adulthood isn't a reqard for being a go

Exercise and getting out

When I went outside to get the mail (too late this afternoon), the birds were singing, the temperature was warm and nice and it was a beautiful day. I knew I had to spend as much time as possible outside.

First, I walked part of the way around Lady Bird LakeTown Lake. The Parks and Rec site says I did 6.9 miles going from Mopac to I-35 and back, which is pretty decent. Also stopped in at the Mexican American Cultural Center since it was along there and I'd never seen it before. The Gallery had a display of absolutely incomprehensible art (except for 2 pieces, that looked like actual things). Still, the water fountain was critical at that point and I know I'll never go again with the company I keep.
Sometime I'll have to come prepared (and a bit earlier in the day), bring some water and do the full 10.1 miles to Longhorn Dam.

Since then, I went to Half-Price Books and picked up #11 in the Ramage series (still haven't found book 4, dammit) as well as an armload of Loretta Chase novels. jazz007 like the one she has, sarahtales likes them, and likes them too. Can't be bad.

Now I'm at Epoch chilling with soupwithafork and having a good time before going home for dinner.
