Geocaching, Basketball & PT

It was a slow day here in the park.  

Gerry had PT this afternoon and went up to have her neck twisted and pulled around for an hour.  She came back to the MH sorer  than when she went up there, but that is typical.  After a little while she started to feel human again.

I managed to watch a little basketball to see who the good teams are and who was overrated.  There were some upsets with Harvard beating Cincinnati in a good game.  North Dakota State put a big loss on Oklahoma which was a surprise to me and the Sooners.  North Carolina State should have beaten St. Louis Univ., but the Wolfpack players couldn't hit their free throws.  Dayton put a loss on their big brother to the North, Ohio State Univ. which was a surprise.  Of course, that is why they play the game.

Gerry suggested we go geocaching and we went out close by the park and picked up a few caches.  We had to drive down a very rough desert road to get to the caches.  Then it was a short walk to the caches, which were easy to find.  They have a habit of covering the caches out here with branches and rocks which make them stand out very much. 

Who is that guy out there in the desert?

It is getting to that time of year when the rattlesnakes and scorpions start to become very active.  I am very careful when walking in the desert while looking for the caches and don't want to upset any of those critters.  So far, so good.

We took advantage of a sale at Fry's to buy some corned beef and Gerry fixed it in the crockpot today.  It cooked all afternoon and we had it for dinner tonight.  It was even better than what we had at the Irish Pub the other day.  Superb!

We got home in time to see a beautiful sunset.

As I said at the beginning of the blog, not much to write about, but there are days like this.  The weather was great with a nice warm day and just a little breeze.  All in all, it was a great day.

How was your day and did you do anything interesting?

  1. My day was busy at work! I prefer yours! Stephanie flew 1st class to St Louis today to be with Shawn this weekend. The rest of us NC State fans are still in disbelief and crying in our beer. Tomorrow promises to be beautiful, but the pollen's terrible
