Another hot one yesterday. It was raining in a steady, steamy way in the morning, so I worked out by walking up and down the stairs with 10 pound weights in my hands. Every so often I stopped and swung the weights out in front or raised them overhead a few times, and then started on the stairs again. Later, Delycia and I walked briskly to the bank and back, climbing the hills with strong hearts.
I spent some time in the afternoon sitting in our air-conditioned bedroom, reading and appreciating the view out the big windows across the trees and roofs of Mystic.
Dinner to celebrate the 4th at Ann and Jim's. The burgers were the best I've had in a while, and my big green salad with homestyle dressing was a hit with all.
