Open Space + Tarantulas

Since we are starting to lose daylight in the after work hours, David and I have been really trying to get outside while we still can. It's great PT for his leg - which is still mending from his accident - and it helps me not be so darn lazy. Most days...

What's awesome about where we live is that we are seconds away from downtown and minutes away from the gorgeous open space. I say all the time I am ready to high tail it out of here - but I often remind myself how wonderful of a place it really is. In reality I would be terribly homesick if I ever left.

Just some "slow me down" snaps - which is what David refers to my picture taking when we go out anywhere. It was a nice way to celebrate our anniversary (even though we did it the day before).

Side note: October is tarantula mating season - no joke. So we like to see who can spot one of them first. I can certainly marvel at them in their own space - but if I ever saw one in my home I would freak out! These guys are large and can move pretty fast. Yikes!

  2. You guys climb on Mt. Diablo? Believe it or not, I never did when I lived there, but it always looked gorgeous. Those tarantulas though... terrifying! I don't know if it's just how close you were in the picture (which by the way, you are WAY more brave than I) but it looks HUGE!

  7. We've been eating quick and simple dinners and then heading outdoors. We don't even clean up the kitchen until after C goes to bed so that we get every second of daylight possible.
