Oct 4- Yesterday

Thursday, October 05, 2017

Yesterday was a terrific, exhausting day. We are season ticket holders for the Wednesday Matinee of San Fransisco Theater. We got up pretty early and my DH and I took a long walk around our neighborhood. I like to get dress decently for the theater so I wore clogs that have two-inch heels. I should have put on my walking shoes but my husband decided enroute that the walk should be longer than usual. By the time we got home my feet, calves and shoulders were hurting already. Our friends who we have tickets with us picked us up at 12:30. We have a deal that they drive and we pay for parking. I reserved a parking lot that was a five-minute walk to the theater. Ouch!

The play was An American in Paris and it was fabulous. We really enjoyed. Afterwards, our friends took off to have dinner and we walked the mile to a nice retirement celebration for our daughter-in-law's boss. My daughter-in-law, Kelly, works for a non-profit called Community Grows www.communitygrows.org/ Now that her boss retired, Kelly became Executive Director of the non-profit. She'll interact with the Board of Supervisors, and the Board of Public Works in San Francisco since her non-profit helps kids plant vegetable gardens all over San Francisco. The party was also a fundraiser for the Community Grows.

After the party, we had to walk the mile back to where the theater was so we get on the BART Train to take us to the Caltrain that would take us home. Then we walked from the train station ( about 3/4 of a mile) back home. It was a 13,464 step day which isn't much more than my usual amount steps but it sure is a difference when you don't have the right shoes on.


I had my last cup of coffee at 11:20 AM
I had my water bottle with me and had no problem drinking 64 oz of water.
But at the party, they had these adorable, delicious lollypops made out of Chocolate cake covered with chocolate coating and sprinkles as well as pink ones that looked like little people so I had to have a chocolate one so have to count that as candy. But I don't feel too guilty about it. It helped me feel better about walking that distance in those shoes.

    You had to try one of those lollipops - that's what makes life exciting. Sounds like you are sticking to your goals and you had a wonderful day too!

    Ugh on the walking in those shoes. Reminds me of the Kenny Chesney concert I went to and didn't know four other acts would be included and I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did (DH is the big country fan). I was dancing and a LOT of walking in less than comfortable shoes for six hours!!

    I hope you got a wonderful foot soak!

    I looked at that website. What a wonderful cause!!

    That's a whole lot of walking with shoes that hurt!!! OUCH!

    But it sounds like a fabulous day out other than that! (Was the play based on the movie of the same name? Music by Gershwin?)
