Having funPosted: April 21, 2009 Filed under: festivals, food, Fun!, Spring, travel Leave a comment
After a brief bout of tummy troubles, I seem to be back to normal. I’m not sure what hit me. Probably too much food. I’ve been on the Healthy Living Path for so long that all this rich food might be wreaking some havoc on my body.
I’m really enjoying New Orleans. I went on a walk about the French Quarter for a few hours today just to take a bunch of photos. I also checked out the riverfront area to see the Mississippi and to walk along the Moonwalk. M and I were out there on Saturday evening during the French Quarter Fest, but it was so jammed with people that I couldn’t really get a good idea of what it looked like. Plus I was busy people watching and listening to music.
The weather is warming up again. It’s sunny and in the 80’s with the humidity making a comeback after yesterday’s cool down. I think late afternoons are going to be rest periods for me from here on out. I’m not used to this kind of heat. A good example: Saturday evening when we were walking along the riverfront area, I heard a mother say to her children, “Come on. Let’s go. It’s gettin cold out here.” I was sweating something fierce from both the heat and the humidity. The children didn’t want to leave and she shooed them on a little further by saying, “I didn’t bring jackets for ya’all and I don’t want you gettin sick. Let’s go.”
It was near 80 degrees. Windy and cloudy, but still. Close to 80 At least mid to upper 70’s. I know it’s crazy, but anything over 70 seems like a major heatwave to me.
Hopefully M and I will get to go out and have some fun and dinner this evening. Because I was experiencing those tummy troubles, I didn’t feel like eating dinner. Poor M didn’t get much of a dinner either. A slice of pizza we picked up on our way back to the hotel when I decided I couldn’t eat and needed to get back, and some stuff from the vending machine when that proved to be not enough.
