I know it's been awhile. Since my last post, I was down with a virus for a week before we left on vacation. Then hubby and I were touring Seattle and the surrounding area for nine days. We had a great time and I plan to post some pictures soon.
This week I've been busy helping my son's family as they now deal with the virus; doing laundry; grocery shopping; meal planning and preparing; and working out more. While on vacation, hubby and I averaged five miles of walking everyday and I felt much stronger as a result. So I've been working on keeping up that pace, walking when not at the gym for a 50+ class. So far so good. Currently I'm at 8,986 daily steps for the week.
Thankfully, we've had fall temperatures all week, making neighborhood walks much more enjoyable. Tomorrow the entire family's going to the Best of Missouri Market at the Missouri Botanical Garden and the weather should be perfect, mid-60s. As long as the rain is minimal, it'll be a fun day filled with photo opportunities with all three grandchildren.
In the meantime, I had to share this photo my daughter took today of Reya eying her first stuffed pumpkin. At 10 weeks, Reya's healthy and strong, and cuter everyday. We are blessed!
