Our grandson Steven is coming to visit for the day. I'm looking forward to it.

For a change, my day isn't "scheduled" with prepping a house for sale or some other task I don't relish doing.

It's lovely here today and Glenn bought me an early birthday present. It's a fantastic platform hammock and I think I'm going to take my current book I'm reading and head out to some comfort in the hammock under the redbud tree in the back yard. Here's what the hammock looks like. Best of all, when the hammock isn't in use, if folds up vertically to be out of the way.

I'm relaxing before I head out the door and deliver some tax returns and bring a bunch of tax returns to the governments.

I just woke up after a nice nap (unfortunately slept through DH going to work though ). This morning I went to the pool to do my water walking and started out counting my lengths (I only do 8 right now ) but as I was starting number 4, the lady in the lane next to me said hi. We got talking and all of a sudden I realized I had stopped counting. I think I did 12 but it could have been more! Oops! Oh well, the only side effect so far is I had to take a nap, but don't feel extra stiff or sore, so I guess I didn't to any harm. Glad we have a week off of the program so I don't need to report this tomorrow to my physio!

I just got home from the gym. I went to a aqua chi class. A year ago I used to go 3 times a week. Really contemplated about starting it back up. I sat in the car for 20 minutes before I got the gumption to go in. Glad I did. The water helps my knees considerably.

Kicking back and watching Diner's, Drive-Ins and Dives with Glenn. Omigosh! I'm so glad we have already eaten dinner and I soooooo wish we had "Smell-O-Vision." Well, maybe I don't.

Debating what to do with the 4 lbs of strawberries DH proudly brought home yesterday. I'm thinking freezer jam, but will need to get the right kind of pectin as I want to use agave syrup instead of sugar. They aren't that good, and since we'll be leaving for a few days, I need to do something with them before they go bad. May just freeze them for smoothies.
