Here's a satellite view:
It could be like a smaller version of Seattle's Volunteer Park. I doubt it'll happen since it's only a few blocks from Forest Park.
My crudite habit is still going strong after all this time. Today, I realized it comes with a benefit. If you have a big baggie or container of cut-up vegetables all the time, you add fresh vegetables to your stock of pantry items. And you can use those vegetables in really small amounts if you like.
I had some leftover pasta from the other night and decided on a whim this morning to make it into pasta salad to go with lunch. It was really nice to be able to grab a strip each of red pepper, orange pepper, and celery to add, along with Japanese mayo, yellow miso, soy sauce, and vinegar.
My doctor appointment was yesterday in the afternoon, and I'd already had breakfast and lunch, so I had to pop back by this morning to get blood drawn. The lab opens at 7:15, which means having to skip everything but black coffee and water beforehand isn't so bad for most people. Since I get up at 4am and hate black coffee, it was torture. I drank it anyway, because I figured something I don't like the taste of is better than a headache.
I wanted to check out the Centennial Trail this afternoon, but since I was leaving in the car and at a weird time, I of course forgot my iPod. Didn't make it very far once I got there because music really makes the difference and I didn't like that section of the trail very much. It's 30 miles long, though, so there's plenty more to see. As long as I remember the music.
Today would have been a good day for a swim, but the pool's closed for the holiday. Yesterday would have been a good day for one, but I wasn't able to use it when I went. The visit before, I'd asked for clarification about the schedule, because I wasn't sure if I could only go when the schedule indicates "open swim." The woman at the front counter said I could come any time as long as I was by myself, and open swim was the only time kids could come. That's incorrect. Oh well!
