Evening all! Today was a good day. We scoped out a new church, had Mexican for lunch, went to Lowes for some home improvement stuff, worked in the yard, went for a golf cart ride, made dinner, all before 6:00. We got some pine straw and automatic lights for the front and back yard and we put up some plants that we had gotten before we moved in. We still have more plants to plant but that’s for another day! I will have to remember to take pictures of our finished front yard later.
Anyway, I want to back track to yesterday. Some of you MAY have remembered me saying that one of the draws for us to move into this neighborhood was the town center about to be built. They just started phase one which includes a pool, café, market, amphitheater, boardwalk around the lake, and a YMCA! I am STOKED. I will be able to walk to the gym, it’s so close! They broke ground back in December and are finally about to pour the slab! The projected open date is August. I wish they would hurry it up a but but you know how that goes.
So yesterday we went on a walk and I took so pictures of the area they are working on for you all!
quick shot of the house in the late afternoon
sorry for the obnoxious sun picture
they just planted the trees this morning. I saw them on my way to town yesterday and since I am so nosy we had to go scope them out.
NERD ALERT pictures coming up…..
I told you.
last one is the site where the building is going! woo hoo, we have DIRT!
As I said before I am hoping this opens in August, because that is right when I will start gearing up for half marathon season again, and having a treadmill/machines/classes to have a well-rounded training cycle would be really nice!
Speaking of training, Bobby and I are running a 5k Saturday and I have run twice in the last 10 days, but very slow jogs of 2-2.5 miles each. oops. My knee has really been bothering me since all the moving, lifting climbing stairs, but hopefully I will still manage to pull out a PR. First race in my new town!!!
Also as promised here are a couple sneak peek pics of the house. More to come I promise!
PS-my article in the New Orleans Health magazine called Fit should be out this week!!!

PPPS-I don’t have anything else to say I just felt like saying “PPPS”
QOTD: Can you walk or bike to your gym? Do you like your gym?
