8:24 am - PDST - Saturday - 49º F, humidity 71%, wind 3 mph out of the east......the wind is gone and we have clear blue skies. Forecast high for Saturday is 71º F.
After Thursday's 'event filled day' it was good to have an uneventful day Friday......the wind we fought all the way from Ventura brought with it a very chilly morning requiring me to wear a hoodie sweatshirt, my previously owned Nike sports pants, and slippers to go outside......
......and this is what outside looks like here at the delightful Lompoc Elks Lodge.......
.......we chose a table just inside one of the open roll up doors as it was a little breezy, and then sat down to wait for our server. As is often the case with a new restaurant the service was quite slow, and based on the Yelp reviews I have read for Solvang Brewing Company (owner of 'Hoptions' Taproom and Eatery) this is a problem being experienced by most of their customers. We're retired and as long as we have a brew sitting in front of us and alfresco dining we're happy to put our 'patience in our pockets' as long as the brews and the food are very good, and they are. For those who still occupy the 'workaday' world we have left behind it is a big issue, and I hope they get it.....the service......ironed out soon! We ordered two appetizers......beer battered onion rings, and chicken strips with french fries.....the portions were enormous.....way more than we needed, so we ended up getting a 'doggy box' to take the rest home.
We were home just after 3 pm with smiles on our faces.......now it was time to do something we had not yet done Friday......do our daily workouts, and we did. I'm glad we are both working hard to lose the unwanted weight and inches, because it is so much easier to be consistent when someone else is pushing you to be so.....sometimes it's me pushing TLE, and some days it's the other way around.....it's all good and we are making great progress because of that.
So nice to be able to use the term 'uneventful' to describe our Friday......thanks for stopping by!
