What A Gorgeous Day--Wish It Wouldn't End

Today was just beautiful. Finally had good weather on a Saturday! This morning Gerard went to the gym and I had time to participate on some discussion forums while waiting for the temperature to rise. Gerard and I took advantage of the warm sunny day by playing tennis for the first time this year. We played an hour and a half which was longer than usual. I lost! He used his new racquet for the first time and won 6-3 and 6-4. We had a lot of deuces and I was just not up to speed. He played very well though but it just felt so good to be outside playing again, I really didn't mind losing.

We had lunch at Steak-n-Shake which was very good. I was so thirsty after playing tennis that I drank two waters right away. I had a vanilla shake, and a hamburger. I didn't want the fries but they brought them anyway but didn't charge me for them so I ate three. Gerard had a diet Coke, fries and a hamburger.

I had computer time again and cat time. Then it was off to the gym for my workout with the trainer on upper body. My legs were kind of tired from tennis. After that, we went for a walk in the park and saw kids playing in the creek, ducks swimming and a lot of dogs. We talked for a bit with one of the dog walkers there that volunteered at the Parma Animal Shelter. Then we went to check out the new animal hospital and veterinary clinic/pet spa that was recently built right next to the Animal Shelter that is only about five minutes from our house. We wanted to check it out because we're thinking of taking our cats there for their annual checkups instead since it's so close to us so would be less stressful for them.

Then, to top things off, the Indians whop the Yankees big time again--22-4! LOL!!! I watched from the 5th inning on. I had hoped to play some catch, but my feet were just too tired and the Bruins are on so Gerard is watching that now.

What a great day, I hate to see it end! How was your Saturday? What did you do fun?

Daisy--Yes, you are right! Any day spending time with my cats is a good day . . . and night too if they come on the bed with us.

April--My cats don't get in my way when I'm at the computer. They'll come near me and sometimes my husband will put Spunky on my lap to get me to take a break. It always works. I can't resist petting her. She doesn't stay long though, 5 seconds to a minute. My dad had a cat that was a climber. Mine both have had their front claws removed. Manny was like that when I got him and Spunky was so rambunctious as a kitten around our older cat who was declawed in the front that I thought it was only fair so he didn't get scratched by Spunky. I felt really bad but she has forgiven me.
