If you go walking at the Domain on a Friday evening, you can experience several things. You can stop and admire the red roses. You can catch a rock band playing on the Great Lawn stage. Drop in at Flaming Pizza and build your own pizza creation. Make friends with a grackle who really just wants to taste a bit of your pizza. And as you walk back, you can catch the sun as it begins to set behind the power lines. Not too bad for a Friday evening.
A big “thank you” to the person who planted this rose bush in our community garden at work! It was so relaxing to admire the pink roses in action after our morning rains provided them with some water. 🙂
Some Sundays are just meant for rest. I think I am pushing a little too hard on the workouts, so my body just wanted total relaxation today. I did go out into the world this evening for some food and a late grocery store trip. Apparently, the local HEB is gearing up for Valentine’s Day. 🙂
Happy 3rd of July! I know, usually it is the 4th of July we celebrate for Independence Day, but this year we are celebrating both days thanks to the extra long weekend. There are fireworks shows on both nights in different cities surrounding the Austin area. I slept in this morning and then went to the Monument Cafe in Georgetown for a late lunch. Their food is always nice, but a stroll through their garden is one of my favorite things about this city.
