Back in the saddle….

LOCATION:  In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER:  Very nice.  High 76

STEPS:  11,555
CLASSES:  Chair yoga and 2 water aerobics

The holiday is over, and it is time to get back on my exercise routine. So, back in the saddle I go…..

The route I take on my morning walk goes near a large veterans’ cemetery.  Every evening, they play Taps on a bugle.  If the wind is in the right direction, we can hear it from our house.  This morning they were playing it as I walked;  there must have been an early AM funeral.

Water aerobics was chilly again.  I was the only one swimming.  Easy to social distance!

Then, Spanish class in the afternoon.  We pretended we were ordering Mexican food from a Spanish speaking waiter.   It was kind of fun. 

We were looking forward to a food truck that was coming to Retama Village – serving tacos, this evening.  We had signed up, along with 160 other people in our community.  When the truck arrived, a long line formed.  People were not social-distancing and some were not wearing masks, so we stayed away..  The tacos looked good…..

DINNER:  Meanwhile, I had chopped and sauteed some jalapeños and onions to go on the tacos.  So, when we ended up without tacos, I had to quickly improvise.  I added some black beans to the jalapeños/onions and thawed some Mexican rice.  Not too exciting, and we were disappointed about the food truck.  The idea is good – to help support local businesses.  Someone needs to coordinate the next one better, though.
