Another day off.....

 7:05 am - Sunday - February 11th - GNHS - 47° F, humidity 55%, wind 5 mph out of the north by northwest....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 64° F.  On this date in 2013 TLE and rode our bikes to First Round Draft and Sports Bar near Stuart, FL.....

We actually had two advance bookings for Saturday.....two 2 hour rentals at 12 pm.  Since they were only two hour rentals TLE and I deferred to Hunter to handle them, and get the hours.  We, on the other hand, enjoyed another day off work.....nice!

We took our first 1 mile out and back walk around 9:30 am.  There was a little wind out of the northwest, but TLE sucked it up and walked anyway.  We averaged 3.5 mph over 18 minutes, burning around 175 caloric units.....

.....we watched the final 20 minutes (including 6 minutes of 'added time') of the Tottenham vs. Brighton & Hove Albion, and it was a thriller.  Tottenham had given up a penalty kick goal early in the first half, but had come back in the 2nd half to tie the game 1-1.  They entered the 6 minutes of 'added time'  still tied, and as the clock hit 5 minutes and 50 seconds of 'added time' they scored the winning goal.....a great come from behind victory for the home team!

TLE and I both got in our toning workouts again....I'm up to 40 pushups (of the modified variety), and 40 situps now....started at 20 and 20 on December 26th.  With nothing else to do we both read most of the day.  By the evening I had read around 65% of book four of Downward is a little longer than the first three.  Still a page turner!

Around 2:30 pm we took our second 1 mile out and back walk of the day averaging 3.4 mph this time, but burning another 175 caloric units.  The winds which greeted us in the morning had mostly dissipated by that time.  We did have to lower the 'red wall' on the dinning/game deck, along with our flag, but had them back up late afternoon.....

.....nothing else to report for Saturday, except we did watch some of the WM Phoenix Open (PGA Tour).

Our son (Chris) and The Amazing Rochelle (TAR) are spending the weekend boondocking in their 39', four slide, Fleetwood Class A diesel pusher over at Ocotillo Wells, so we're going to drive over there today (Sunday) to spend the day with them since we have no COA advance bookings, with Hunter available for any walkup business.

Thanks for stopping by!
