Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. I made him a cake and took him for a little jaunt to the Botanical Gardens. It was a very enjoyable interlude in the day.

I was working on an article about green exercise at the time and needing a couple hundred more words, so I was thinking I could include thoughts on preparing for outdoor sports and adventures. I asked my husband for his thoughts on the subject, and he informed me that one should make sure there aren’t any tigers.

I felt pretty sure there weren’t any tigers at the botanical gardens, and sure enough, our visit there was entirely tiger free. Lovely gardens, though.

There was also bell practice, choir practice, the last day of face to face classes, and an interview with a motivational speaker. That’s a bracing experience, I can tell you.
