My Best Friend and I knew we had plans tonight, so we moved our Weekly Wednesday Walk to Tuesday.  I was still a little sore from Monday, but she didn’t really give me a choice.  And, I knew it was now or never.  It’s so good to have someone push you in the right direction.  Once we got started on our stroll through the park, my body didn’t even realize that I was working out until after the first mile or so.   Being lazy, I asked my friend if we had to the do the whole 3 miles since I had done 3 miles yesterday.  She told me that “she” didn’t do 3 miles yesterday and to keep walking.  I don’t know where all this laziness is coming from.  It’s a little bit of staying up too late (like now it’s already after 1 AM) mixed with just plain old slacking off.  However, we did finish the whole 3 miles…..  Today, we went to a free summer concert at the Missouri Botanical Gardens.  It was so nice!  I met some former co-workers who saved us a great spot near the stage.  I think there had to be thousands of people there.  There were families and couples and friends, sharing picnic food and wine.  I brought some sparkling Moscato wine and cheese and crackers.  We passed around other sharables.  My bubbly wine was a big hit.  The ambiance was so nice, these pics don’t even do it justice.  It was a perfect night, a cool breeze, smooth jazz surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees.  Even amongst so many people, it felt private.  It made me wonder how FREE events like this can go on and I didn’t even know about it.  Some people sat with their eyes closed and inhaled the tunes, while other wildly danced around the stage.  The singer Dawn Weber had several different horns and great jazzy funky band called the Electro Funk Assembly that appealed to all music tastes.  It was a wonderful way to unwind from the stresses of the day.  There are a few more concerts before the summer is over, and I hope that I will get to go again.
