10 Sep

We are actually home!  I got this morning went for a bike ride and run while Dr. B took his car into the shop.  After my workout I took a swim, followed by a soak in the jacuzzi  (my legs were killing me).  We actually turned down an invitation to go to the beach (I think were getting old)…  Right now Dr. B is catching up on some work, while blog surf and shop online and watch football :-) It feels good to sit my butt home a relax.  What are you up to today?
