Spring is winning over winter.
Yes, that's my shadow in the corner. I was outside!
We had two warm afternoons, mid 60's! Tom was outside pruning the maple tree. This was on Friday. On Thursday he attended Irene's track meet for two of her four events.
I only have videos of her this week so found a photo from last year of her in action. She is continuing her winning ways. Irene started the meet by running the second leg of the 4X200, where running second she made up a huge deficit from her first teammate, pulled even and allowed her team to win that event. Then she ran and won the 100m hurdles. Then she ran and won the 300m hurdles. Then she ran a leg of the 4x400 m relay which her team won! She was a star!
Saturday afternoon found Tom and Irene at the stadium for a Sounders soccer match.I got to see them off and then watched on TV. The Sounders didn't win, but the didn't lose either, battling the top team from last year to a 0-0 draw. They played on 65 degree sunshine, a beautiful day in Seattle.
When Tom got home he found me sitting on the patio in the sunshine and suggested I walk out with him to get the mail. It's a 150 foot packed gravel driveway. I did it!
Last night I developed a new sharp pain, so I am laying off somewhat today. We will go to see the surgeon tomorrow for my first post-op appointment. I hope everything is OK. I prefer winning to setbacks.
