and it feels like June 1. What gives? No pool today, that's for sure. Went to the Y for my workout this a.m. after Matins. Great burn! Walked off 1100 calories in an hour's worth of walking at 20% incline at 4 mph. Then Cindi and I headed out for a bit of shopping and for lunch - El Maguey's, our favorite Mexican restaurant in Edwardsville. They have a dish called pollo feliz that we both love and invariably it's what we order. Also best salsa around. We got home and jumped on our bikes. Did about 8 miles but felt like a lot more - 1/2 of the way the wind was strongly blowing against us. Have I ever told you guys how much I LOVE our new bike trail???
Came home and began finishing up a birthday dinner now for Opa - he, Jo and Sandy will join us tonight to celebrate his 72nd birthday, a few days late. Cindi's had the beef marinating in barbeque sauce since last night (she throws it on the grill even though it's a roast; comes out fabulous!). She's also planning some creamed corn, a salad, and a french apple pie for the non-low carbers and Cindi and I have a coconut pie with almond crust (that almond crust is TASTY!). Then after dinner its off to see David and Anna in Willy Wonka at the University. Must be a great show - David said they've had standing ovations for the last two performances.
Pity we'll be back so late, because I'll bet it would be a great evening for a fire and enjoying our wine outside. Wonder if this very mild and wet summer portends anything for what we can expect this year with winter?
