It's a beautiful morning here!  I plan on spending a relaxing day sitting in the sun, reading, and maybe going for a walk.  Do you have any big plans for the day?

I'm a day late but what the heck.

I spent a good part of the day (from around 1am or so until it was daylight and the cats started nagging for breakfast :D ) in the sewing room finalizing the packing up for Sewing Machine Geek Fest.  I put together 8 sets of fabric for a pincushion demo/class I'm giving, fished out fabric to use for a "tricks to make points meet" class I'm giving, and cut out fabrics for more blocks to a baby quilt I'm going to work on in our "sew in" on Friday night.  I can't remember if I posted blocks from that quilt on FB yet or not--probably not because I'm friends with the parents-to-be and don't want their baby shower pressie spoiled.

After that, I spent some time clearing out the backlog of things I've DVRed but not watched, did the laundry, mowed the front lawn, scrubbed the bathroom and kitchen floors, and organized the things I'll need for my kitchen cabinet painting project next week, and then toddled off to bed around 3pm

Haven't done a lot today.  I have a very busy, potentially very emotional week coming up so I'm trying to chill for a lot of the weekend.  Did some laundry and cleaning, made deviled eggs, am now snuggling with the kitty.  GAB just got back from vacation so I'm heading over there after dinner.

Sounds a lot like our trail.  Right now it goes (mostly paved, some parts on the streets) from one end of town to another. But there is a master plan that would connect it with a nearby lake (that already has trails) and the nearby tech park too.

This morning I took the dogs for a 3mi walk in the woods, ran 4mi on the beach, vacuumed the pool, took a quick dip in the ocean, put away laundry, and now I only plan to laze around the pool until its time to make dinner.

Evenually when they get it all done it will connect with the cities to the west, east and south of us and into Austin.  The beginning of the trail is almost exactly 1 mile from my house so I will always have that link on the road.  But it is residental so very little traffic.  On weekend mornings I am more lilkely to see other exercisers than cars.

"It's a beautiful morning here! I plan on spending a relaxing day sitting in the sun, reading, and maybe going for a walk. Do you have any big plans for the day?" --------- I did very little today other than answer a few emails and translating a short article on a church in Constantinople.

Well, I've already made breakfast (biscuits with butter and honey), taken The Dog and The DH on a 2.5 mile walk, gone grocery shopping and made lunch.

Next up is cleaning my room and putting away laundry.   Then I have to work for a couple hours. Then we'll hit the pool for a few hours.   We have grilled chicken breasts and grilled veggies on tap for dinner, followed by another walk.  We'll end the day with some tv.
