On Saturday I went to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum with a co-worker friend of mine and it was lovely! Flowers, trees, hummingbirds, butterflies, fresh air, a nice stroll, and a Gila Monster!
We had delicious Mexican lunch and then we went home. It was a wonderful day!
Sunday, I took Gladys on the easy Sunday hike. We got to see a momma owl in her nest! We were all very excited about that.
Then I came home and I took away the pump to the pool and cleaned the filters. By myself. For the first time. This did, however, entail me texting the owner of the pool and a old friend of mine and they reassured me I was not about to break things. So I forged ahead and got it all done. One thing I noticed was that I was able to lift the filter cartridges out of the pump much easier this time around. Because I have muscles now!
Then I came inside and got rid of 14 more items, bringing my total of items purged to 171!!
I finished Sunday by going out to dinner with my friend Wendy, who I just do not get to spend time with enough. So that was a lovely way to finish up an awesome weekend!
