What I’ve Been Up To, September, part 1

Cruising into September…

Yes, it was the summer of Pokemon Go. This still cracks me up over a month later. My friend Meredith told me there was a Pikachu in our stairwell at lunch – and then there was Alex…

We’d left the pond and I was so sad we didn’t catch this one over the water.

We had a movie night with actual popcorn and finally watched that Tom Cruise movie Edge of Tomorrow. I’m such a huge Emily Blunt fan these days. I really liked the movie.

We got a tip an other local park, from a kid we ran into at a gym at the pond. Kid said there was a seel nest – and he was right! We caught enough in two days (hard to argue with beautiful weather and nice walking trails) to evolve a dewgong too!

Someone had done cool carvings out of fallen trees at the park.
