended her birthday party. She gave our sister Ilene one too, for August. We are the girls of summer. My birth date is July 17, Laurie's is July 20, and Ilene's is August 3. We have a brother in there too. Don was born July 21st.
This is Ruby, with her little bouquet of birthstone centered flowers.
She looks quite lovely with her own little bouquet of sweet peas.
Sending good vibrations to you all!
