There were quite a few people at the zoo when we went on Sunday. Not the most crowded I've ever seen, but the weather was nice and many people had the same idea as jebra. Well, maybe not the exact same idea. He noticed that the zoo was green (as in owned by the Ingress frogs) and thought we could go there and play as it would be easy points and it was a nice day for a walk. We were at the zoo for about two hours; that combined with the two hours of biking later that night made my knees very unhappy with me when it came time to try to sleep. On the other hand, my blood sugar was excellent the following morning. And I did enjoy our time at the zoo. I'd never had a good look at camel's underside before, nor did I know that they can act like cats and stretch out on their backs and expose their tummies to the sun. The camels were particularly vexing to me this trip as they're shedding like crazy and I coveted their fiber. Camelhair makes some mighty fine yarn (not that I can spin. Someday I hope to learn).
I called my mom as we were leaving the zoo as it seemed like a good idea. She was out having lunch with her girlfriends and having a great day. No real news from her other than she has two follow-ups with her doctors this week plus an appointment with her dentist.
In gardening/backyard news, snow is gone, the ground is still rather squishy, and the rhubarb is starting to come up. The temperature was warm enough on Saturday that I *finally* emptied the two pails of compost that we got from the zoo on Earth Day 2018. Hopefully it will feed the rhubarb well as some of this year's crop is going to my boss' mom. I also have plans to tear out the old herb garden (the sides of the bed were constructed from pine boards and are more compost than boards at this point, plus Costco is now selling a keyhole garden and I've been wanting to try gardening in one of those for ages.
