My Walking Buddy

Andy my walking partner

Andy and I went for a nice long walk today. He’s all about his Fitbit and counting how many steps he takes each day. He likes to let everyone know that he has taken the most steps. That is because he is in constant motion. Whether it is is feet or his mouth, one or both are always moving.

During our walk he had both going at a constant clip. We walked from our house through the whole Riverwalk over to a small waterfall, as you can see above. This was a place that I explored as a kid when my dad owned a house in that area. We’d go over and clean up the apartments and mow the lawn and make repairs. When I got breaks I’d go and explore. I remember that waterfall being so much bigger as a kid.

Taking walks with Andrew has been something I have tried to do the past few weeks because he’s got this pent up energy that he needs to release so he can focus on his work and also spend less time on the devices. He has a computer now (hand me down) but luckily, he’s only using it to play chess. The computer never tires of him wanting to play another game. I like that he has been playing chess on the computer. It will help him see more opportunities and mistakes before they happen when we play our next game.

Cinco de Mayo on a Taco Tuesday in 2020

Cinco De Mayo

Break out the tequila because today is Cindo de Mayo and it is also a Taco Tuesday. Here we had tacos of the beef and fish variety. I made margaritas for me and for Allison. No, that is not an actual margarita in Andy’s hands. He is having gatorade in one of our margarita glasses and Eva is having milk in hers. They just wanted to celebrate, too.

We had a fine meal and laughs. Andy misjudged putting down his glass and spilled gatorade everywhere, which was no fun but got a few more laughs. I had my one alcoholic drinks a year and it was quite tasty. One shot of tequila in mine. I’m good till next year. I certainly hope that next year, the word Corona has more to do with the beer than anything else.
