Vitamn D Day

Well, it was a glorious weekend, and aside from mowing the lawn for the first time this year I also went for a couple of walks yesterday. I walked to Fred Meyer to pick up some fertilizer for the raspberries and kneepads for my knees, and I came back through the Fremont Sunday Market to pick up some organic apples. The variety was new to me, but I can't remember the name now. After working in the garden for a bit -- in a tanktop, no less -- I walked up to the post office to check the Incunabula mailbox and then over to Bottleworks. Then down the spine of Wallingford ridge to the Pacific Inn for a chicken caesar salad and a few pages of The Olympic Rain Forest: An Ecological Web by Ruth Kirk and Jerry Franklin. (Fascinating stuff about the symbiotic relationship between fungus and tree roots.)

A marvelous day, except for the fact that I broke a tooth, and this morning I discovered that my dentist's office is closed until Thursday. Weird! I'll just have to gut it out on Vitamin D, I guess.

Bad news about the tooth, Randy. As for the marvelous day, this past Saturday was a great day here, too. I took the dogs off to Lick Creek Park and walked a total of 4 miles in about an hour and fifteen minutes. That's moving out! Great weather and a good bit of exercise, fresh air, and sunlight. Nothing better.

Yeah, moving around the sunshine is always good for the mood.

Sorry about the tooth! Ouch!

But the rest of the day sounds wonderful.

Yeah, it's been a strange trip dealing with this tooth. On the advice of my dentist (who called me from her house) I filed the sharp edge down using a nail file. Not before my tongue was sliced and diced, however.
