Today was a busy day.  It was almost 60 degrees and sunny.  That’s been a missing combination in North Eastern Ohio lately.  I started the day with a haircut.  It was nice and relaxing.

Then, the family and I headed to Holden Arboretum.  We had planned earlier in the week to do something outside on Saturday, based on the forecast.  We knew that our Botanical Gardens membership would give us free admission.  However, when we arrived, we quickly figured out it was Arbor Day and admission was free for everyone.


Here’s Nick enjoying the machines at the mobile sawmill and Sally enjoying her snack in the car as we headed home.


I spent the afternoon making whole wheat pumpkin ravioli.  I froze some and we had some for dinner.  It actually turned out quite well and I learned a lot from practice.

After dinner, we headed to the North Chagrin Reservation, specially the Duck Pond.  Nick and Sally enjoyed the frog and toad statues.  But, we saw many more geese than ducks.



It was an active and very nice day with the family.

Next up: cardio in the morning.
