Weekend Check-in: 👻 Saturday, 10/23/21

Good morning from the desert, Blendies, where the cacti are evergreen and fall feels like late spring! Sharing a picture of saguaro cacti in my mom’s backyard. Did you know that it takes 50-75 years for a saguaro to sprout its first arms?! Talk about slow growth! They store extra water in their arms, and can live for hundreds of years!

There’s your Saturday science lesson, folks! But what’s going on with fitness and food today? Are you sweating/resting/stretching/lifting/hiking…the list could go on! I think I am resting. Maybe some stretches, but that’s about it.

And we gotta eat, so what’s going to be on your plates today? I am going to my dad’s house to celebrate his birthday, and he is grilling a whole bunch of meats (even though he’s a vegetarian! 🤷🏽‍♀️), and that’s all I know.

Since I’ll be partying with my dad 😜 I will do my best to reply to everyone, but if I don’t, please know that I’ll definitely be reading!
