Back To The Hall

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I hope you took some time to think about his contributions to our country and our world.

I got back to walking in the hall to get my exercise all at once instead of spreading it out throughout the day. I walked 2.16 miles in about 40 minutes. And of course since there is nothing to look at in the hall, I have a hall picture to share.

For dinner my wonderful husband baked a chicken! It was delicious.

By the end of the day I had walked 4.43 miles and got 10,180 steps.

Museum Walk

Today we went to the National Gallery of Art. We wanted to see the new Vermeer exhibit but the line was SO long. We didn’t think we could stand in that long line.

We decided we would wander around the 18th and 19th century painters and see their paintings. We saw some really nice paintings. It was fun walking around, studying a painting and then talking about what we see. It seems like we must have walked into 30 or so rooms. Here are some paintings I really enjoyed:

After a few hours of viewing paintings we decided to have some lunch. We went to the museum cafe. It happened to be the same cafe we went to on our very first date. We had fun reminiscing about our first date.

After lunch we decided to head over to the Hirshhorn Museum across the mall.

While we do enjoy some contemporary art, the exhibits we saw today were just odd. It might be that we are getting old or something but they just weren’t enjoyable like they have been in the past.

We walked the entire museum but just didn’t find anything we enjoyed. So it was time to go home. We ordered up an Uber and went home. We then had a relaxing evening.

Walked a total of 3.55 miles today.

Winery Visit

We haven’t been to a winery in awhile. We decided to go to Delaplane Cellars today. We had wine to pick up. We tasted some nice wines and enjoyed some cheese and bread with a glass of wine afterwards. I got some nice photos with my iPhone 8 Plus. We had a really nice day.

I walked 1.71 miles when we got home today.

Date Night Walk

2.76 miles today. I went so far because I counted the distance from the car to the restaurant for date night dinner. We went to 2 Amy’s for pizza. It was good! We had a nice bottle of wine can caught up on the date. It was a lovely evening.

No Walking

Today I did not do any walking. We traveled to Warrenton to stay over so that we could be up early tomorrow morning for harvest at Gray Ghost Vineyards. We went to dinner tonight and Warren was excited about being at Clair’s At The Depot for dinner.

I did get on the scale this morning though and see that I’m done to 209. Since October last year I’ve lost 18 pounds. yay! Next goal is to be under 200.
