322: Gone GnomingPosted: August 11, 2011
I was up bright and early this today, watching the sunrise through the morning mist. The pond was creating its own cloud system, the warm water reacting with the cool (in the 50s) air. Last night we had, as they say, great sleeping weather.
Today I had the pleasure of hunting for gnomes at the Holden Arboretum. When we finished there, we had a picnic lunch near Lake Erie and then went for a bike ride. I have spent almost the entire day outside. It was the perfect day for it. Clear, blue sky, lovely and moderate temperature (low to mid 70s), with a fresh breeze keeping everything cool and comfortable.
I walked about 2 miles. Biked about 4 miles. We would like to have biked more, but it turned out part of the bike route was on a major road with no lake view so we skipped that part of it.
This will have to be a short and quick post. We picked up our CSA box of veggies today and I need to do something with some of them. I see a big salad in our immediate future (dinner tonight) as well as some grilled veggies. I’m also going to make a bean and barley salad to meet our protein and grain requirements for the day.
More about my Gnoming Adventures tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by to visit me here in the Bogs. 🙂
