Four lovely days at Hidden Lake and a Wolfgang Puck Red Blend 2010

Yes, it rained Wednesday, but at 5:00 the sun popped out. Kathy said let's get outside, so we jumped in the car and headed for the path along the Puyallup river. We walked 3.7 miles yesterday, Kathy's personal best since her hip replacement. She was overcome with joy, the last time we were on this path she was in a wheel chair.

We also saw a plant with pretty flowers and what looked like sweet peas, if you know what this is please give us a shout.

Thursday, we went to Sorci's for an early dinner and did our walking all around Sumner. Our server was Sydney, the owner's daughter and she was very earnest. Kathy had the Gluten free Puttanesca Pizza and I had the two item lunch special, a Spinach Salad and 1/2 Fire Roasted Pork Panini. It was great to see Jeremiah again. Total before gratuity was $25.02. 

Friday, Kathy wanted to visit an Auburn park, so we went to the Game Farm park and did that path. Gorgeous day, fun walking by the river. I didn't work out in the classic sense, but did blow all the pine needles off the front porch and driveway and did the weed whacking in the front.

Saturday, a fourth gorgeous day in a row. Wanted to catch up on my blog, but today, I need to weed whack the back. As Tim Heath said, ivy is gorgeous, but it sure is aggressive. Three batteries later the ivy is in some degree of control.

Tonight we uncorked a DFV wine labeled as a Wolfgang Puck "Master Lot Reserve". The first sip did not move me so I let it breathe for 30 minutes and came back to it. It is fruity and chocolate, must have been aged in an oak barrel. It hasn't reached its peak, tastes young, if I have an opportunity, I think I will pick up another bottle and set a calendar entry for mid-2016.
