SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 (Wednesday)
Happy birthday Falcata! Love you.
Lazy morning. We finally got rolling and going around 11 AM. We went into Ketchum and just walked around. We checked out the local supermarket, Atkinson’s, the drug store near it, a shoe store – Ozzie’s Shoes, and the park across the street.
Afterwards we drove to Sun Valley Road and walked around. We went into a local art studio, the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (where we could not resist buying a little something – $17.00 worth), and sat in the giant rocking chair with red cowboy boots. Fun. I felt like Edith Ann from Laugh In on the giant chair.
We went and did our blog at the Tamarack Lodge and had a nice visit with Tara, the reservationist. She is great. She’s been there for four years and is very informed and fun. We mentioned the door handle on our patio door being broken and she called the maintenance man right away and had it taken care of. We were at the Tamarack Lodge for almost two hours. Sure wish we had internet in our home.
We left and went back to our place for lunch. We have so much food we need to eat up or we will have to throw it away. When we got there, the maintenance man was still working on the door. He was good and finished up just a few minutes after we got there. We each scrounged for our lunch. Lexi and I had some NutriSystem soups that brother John had given us. They weren’t too bad. We’ve been munching on the little NutriSystem snacks for days and are liking most of them.
Around 3:30 or 4:00 PM, we left for the pool. We were glad to hear the hot tub had been fixed. We got into the hot tub and got to talking to a nice man. We really enjoyed his sense of humor and stories. He used to be a fisherman and in off season would live in different places. He’s retired and a local now. We left there around 5:00 PM.
I fixed dinner – pasta with green beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic, onions, chicken, salad, and bread. I was impressed with it and enjoyed it, even if I do say so myself. While I was preparing everything, Lexi ran to the Tamarack Lodge to do some emails. She came home just in time to get it while it was hot.
That was our day. Hope yours was great!
