I learned this morning, that being in California doesn't magically restore physical fitness (as in: if you were sick for two months, and then have only done treadmill workouts for another two months, you will not be able to run three hilly miles just because you could last September. But you can run some, and walk some, and have a lovely chat with your wonderful daughter-in-law, who is a marathon runner).
After the morning *workout* (yes, I'm being sarcastic, though I did work up a sweat), we went to Ventura so the kids could participate in a Lowe's Build and Grow Project, which is a wonderful program where Lowe's puts on workshops for kids to build things. It's a fantastic notion, and the Grands built wooden Valentine music boxes. I need to write to Lowe's and tell them how much I appreciate this program.
After the lumberyard excursion, Elder Son and Wife surprised us with a boat tour of Channel Islands Harbor, complete with a picnic lunch and mimosas. The weather was perfect, the boat was lovely, the lunch was delicious, and the orange juice was hand-squeezed.
Tomorrow, I think we're doing something called a Waterfall Hike. I don't think I need to worry about running... I'm going to get plenty of exercise.
