Almost every night if you asked me how I was feeling the response would be Exhausted. Usually, it’s exhausted and something. Most frequently exhausted and sick. Exhausted and depressed. But Monday was an exhausted but kind of day.
Exhausted but happy.
The sky was overcast but not so dark that it looked like it would be raining soon and the temperature had not reached the level of fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot. Baby girl and I ventured out to the botanical gardens for an early-ish morning stroll. (Thanks to a very generous gift from great-grandma Madelyn, we are now members so I am no longer dependent on the always overcrowded free hours on Wednesday and Saturday mornings!)
First, we saw a dinosaur!
Apparently, the botanical gardens has started some sort of Jurassic Park like dinosaur cloning program.
We saw droplets on freshly watered flowers:
By accident, I ended up in the Japanese garden:
We essentially walked the entire perimeter of the gardens which means I got a really good work out for a change! Lorelei had a really good time though:
Yes. She loves sticking her tongue out. What’s your point?
We napped in the afternoon, I planned a menu and then we (along with the help of my friend Desiree) hit up the holy trinity of stores: Whole Foods, Target and Trader Joe’s.
It was long day but I was happy.
