A touch of decadence.....

 8:09 am - Saturday - July 22nd - LPG&RVR - 66° F, humidity 33%, wind - mph out of the north....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 98° F.  On this date in Lakeside, MT (south of Kalispell) having lunch at Tamarack Brewing Company on the shores of Stoner Creek......5 out of 5 stars for us......↴

Just as we did Thursday we began our Friday with an out and back walk out to Jess Valley Road.....

3.4 mph

....once back from the walk we both poured cups of coffee and settled in to watch The Open.....all 12.5 hours of!  How much more decadent can we be?  Of course, there was the drive into Alturas to do our weekly shopping, which interrupted our decadent repose for a couple of hours.  Our first stop was at Rite Aid, then Rubio's Taqueria for our monthly Rubio's fix.  Once we had our orders (3 carne asada tacos for moi, and a chicken taco for TLE) we headed back to the city park to eat our lunch at a picnic table in the shade of a large weeping willow.  Those carne asada tacos are things of which dreams are made!

We then did a moderately big shopping to restock our pantry and fridge stores, then headed for home, and more decadent The Open viewing.  While TLE put away the groceries I busied myself with refinishing one last piece of wood trim left over from our floor is the trim piece which sits at the base of the shower entrance.  The piece was essentially 'blonde' in color and stood out like a sore thumb, so I removed it, sanded it down, then applied multiple coats of dark stain to help it blend in better....I think it came out well....

.....other than that I spent the balance of the afternoon watching The Open.  We capped off our day watching the USA women play Vietnam in the FIFA Women's World Cup match, which they won handily 3-0.

Thanks for stopping by!
