Springtime Tuesday

OK, finally it feels like the weather is going to start cooperating with spring-time. Whew. I was not going to make it much longer. Hey, p.s., did you know that the start of spring is the vernal equinox, or the time at which the Northern hemisphere tilts towards, rather than away from, the sun? That's obvious interesting, right? 

Anyway, now is a pretty time in Boulder, since the mountains still have snow but the sun is really out, the days are longer, and the temps are creeping upwards. This is a picture I took this morning on the way home from a doctors appointment.

After my appointment I had scant time to eat lunch before a 12:30 p.m. class at my gym. So, I went to Whole Foods, which is next door to my gym, where I had some caprese salad and an Irish soda bread roll from the stash that Dorothy, Adam, and Sarah gave us.

I swear there were many more mini-tomatoes in that container. It wasn't all balls of mozzarella...

On a total random note, Whole Foods was giving away chocolate chip cookies for people who "round up" their bill total to help a local elementary school raise money.

The thought of jumping around in my gym class with a big cookie in my stomach is the only thing that kept me from eating most or all of this cookie.

After my class at the gym I headed to run some errands, including picking up a skirt that I had mended and going by REI to buy a carry-on luggage bag.

Thrilling, right? But in fact it was nice to run around town in the spring sunshine.

Also thrilling? Coming upon a sumo wrestling match on my way out of Whole Foods:

Another random little twist to Tuesday.

  1. This post has just made me want to spend a lot more time at the Boulder Whole Foods!

    1. It is a pretty fun place to be--in the summer especially!
