More than view, the horticulture center hosts a wonderful little certified organic garden full of summer goodies like herbs, greens, and row after row of plump strawberries. I have to admit, it crossed my mind to scale the fence and have a quick breakfast in the berry patch. To be honest, just looking at the picture makes we want to throw on a disguise and head out into the dark of night... Ok. Not really, but they looked so juicy!
But most exciting, was that we took Dave's niece to Watsonville to see "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Aren't we a great Aunt and Uncle? Ok. Really, I've been foaming at the mouth to see this flick and it just so happened Kacie wanted to see it too. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint, although similar to the book, we've gone into overdrive with the whole teenage hormone thing. Any Harry Potter fans out there? I promise I won't spoil it for anyone who has yet to see it. Just go! It was awesome!
Last, but certainly not least, I signed up to do Chile Chews' Park Your Car Challenge. I know, I already do most of my weekly errands by bike, but I'm challenging myself to work just a little harder. The trick for me (and usually the only time I'm in the car) is weekends when I go to the farmers' market (with all my booth supplies) or Dave and I go out together for lunches. We have no public transportation on weekends and in 100+ degree weather, it's tough to bike or walk, but I'll figure something out. Every little thing adds up, right? The challenge starts on August 1 and quite a few people have already signed up to join. I'm looking forward to hearing all the tips from participants who are already car-free, so be sure to head on over and add your name to the list.
That's all for today. There's talk of heading over to the boardwalk yet this week and I still want to catch Food Inc at the theater just down the hill. See ya next time!
