Yoga in the morning, and a picture of my Pincha Mayurasana. And I got into it fairly easily. Whew.
The belt around my arms keeps my elbows from splaying out, something I just cannot yet control without assistance.
Pack, run load of dishes, toss towels in washer.
Head out to Corvallis to look at a house for sale and a quick exposure to the city as a possible retirement community.
Himself's comment on Corvallis is that the downtown area looks well cared for, with none of the disuse we see in some downtowns.
Not run down and not ritzy is a follow up as we drive through Junction City.
house is on property that is much more elevationally exposed than the
photos reveal. I do like the community though, so I will keep an eye on
property in the area.
notice a lot of wildlife along the major roadways. That indicates a
fairly healthy ecosystem, or they would not be so close to civilization.
is determined to use the Garmin GPS unit to navigate to gas stations.
If it says there's an Exxon there, there should be an Exxon. Unless it
has another name and Garmin has not updated their system. Disregard
the fact that I have the exxonmobil site pulled up on my phone showing
the current locations, nope, you will enter the data that Garmin tells
you to ... So, fine.
least we are not driving out if the way when we get to the
ConocoPhillips station that Garmin has directed us to visit!!! And Kira
is right again.
at Cornbread Cafe, Fried Tempeh with Mac n UnCheese, and fries; a
salad; and portobello with mashed potatoes and gravy, and sautéed
spinach. I get too many desserts to go ... And himself gets jalapeño
cornbread to go! :)
We drive along watching the terrain get hillier and drier as we head south.
Stop at Ashland co-op for food fixins. I'm quite impressed by the co-ops in Oregon, they are well stocked and highly variable.
Slowly wending our way to the rental south of the city, the area is gorgeous, dry, and isolated.
Weather tells me it will not be dry much longer.
wi-fi, no internet at all. But we do have a tv, and room for yoga
downstairs. I may be doing a LOT of yoga in the next
couple days ...
